Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 17, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2005 (Bottle 75 cl) Vapeur really produces some rather unique and excentric brews and this is no exception. Reddish orange colour pretty much without any head and a rather flat appearance. Some fruit in the nose but already here you sense the sourness. In the flavour I find some initial sweetness which is rapidly replaced by an immense sourness. Not the gueuze-sourness - this has it’s very own character. Huge sediment at the bottom, making this finish a lot softer when poured. 250699

As "Cochonnette" - basically similar to "Cochonne" but offered in 25 cl bottles which the brewery claims matures differently - that is, with less character. 270999

Bottled. Cloudy range-brown. Yeasty nose with notes of oranges. Sweet, fruity and malty with some butterscotch and a syrupy finish with medium bitternes.

madmitch76 (24187) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2010
2nd January 2009. Cloudy brown beer, quickly receding cream head. Nicely sour with a dry coca cola character. Light and frothy. Very dry finish which normally gives me the hump but it’s okay in this beer.

fiulijn (20221) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 6, 2003
Cochonnette. Beautiful red-amber color. Aroma of malt; warm alcohol. Good body strength, but average malt presence and a touch of alcohol; warming. Strong ale, lacking of character.
