A deep brownred beer with a fluffy lasting tan head. Sourish berry and wood aroma with vinegar and sugar notes. Some cheesy tones also. Earthy flavor with sour malt notes. Fruit, citrus and vinegar tones. Good, but tastes rather old. jonas (7748) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - NOV 11, 2004

Interresting aroma to say the least: Fruit (orangepeel, strawberries), earth and wood, joghurt.
Deep oaky brown, low visible carbonation, yellow low lacing head.
Earthy flavors, strawberries, citrus and wood, lactic sourness.
dry, light body.
Wood and berry aftertaste.
Bottle I brought back from Belgium. Brown, thin, fluffy & white head. Aroma is rather neutral, with some vinegarish aroma. Taste is malty, somewhat sweet, reserved sourness and a balsamic vinegar character. Notes of dried fruits, wood. Really rather good. pivo (2685) - GERMANY - OCT 24, 2004
Great vinegar nose, brown-red color, and tan head. Dark vinegar tastes with some apple cider, fruit and even toffee tones mixed in a complex profile. Some raisins towards the end followed by a dry thin finihs. Takes a while perhaps to warm up to this beer (and this style) but it is sophisticated and overall an amazing beverage.

Bottled. Purchased at Hop Duvel in Gent. Dark tanned amber with a small dense faomy head. Nose is odd; woody and malty with a meat and salad dressingaroma belnded with light sour fruit, spice and faint wood notes. Taste is light vinegar, wood, malts, and tart fruits sprinkled with sugar. Body is mildly acidic and tart. Medium carbonation. Finish is light vinegar, amlt, wood and spiced fruits. Ungstrup (38140) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 8, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2009 Vintage 81 sampled 2008: A hazy red-brown beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of metal, oxidation, fruit, and cherries. The flavor is sweet with notes of oxidation, metal, over ripe fruits. Too old, but still nice.YogiBeera (2569) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 1, 2004
An unclear brown beer with a small head. Both the aroma is sweet and sour. Not the best of the type, but a still a nice beer.
Hazy brown red amber colored. Little layer of a head, leaving laces. Vinegar - like apple wine vinegar nose, woody, sour milk taste. Unreal.
