Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - NOV 11, 2005
25 cl bottle. Yeast in bottom. Dark reddish colour with a weak head. Aroma of malt, earth and some wood. Very malty favour, with notes of oak. Ends up little sour and sweet, a very different beer endeed.

Well this seems to be a new up and coming favourate style of beer for me. Aroma is a balanced sourness, with fruits and a little sweetness. Taste is also very similar with a sweetish, yet dryish finish. I wish they made more of these beer over here, or should i say send some more over anyway.

kramer (5611) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 1, 2005
250ml bottle. Pours a nice mahogany brown with ruby highlights at the edges. Head is pretty minimal but nothing unusual. Aroma is very complex, sour malt, oak, raisons, fruit, vinegar. Flavor is good, not quite as sour as expected, very sweet up front with the sour coming through on the finish. This isn’t a mouth puckerer at all. Taste is rather vinous, with some raisin, prune, and port notes. Lingering aftertaste of spices and a little bitterness. A nice beer in and of itself, but not up with many other Flemish Sours I’ve had. A pretty good intro to the style for those who may be afraid of the every mysterious Flemish Sour...

Sammy (10326) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 23, 2005
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.

HogTownHarry (6372) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 20, 2005
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 (14656) - 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 (25068) - 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
