33 cL bottle. Pours hazy dark brown with a lacing off-white head. Woody, malty and light brett-ish dry aroma. Flavour is caramel malt, yeasty spiced and with a mild brett acidic/citric note. Dry almost woody into the finish. Lingering yeasty fruity finish, light spiced as well.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 9, 2004
An amber beer with chunks floating around and a small off white head. The aroma is very fruity with notes of prunes, raisins, and alcohol. The flavor is very sweet with notes of fruit especially prunes and quite. Sparkling on the tongue and with a dry end.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 17, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2005 (Bottle 75 cl) Vapeur really produces some rather unique and excentric brews and this is no exception. Reddish orange colour pretty much without any head and a rather flat appearance. Some fruit in the nose but already here you sense the sourness. In the flavour I find some initial sweetness which is rapidly replaced by an immense sourness. Not the gueuze-sourness - this has its very own character. Huge sediment at the bottom, making this finish a lot softer when poured. 250699

As "Cochonnette" - basically similar to "Cochonne" but offered in 25 cl bottles which the brewery claims matures differently - that is, with less character. 270999

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 6, 2003
Cochonnette. Beautiful red-amber color. Aroma of malt; warm alcohol. Good body strength, but average malt presence and a touch of alcohol; warming. Strong ale, lacking of character.

Vintage as Cochonette:BB 07, bottle at Plan-B, Copenhagen: Pours cloudy amber with a red hew & off white head. Aroma is very speciel - so fresh of fruity lemin/citrus/orange & a touch of pepper. Low & soft carbonation. Round & mild - yet warmth from alcohol. Very delicious & drinkable!

madmitch76 (13351) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2010
2nd January 2009. Cloudy brown beer, quickly receding cream head. Nicely sour with a dry coca cola character. Light and frothy. Very dry finish which normally gives me the hump but its okay in this beer.
