yespr (31178) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 20, 2007
25 cL bottle. Pours deep brown/amber with a dense light brown head. Mellow caramel malty and slight fruity. Flavour is slight sour and sweet malty. Seems a bit out of balance. Ends mixed sweet and sour, but only mildly sour. Nice though.

Ungstrup (29287) - 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.

Papsoe (25085) - 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

joergen (20742) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 6, 2006
Bottle. Red brown coloured with a small beige head. Sweet aroma of malts, caramel and red wine. Flavour of red wine and caramel. No hints of the oak-maturing. Unbalanced, not the best flemish sour ale.

oh6gdx (20322) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 9, 2006
Bottled. Rubyish copper colour, mediumsized off-white head. Aroma is raisins, plum, burnt sugar and caramel malts. Flavour is burnt sugar, slightly metal and hops. Slightly watery, otherwise good brew. It was more supersweet than sour in my opinion.... only in the finish it had some weak sourness to it.

omhper (19374) - 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 (14549) - 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.

Dedollewaitor (13913) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 11, 2007
Dark ruby red with creamy white slight browny head. Malty little cherry/vinegar taste & aroma. Thin body. Earhty dry taste. Good lacings. Very mild - biere rouge for starters! Lacks complexity - but drinkable!
