Tasting at Papsø
Hazy blond color. Aroma of plastic and puke. Correct body strength, sweetish malt flavor, then I have the impression of drinking a vegetables soup. Low bitterness. Uncontrolled fermentation, like all French beers.

thewolf (11362) - Kolding, DENMARK - APR 3, 2010
Bottle, bought @ Vinspecialisten, Kolding Storcenter.
Pours hazy yellow-golden with a small, frothy, white head. Aroma has green apples, light yeast, a bretty touch and fine malts. High carbonation, fine oily and light dry mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet, malty, good apple zest, softly vinious and still a slight bretty note. Fine and very drinkable.

DeanF (1746) - Nunavut, CANADA - MAR 25, 2010
Pours feisty, exploded as soon as I unwound the wire and... there goes my shirt. But anyways, has an okay head that fades really quick, colour is hazy orange. Aroma is a sort-of lambic bent with lots of hops, citrus, orange peel. The taste is quite good - a mix of hops and malt, some sour notes. Comes off a little "wet", though, should be drier in my opinion. Otherwise, rather nice.

mabel (7060) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 13, 2010
[2698-20100113] 750mL bottle. Mild toasted yeast aroma has sugary donuts hints. Hazy, light orange brown body with a medium-lasting creamy white head and tons of suspended floaties. Mild grainy toast yeast flavour is very pleasant. Medium body has a little tang. Not outstanding but quite drinkable and agreed with me tonight.

blankboy (6426) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 24, 2010
My bottle [750ml] shared with HogTownHarry, garthicus, jerc, mabel & GregClow. Pours a clear gold with a small diminishing white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, fruit, light sugary sweetness, a hint of hops and some apple -- also a touch sour. Flavour of yeast, grain, pale malt, alcohol and some light tart fruit. Medium bodied. Just O.K., I don’t love Triples and this seems like an average one.
