330ml Bottle: Sweet aroma of caramel, fruit, light yeast, candi sugar, some malts, and a hint of pollen.

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.

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 (29477) - 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 (4910) - 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.

beastiefan2k (2478) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - NOV 28, 2008
color is dark orange/copper. Aroma is stingy, nose tickling, esters. a little too much - strong topical fruit and berries. It’s coming off almost solvent-like. Taste is melon with a bit of an alcoholic edge. Either its too young or just needs a little something else.
330mL bottle @ Spuyten Duyvil poured into Westmalle Goblet.

MiP (13663) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 1, 2008
Bottle, 9%. Violent gusher, though quite cold. Good spicy aroma, slightly citric. Cloudy dark amber colour. Good malty flavour, also quite spicy. Distinct peppery note, slightly rough, but also pleasant.
