Attractive and promising Dark mollasses colour. mollasses aroma with a sweetness other than mollasses, candy? Then sourness and tongue numbing that lasts 6 hours later. An experience that is not necessarily satisfying. Not complex, but drinkable brew.

UPDATED: SEP 7, 2005 Bottle (330ml). At Smokeless Joe. Poured a hazy reddish brown with a decent off-white head. Aroma of ripe fruit, brown sugar, sour cider, yeast, dark berries, spices - quite a lot going on. Flavour was a bit surprising - was hoping for a sour ale and got a very sweet, malty and spicy belgian brune, but it did finish a little tart at least; lively mouthfeel. Not bad, but not sure it can decide what it’s supposed to be.

At first appears brown, then with a lovely red hue when held near light. Fluffy head. Aroma is mildly fruity, with some tart berry notes. Flavour is suprisingly subued, quite subtle berries, with mild malt flavours showing through. Quite refreshing, even though it is sweet. Nice.

MiP (14562) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 11, 2005
Bottle. Fruity, acidic aroma, a little teaish. Clear, dark brown colour. Nice, creamy lunarscape head. Flavour is nice and malty with a little biscuit and a slight hint of acidity. No where near as acidic as other oud bruins. Nice body. Aftertaste a little like hvidtøl, only a lot less sweet.

Papsoe (25069) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 24, 2005
(Bottle 25 cl) I was expecting a reddish brown beer with a sharp acidic touch. But what found was rather full-bodied, sweetish and malty - almost like Danish "hvidtøl". And although I do detect some slightly tart notes, they’re far from aggressive. A very mellow, pleasant sour ale. 080195

A classic sour--a bit of a harsh example, but certainly memorable, and a worthwhile stop in a night of being a Belgian beer tourist.

sayravai (4700) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 13, 2005
(Bottled) Very nice, deep dark red color with a smallish, lacy, beige head. Complex, oaky and slightly wineous aroma with toffee, syrup, raisins and bloody, roasted malt. Quite sweet and sugary flavor with only a hint of wineous sourness in the background and finish. Medium-bodied, fizzy-carbonated, sweet-sour palate. A pleasant, but an inch too sugary brew with a very nice aroma and color.
