Ungstrup (29473) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 17, 2005
A hazy orange beer with a disappearing off-white head. The aroma is sweet with notes of alcohol and oranges. The flavor is sweet with notes of alcohol, sirup, as well as hops.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 24, 2006
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Clear, deep golden with a small, off-white head. Surprisingly neutral aroma - pehaps with a vague whiff of pale malt. Full body with a high degree of honey sweetness. But I really need something to scratch the surface here - it’s simply too smooth and vague. Fortunately the alcohol is fairly well hidden, as there’s no balancing bitterness. 191206

Bottled. Deep golden colour, not too much head. Aroma is fruity, grassy with notes of honey and fruits (apricot, mango). Malts and caramel also noteable. Flavour is sweet alcohol, hops, malts, grass and lots of fruits. Also some mild spicy hints. Lovely complex.

A beery start! Gradually gives way to honeyish wine with a hint of spice. Marvelous re-creation of an ancient beer!

fiulijn (14978) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 15, 2007
Golden color; creamy head. Light malt aroma. Not thick, but the taste is very sweet (fermented honey, mead) without saffron as promised, maybe with a very light fruitness deriving from the muscat grapes. Easy to drink, but simple.
