Bottle number 02636

White head. Burnt sunset orange.

Very sour. Apple cider vinegar but not as intense as Braggs. Oaky and funky. Tart with lemon acidity. Maybe a bit past it's prime since it has lost some of the gueuze flavors and the sour has taken over. I can imagine this being stunning a few years back. A very fun beer to try.

Reviewed from notes. Poured from a corked and caged bottle a dark, hazy orange with a few bubbles. Aroma is funky cheese and fruit. Flavor is sour lemony astringency, oak and cork. Semi-medium body and semi-moderate carbonation. Dusty, sour lemon finish.

1999 vintage. Paid more than I care to admit at DHL in August 2014. This was sour and acetic (acetic to a major fault in my opinion). Difficult to finish.

It wasn't the age that did it in my opinion, as I've had many aged beers which oxidize beautifully with hints of sherry and mushrooms. No, this was just solventy.
