Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - DEC 31, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2006 Cask at Charlie’s Bar, Copenhagen.
Fine off-white head, hazy deep chestnut colored body. Lots of hops in the aroma with notes of fruit, nut and toffee. Flower and fruit hops dominates the flavor. Very fruity with a bitter dry finish. Flavorfull and very tasty.

MiP (15274) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 20, 2004
Cask. Nice fruity aroma. Dark chestnut colour, creamy white head. Sweetish tea-like flavour. Quite bitter flavour and aftertaste. Very malty, but balanced well by the bitterness.

Ungstrup (34376) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 25, 2004
[Cask at Charlie's Bar, Copenhagen] A dark nut brown beer with a fine beige head, though collapsing. The aroma is light of fruit, caramel, and nuts. The flavor is flowery (roses), fruity, and rather sweet, but with a nice grassy hoppyness, and a bitterness that balances the sweetness, and lingers on the tongue. A great flavor.

fiulijn (19160) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 11, 2003
Brown-amber color. Very nice aroma, flowery, elderflower... Bitter, fresh, flowery, wonderful (delicate elderflower again). Long, persistent final.
A giant flowery bitter.
