Papsoe (25079) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 24, 2013
Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of fiulijn. Pours an opaque dark brown with a reddish hue. Absolutely no head. Greasy hops in the nose combined with dark dried tart fruit. Medium body, completely flat, tart, rotten fruit, berry-like – as in red wine – somewhat woody. I don’t really like the acidity this one represents. 230213

hopscotch (9733) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 21, 2013
Bottle... Blazer’s low-key O-Town Throwdown 2012... Pours nearly black with no head. The aroma is comprised of dark fruits - mainly dried plum and raisin- but there’s some black cherry here as well. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and nearly no carbonation. The flavor is tart, but chocolaty and provides sour cherries and dried plums. Tart, prune finish. I could have lived without all the dried plum in this one, but it’s still enjoyable.

crossovert (8186) - Illinois, USA - JAN 1, 2013
Another "suprise" sour form these guys. Im used to it now. I woudl have loved a complex ice bock but this very spciy, herbal, sour, cherry "flemish red" is pretty good too.
