Ungstrup (34708) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 18, 2013

Papsoe (25063) - 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

Bottle, bought @ Cellar Vin, Barcelona.
Pours hazy pale orange with a small, creamy, white head. Aroma is sweet and grainy, maize, rather sweet. Soft, lightly high carbonation, fine mouthfeel. Flavour is very sweet, grainy, some caramel and a hint of liqourice. Far too sweet as the others, but this nears balance.

erickok (5462) - Leuven, BELGIUM - 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)

Arve_Christian (4846) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 1, 2015
On bottle from Carrefour in Collioure. Clear golden color, soft carbonation and some quickly dissipating foam. Medium/low aroma intensity; malty, Banuyls, raisins. The 7% Banuyls ( at 17% abv) really makes an impact. Medium body & complexity. On the sweet side, almost goes without saying with the amount of Banuyls added. Ok enough craftmanship, but really not my thing.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 25, 2010
Bottle shared by GrOve. A layer of grey bubbles upon a slightly hazed, deep gold colored body. Phenolic aroma, burnt electric wire and pill-box. Notes of yellow fruits. Taste is sharpish fruity and bittersweet. Spicy, maybe floral, with some yeast tones. Medium body. Oily in the mouth. Softens on the finish.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 21, 2014
Flaske, 75 cl, købt lokalt i Collioure, Sydfrankrig. Klar ravfarvet. Ikke meget skum. Trist, flad i munden. Dufter af sød karamel, sur karklud, korn. Ingen eller meget lidt humle. Det er muligt, at det er en unik øl, som etiketten hævder, men den er hamrende uinteressant. Gaab.
