Ungstrup (29168) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 9, 2004
A hazy red beer with a beutiful though disappearing off-white head. The aroma is extremely sweet with notes of alcohol and berries especially lingonberries. The flavor is sweet with notes of berries and some wood, the mouthfeel is soft and dry.

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 8, 2005
(Bottle 30 cl) Reddish brown with a thick, brownish head. Sweetish with notes of slightly burned, slightly smoked malts - but never cloyingly sweet. Very full and harmonious. Typically Dutch Bock - nice indeed but perhaps it lacks just a touch of personality. 010104

29th November 2010.
On tap at De Bekeerde Suster, Amsterdam. Clear paleish brown beer. Good white head. Sweetish malt and a little toffee. Traces of marmite and sulphur. A little coca cola sour note towards the semi dry finish. Ok but lacks cohesion.

Courtesy of bierkoning, tnx Edo!
Clear, dark amber color, decent beige head. Slightly cardboardish, caramelly nose with banana type sweetness. Decent body and quite clean flavor. Caramel, some alcohol, low bitterness. Malty and balanced. Not too bad, more pleasant than their Lente Bok.

Bottle. [thank you, bierkoning]
Pours lovely ruby-red with a medium, frothy, off-white head. Aroma has light caramel, some citric hops with a light smoky note. Highish carbonation, fine mouthfeel. Flavour is a bit metallic, some sweet malts. Lots of dryness and a light fruitiness. Quite hoppy finish. Okay.
