Note: this is the same recipe as Barriquée Sour, but it doesn’t get infected with lactobacillus bacteria and aged in sterilized barrels.
Originally it was the only version available outside of North America; then followed by the Barriquée Sour European version (that is not produced anymore); nowadays also the Barriquée Sour is available in Europe.

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - AUG 20, 2005
Sampled at RBESG 2005.
Unclear amber orange with a fine off-white head. Rather odd aroma of malt, berries and herb with no flemish sour characters (I guess why...........!!). Some woodyness in the flavor along with berry hints and lots of herbs. Cheesy tones. No sourness (again I guess why.....) and clearly not a flemish sour ale (......).

Sigmund (4933) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 19, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2006 Rerate bottle, RBESG 2006: Cloudy golden colour. Barnyard and ensilage aroma. Funky flavour, some woody notes, but not very exciting. Original rating: Bottle, RBESG 2005 Grand Tasting. Strong brandy-like aroma, oaky and alcoholic like hell. Extremely oaky flavour, not too sweet. (Rating 3.7).

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 19, 2005
(Bottle 37,5 cl) Hazy amber colour with a small, creamy head. Complex, vinous slightly sourish nose. But in the flavours not much sourness is left. This appears smooth and mellow with roasted malts and a downplayed sweetness. Very delicate indeed. 120805

DanielBrown (3697) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2005
Bottle at RBESG Grand Tasting 05 (wussy European milder version apparently). Fruity, wheat aroma. Fruit, wood, sourness to finish. Not as dramatic as anticipated (perhaps due to crappy European mildness), but balanced very well. I actually enjoyed it.

Belgo (154) - Køge, DENMARK - AUG 16, 2005
Bottle. Light brown with a poor head. The aroma.......well, actually this one smells like shit......with some wood cask aroma there as well. Very sweet and not my taste at all.

Dushata (8) - Sofia, BULGARIA - AUG 15, 2005 does not count
A muddy reddy brown coloured beer which poured with no head. The aroma has some background fruit and some typical Flemish Sour woodiness. The taste was very clean and oaky with good woody cherry fruit notes. Very tasty and a real good take on a Flemish Sour, as usual the musty characters dominate but in a very drinkable fashion. I liked this although the aroma was lacking somewhat.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - AUG 14, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2005 Bottle @ RBESG2005. Light sourish nose, strong notes of ammonia, pigsty, its really too much for me. Hazy reddish body, medium white head. Sweetish flavor, with some underlying sourness, fortunetely the ammonia isnt very present in the flavor.

joergen (20493) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 14, 2005
Bottled at RBESG 2005. Hazy amber coloured with an off white head. Fruity aroma with notes of wood, ammoniac and barnyard. Flavour of barnyard, anise and ammoniac with fruity notes. Interesting, but not my liking.

TBone (12329) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 14, 2005
Bottled @RBESG’05
Nut brown, small off-white head. Strong nose of horse blanket, leather and yeast. Crisp citrusy. Some pine wood notes underlying plus a bit of caramel.
