Ungstrup (29168) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 9, 2004
A slightly hazy orange beer with a beutiful white head. The aroma is very spicy and flowery, with notes of elderflowers. The flavor is sweet and very spicy - again elderflowers shines thru - the end is dry both from the spices and hops. A very refreshing beer.

fiulijn (14342) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 23, 2004
Hazy blond color. Quite simple aroma and taste, some maltiness, even a bit metallic; but a fairly good hopping makes this brew more pleasant. Quite strong and long final (also with a touch of wistaria).
