yespr (31080) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - OCT 6, 2007
75 cL bottle, thanks to Ungstrup. Pours red with no head. Aroma is sulphorish and raspberry citric aroma with an underlying woody note. Flavour is quite sharp, berry (and beyond raspberry) and strong acidic flavours. This is utterly great.

Ungstrup (29224) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 2, 2007
Bottled. An unclear red beer with a lazing pink head. The aroma is acidic with strong notes of raspberries as well as some wood - quite complex. The flavor is also acidic with strong notes of raspberries as well as other fruits.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 2, 2007
(Bottle 75 cl) Courtesy of Ungstrup. Pours a slightly cloudy, warm reddish with a neat, pinkish head. Complex and extraordinary fruitiness in the aroma. Medium body with a very sharp acidity, very fresh berry notes and some weird mineral touches. No, this is actually salty! Very sharply acidic all through the finish. I find this quite interesting as it is, but I believe I will find it even more pleasant and mellow after some years. If only that weird salinity would go away. 280907

joergen (20664) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2007
Bottle. Hazy red coloured with an off white head. Light acidic aroma of wood and berries. Light acidic flavour of wood, raspberries, marzipan, cherries, and cherry stones. Tart finish.

oh6gdx (20299) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 28, 2007
Bottled. Muddy red colour with small head. Aroma is raspberries, sourness and slight mild acidicness. Flavour is really sour and dry raspberries. Already quite promising, so it would be nice to see what a bottle will be in some years.

omhper (19333) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 31, 2007
Bottled at RBESG ’07. Deep cloudy red, brief pink head. Fresh aroma of ripe raspberries. Dry and tart with a fruity citric acidity that keep growing. Fruit hides the barnyard, the berry flavour is aoft and mouthfilling and the mouthfeel gently sparkling. Great beer, but I’m not sure it’s one of my favourites from Drie Fonteinen.

anders37 (16586) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 16, 2007
Bottle. Pours a dark ruby red color with a small pinkish white head. Fruity sour tart raspberry aroma. Sour fruity raspberry flavor with some hints of tart cherries. Fruity slightly tastr finish with a long aftertaste of raspberries. Lovely.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Sharp and mouth water inducing sourness. Fruity and with a dry finish. Not bad but can’t drink a lot.

Plastic cork
Cloudy ruby color, no head. Strong aroma, Morello cherries, raspberries (well mature), then the classic cellar touch; some plastic too; everlasting aroma. Medium sourness, astringent mouthfeel, with a mix of every citrus fruit, lemon and grapefruit winning on the others for the sourness, somehow a very light sweetness too; fruity (mainly raspberries and pink grapefruit) and balanced, perfect. Long final, with a touch of woody astringency too. Great.
