RBESG2008: 75 cL bottle. Pours hazy orange with a slowy collapsing white head. Aroma is dry wooden and orange fruity. Flavour is smooth orange fruity and nicely acidic with a light yeasty touch towards the finish. Nice wooden base to a delicate orange citric flavour into the finish. Nice lingering dry and light sulphorish into the far finish. Very smooth and balanced.

Ungstrup (29217) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 9, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2004 OK, my tastebuds have evolved over the past 9 months: A hazy orange beer with a huge collapsing head. The aroma is sour, with notes of wood and grapefruit. And the flavor is lovely sour with notes of grapefruit. ------& unclear orange beer with a fine but fast disappearing head. The aroma is sour and metallic. The flavor is a sour geueze flavor. A good geueze but not great. Too sour for my tastebuds. = 5/3/5/3/11

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 1, 2008
(Bottle 75 cl) Lightly hazy golden with a rough off-white head. Fresh, astringent, Brettish nose. Medium body with a fairly complex Brett character and a lightly astringent and sour finish. But actually a fairly mellow and drinkable gueuze. 290608

Bottled. Deep goldeny orange colour with mediumsized white head. Aroma is sourness, wood and slight hints of leather. Flavour is earthy, wooden, slightly fruity bitterness and overall really sour. A really pleasant Gueuze.

omhper (19309) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 28, 2003
UPDATED: APR 29, 2003 Bottled. This unlabelled 75cl bottle is not exactly what I drink any day, so it was poured with great care. Dark yellow and hazy with rich lively head. Tart, barnyardy aroma. Citric and acidic with clean malt profile. Dry and lightly grassy with bitterish finish.

Cloudy copper color; huge foam; nice lace. Beautiful aroma, cellar, cobwebs, gently sweet. Good mouthfeel, not so sour, but really astringent.
Lovely and easily drinkable; Jens Ungstrup and me are having it with our Sunday brunch at PlanB, and this is the perfect match to it!
