NosirIwont (2008) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - MAR 12, 2011
Bottle. Pours a hazy/murky golden with an off-white head. Aroma is tart with sweet fruit notes. The two notes feels like they sort of clash together, but it works well somehow. Brett as well. Flavour is sweetish and slightly tart (a la berries). Brett. Bitter finish. A bit too much carbonation. Overall well-balanced and nice. 10.03.11.

yngwie (14170) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 11, 2011
Bottle, 375ml, at Patricks. It pours an unclear amber body and a finger-thick, dense off-white head. The aroma is very funky, with yeast and oak. Barnyard notes and a leathery hint. Vinous fruityness too. In the mouth it’s smooth, full-bodied, fizzy and slightly warming. The flavor is tart, lemon-peel like and vinous with some yeast. Long finish with a strong but pleasant alcohol burn. An unusual beer, but fine indeed. 110311

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 11, 2011
Bottle 37,5 cl. Courtesy of Sahlholdt. Pours a deep warm amber with a slight haze and a neat white and lacing head with good retention. Initial aroma is sweet and fruity - almost tropical - with a funky twist. Solid body, again lots of fruit, Bretty freshness, somewhat leathery. The white wine barrel leaves a slight tartness and a rather sophisticated edge. Pale ales on white wine barrels - is that the new black? It certainly is delicious! 210211

UPDATED: JUN 22, 2014 Pours clear amber with an off white head. Aroma of wild yeast, sour fruits, lime peel, bitter hops and stable. Taste add a light malt sweetness along with more sour yeas, some hops and a really dry mouthfeel.
