MiP (14447) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 19, 2010
Bottle, 8.5%. Strong aroma, distinctly spicy, some fruit, a little alcohol. Hazy yellow colour. Small stable white head. The flavour is very spicy, slightly sweet, good coriander note. Not so well-balanced, but flavourful. Distinct bitterness in the aftertaste, quite clean and pleasant. Also a sour hint in the finish, not a problem, but might be after a while.

Ungstrup (30392) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 19, 2010
Bottled. A hazy golden beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of malt and lots of fruit - peaches and oranges as well as some yeast. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, lots of fruit, yeast, and some phenols, leading to a dry finish.

Papsoe (25073) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 19, 2010
Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of MiP. Pours a cloudy golden with huge impurities and a dense white head. Very perfumy aroma - coriander I reckon. Medium body, very fruity and perfumy with lots of yeast and phenols. Somewhat astringent finish - not hoppy though. 190210

KyotoLefty (7552) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 14, 2010
Deep, dark, ckoudy yellow-gold with lots of flaoties and a tall, merengue head. Aroma of honey, grapefruit, green apples, barnyard. Very fruity, with sweet and tart tones. Sweet start, with honey and cookie malt, grassty, earthy hops, then a nice sour fruit flavor, finishing with a strong hop bitterness. Lemon, grapefruit, zest. Wow. Very bitter indeed. Interesting. Intensely bitter after taste. Rich, full body without being heavy. A super hoppy tripel, though it isn’t called one. Cleaner without the sediment. Good stuff!

sayravai (4691) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 14, 2009
(Bottled) Clear golden with a medium, firm and lacy, lasting head. Aroma of grassy hops, honeyish malt, some floweriness. Honey-malty flavor with sweet sugar presence evident, some grassy hoppiness, hints of vegetables. Light to medium body, pretty soft carbonation. Alcohol clearly present, although not burning. Strangely this feels like most of the malt had been replaced with sugar - but still no sugar is mentioned in the ingredients. Maybe it’s just the slightly alcoholic feel, and quite high residual sweetness.

thebeertourist (5098) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 11, 2009
Bottle from De Bierloods, Adegem. Pours golden with a healthy head. Fruity, sharp lemons aroma. Fruity, but with solid bitterness as well. Noticeable alcohol. Dry finish. Not bad.

Ober (2813) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - JUN 11, 2009
A clear yellow colored beer, with a big foamy white head. The aroma of malts, fruits and some spices. The taste is fresh sparkling. Flavors of hop bitter and malty sweets. Fruits like citrus and orange. The aftertaste is bittersweet.

BartC (726) - Lichtaart, BELGIUM - FEB 3, 2009
Blond beer with a nice white head. Hoppy aroma and flavor. The first brew I tasted had a lot of citrus aroma. Brew 2 is far less bitter and more an average good hopped beer.
