yespr (40452) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUL 7, 2007
25 cL bottle. Pours amber to light brown with no lasting head, a very small crispy head was there when poured. Clear lambic aroma with a distinct cane sugar element layed on top. Very sweet flavour with a slight sour twist towards the end. Nice style of beer a good supplement to the acidic/sour lambics. Note to self: I need to have some of these in stock for guests that don’t get the beauty in the dry and sour lambics :)

Ungstrup (34350) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 3, 2004
The aroma is sweet and sour with notes of wood and (too old?) candy sugar - maybe the fact that it was 4 years past last expiry date caused the "old" aroma. The color is dark amber and poures with a fine head. The flavor is lovely sweet combined with sourness and notes of caramel and hints of the wild fermentation.

Bottled. Amber colour with small beige head. Aroma is sweet,caramellish and at the same time a bit bitterish. Flavour is sweet caramellish (sugary) as well as some "lambiccy" sourness. Pleasant palate and aftertaste is mainly sweet only.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 11, 2005
(Bottle 25 cl) Amber coloured with a rather flat head. Lovely nut-like aroma, initial sophisticated tartness soon relieved by the wonderful sweetness from the candi sugars. Very refreshing swet and sour blend. Faros are a favourite. 270499

Early amateur rating warning! Fantastic fruity beer, generic fruit flavours, sweet but sourish as well. Yum!

Travlr (21438) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JAN 4, 2010
Golden yellow colo with very small head that disappears quickly; no lacing to speak of. Aroma of apples, grapes and candy. Flavor is dominated by the cloying sweetness that never lets up - nothing to balance it. Medium body. This one is too sweet, lacks the lambic characteristic sourness to balance it.
