ZBF2008: From tap. Pours hazy and dark brown with a lacing tan head. Dry and light roasted malt. Flavour holds that rather fruity towards cherry flavoured Rodenbach yeast with a distinct ether note. Light roasted malt flavour too. Slight sharp spiced flavour towards the finish. Goes slight dry.

Ungstrup (29822) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2003
The aroma is slightly sour and sweet with notes of plums and the wild fermentation - really good. The color is deep red and slightly unclear. The head is beige and long lasting. The flavor is lovely: sour and sweet with notes of black currant and plums, and it ends on a nice acidicness. A little thin for a Belgium beer - probably the 5% ABV.

fiulijn (15217) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 4, 2003
Red-amber color, quite dark; generous thick head. Powerful nose, sour, wood, plastic (my old Christmas tree…). Good balance between the light sweetness and the light sourness, plus some oak; maybe not enough mature, and too light. Ordinary palate, fresh and fruity.
