fonefan (42888) - VestJylland, DENMARK - MAY 6, 2009
Draught @ Brouwerij de Molen, Overtocht 43, Bodegraven, 2411 BT Netherlands.
Unclear medium orange color with a large, frothy to creamy, good - excellent lacing, fully lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, molasses, caramel, moderate hoppy, grass, orange. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter with a average to long duration, and a dry finish. Very easy to drink ;o). Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20090226]

yespr (39114) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 14, 2007
From bottle, no 7 at Papsoes blindtasting. Pours hazy deep orange to amber and with a diminished white head. Acidic aroma and with a mild berry note. Somewhat subdued sweaty note reaches my nose. Flavour holds a nice sweet caramel flavour with a mild acidity lingering inbetween. Ends with a lingering malt sweetness and a bitterness into the finish.

Ungstrup (33469) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2008
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a lazing orangey head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of over ripe fruits, and milk. The flavor is acidic malty with notes of peaches and lighter notes of alcohol and brettanomyces, leading to a dry spicy and slightly woody finish.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 5, 2007
(Bottle 75 cl) Courtesy of jbrus. Very unclear, muddy amber colour with a lightly creamy, off-white head. There’s a vague tartness in the aroma. Medium body with a lightly caramellish sweetness and a somewhat astringent, citrusy acidity. Perhaps a tad infected but not uninteresting or undrinkable at all. 301107

oh6gdx (24523) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 24, 2011
Bottled (from bierzwerg.de). Slightly hazy murky deep orangeish copper colour with a mediumsized yellowish beige head. Aroma is citrus fruits, some slight sweet malts as well as some spices and yeastyness. Flavour is quite strong sweet malts along with citrus fruits, some mild floral and grassy notes. Also mild yeast and some slight alcohol. Caramel and mild raisins as well. Quite pleasantly balanced. Once it warms up it also gets some slight strange hoppyness and mild liquorice.

This bottle a more moderate 8.5% abv. Cloudy dark amber beer, no real head. Low carbonation but there is a little bite. Wonderful fruity start - peach, mango, orange and other fruits. Riding alongside is smooth creamy frothy malt. A little aniseed in the dry finish. Complex.

Corked bottle

Cloudy amber color, thin creamy head. The aroma is together buttery and with vanilla; I mean, in its infection it’s stylish ;-) . Simple flavor with maybe some sweet malt and milk chocolate, but deeply covered by the infection.

harrisoni (16735) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2006
Bottle at St George’s Cemetary RB Gathering. Thanks to Chris_o for bringing this. Russet colour with lasting cream head. Not sure on this. Bit of puke, some toffee. Not my kind of thing. Ughh.

yngwie (16315) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 17, 2007
Bottle. (8.5% ABV) Deep golden beer with a nice, big off-white head. Sweet and bitter nose, but a bit weak. The flavor is sweet, lightly fruity and bitter, finishing with a light bitterness. Medium to full body. Kind of strange, but nice enough. (070608)
