madsberg (10140) - Søborg, DENMARK - JUN 14, 2004
Bottled: Golden coloured. Clear. Fluffy white head. Vinegar and some fruitsweetness in the aroma. A little to much vinegar for my likings, but not unpleasant. Flavour is surprisingly sweet. Very fruity and light yeasty. Quite refreshing, and has a citrusy and light sour aftertaste. Last medium on the palate.

Golden with a weak head. The aroma is sourish just like the flavour that has notes of fruit and wood. It’s a nice flemish sour.

imdownthepub (10022) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2012
Bottled, 330ml from Burg Bieren, Ermelo, Netherlands.Gold with white head. Initial sour nose, fruity, tart, this translates into the beer, but in a particularly pleasing way, sharp, floral with a hint of spicy yeast. Good depth, lemony, an assault on the taste-buds but never a trial. Good stuff.

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - FEB 27, 2006
It is sour, it is Flemish and it is no lambic. I’ve been looking forward to taste this beer, and I wasn’t disappointed. 6th DRG. Golden color, slightly hazy. Citric, woody aroma. Very citric flavor, medium to full bodied, with some cream in the aftertaste. Raspberry. Some hopcharacter. Really great.
