Plovmand (6176) - Helsinge, DENMARK - JAN 31, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours amber with a small off white head. The aroma is leather, sweet malt, citrus and tart berries. The flavor is tart ripe berries, acid, leather and marmalade. Good mix of sweetness and tart fruit. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

gEUS (890) - Linden, BELGIUM - JAN 26, 2014
Bottle 2008 - at sloshfest. Thanks Vincent (BelgBeerGeek). Pours deep amber with a brown hue. Slight to no head. Subtle forest notes, nuts and barnyard funk. Makes one think a lot of the T25, let it be a bit more refined.

egajdzis (5194) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 27, 2013
Hazy amber color with a small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of brett, bacteria, wood, lemon, and light citrus. Taste is sour, bacterias, lighter fruits, with some sweeter notes before finishing dry.

Damico (2353) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 22, 2013
Pours amber thick and unclear with no head. Aroma is light lambic tart yeast, not much though. Body is full and juicy with a dry ending. Tart flavor is smooth and well balanced without bringing puckering. Some light white grape flavors are really nice.

Brown dredge, no head. Aroma of balsamic vinegar and the stables of an upscale country club. Taste is smooth but sour with hints of brown sugars. Very low carbonation.
