A blend of 1/3 young beer and 2/3 of beer aged 2 years in large oak vats. The more important proportion of oak matured beer contributes to its fruity taste, complexity and intensity. The finish is worthy of a great wine.

yespr (45412) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JAN 29, 2008
33 cL bottle. Pours dark amber with a quickly gone head. Aroma is woody, fruity, slight acidic brettish and solid note of acetone (which I don’t enjoy) - seems dry. Flavour is sweet/acidic, with a blend of fruit and sour notes. Shows a strange chemical note into the finish. Otherwise a very controlled flemish sour, nice.

Ungstrup (37560) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 26, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2003 Second time around - I liked this a lot better. ------- deep red beer with light brown head that disappears fast. The aroma is very fruity with notes of cherry, kriek, tree and acid. The flavor is acidic sweet because of the mixed fermentation. It has a very powerful start, then a bit watery in the middle and ends with a sharp typical gueze aftertaste.

joergen (28103) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2005

oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 12, 2005
UPDATED: APR 18, 2008 Bottled. Hazy reddish brown colour, mediumsized white foamy head. Sour cherry aroma with hints of caramel malt and yeast. Also some quite wooden notes. Bitter, mouthdrying very sharp cherry flavour, along with very sour wooden notes. Also slight yeast and earth in it. Leaves a sticky palate.

omhper (25096) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 2, 2002
Dark brownish red. Big fruity, balasamic aroma. Tart, with balanced acidity and cask character. Complex and simply wonderful.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 3, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2006 (Bottle 25 cl) Recalling the old Rodenbach commercial "It’s wine" this BEER actually reminds me a lot of red wine in both nose and flavour. Filtered, dark reddish beer. Strong acidic vinegar-like notes without much bitterness. Even for Belgians this is a unique beer - but one you grow to appreciate. At least I did. Try this with a paperbag of shrimps at the beach in De Panne. Yummy. 160593 & 240695

Clear dark brown beer. Sour nose if wood and worcester sauce. Light semi dry palate, crisp. Brown sauce, worcester sauce - tangy and fruity. Coca cola as well. Finishes soft, airy and dry. Tangy aftertaste. Classic sour - approachable and drinkable.

Travlr (24665) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - DEC 21, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2016 Deep ruby reddish brown, pale head. Aroma of sour cherries. Flavor of raisins, plums, sweet start and sour finish. Full mouth. Weird but fun. First rating Dec 21, 2008: 7 5 8 5 16 - 4.1. Second rating: Mail bottle. Clear Amber color with a slight red tinge. Aroma of light cherry light tannin. Taste is sweet and sour light cherry. A shadow of its former self. 7 3 7 2 11 - 3.0
