Bottle. Red brown colour with a medium off-white head. Fruity, grassy aroma and a sweet sour, very metallic taste. Medium body and a metallic finish.

MPA (779) - Amager (form. Nørrebro&Aalborg), DENMARK - NOV 18, 2005
Bottle. I really enjoy low achol beer that has something to offer tastewise and I really enjoy flemish sour ales. With the prospect of tasting a beer, that would fit under both of the above, it was somewhat of a disappointing experience. I prefer more tartness in my sour ales, and I prefer metal to be on the outside as wrapping and not as flavouring. The distinctive sweetness is, however, quite pleasant and makes it worth drinking again, but I´m not in a hurry.

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - JAN 30, 2005
A low alcohol beer from Verhaeghe, how interesting! Pours dark redbrown with a fine tan head. Sourish aroma with a vinous tone. Fruity and cheesy notes. Flavor is sweet with a sour edge. Fruity and sugary with vinegar notes. I believe it is made from the same base as the other Verhaeghe beers. Very nice specially for a 3,5% beer! Thanks Jacob for this hard to find brew.

rickgordon (3841) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 5, 2004
Bottled. Redbrown colur. Sour-ish aroma(raspberries), but malty. Sugary sour-ish flavour. Like a sweetened lambic?

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 9, 2004
A hazy deep red beer with a fine beige head. The aroma is primarily sour, but also malty. The flavor is both sweet and sour with notes of berries. This is in the mild end of the style, but very nice.

Oakes (11798) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 11, 2004
Reddish-brown colour. Sweet, slightly sour character with a hint of caramel and sugar. Finish, though, is tart, with a hint of fruitiness.

madsberg (9650) - Søborg, DENMARK - AUG 2, 2004
Bottled: Red/brown coloured. Unclear. Brownish head. Fruity and malty aroma. Not very much sournotes. Flavour is malty and sweet and has a light acidic note. Quite pleasant, without beeing worldclass.
