COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a beer that will make you rethink your definition of beer. It doesnít taste like any beer youíve ever had, yet it doesnít taste like anything else either. Pushing the limits of brewing is what makes this job so much fun. Malted barley, wild yeast, hand picked Muscat Grapes, and French oak wine barrels are just a few of the things that went into crafting this beer. Breathe deep, take a long sip, and enjoy the creation in your hand.

Bottle 75cl.
[ As my Ratebeer rating #8000 ]. Clear sparkling medium to dark yellow color with a average, frothy - fizzy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, white to off-white head. Aroma is acidic fruity - flowers - spicy, elderflower, grape (muskat grape), white wine, oak, citrus, very complex and nice aroma. Flavor is heavy sweet, acidc and sour - tart with a long duration, and a sour dry dry finish. Body is medium, texture is watery to oily, carbonation is soft to lively. This one is very nice ;O)) [20090116]

75 cL bottle. As I missed this at the 2007 RBSG I was extremely glad to see Papsoe put this on for the tasting amongst the Copenhagen crew. As huge as my expectations were as huge was my disappointment with this. I really hadnít missed anything on this from the RBSG, but it requires that someone puts the bottle on the table for you to take the hype out of this one - thanks for that Papsoe, and once again thanks for the huge efforts you make to get stuff like this to the country.

Pours hazy yellow with no head. Slight apple and acidic/citric aroma. Light to medium bodied. Flavour is sour with a minor sweetness lurking through. Not really wellbalanced. Too one dimensional citric, lacks some complexity. Compared to the flemish sours Iíve rated on this site and those tasted but not rated: this brew really isnít amongst the best imo, I had expected quite a lot more from this.

Ungstrup (29222) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 2, 2007
Bottled. An unclear light golden beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet malty with light sour notes. The flavor is sweet yet acidic with light notes of brettanomyce. I find it very simple - but OK.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2007
(Bottle 75 cl) Courtesy of boboski. Pours a hazy, pale golden - loos mostly like a Belgian Wit - with a small, white head. Tart, fruity and fairly spicy nose. Medium-bodied with tart Brett accents and some exotic fruit accents - some banana also. Dry lightly astringent acidity in the finish. Interesting and delicately refined but by no means a Flemish Sour - this is a pale Belgian Ale with some Brett, just like what Russian River has been doing for years. 280907

joergen (20656) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 30, 2007
Bottle. Hazy yellow coloured with a white head. Sweet aroma of wood and vanilla with acidic notes of wine. Acidic flavour dominated by peaches with fruity notes and notes of wood. Rather unbalanced, Iíve had better flemish sourís than yhis one.

oh6gdx (20299) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 26, 2008
Bottled (thanks omhper!). Hazy yellow colour, small white head. Aroma is fruits, hops, yeast and some caramel & earth in a wellbalanced mix. Flavour is sour fruits, some wood and acidic notes. Some tropical fruits lurking in the background balancing it up to a refreshing brew.

omhper (19318) - TyresŲ, SWEDEN - FEB 25, 2008
Bottled, thanks kmweaver! Pours lively hazy pale yellow with brief fizzy head. The nose is tart and vinous. Itís dry, and citric with barnyard, grape and wood. Fresh and lively, complex and just wonderful. Has the qualities that makes it stand out even in the toughest crowd. A superb beer!

Hazy light gold beer. No head at all. A little sour wood and a distinct muscat nose. Crisp light and semi dry palate. Sour enough to induce an involuntary blink but not a pucker! A little lemon acid offset by sublte oak and nice orangey muscat. Finishes chardonnay winey and dry. Nice winey sour.

Cloudy blond color; small head. Lactic acidity, citrusy aroma, some plastic too; a bit creamy, very close to some Lambic. Good mouthfeel, strong carbonation but pleasant effect, nice fruity touch, the fruit adjunct carries some sugars too; citrusy sourness, but milder and more drinkable than other Sour beers. Balanced, well brewed, elegant. Excellent.
