JorisPPattyn (9881) - Ursel, BELGIUM - OCT 16, 2005
Red-brown / chestnut colour with a good, irregular yellow-brown head. Lactic nose, sour, wood, slight saccharine smell, aroma of old Burgundy. Extremely vinous character, dark fruit, red grapes flavours. Medium body, dry, very tanninelike, long lasting main taste. Excellent oud bruin. Mixture, original or labelbeer? Great find, Lachesis.

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2005
No#37. Aroma is sour, with some nuttyness coming in with fruit. The taste is similar with the sourness having a nice sweetness cutting through it making it very well balanced.

Bottled at LC-RBM. Aroma of cherry and very fruity. Chestnust red, beige head, good lace. Sweet & sour, gin, fruit, peppery, woody, port, light dry. We didnt know which brewery but it did remind us of Duchesse and now I see why.

Jerre (3275) - Waregem, BELGIUM - DEC 25, 2008
Bottle, 25 cl. Thx to VACAS, owner of the Bierloods. A hard to find beer, brown color with reddish shine, and a off-white creamy head. Aroma touch off woods, sweet and sourness. Medium body. Taste reminds me at Vichtenaar, have caracteristic from this brewery, it is not to sour or to sweet. Hints of wood. G O O D !
