bierkoning (10206) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - NOV 29, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2008 Malt and apricot aroma. Full bodied. Apricot flavor at first, followed by a strong maltiness and a fair deal of hops. Some licorice. Just a bit sweetish and a hint of alcohol. Lovely well balanced beer, emphasizing the fruity maltiness. Expensive ($ 5,- per half litre in the shop), but well worth the money. From tap (Arendsnest Amsterdam) the beer disappointed somewhat. Traubenzucker in the aroma. Flowery flavor, somewhat perfumed. Reasonably well hopped and seasoned, just a bit on the sweet side. I was also less satisfied with a bottle tasted in 2008. Orange color, slightly perfumed aroma of tangerine and coreander. Sweetish, perfumed spicy flavor. malt and coreander. Citrus fruit. Not unpleasant, but too perfumed for my taste.

Ungstrup (29287) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 25, 2005
A dark orange beer with a huge off-white head. The aroma is very yeasty and very sweet with notes of berries and spices especially coriander. The flavor is very sweet and spicy - again with coriander standing out, but also contains notes of peach and something I can’t figure out. The mouthfeel is smooth and the end is dry and sweet.

bacchanalia (146) - milton, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2009
Dangerously delicate & refreshing for a beer of 6.5%. On the nose light spice & malt, & a pure gold in the glass. The palate is rounded with hints of perfume, spice & malt with a delicate sweetness. The finish is clean & fresh with a nice bitter dryness. The weight In the mid palate gives a slight sense of the strength, but the delicate style & fresh clean, dry finish makes this a great summer beer. Is it too expensive? probably

Abijen (1473) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - OCT 18, 2013
Pours a golden slightly unclear beer with a good white head. Smells sweet, syrup, bit orange and yeasts. Tastes vanilla, very smooth and orange. Nice bitter finish. Low carbo, thin body and a dry texture.
