Ungstrup (29134) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 8, 2004
A hazy light orange beer with an OK white head. The aroma is sweet spicy with dominant notes of coriander. The flavor is sweet matly - too sweet for my liking - with notes of spice most dominant is coriander. It is very carbonated. The sweetness from the high alcohol content is not hidden very well in this beer.
