yngwie (15759) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 6, 2008
Bottle at the Belgian Embassy in Oslo. I really though I had rated this a long time ago, and I sure have had it on some occasions, but finally a rating entered. It pours a copper to amber body, hazy, with a beige head. Slightly sourish, vinegarish nose, still sweetish, with dried fruits and malts. The flavor starts with dried fruits and a sourish note, not as sourish as I could wish for, actually it’s quite sweet too. The dried fruits, sourness and sweetness goes all the way into the finish. Full-bodied and slightly sticky. It’s a nice beer, still I wish it was more hardcore. (080410)

Rune (9661) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 17, 2008
Hazy, brown hue supported by a snowy white tophead. Cherries aroma. Refreshing drinkability with a flavour of berries, caramel sweetness, yeast and a bittersweet finish. Worth repeating (sampled at BBF, Oslo 10.04.2008).

larstangaa (104) - DENMARK - JAN 15, 2008
Dark red/brown. A strange, but supprisingly pleasent sour ale. Extremely vinous, a bounch of oak taste, of course a bit acidic, but well balanced with sweetness and dark berries... A sour ale that becomes me - thos must be a first... (Tasted at the BASMOF Nytårskur 07/08 12-01-2008)

KimJohansen (10404) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - JAN 6, 2008
Dark red with no head. Sweet sour aroma with notes of balsamico. Flavor is mostly sweet but with some sour notes. Cherry and wood notes. To sweet for a flemish sour.

Maria (10190) - Thisted, DENMARK - DEC 15, 2007
25 cl bottle. It’s a brownish-black beer with a light brown head, that is exceptionally creamy and delicious. The aroma is sourish as expected, but the flavour is not nearly as sour as I hoped, it has slight sourness , quite some sweetness and notes of fruit and caramel.
