Sample at beer day 2011. Werry nice sour ale. The aroma is sour’ish, with notes of malt, vinegar, berries, yeast and dried fruit. The taste is also sour’ish with notes of vinegar, berries, yeast, dried fruits and malt. A fairly complex beer, but still highly drinkable I LOVE it.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a brown-orange color with a large tan head. The aroma is somewhat odd, as I have come to expect from the Kolding sours I have tried. I get some toffee and chocolate notes, as well as some nuttyness and some dark fruit - cherries and cranberries. There is also a strong Pepsi aroma to the beer but I have no idea where that is coming from. The flavor is more of the same. I get some tart cranberry notes as well as some chocolate and dry cocoa powder. The nuttyness from the aroma is also present in the flavor. The tartness is not that strong yet, probably because the beer is this year’s vintage. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

330. Thanks, René! Pours a murky dark brown with a dense and creamy tan mousse. Actually, it geysers all that at first, then it pours it. Good thing my man knows his way around a roll of duct tape. Lot of sugar and a lot of yeast in this one. A highly active ferment. Dry winter berry nose, showing a nice toasty black bread under that but then with a very clean and crisp cranberry note balancing. Really a cool combination and no doubt worth playing with some more batches. Fizzy rich body; even after the geyser there’s nothing but life left in this beer. Caramel, brown sugar, cranberries, maybe a bit of oak in the mid palate. Bright and dry berry finish.

Copper with a big off-white head. Fruity aroma with red berries, and a hint of licorice. The flavour combines fruity sweetness with cranberry tartness, along with a bit of brown sugar and a hint of mint

Bottle with huge thanks to the Wolf. Pours a slightly cloudy drak bronze with huge light tan coloured head. Falls away super quickly leave half an inch of dense foam. Great sour aroma of malt vinegar supported by milj chocolate and dark toffee. Some dark dry fruits showing through also. Flavours are much the same with chocolate, light roasted malt and good vinegary sourness. Nice beer. Thanks Rene.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 1, 2012
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a cloudy opaque brown with a lively beige head that dissipates quickly. Dry and lightly vinous aroma, slightly tart. Medium body with a very lively carbonation, a distinct vinous tartness, some red berries and a little yeast. The finish is dry and tart. Somewhat rustic but fairly interesting. 280712
