markschiedon (96) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 15, 2014
Drinking blind from a 750ml bottle. Not so nice aroma for a beer. I smell cow manure, sulphur, oxidation and after I got to know what beer it was, I’d recognise the vinous aroma. It’s a pale orange, clear beer with a small whitish head. In the taste mainly sweetness with some bitter en sour undertones. It reminds me of grains. Low carbonation. Don’t like it much, but had worse...

erickok (3173) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - AUG 18, 2013
Labeled Cap d’Ona Spéciale au Banyuls, stating 7% Banyuls wine is added resulting in a 5.5% beer. Foamy white unstable head over a clean copper body. Sweet aroma, with some brown sugar, raisin, cooked vegtables and sweaty yeast. Taste is exactly as expected, bit cloying, brown sugary sweetness, very mild classic hop underline. Sticky ending. Certainly not a successful experiment for me. Pass. (33cl bottle, gift from Darren and Flavia, from and drank in Ax les Termes)

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 18, 2013
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a yellowish head. The aroma has notes of malt, grapes, and straw. The flavor is sweet with notes of grapes, malt, and caramel, leading to a dry finish.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 18, 2013
Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Comes as: "Cap d’Ona Spéciale". Pours a hazy golden with an off-white head. Sweet overripe fruit, almonds and caramel in the nose. Medium body, lowish carbonation, overripe fruit, a little metal, appears rather oxidized. Not really sure I enjoy this blend. 180313

TheJestersBeer (1932) - SWEDEN - OCT 31, 2012
750ml bottle. Pours a medium amber with a pink tinge, and a white head. Fruity, spicy aroma, malt, dried fruit, caramel, earth. Off-dry, medium body, low bitterness, balanced CO2. Fruity, slightly sugary taste, caramel, slightly spicy, dried fruit, hints of wine, orange juice, faintly earthy. Odd. (2012-09-14)

Brandman (1992) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 14, 2011
Redish golden body, white head. Aroma of really rough malt, vine and berries. Taste is mixture with sweet grainy malt, fresh bitter hops and some winey flavours. Some alcohol, but light and smooth mouthfeel.

Kestral (506) - Årnes, NORWAY - JUL 15, 2011
Bottle. A thin layer of bubbles lay shortly on top of a deep golden, leaning to amber, body. Aromas are mostly caramel and roasted malts, with a slight metallic skunk at first. This fades after a while though. Evident alcohol. Very straightforward. Rather sweet, this one, with a metallic finish. Light bodied, fizzy carbonation. Not their best.
