Ungstrup (29287) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2005
[At Københavnske Øldage 2005] A hazy dark yellow beer with a small white head. The aroma is sweet with loads of cinnamon. The flavor is very sweet with cinnamon everywhere and a dry spicy end. Very Christmas like - or much like JensenTaster puts it, like drinking Bastogne cookies - I like Bastogne cookies and found this one surprisingly good.

(Bottle 33 cl) Hazy, amber golden with an off-white head. Sweetish, spicy nose with a fruity touch. Medium body, very sweet and sugary with spicy, cardamom notes of "Speculaas" cookies. No bitterness. Too much on the sweet side but quite interesting indeed. 281107
