Draft @ BBF. Murky brown reddish pour. Aroma has wine, some sourness, malt, spices and port. Flavour: wow this really is sour and sweet, citrus/brett and malt/caramel. Hint of spices. Nice, refreshing and really complementing each other.

Travlr (13167) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 3, 2010
Draught at Borefts Beer Festival 2010, courtesy of Mikkel and the boys - thanks! Sour nose with flowers and grapefruit. Flavor profile very much resembles the old Rodenbach from years ago. Decent.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 2, 2010
Handbottle 50 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours a cloudy and opaque brown with a small and rough off-white head. Sweet berry-like accents. Medium body, sweet cherry notes and quite some acetone. Ends strangely astringent. A very unusual beer - quite reminding me of a lighter version of the recent blend "Sour Amar". 280910

skortila (4619) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - SEP 28, 2010
On tap @ 2nd BBF. The aroma has cherries mainly, some yeast dust. Hazy, red-brown coloured beer with not much head. The taste is slightly sour but more sweet and has cherries, some citrus, some malt, little marzipan. Very full for ABV and style. Very good.
