MiP (13607) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2009 Bottle, 5.5%. The aroma starts off weakly fruity, with some vanilla from the oak. Some citric aroma notes as well, reminding me of Brett. Quite cloudy dark grey brown colour. Very small white head. The flavour starts off citric, very fruity and vinous. Tastes like grape juice, and even more acidic. Nicely refreshing. Some vanilla in the aftertaste, slightly rough bitterness.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 13, 2009
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Slightly hazy amber golden with a creamy beige head leaving laces. Leaky and gushing bottle. Tart, woody aroma. Light body, tart with good woody accents and a light fruitiness. Dry, sour finish with a hint of metal. Should be classified as a Sour - and it’s a good one. 220809

douglas88 (6042) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 12, 2011
An interesting beer we got from Belgium. Pours a dark copper color with a medium white head. The aroma is very vinous with some strawberries and tartness. A sweet vinous brew with some caramel and dusty yeast, a bit of lacto and sourness but very smooth. Dry. Quite nice.

Changed (360) - Ithaca, New York, USA - FEB 19, 2012
Sample Max’s Belgian beer fest. Pours clear, no head. Sour fruity aroma. Sharp tartness that mellows and is fairly complex. Different-- never had something like this.

Countbeer (4479) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - FEB 15, 2014
Bottle: Served in a Gueuze tumbler: Gusher. Small lively and quick disappearing off white to light beige foamy head on top of a hazy orange amber colored beer. Aromas of cellar, brett, some wood, some light vinous tones with grapes, some hay, old flowers and rope. Bit lambic like aroma. Flavour is like a mix of an Belgian Oud Bruin and a Lambi/Geuze beer: wood, grapes, older hops, herbs, light grainy cheese tint, some light tartness, a sprinkle of brown sugars, herbs, some light sharper citrus ish fruity tunes, dust, brett, some caramel and some malts. Aftertaste is light tart with wood, some malts, light bitters, sprinkle of brown sugars some nuts and herbs. Low carbo, light creamy mouthfeel, medium to fuller bodied and a light watery texture. Bit like a Lambic, also tones of a Belgian Oud Bruin, but not as powerfull as those two styles, but not even close to bad! Nice and easy drinkable!
