Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2010
Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of Pinball. Pours yellow with a slight haze and a white head. Odd spicy aroma. Medium body, a little tart, notes of red wine with a discreet sweetness. No real bitterness or tartness in the finish. Quite interesting. 280710

Ungstrup (29134) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2010

Stew41 (1725) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - JUN 13, 2010
Very similar, at least to my tastes, to the Blanche. Lots of citrus fruit here although no particularly intense. Hard to get much from the rhubarb. Not as interesting as it should be.

dec23 (52) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 15, 2009
A solid base of decent light blond beer with the fruity sourness of rhubarb flavour blending in subtly. It is not something like such abberations as the Lime by the otherwise respectable Jever brewery. However, it is also not brewed like a Kriek or other Belgian fruitbeers which have fruit added during the brewing process. If I understood the French brewmaster correctly, they use blended rhubarb juice because the organic rhubarb they use does not have the same taste from one season to the other. As I said, it still is quite a bit better than just a beer with added fruitjuice. Tastewise it is a nice alternative to Belgian Witbier, and goes well with dishes you would otherwise drink white wine to.

eManu (444) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 7, 2009
Pours a very hazy light brown color with a white foam that almost instantly desapeared. Aroma of sweet rhubarb and honey. Flavors of a very sour fruit, a little sweet and low carbonation. Not much to my liking.

Bov (9270) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 30, 2009
courtesy of Laurent Mousson - clear blond colour, little white foam; notes of cabbage and sulphur meet the rhubarb; quite acidic and thin-bodied with a short sour finish of rhubarb - not for me

omhper (19218) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 7, 2005
UPDATED: APR 28, 2005 Bottled. Hazy golden, near no head. Aroma of rhubarb jam. Medium sweet with clean mouthfeel and light body. The rhubarb character is pretty strong, certainly much stronger than in l’Audomaroise’s rhubarb beer. Citric and quite refreshing.
