Ungstrup (29052) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 31, 2005
A red-brown beer with no head. The aroma is weird soru with notes of caramel and wood. The flavor is thin with notes of raisins, prunes, and wood, leading to a dry end.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 25, 2005
(Bottle 25 cl) Version at 6% ABV from "Brij Vander Linden" in Halle. Reddish, not much head. Rather light in body, with tartness in both nose and flavour, but balanced off with a light sweetness. Interesting blend. 220795

omhper (19192) - TyresŲ, SWEDEN - APR 6, 2007
UPDATED: APR 10, 2007 Bottled, original from Vanderlinden at least 20 years old, probably more. Cloudy amber, small airy head. Citrusy and vinegary lambicish nose. Very dry with lots of barnyard. The Brettanomyces is very evident. The body is light and the mouthfeel still lively. The acidity reaches near Cantillon-style levels. It is starting to thin out, going on itís last few years as an alive beer, so it has a slight metaliic edge. Still itís beauty is there, and the flavours are intense and complex.

How to judge a bottle that almost explodes in my kitchen? The impression is for a sweet one, virtually no hop; letís see next time...

bu11zeye (11933) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - FEB 3, 2011
(33cl bottle) Pours a clear amber-brown body with a spare beige head. Aroma of caramel, bread, graham crackers, and cardboard. Flavor of cola, caramel, bread, raisins, and noticeable oxidation with a somewhat dry finish.

brokensail (10547) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 25, 2012
Amber pour with a lot of yeast chunks in it. Very little head. Super oxidized aroma. Lots of sherry, some sweet sugar, a fair amount of cardboard, and a bit of booze, as well. A bunch of miscellaneous dark fruits in the background. The flavor is not much better. Lots of cardboard oxidation, some sherry, dark fruit, and a bit of chocolate. Some caramel sweetness is the best thing about it. Not very good at all.

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAR 19, 2003
Ruby brown color. Small frothy head. Aroma has honey and tropical fruit. No sourness at all, which is surprising. Caramel and sherry. Watery and a hint of metal in the finish. Some milk chocolate. Very unusual beer.
