Ungstrup (29665) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2003
A deep red beer with no head. The aroma is slightly sweet and sharp. The flavor is very round, very sweet, and slighlty acidic with notes of berries. A fine flavor but not anything special. OK beer - but my exspectation was higher.

madsberg (10435) - Søborg, DENMARK - MAY 11, 2003
Bottled at the Danish Beerfestival 2003: Clear reddish coloured. Has a medium white head. Aroma is fruity and has malt accents. Is fruity and sour flavoured. The sweetness and sourness mingles pleasantly on the palate. Unfortanately it disappears quickly and don't last long.

Voivod (304) - Como, ITALY - MAY 11, 2003
[on tap] Ruby red colour, good creamy head. Fruity aroma (cherry and raisins). The flavour is quite sour, vinous, fruity (Cherry and raspberry). Bittersweet finish. As the beer warms the flavour becomes too sweet and loses some of its sourness. Pleasant, but probably not enough complex.

omhper (19805) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 3, 2003
Sampled draught at Akkurat, Stockholm, Sweden.
Dark reddish brown. Big cherry aroma. Sweet, yet acidic and very vinuous. Medium bodied, with a slight note of oak. the finish is an orgie in berry flavour; raspberries, cherries, blueberries, you name it...

fiulijn (15060) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 12, 2003
[Keg] Ruby amber color; thin persistent cap.
Wonderful fruity aroma (ripe apricots, raisins, plums...); winy.
Pretty sweet, fruity, with a light oak cask character. Just the required hop.
Good palate, instead that bitter it"s sweet and lightly tart, astringent.
It would be perfect with some sharper sourness.

Like sucking a beer soaked oak barrel. A damn poor Flanders.
