Papsoe (25085) - 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

Bottle at ACBF. Hazy gold beer. tiny white head. Light sourish nose. Softish palate. Mild to mid sourness tickles your tastebuds. Trace amounts of minerals and a little white wine, tangy. Really light and tasty beer and a great sour for someone who generally struggles with them! Original rating 3.4.
