yespr (43243) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUL 27, 2008
From bottle #30 at sk8vikings American blind tasting. Pours hazy orange and with a lacing white head. Aroma is dry and acidic with a solid orange fruity aroma. Flavour is solid acidic and orang fruity. Dense flavour yet towards smooth. Acidic and citric finish with a nice sulphor and wooden touch. Finish makes me shiver. Smooth and utterly wellbalanced.

Ungstrup (36442) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2008
Bottled - tasted blind - my 1800th US beer. A hazy amber beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with a very acidic note too as well as some fruit. The flavor is sweet with fruity notes - primarily of peaches as well as some notes of grapefruit, and a strong acidic note, leading to a tart finish.

omhper (24624) - Tyres, SWEDEN - MAR 2, 2010
Bottled, thanks marsiblursi! Lightly hazy golden, mid-sized head. Concentrated lemon and old hay aroma. Dryish and tart, well rounded with marked vinegary acidity. Some caramel and slight vinous oakiness adds complexity to the acidic flavour. Finishes with stale hop bitterness.

Corked bottle, courtesy of a generous trader
Hazy orange color. Sour aroma, with mild fruitness, citrusy, and light cellar touch. Good mouthfeel, hidden malt flavor, silky sourness, citrusy touch, with a late astringency. Excellent.

harrisoni (17997) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2011
Deviation. Yes good on aroma. But better on finish. Authentic funk on finish. Yes lemon and wood. Preety decent but lacks real authenticity.. Bit too lemon squash. Tasty but too much lemon. 3.7

Oakes (16955) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 8, 2008
Cloudy pale beige with thick head. Complex bretty nose has leather, horseblanket, wood. One of those beers you want to sniff forever. Deep tartness on the palate. Loads of funk and fruit (peach, cherry). Genius plan! Exceptional balance, crazy tart. And its held up to a couple of samplings.
