MiP (13573) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 14, 2005
UPDATED: APR 19, 2006 Bottle. Acidic, farty, earthy aroma. Unclear golden colour, very small white head. Acidic, vinegary flavour with a hint of bitterness. Aftertaste is tanninlike, but not that bitter with a soft, lingering acidity. Soft carbonation.

harrisoni (13564) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2006
37.5cl bottle. I had no idea that I hadn’t rated this. Hazy gold colour with thin white. Very sour lemon aroma. Unsurprisingly sour in the mouth. But amazingly refreshing on a very hot day. Some farmyard aroma. Fairly good complexity in the mouth . Quite good once you have got used to it.

yngwie (13345) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 13, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2011 Bottled. Yellow-white hazy beer with a small white head. Aroma is green apples, old cellar and fruity acids. Dry, sour, astringent and delicious. Shared it with some lager-friends, and even they sort of liked it. Rating: 8-4-8-3-15-3.8. 051028

Bottle, 75cl. Bottled 20090213. It pours and unclear yellow-golden body with lots of carbonation. Rather small head, firm and lasting, even some lacings. Citrusy, light barnyard aroma with green apples and some mouldy old cellar. It’s puckering in the mouth, well carbonated and medium bodied. Lots of acidity, lemon and unripe apples, some funky cellarish barnyard flavors, but not very much. Quite medicinal too, at least much more than in the last two bottles I’ve had. Lasting finish with acidity and citrus peel. A quite fantastic beer, and what’s even more fantastic is that it’s available all over Norway. Who would have though that three years ago. 110109

TBone (12538) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 23, 2005
Bottled 75cl, 2004 vintage (BBE 2030)
Hazy bright orange color, small orangey head, mostly vanishing. Strong sour aroma of apples, also earth, leather and cork. Soft, rounded mouthfeel. Starts fruity (apples again) sweetish then fills the mouth with sourness (lime). Earthy notes in the finish. Long acidy aftertaste. Well-balanced gueuze.

(Bottle) Pours a cloudy orange-yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of sour Granny Smith apples and rhubarb. Tart flavor of grapefruit juice. Acidic palate.
