Pinball (10928) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2010
clear brown, small smooth offwhite head. nice aroma, slightly vineous, some wood, delicate. very good aroma. flavor is slightly sourish/flowery/tart, caramelly, extremely smooth, lots of flavor for a 5% and it tastes real good. a little too much sugar perhaps. the flowery sourish faint note really balances the beer very well.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2010
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of Pinball. Pours a clear orangey brown with a small off-white head. Tart cherry aroma - quite yummy. Medium body, very sweet roasted malts, a discreet tartness, woody and metallic - clearly some Bourgogne has been blended with another beer here. Ends sweet. 280710

Stew41 (1754) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - JUN 13, 2010
Authentic for the style; tangy, weird sour funkiness happening. All good but doesn’t have the intensity of say Rodenbach.

dEnk (4044) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 30, 2010
Bottle @ home. Deep brownish black pour, red glow, medium tanned head. Aroma of fruits, yeast, some metal, plum and faint raisin. Flavour is a weird sour sweetness of cherry with a nasty metallic sidenote. No drain poor, but only just.

jaghana (4152) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - MAY 29, 2010
Bottle 33cl. A reddish brown ale with very low carbonation. Aroma is very near the "Duchesse de Bourgogne" but less sweet and less complex. Aroma is vinous, less sour, cherry like with wood taste and some burn alcohol notes. Not bad, well balanced, good cherry aftertaste.

MesandSim (7118) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2010
A Mes rate. Bottle from I know not where.
Dark brown with a thin beige head. Very fruity, rather sweet and generally as the sour version without the sourness. Slight toast and earth in the finish. Drinkable but very dull.
