yespr (45869) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JAN 11, 2009
25 cL bottle at DHVL, 1992 vintage. Pours clear and golden deep amber with a small off-white head. Dry and wooden initial aroma, followed by a brown sugarish and raisin sweet note. Somewhat oxidised. Flavour is dry malty, subdued metallic and towards dry breadish. Dry malty finish with a light yeasty fruity accent. Nice to find yet clearly over the top and flavour has none of the sweetness the aroma promised.

Ungstrup (37889) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 4, 2003
The aroma is powerful; sour and acidic with notes of sweetness and sharpness. The color is deep red, almost brown and it has a fine light brown head, though fast disappearing. The flavor is sweet, wellbalanced and round - the sharpness must have been taken by the oak-casks. But the sharpness lies hidden. A fantastic flavor, though a little thin in the middle before it starts prickling the tongue.

Travlr (25264) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - FEB 15, 2011
Draft, tasted side by side with Kelso Imperial Red and Bockor Bellegems Bruin. This one had the most bitterness, which clashed a bit with the deep sourness at the heart of the beer.

3.5
omhper (25250) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 5, 2002
I sampled the 1996 version in 2001. Brownish red apperance, not much head. Slighty acidic, mild and soft with hint of cask character. Refreshing and complex.

Papsoe (25062) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 24, 2005
(Bottle 25 cl) Clear, brown with a reddish hue. Not really sweet, not really sour. More dry with a slight hint of hops in the finish. Light in body and very pleasant and quenching. Spends 20 months in oak vats - that’s a long time indeed. Perhaps one could expect more flavours from that long period of maturing? 070795

Warning! Early amateur rating! Brown beer. Slightly sour but nothing like a Duchesse. No bitterness. Rereshing.
