Ungstrup (29484) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 29, 2006
A hazy orange beer with a white head. The aroma is sweet and very fruity, and so is the flavor, leading to a very dry end.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 16, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 11, 2005 (Bottle 33 cl) The "Abt" is normally the top-product in a range of abbey-beers - and this is no exception from that rule. Dark golden with a fairly huge head. Fruity, spicy freshnes in spite of the very potent, warming alcohol. Some good hoppiness in the finish. A rather atypical Abt - but still nice. 061097
