3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Collaboration brew celebrating Ungstrup’s 20.000th rating on this very site. Rocky, sticky, stable, off-white head over a pretty ’old gold’ coloured beer with vivid sparkling. Lots of leafy hops in the nose, lemon zest, grapefruit, freshly grated ginger, dried apricot, cooked rhubarb, freshly baked bread, tarragon. Dry but refreshing fruitiness in the mouth, citrus touch, soft mouthfeel, nice bready malt sweetness, spicy notes, powerful peppery hop bitterness in the finish reminiscent of an IPA more than a saison, as which this is apparently intended. Not a saison to me but a very tasteful and appetizing beer, in any case.

Bottle at RBSG a few years back. I’m still looking for the label for this one. Please let me know if anyone has an empty bottle/label they can trade/send me. Pours clear gold with white head. Nose and taste of grassy hops, honey, apricot, hay and light spicy malt. Medium bodied.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
330ml bottle [BBE 01/02/2012]. I hope this will still do. Hazy bright yellowish golden colour with average to huge, frothy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, white head. complex fruity, floral, herbal and minimally spicy aroma, slightly peppery, hints of mustard, honey, rose petal. Taste is minimally to moderately sweet, slightly tart, minimally bitter hoppy, hints of pineapple, orange zest, bubblegum, a floral touch, some cilantro; sadly some grassy, bitter off-flavours. Very complex, though still mild and very well balanced. Superb!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a hazy dirty beige/orangey color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of rustic malt notes with fruity ester and quite strong notes of paradise grain and light citrus notes. Taste is a complex and intense mix of rustic malt with balanced sweetness level mix in with some fruity ester and light citrus notes with perhaps a touch too much of paradise grain notes. Body is quite full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Well brewed though perhaps a bit too much spice and ester for its own good.

Bottle @ Uncle Chris’ house in Fürth. I think I picked this up at De Molen. It’s cool to try Ungstrup 20k- cheers, Jens! Glad to have met you during my Danish excursion! Hazy, dark golden appearance with a lively, off-white head. Big orange peel, floral, effervescent, citrusy potpourri, spicy yeasty aroma that’s very unique. Tangy, rich floral hoppy, fairly herbal and woody, big chewy orange citrusy, peppery, earthy flavor. It’s also fairly spicy with a lot of nuances going on. Cool beer. Congrats 4,350 ratings late, Jens!

Bottle chaired by omhper, thanks.
Lasting off-white head. Clowdy thick yellow color. Fresh but over dry-hopped aroma that gets grassy. Fresh hop taste and fine bitterness. Medium body and a good beer for a summer eavning.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught @ Gastropub Nordic, Tampere.
Rated on 20110615.
Pours dark copper color with a light head. Aroma of hoppy fruits, some saison-like elements try to come through also, mild soap and some lemony belgian yeast notes. Flavor of fruits, hoppy grass notes and mild malts. Bitter palate. A bit disappointing though.
