From bottle, Kerstbierfestival 2007 in Essen/Belgium. Pours dark brown and with a lacing light brown head. Slight banana fruity and spiced aroma. Flavour is slight acidic/citric with a banana note and fruity overall. Mild malt note beneath. Finish is sweet lingering of the same notes. Nice brew although I’m not sure it was clean.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2009
Bottle 33 cl. Cloudy brown with floaties and a beige head. Lovely oxidized aroma, nuts, overripe fruit, brown sugar and alcohol. Medium body, roasted malts, oxidized woody notes, Sherry and an underlying tartness - a lurking infection? Doesn’t spoil the fun though. No real bitterness. Quite delicious really. 100909

Koelschtrinker (17712) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 7, 2011
Kerstbierfestival 2007 Malzig-säuerlich-muffig zu Beginn. Das Bier wird dann kurz süßer, die im Mittelteil aufkommende Bitterkeit übertönt dies sofort. Gleichzeitig zu einer nussigen Karamellmalzigkeit wird das Bier wässriger, wodurch die genannten Töne intensiver erscheinen, da der Rest schwächer wird. Schwierig zu beschreibendes Bier.. Test vom 20.12.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: -,9,9,9,-,9 - 9,00
