COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
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 (30913) - 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 don’t 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 (29224) - 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.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 3, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2006 (Bottle 25 cl) Recalling the old Rodenbach commercial "It’s 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

Bottled. Red brown coloured with a lacing beige head. Acidic aroma with notes of woods and berries. Acidic flavour dominated by wood with notes of balsamico and berries. Acidic woody finish.

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.

UPDATED: NOV 12, 2012
2012-11-12, draught at La Fine Mousse, Paris, 7-4-7-3-15=36
Dark color with red shades; creamy head but not persistent. Sour aroma, a bit acetic, fruit, rotten fruits too (not exactly fresh, almost fruit flies prone). Highly carbonated, smooth mouthfeel; good caramel flavor with red fruit tones, medium acidity and just a shade of acetone. In the final, there is a light impression of acetone.
Could be more complex, probably still young, but already pleasant.

2012-03-25, draught at Fairbar, Århus, 7-4-7-3-14=35
Hazy red dark amber color, with thin head. The aroma has mild sourness, and a fruity character. The body has an average strength, the mouthfeel is smooth (high carbonation); good flavor of caramel, with sharp acidity, vinegar traces, and fruity backbone. Very good.

2010-10-29, draught at Plan B, 6-4-6-3-13=32
Dark brown color, small head. The aroma is very vinegary. The body is quite lean; there is some caramel aroma, limited residual sweetness, and an evident acetic character; a bit fruity. Sour, but not the most pleasant one.

2003-06-24, bottle, 7-5-8-4-15=39
Beautiful red-amber color. Acetic, sweet and astringent. Pleasant but not impressive, nor particularly fruity.
