Ungstrup (29224) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 3, 2006
An unclear orange beer with a dying white head. The aroma is very powerful with notes of pineapple, grapefruit, and wheat. The flavor is sweet with strong fruity notes - especially pineapple and grapefruit, leading to a dry bitter end. Nice one.

Bottled. Hazy yellow colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is fruity, caramelly, mildly alcoholic as well as nectary. Flavour is very grassy, hayish and yeasty. Bitter finish and aftertaste. The aroma was lovely, but as for the flavours, I got quite dissappointed.

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 16, 2008
Deep blond color, huge foam, persistent perlage. The aroma is hoppy, dry, resiny, with some malt mellow note. Medium body strength, almost all the flavor comes from the hops; some malt is noticeable later, but the hop oils win all. I’m surprised by the big quantity of yeast in the bottle, that spoils a bit the taste of the last glass. Unbalanced.
