sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 13, 2005
(Bottled) Slightly hazy, dark reddish amber color with a small head. Sweet and tart aroma with toffee and wood, even hints of port. Sweet, fruity flavor with caramel, some dried fruit, cherries and the typical Verhaeghe tartness. Medium-bodied, sweet-sour palate with quite low carbonation. Quite sweet, but still enjoyable, tart dessert brew.

henrik (41) - Århus, DENMARK - AUG 9, 2005
Amber with a nice thick but rather quickly disappearing head. Slightly sour malty very special aroma. Good filling mouthfeel and a long refreshing aftertaste. Very drinkable indeed.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2005
(Bottle 25 cl) Dark brown, filtered and clear with a creamy head. Sweet at first, but then some dry metallic notes take over with a tart finish. Lovely. 040899

OlivierMTL (711) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 16, 2005
Bouteille à consommer de préférence avant Juin 2006. Couleur rouge aux reflets bruns, apparence semi opaque. Abondante mousse beige adhérant bien à la paroi du verre. Arômes de vinaigre balsamique, de vieux cuir, de fruits rouges et de bois humide. En bouche, les cerises sont davantage évidentes, impression légèrement sucrée donnant ensuite vedette au côté tartrique s’amplifiant graduellement en finale. Vinaigré, aigre, fluoro aux cerises, un brin de méta de détectable en finale. Corps d’épaisseur moyenne, douce carbonatation. Bouteille Bieropholie, Mars 2004.

Hansen (6196) - Assentoft, DENMARK - JUN 26, 2005
Sort of funny beer, sour, notes of lactic acid. Colour is dark brown, head medium. Perhaps there is a bit wood in the flavor.

DewBrewer (295) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 20, 2005
25cL bottle. Reddish, dark amber color with small head. The aroma is like balsamic vinegar with a burnt note with some sweetness and dark bread character. The flavor is not as intense as Vichtenaar, though this contains some of the blend, no doubt. It is a bit sweeter than Vichtenaar and less sour. It has raspberry, caramel, and acetic notes. Good beer!

TBone (11884) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 21, 2005
Bottled (BB 03/2006)
Dark ruby red, vanishing brown head. Strong butterscotch (diacetyl) nose, slightly sour. Slightly sour, carbonated mouthfeel. Also flavor has some diacetyl and candi sugar and vinegar. I wonder if this patch was ok or not.

Emil (6067) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 6, 2005
Red brown colour with a off-white head. Light sour light fruity aroma and taste. Medium body and a sweet finish.

lachesis (756) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - MAR 3, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 24, 2005 Red-brown color with small light beige head. Touch of candy sugar in the nose and hints of dry fruits and fresh red fruits. Fine spicyness and faint touch of hops. Taste is round light sweet and has a sourish accents of pickeled raspberry, cakes and chutny.

Bov (9050) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - FEB 3, 2005
dark ruby-brown colour, the foam disappears immediately, vinous nose, aroma of vinegar, apple and wood, tart, sour and sweet with a medium body, the finish is slightly dry and fruity with more notes of vinegar - good but too much on the sweet side to be exceptional
