yespr (45508) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - FEB 19, 2010
33 cL bottle. Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is dry hoppy and mild fruity. Smooth fruity and barrel like. Bitter, dry and distinct grapefruity. Mild citric note. Light fruity impression. Mild acetone to phenolic note. Lasting cherry fruity to wooden impression.

Ungstrup (37677) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 5, 2006
A hazy orange beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet hoppy combined with notes of oranges. The flavor is sweet combined with an acidic touch, and with primary notes of oranges, but also a hint of metal. Hard to tell the style.

Bottled. Hazy orange colour, mediumsized white head, with stuff floating around. Aroma is sour fruits with earthy hints. Flavour is fruits, plum, slight metallicness and enourmous sourness. Pleasant!

omhper (25160) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2006
Bottled, thanks Bov! Cloudy amber, lively head. Tart and lemony with some caramel. Vinous with red berries, prunes and freshening acidity. Russian River-like tartness and complexity. A fantastic beer!

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 16, 2006
(Bottle 75 cl) Vintage 2004. Pours a very unclear, murky amber with a small, off-white head. Sourish, fruity nose. Medium body with some underlying sweetness, but overwhelmingly dominated by a rather complex combination of tartness (citrus - grapefruit) and aroma hops. But it’s not that bitter. A rather sophisticated beer really. Heavily sedimented. The label calls this a "Rousse de garde", to me it mostly reminds me of a Saison. Thanks to Bov for this very nice beer. 160306

Travlr (24913) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - NOV 28, 2008
750 ml bottle, 2006. Cloudy amber with thick tan head. Aroma of nuts and toffee. Taste is malty with a fair amount of bitterness. Decent beer.

madmitch76 (24807) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2009
5th July 2008. Cloudy brown beer. Strong orange and grapefruit with a little spice. Dry zesty finish. Just a shade too sour to be great.

UPDATED: AUG 1, 2006 2006-08-01, 8-5-8-4-16=41
Hazy amber color; fine, persistent perlage; big head. Original aroma, as usual: malt, milk chocolate, lactic, tomatoes, hop, bitter orange. Good body structure, with malt, the classic woody sourness, bitter orange peel. Complex taste, supported by a stating bitterness. Very good.

Cloudy amber color; creamy head. The aroma is of a Belgian Ale, with some malt, yeast, very light wood sourness. The taste as well is malty, with a light woody and grapefruit sourness typical of BFM and a quite evident vanilla touch. The final is essentially bitter with grapefruit. Good, complex. I wonder how much different is from the one that Philippe had one year ago, for example the hops are not evident, much more the vanilla.
