yngwie (12637) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 26, 2007
Bottle, shared by papsoe. Clear, a bit pale, yellowish body, topped by a white head. Fruity nose with tea, citrus and pale malt. Fruity flavor as well, quite citrusy, with some yeast and pale malt and a good bitterness., especially towards the finish. Medium body. Quite bitter finish with some wheat-like flavors. It took me some time to decide if I liked it or not, but ended up deciding I like it. Quite classic, still strange in a way. (071006)

Clear yellow with a white creamy head & lacings. Fruity sweet aroma, quite fresh. Dry metallic taste. The taste is not pleasant in any way like the amber version!

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 8, 2007
(Bottle 33 cl) Slightly hazy golden with a dense, creamy, off-white head leaving a neat lacework. Spicy aroma with some yeast. Full-bodied with lightly sweet fruit notes, a solid malt base again with a spicy edge - perhaps a whiff of ginger - and a distinct yeastiness. Dry and very bitter finish. Very classical Belgian. 061007

thewolf (10770) - Kolding, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2007
Tap @ YNWA. Pours a light golden with a small creamy white head with good lacework. Poured a bit too cold perhaps. Mild aroma with malt and orangy fruityness. Sweet flavour, lightly vinious and quite spicy. Some fruityness, pine, vanilla, coriander and sourish oranges. Perhaps a touch too sweet for my liking.

MiP (13046) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 10, 2007
Bottle, 8.5%. Very fruity aroma, sweet hops. Clear golden colour. Big white head. The flavour is also fruity with some pepper. Better than I expected.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - JUN 11, 2007
33 cl bottle. No yeast at the bottom. Reddish amber colour with a little but nice head. Aroma of yeast and spices, and hints of dried fruit. Nice flavour of yeast, malt and some berries, that ends in a nice sweet and little bitter at the end. Hard to find the high alcohol.

0,33 bottle. Pours light yellow colour with low, thick white head. Palate is just a bit oily. Bit sweet.
