Ungstrup (38414) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 23, 2007
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a very fast disappearing light brown head. The aroma is lovely acidic apply combined with notes of wood and malt. The flavor is strongly apply with a slight acidity from the apples, which mixes beutifully in with the notes of wood and malt. Another masterpeice with a good body.

(Bottle 75 cl) Pours a clear, dark, nutty brown with a small, off-white head dissipating in no time. Sweet’n’sour lambicish aroma - or perhaps rather Faro? There’s some brown sugar in there, and woody almost bourbon style accents. Medium body with sweetish, oaky accents and a tart finish. Thanks heaps highlandlad for this gem. I really love Billy Bs... 080107

Bottle (thanks to Duff). I would have liked to taste this alongside the Golden version but a few weeks separated my tastings. Obviously darker than the Golden but I expected something more malty, which didn’t materialise. In fact it seemed pretty similar to the golden, except maybe sweeter. It starts off distinctly sour, but some sugary sweetness kicks in in the middle and hangs on in there into the aftertaste. Not quite as successful as the Golden in my view. Still damned interesting.

harrisoni (19338) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2006
Bottle at St George’s Cemetary RB Gathering. Many thanks to arleks and duff for bringing this. Black beer with beige head. Sour apple, some toffee and coffee. Sticky like a toffee apple. Bit sweeter than the gold one we had at Battersea. Good fun to drink though.

Oakes (18851) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 14, 2013
Light brown and a bit cloudy. Wild nose, brett, loads of barrel like charred port and also quite of fruit. Taste is sweet, balsamic without the acetic, lots if appley finish. Alcohol is hidden. There us some subtle diacetyl notes that I’m not liking but I don’t get them with every sip. Fun, whacky stuff. Quite unique

bierkoning (13689) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - SEP 13, 2006
LCRBM2: Apple wine in the aroma, combined with a touch of roast. Strong very sweet apple flavor, sugary and vinous. The brew is so sweet that it hurts your teeth.

thewolf (12803) - Kolding, DENMARK - JAN 17, 2011
Bottle @ Oz’n’NZ tasting 2011. [thanks bluebetty]
Pours deep chestnug, small creamy, off-white film head. Lovely aroma with tartness, green apples, oak, lightly roasted malts, liqourice and wood. Medium carbonation, light and fresh mouthfeel. Flavour is really super-fresh, tart, vinegar, lots of apple character, lightly vinious. Some roasted malts and liqourice mix up well. Sourish, sharp, oaky finish. Super fresh and delicious. Yum!

Pinball (12329) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 22, 2017
Dark ruby cloudy no head Bottle at fermentoren. Rich dark fruity like Belgian salad beer dark fruity. Very rich and complex flavor. Flavor is sourness and apple rye and mslts. Resembling the best Belgian salad beers.

3.7
madsberg (11776) - Søborg, DENMARK - JAN 10, 2007
Bottled. Amber coloured. Unclear. Brownish head. Loads of apple and a light sourness underlaying it all in the aroma. Flavour is quite sweet and again has loads of apple. Is quite acidic and dry, but has a nice balance. Is medium bodied. Ends on a alcoholdense and quite acidic note. Not as good as the Golden Malted, but still quite a treat.

3.5
faroeviking (11219) - Chupando chellas es como ellas, FAROE ISLANDS - JAN 18, 2007
Bottle. Dark anber colour with hardly any head. Sourish malty sweet aroma. Quite sour, malty, fruity flavour with some bitterness and alcohol.
