yespr (30766) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - APR 11, 2008
33 cL bottle. Pours hazy orange with a huge light creamy white head. Mild yeasty and floral aroma. Flavour is sweet fruity with a mild and mellow yeasty note. Lingering light sweet finish with a light fruity note in addition. Quite sweet actually but is somehow works okay here. Well composed and refreshing.

Ungstrup (29174) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 31, 2007
Bottled. A dark golden beer with a slight haze under a huge orange-yellow head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of malt, yeast, and spices. The flavor is lovely sweet - not too much - not too little, with strong notes of malt, yeast, caramel, flowers, and spices - among them coriander and cinnnamon. The alcohol tickles the tongue slightly in the aftertaste.

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 30, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2005 (Bottle 33 cl) The good people at "Belgisk Bryg", Lars and Gert, warned me: "This is insanely sweet", they said. And even by Belgian standards, they are SO right. Fully golden, slightly hazy beer with a tall, creamy head. Obvious ale-character, but actually I don’t taste a lot besides the sticky sweetness. Apparently brewed with flowers and plants, but it can’t be the only sources for the sweetness. 090704

Bottled. Orange coloured with an off white head. Fruity aroma of yeast and spices. Very sweet flavour of yeast, spices and fruits.

oh6gdx (20272) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 20, 2007
Bottled. Deep hazy reddish golden colour with huge creamy off-white head. Aroma i honey, caramel, spices, slight alcohol too. Flavour is honey, caramel, some spices and slight earthyness. Flavour hides the alcohol very well. Nice and refreshing.

omhper (19243) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 1, 2002
The unlabelled bottle comes wrapped in paper. Pours copper coloured, and sports a creamy, dense head. The aroma is very fruity and somewhat flowery. It is full bodied and dominated by a sweet mango flavour and candyish tofee. It has rich, thick mouthfeel and a lingering sweet mango finish. It is an excellent ale when sampled in small amounts, although a full bottle gets almost cloying.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Delicate, sweet beer! Lots of floral and herbal subtleties. Aromatic, interesting and light.

fiulijn (14350) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 10, 2001
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2004 Amber ale. Wonderful malt aroma. Sweet, a bit spicy. It smoothly turns to bitter with a beautiful aromatic final. Very good example of Belgian strong ale.
