Ungstrup (28458) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 13, 2007
Bottled. A hazy light yellow beer with a white head. The aroma is acidic citrusy with continental eurpean hop notes. The flavor is sweet and acidic with notes of wheat and citrus, leading to a dry wheaty and citrusy end - reminds me of a Wit - very refreshing. The body is a bit thin

(Bottle 33 cl) Pours a hazy, pale golden with a tall and handsome, white head. Fresh, citrusy, hoppy nose. Light in body with a clean malt base but otherwise completely dominated by very dry, citrusy hop notes that also leave quite a heavy bitterness. Pleasant. 180907

2011-09-21, draught at Moeder Lambic, Fontainas, 8-4-7-3-14=36
Cloudy blond color (first glass to be poured from this keg), with giant and creamy head, covering the sides of the glass like a lace made of yogurt. The aroma is graceful and impressive, with crispy malt, light Belgian yeast, delicate grassy hops. The body is light, with mild malt flavor; the yeast character is too much (was the keg shaken?) giving a spicy, peppery note, increasing the bitterness, and ending with some astringency. Must try a cleaner glass...

Cloudy deep blond color, with a huge and compact head. Very good aroma, strong, spicy hops, light fruitiness too. Good body strength and good malt flavor, quite dry (because of the strong bitterness), with a sharp spicy character. The final is powerful and long. It doesn’t betray the Belgian tradition, but pushes it in a right direction; the combination of spicy Ales with a more powerful hopping has a good result here. Very good.

Hazy blond color; nice perlage; thin persistent head. Good hoppy aroma, some malt and spices. Dry mouthfeel, but correct body strength, some malt flavor (light), quite sharp spicy character (coriander and white pepper), strong bitterness. Pleasant, refreshing.
