Madsnp (933) - DENMARK - MAR 18, 2008
Bottle. Pours a beautiful deep redbrown ale with a thin lightbrown head. Aroma is fruity with notes of berries and grapefruit, but with darkfruit such as raisins as well(?). Very thin mouthfeeling. Flavours like cherry and wood are to find in this sour, but it isn’t that sour i think.

FatPhil (9463) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 13, 2008
Draught (Wildeman, Amsterdam)
Dark red - large tight head. Sweet and sour aroma, hint of diacetyl. Taste is a lovely combination of flavours. First a soft slightly sharp mouth taste, then creamy maltiness, heading towards sour bread pudding. A slightly fruity soft malty finish. Excellent only-mildly-sour sour brown.

omhper (19791) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 13, 2008
Bottled. Copper colour, small head. Light vinegary nose. Rather light bodied. Dry, despite some fruity malt sweetness, notes of oak, butter, tart lingonberry and cherry. Lightly citric and vinegary. Pretty good, but not as complex as the best Flemish browns IMO.
