Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 30, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2005 (Bottle 33 cl) Almost fully golden, aparently filtered with a small compact head. Smells sour, tastes sour and due to the light color, I was easily led to believe that this is a gueuze. But it is in fact a "Flemmish red ale" along the lines of Rodenbach, which is brewed on pale malts - very unusual. Apparently brewed solely for the American market, but I don’t really remember where I got it. 141004

Bottled. Clear yellow coloured with a white head. Acidic aroma of wood with notes of barnyard. Acidic flavour of woods with fruity notes. Looks and tastes like a gueuze.

oh6gdx (20299) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 9, 2006
Bottled. Golden colour, huge bubbly/fluffy head with some lacing. Caramellish malts in aroma along with some hints of honey and oak. Flavour is alcohol, malts, some oaky hints, especially in the aftertaste. Some spicy notes also. Quite strangely mixed beer.

omhper (19324) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 28, 2004
Bottled. Deep golden, clear, near no head. Acidic and dry. Fresh, tart and firm a lot of lactic acid. Well balanced and simply wonderful!

Hazy amber beer. Crisp dry palate. Sour and sharp, almost ciderish. The beer has a subtle appleish taste. About as sour as I would want a beer. A bit dry.

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 2, 2006
Beautiful golden color; big bubbles are forming on the glass surface; nice lace. Aroma of barnyard; woody. Very dry mouthfeel, initially, getting quite astringent at the end; malt flavor and old hops, a good sourness and light fruitness (grapefruit); thin, but with some complexity derived from the wood. The final is somehow empty (and this turns me down), with a reminescence of old hops. Very similar to a gueuze. Better when colder.
