Ungstrup (34658) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 28, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2010 Bottled. An amber beer with a huge orangey head - a bit over carbonated. The aroma has notes of grapefruit, malt, dusty hops, and brettanomyces. The flavor is sweet with notes of brettanomyces, grapefruit, spices, and straw, leading to a dry spicy finish. Thanks to the boys at Struise for giving me this for my 40th birthday - and yespr for being the messenger.

oh6gdx (25456) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 10, 2009
Bottled (thanks fonefan). Hazy deep amber colour, huge white head. Aroma is fruits, wood and some mild herbal notes. Flavour is sour fruits, wood and some caramel as well as very sweet malts and some mild berryish notes in the finish. Rather fresh and thick flavours that ends like in a wall. Technically no aftertaste, which kind of sucks. Excellent while it lasts though.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 28, 2009
Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of joergen/MiP/yespr. Label claims 7.8% ABV. Clear amber golden with a small, rough off-white head. Fresh, peachy hop aroma. Medium body, roasted malt and fruit but again dominated by marvellous peachy hops that leave the finish to be dry and bitter. Delicious. One of very few successful Belgian/US hybrids. 200309
