UPDATED: AUG 15, 2007 [Vintage 1985-1987 bottle] The aroma is fantastic containing raspberries and great sourness. The color is dark amber (rather than red - could be the age) with some sediment floating around and it has a fine off-white head. The flavor is very powerful with notes of wood, lending it some dryness, raspberries, grapefruit and a sourness that draws out the mouthwater. The finish is dry and woody. A great beer that gives a flavor explosion in the mouth. Thanks a lot to Joris for this fantastic experience.

UPDATED: MAY 21, 2012 75 cl bottle dated 25 May 99. Pours cloudy light ruby. Aroma of berries and apple. Taste of wet horse and yeast, with the raspberries shining through nicely. A winner.
Second taste, bottle on 12 May 2012. Sweet raspberries are fighting the earthiness of the geuze. Should do nicely in time. 3.5.

Bottle shared at Sour & Bitter. So here we are - white whale time! I’m not holding my breath though and it’s just as well. Hazy dark red beer with a tiny pale pink head. Light palate, semi dry. Fairly tart and unsweet raspberry come cherry. Acidic, too much so. Very dry finish, too much so. Just about drinkable but over tart and over dry. Can’t say this is a bad beer because way too many people I respect rate it so highly - just another example of me not appreciating or understanding this style at all. Have to mark ’em like I see ’em and I struggled through my meagre portion. 2.7.

Craft Clerkenwell Tasting. A year and a bit later this has mellowed a lot - it’s pure raspberry jam with just a little acid sourness. So much more drinkable if still pretty one dimensional.

Papsoe (25055) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2010
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of KimJohansen. Bottling date March 25th 1999. Pours a cloudy reddish amber with a tiny white head. The nose has extremely intense and fresh raspberry notes. Medium body, fine carbonation, astringent and acetic Brett and lacto with the fruit adding a perfect balance. The fruit notes are surprisingly fresh considering its age. Mouthdryingly dry. I’m not much of a sucker for white whales, but this beer really lives up to its hype. 110910
