Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 21, 2004
The aroma is sweet and roasted with light notes of sourness and banana. The color is brown and it has a beutiful brown head, though particles is floating around in it. the flavor is sweet malty with notes of caramel, roasted malt, and marcipan. A good beer.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 11, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Well, the alcohol alone calls for this to be labelled a Belgian strong, doesn’t it? Reddish brown beer with a fine head and the usual Boelens murkiness. Nice, scented nose. Very sweet, full body with a lot of caramel in the flavours. Some spiciness although I believe none are added. Another great Boelens beer. 300499

Dedollewaitor (13390) - Odense, DENMARK - DEC 31, 2008
33cl bottle. Gift from the people at De Heeren van liedekercke. Pours extremely muddy amber with a small creamy head and lacings. Nose is sweet, dusty and spicy. Caramel, yeast and fruits. Medium bodied. Sweet fruity and dusty taste. Lots of yeast and vegetables. Herbs and leather which I really dislike - may have come from the yeast. Warmth from alcohol. Disappointing.

Post Borefts I jaunt to De Heeren van Liedekercke. Hazy dark amber beer. A little toffee caramel on the nose (very light). Caramel malt with a little fruit and light sourness. Pretty drinkable.

MiP (13046) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 9, 2009
Bottle, 8% at De Heeren van Liedekercke. Weak grassy hop aroma (dry-hopped, I am told), with some dark sweet malts as well. Dark brown colour. Very lively with bits of yeast perpetually swirling round in the drink. Big stable creamy tan head. The flavour is mildly sweet, nicely malty. A hint of roasted malts balance off the sweetness a bit. Actually very well balanced, I think. The kind of beer I like.

harrisoni (12648) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2009
On tap at DHVL. Brown colour with lasting beige head. It’s ok, some ok malt in mouth. From the others at the table who had it I was expecting a bit more, but as I drank it, I couldn’t really discern anything other than it was a pretty decent malty Belgian ale. Which it is.

yngwie (12605) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 1, 2011
Bottle, 75cl corked, at De Heeren van Liedekercke. It’s an unclear, brown beer topped by a dense, finger-thick, off-white to beige head leaving lacings. Cellar, prune notes, hints of chocolate and Belgian yeast as well as some caramel on the nose. The flavor is sweet, with chocolate and caramel hints, prunes and a fine hoppyness giving some bitterness. Full body, smooth and nicely carbonated. Mostly sweet in the end, but with bitterness trying to bring balance. A really pleasant one. 110501
