Ungstrup (32182) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2009
Bottled. An unclear brown beer with lots of yeast sediment floating around under a brown head. The aroma is sweet malty with an acidic edge. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, spices, and vegetables as well as light notes of wood, leading to a dry and slightly acidic finish.

Bottled. Quite a gusher. Ambery brown colour with a mediumsized foamy beigeish head. Aroma is raisins, alcohol, spices and some mild notes of honey and some sweet maltyness. Flavour is being quite much the same in a very pleasant balance.

fiulijn (17462) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 4, 2009
Blind tasting at Papsø’s, corked bottle
Brown color, with some floating particles; small head. Herbal aroma, with vegetables, light cinnamon and lemon; flawed. Sourish mouthfeel, caramel and vegetables flavor, astringent. Very bad.

yngwie (16045) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 30, 2012
Bottle. A super-gusher, producing an unclear, brown body and a small, beige head. Ginger, cloves and some lemon on the nose. The flavor is very spiced, with caramel sweetness as a foundation. Medium body, with surprisingly pleasant carbonation, at least considering its gushing. Well, a decent beer it is, but it lacks on balance. There’s too much spices compared to body and sweetness, but as you see from my score, I like it anyway. 110610

Bottle from Voldby. Nice head with good duration. Color is brown. Aroma and taste are rich malt, fruits, caramel and hops. Quite sweet.
