A blend of 1/3 young beer and 2/3 of beer aged 2 years in large oak vats. The more important proportion of oak matured beer contributes to its fruity taste, complexity and intensity. The finish is worthy of a great wine.

yespr (40417) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JAN 29, 2008
33 cL bottle. Pours dark amber with a quickly gone head. Aroma is woody, fruity, slight acidic brettish and solid note of acetone (which I dont enjoy) - seems dry. Flavour is sweet/acidic, with a blend of fruit and sour notes. Shows a strange chemical note into the finish. Otherwise a very controlled flemish sour, nice.

Ungstrup (34308) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 26, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2003 Second time around - I liked this a lot better. ------- deep red beer with light brown head that disappears fast. The aroma is very fruity with notes of cherry, kriek, tree and acid. The flavor is acidic sweet because of the mixed fermentation. It has a very powerful start, then a bit watery in the middle and ends with a sharp typical gueze aftertaste.

UPDATED: APR 18, 2008 Bottled. Hazy reddish brown colour, mediumsized white foamy head. Sour cherry aroma with hints of caramel malt and yeast. Also some quite wooden notes. Bitter, mouthdrying very sharp cherry flavour, along with very sour wooden notes. Also slight yeast and earth in it. Leaves a sticky palate.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 3, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2006 (Bottle 25 cl) Recalling the old Rodenbach commercial "Its wine" this BEER actually reminds me a lot of red wine in both nose and flavour. Filtered, dark reddish beer. Strong acidic vinegar-like notes without much bitterness. Even for Belgians this is a unique beer - but one you grow to appreciate. At least I did. Try this with a paperbag of shrimps at the beach in De Panne. Yummy. 160593 & 240695
