yespr (40836) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUL 29, 2008
33 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden hazzlenut brown with a lacing tan head. Spiced and mild medical aroma. Sweet and acidic flavour with a dry breadish malt note. Ends with a light acidic touch and mild spiced.

Ungstrup (34666) - 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.

joergen (26202) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 9, 2005

oh6gdx (25472) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 1, 2008
Bottled. Very dark ruby red colour, mediumsized beige head. Aroma is sour fruits and also sourish notes from freshly cut wood rowan berries. Flavour is sour fruits along with some mild sweetness to balance it up. The aftertaste is quite sweetish sourness in a very pleasant way. Though 3.5%, it does feel like a lot more in my opinion.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 18, 2006
(Bottle 33 cl) Clear, amber golden with an off-white head leaving some laces. Aroma of iron and brown sugar. Light body with immediate notes of iron and a light tartness quickly relieved by the dark sugars. An interesting light Flemish Sour and probably would be a pleasant session beer. Somewhat underrated. 171206

omhper (23724) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 28, 2004
Bottled. Reddish brown. Sweet with notes of raspberries and loads of saccharine. There’s some acidity, but the sweetness very much takes the upper hand, leaving an unbalanced impression.

anders37 (23363) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 19, 2006
Bottle. Red brown colour with a tan head. Fruity and a little sour aroma. Sweet flavor with some hints of fruits and sourness. Sweet and woody finish.

fiulijn (19347) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 8, 2005
Dark amber color. Spicy aroma (cloves), some malt. In the flavor there is a little portion of the Verhaeghe character and light sweetness, but it’s too weak. In the final there is a light wood/cask touch.

yngwie (16523) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 16, 2006
Bottled. Reddish-brown, well-carbonating beer with a large, firm, creamy beige head. Acidic and tart cherries on the nose, but weak. Mild sourness in the flavor, along with cherries, raspberry, some lemon-like notes and caramel. Very sweet, but watery mouthfeel. Sweet and metallic finish. (060616)

Oakes (15806) - 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.
