Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 26, 2005
(Bottle 25 cl) Reddish brown with a small, beige head. Lightly vinegary almost rotten aromas. Typical and very pronounced metallic flavours. But unlike most sour ales this has more sweet than sour. And even some bitter hops in the finish. Not bad, but not very typical for it’s style. 050398

Bottled (my Belgian rating #700). Deep reddish brown colour with brown foamy head. Aroma is fruits, earth and some acidic notes. Flavour is really sour malts, fruity hops and licorace. Quite pleasant and wellbalanced brew. Could be a bit more sour.

MiP (13535) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2006
Bottle. Weak, malty, fruity aroma. Clear brown colour. Quite stable, light brown head. The flavour is quite malty and sugary. Not very sour, but has a bit of a rough bitterness. Too sugary, but better than most oud bruins.
