Thanks to Alengrin! 330 ml. bottle sampled @ “Tim needs to get rid of his ticks” Tasting. Enjoyed together with tderoeck, Benzai & Alengrin. 2007 Vintage. Never heard of this brewery before. Clear golden with no head. Nose is like soap, cardboard (prob. oxidation) & metal; Taste is extremely sweet, huge amount of artificial sweeteners & malt sweetness, sweetness just keeps lingering & gaining a weird unnatural / chemical profile. Body is a bit thinner. Even by soft drink standards this is very sweet in a sweetener type of way.

Benzai (11048) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JAN 23, 2015
Sampled from bottle (vintage 2007, thanks to Alengrin) @ Tim needs to get rid of his ticks tasting. Clear pale yellow golden color, virtually no head. Smell and taste malts, wort, sweet sugar, sweet, some iron. Low body and carbonation. Crap.

Alengrin (3547) - BELGIUM - AUG 19, 2014
UPDATED: APR 30, 2015 The best known table beer from a very old-fashioned, little known Wallonian brewery that hardly makes anything else and distributes its products only locally. Loose, off-white, quickly dissolving head, colour pale orange blonde with brownish hue, clear, very little sparkling. Weakish aroma of caramel, pilsener malt, honey, saccharose, straw, sweat, grass. Neutral onset evolving into artificial sweetener, nutty malts, dryish spicy notes, thin mouthfeel as custom for the style, finish in a surprisingly sharpish, long, authentic hop bitterness, which is a rare feature in table beers - or in any low-alcohol beer, for that matter. In its particular style, at least an interesting product.

Ungstrup (30977) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 8, 2010
Bottled. A dark golden beer with a white head. The aroma has notes of hops, straw, and malt. The flavor is very sweet with notes of unfermented grain, sugar, malt, and straw, leading to a dry finish. Thanks yespr for sharing.

Papsoe (25072) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 8, 2010
Bottle 25 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours a clear golden with a white head. Artificial and perfumy nose. Thin body, oddly perfumy and sticky sweet relieved by a surprisingly hoppy finish. A very strange and very unbalanced beer. 080910

Bottle at Delirium. Nice change after lots of drinking. Dark gold/amber color with a strong white head. Strong malt and anise/honey aromas. Anise in the finish. Not quite dry. Intriguing. Must be one of the best bieres de table. Think my response indicates that the more beers you have, the more enjoyable more beers seem to be!
