37.5 cL bottle, courtesy of KimJohansen. Pours hazy orange with a fizzy off-white head. Solid citric to acidic aroma. Barnyard and horseblanket too. Citric, orange fruity, apple and solid fruity flavoured. Lingering and smooth and fruity flavoured, citric and orange fruity with a nice wooden note following. Dry and wooden dryness into a lasting fruity and dry fruity finish. Lasting fruity impression, quite fresh. Biting acidic finish, quite tart.

Ungstrup (29019) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 23, 2006
An unclear orange beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma is sweet yet at the same time acidic with primary notes of wood. The flavor is acidic with notes of wood and grapefruit. Leading to a dry acidic end, where the notes of wood still lingers around.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 23, 2006
(Bottle 37,5 cl) Courtesy of Sliffy. Very unclear amber golden with a small, off-white head. Distincly sour and somewhat rotten (in a positive sense!) aroma. Medium body with a distinct Brett-like sourness with noble rot. Not really any bitterness but acidic all the way through. Much closer to a Gueuze than to a Flemish Sour. Interesting indeed. 191206

omhper (19189) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 7, 2007
Bottled, thanks cquiroga! Cloudy deep golden, brief head. Citric nose. Very dry with lively spritzy mouthfeel. Citric acidity mixes with wood and strawberry. Fairly light bodied with near Cantillon-like acidity. Fresh and flavourful. Really good, but yet not my favourite from this excellent brewer.

Hazy gold beer. Dry crisp palate. Very sour beer, just the right side of total lemon juice. - ie just about drinkable. A small amount of woodiness provides some relief. Not for me thanks.

harrisoni (13144) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 18, 2006
LCRBM2. Thanks to Phil_l for bringing this back from the States. Gorgeous sourness on the aroma. Very sour, but rounded in mouth, some toffee, then great balanced lemon sourness on finish. Good beer. Would like a whole bottle to myself for a better description.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 24, 2006
Cloudy dull amber. Big oaky, leather aroma with hints of grape, peach candy, old cheese. Really tart. Very leathery, oaky, a bit grapey flavour. Lively body. So dry and flavourful, very gueuze-like, but the carbo is a shade too high to bring out the best in this beer. PH1.

bu11zeye (11929) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JUL 7, 2007
(Bottle, PH1, courtesy of Walt) Pours a hazy golden orange body with a small off-white head. Aroma of citrus, oak, and sour funkiness. Flavor is of sour organic lemony funkiness and with a subtle dry, oak finish. Thanks for sharing Walt!

(375ml bottle, Batch 001, thanks kmweaver) Minimal off-white head with cloudy apple juice body. Aroma is medium sweet, orange, Bret/funk, chalky, light creamy. Taste is mild sweet, lemon, some funk, light orange. Acidic light-medium body.

Bottle @ Chris_o.
Pours hazy pale yellow with slmost no head. Aroma has typical gueuze character, light citric, hay, good funk, vanilla, apples and wood. Low carbonation, quite oily. Nicely tart flavour, good woodiness, lovely balance. Wonderful.
