Tap @ ZBF 2009.
Pours hazy, darkish golden with a nice, staying, frothy, white head. Aroma has caramel, light viniousness, some roasted notes and plums. A fresh dose of hops as well. Super, quite dry mouthfeel. Flavour is dry, lightly tart, good oranges, wood and roasted malts. Quite drinkable.

Fin (8107) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2009
Had this at Zythos Beer Festival, March 7th and 8th 09 Pours a murky light amber colour. The aroma is a little sour and citric. Taste is also a touch sour and nothing like the description. Its fruity, there is bitterness but its quite citric throughout. Not sure whether it was intended to be like this. A6 A3 F6 P3 OV12 3.0

330ml Bottle: Sweet aroma of caramel, fruit, light yeast, candi sugar, some malts, and a hint of pollen. Poured brown/orange in color with a large, fizzy, beige head that diminished but lasted throughout. Cloudy. Very sparkling. Full of medium-sized particles throughout. Flavor is medium sweet. Tastes of fruit, yeast, slight toffee, light caramel, cherries, and slight resin. Light to medium body. Thin, fizzy, lightly dry texture. Lively carbonation. Sweet, yeasty, lightly dry, lightly sticky finish. 9%ABV is totally hidden.

sheatripper (863) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - FEB 17, 2009
33 cl. bottle. Cloudy dark amber with a fleeting foamy head. Citrusy aroma with a bit of funk underneath, also caramel pear and floral notes. Lightly sweet caramel flavor with a bit too much citric tartness for my liking. Some grassy hops in the back. Dusty, dry and slightly funky finish. Mildly carbonated. If it wasn’t for the excess sourness I’d realy love this. Otherwise OK.

Ungstrup (29988) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 4, 2009
Bottled. An unclear golden beer with an off-white head. The aroma is both sweet and acidic, while the flavor is sweet malty with notes of spices. The body is surprisingly thin. Thanks yespr for sharing.

notalush (5222) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 27, 2008
Pours a murky copper, with a fizzy, short-lived head - aroma of melon, apricot, cranberry, a lot of earthy, musky character, and a slightly wild quality - full carbonation in the mouth - semi-sour and quite earthy up front, with tart cranberry flavors, and a near lambic-like funkiness - moderate acidity - starts getting a little sweet through the middle, but just a tiny bit - flavors of melon rind and orange couple with this, and it gets a little grainy near the finish - ends tart, semi-dry, and moderately hoppy - quite an interesting beer, like a strong belgian mixed with a small portion of lambic - nice.
