[ As my rating # 17000 on ratebeer ]. Clear medium amber color with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, caramel, wood, barnyard, honey - brown sugar, bread, oxidide notes. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and light to moderate acidic with a long duration, dark sugar, sour rye bread, oxidide. Like bock - geuze. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

Ungstrup (29493) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 28, 2010
Bottled. An unclear amber beer with a huge, but collapsing off-white head. The aroma has notes brettanomyces, mold, cork, and a bit of caramel. The flavor is sour with notes of brettanomyces, lemon, and mold as well as sweet notes of caramel, leading to a dry and tart finish, where the lemony and moldy note lingers. Thanks yespr for sharing.

Papsoe (25084) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 2, 2010
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours a cloudy opaque golden with a creamy white head leaving laces. Intense and delicious oak aroma combined with funkiness. Medium body, again plenty of wood, tart fruit accents and Lacto yet with an underlying sweetness. Yummy indeed. 280910

oh6gdx (20668) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 6, 2010
Bottled@fonefan. Amber colour, not that much head. Aroma is a bock beer meeting a gueuze along with quite sugary notes. Flavour is quite much the same. Nice dry, but sweetish sour brew.

   AROMA 9/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 9/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 17/20
omhper (19695) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 4, 2011
Bottled at Pressklubben, Stockholm. Hazy amber, minimal head. Juicy concentrated aroma of horseblanket, vinegar and raisins. Acidic with a slight sweetish overlay. Soft and rounded with lots of juicy citrus. Above medium bodied with a slight, mild alcohol warmth. The richness and complexity is put even more on open display by the slighy sweetness and warmth. The downside is that is a bigger, slightly less drinkable beer, indeed more suitable for winter temperatures.

25th Spetember 2010. Borefts Beer Festival II.
Not an official beer on the fest list, can’t remember who produced this as I was pretty merry on Kaggen and Machtig & Mooi Cognac Barrel. So whoever this was - thank you! Haz y amber beer with a small white head. Lovely crisp palate, dry as well. Spicy sourness, a litttle vinegary. Finishes dy. Not bad!

Courtesy of Koelschtrinker, bottled 25/01/2008, 4 years old
Amber color, clear, with moderate carbonation, and small head. Very nice aroma, with malt, brown sugar, cookie dough, sweet smoke, wood and light funkiness. The body strength is normal, less than expected, but more than the average; the mouthfeel is quite dry in the front, it gets sweeter later; malt flavor, stronger than any other Lambic, with some fudge, brown sugar, bread, lemonish acidity. Indeed a strange one; good character but inferior to most lambics, and not enough sweet to be a Faro; interesting, not spectacular.
