hopdog (10266) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 1, 2008
25cl bottle labeled BB 08 08 06 (no wonder why the previous ratings were from Oct ’06). Poured a medium amber color with smaller sized off white head. Aromas of roast, wood, burnt caramel, vinegar, and fruity. I would have guessed a Flemish Sour with this aroma. Tastes of caramel, toffee, fruity, and light vinegar. Finished lighlty tart. Call me crazy, but I was into the tart vinegar side of this one.

Thanks to hopdog. Pours a translucent amber with a small bubbly off white head. Aroma of caramel, vinegar, mixed fruits, nuts and some toffee. Flavor of toffee, metallic, some various fruits...not a whole lot more.

oh6gdx (23682) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 26, 2006
Bottled. Copper colour, mediumzsized bubbly beige head. Aroma is saccarine along with sweet tropical fruits and slight toffeeish hints. Flavour is the same, but the sweeness has turned into a biting sourness and bitterness. So from sweet tropical fruit to dry, sour fruit. Also rich carbonation tickles the tongue. Mouthdrying finish.

Amber color. Nothing specials. Aroma is better than the taste. Little sweet taste. Dry at the end.

Jerre (3019) - Waregem, BELGIUM - SEP 2, 2006
It is like one beer to the palm family. But better. A typical product off Verhaeghe. A little bit sweet. This beer i liked all over 20 years.

Amber brown colour with minimal head. Some bread in the nose and some toastiness. Flavour was some malts but little else before ending slightly sour.

Oakes (13961) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 24, 2006
Light hazy amber colour. Toasty, caramelly aroma. Quite toasty character. Oxidized maybe? Either way, not much to see here.

Hugh (197) - Zillebeke, BELGIUM - JUN 20, 2006
Excessive foaming on opening bottle. An amber red colour. Fruity flavour but essentially uninteresting. A feeling that life was too short to bother with this beer overwhelmed me. zzzzz

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 23, 2006
Amber colored, little white head. Sweetness, berries, sourness, mild caramel and vinous tones in aroma. Medium bodied. Flavor is not as good as aroma: starts with sweet cherry tones, ends with sour and lasting dryness. Reminds me of some lambics.

TBone (14785) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 30, 2006
Bottled (BB 08/2006)
Clear amber color, small white head. Burned butterscotch aroma, a bit malty. Dry, watery and very carbonated. Tart flavor, almost lambic-like. Some roasted notes in the aftertaste. Quite interesting, but not very good brew. There is maybe something which reminds about Duchesse De Bourgogne.
