Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 2, 2007
(Bottle 75 cl) Courtesy of Thomas_E. Slightly hazy, pale golden with a small, white head. There’s a vague, tart Brett nose. Medium body - well, perhaps even a little watery, only moderately sour although you do indeed sense the usual Brett and horse blanket characteristics. Quite OK, but not as complex as blended Gueuzes. 280907

madmitch76 (15128) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2010
4th March 2010. Slighty hazy gold beer. Some sourness and wood in the nose. Palate is a bit dry. Sour - of course - a little lemony but tempered by some softness. Enough sourness to make you salivate not a pucker job. Easy drinking lambic.

Cuvée 1996, Bottled 1998, 8 years old
As promised, it's almost flat, looks like wort in the beginning, but gently forms a thin white cap; golden color. The usual wonderful aroma; sour and sweet, light fruitness and flowers; very light nitrates. Very nice the mouthfeel, lacking almost completely of carbonation; the resulting smoothness helps to more easily stand the sourness; strong grapefruit and pink grapefruit, young woods as well. Quite bitter. You should not miss this one!
