Bottle 75cl. @ WSF.

[ Courtesy of Dedollewaitor ]. Unclear medium grey amber orange color with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white to white head. Aroma is moderate to heavy grape - berry, light to moderate hoppy, perfume, moderate yeasty, soap. Flavor is moderate to light light heavy sweet and light to moderate tart bitter with a average to long duration, and a dry finish. Both aroma and flavor is a bit artificial IMO, but maybe it had a hard job, we got it together with HORAL, Cantillon Zwanze and other outstanding beers @ WSF. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20090530]

23rd September 2010. Bottle shared with Mes&Sim.
Cloudy amber beer. No real head. Light funky nose. Crisp dry palate. Lightly sour and tart, turns soft in the mouth. Light worcester sauce sourness with a follow through of something sweeter - I guess the grape but I found it elusive. Does have winey aftertaste though! Nice drinkable sour, if only all sours were as drinkable!

Tasting at Papsø
Cloudy deep blond color; medium sized head. Herbal aroma, heather and rosemary, mild; light sourness. Sour fruity flavor, lemon, unripe plums, sour white wine. Correct bitterness, the final is quite citrusy, but somehow balanced. Well drinkable. Quite good.
