Ungstrup (29828) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 6, 2003
An unclear orange beer with a small head - very bubbly. The aroma is sweet with powerful notes of orange. The flavor is great, with a nice sweetness and powerful orange notes and more faint yeasty notes. Ending on a very faint bitterness. Really a good beer.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2006 (Bottle 33 cl) Pale, hazy strong ale. Yeasty and very spicy. I believe this one has all the typical wit-bier flavourings - without being a wheat. 300493

joergen (21497) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 3, 2005

oh6gdx (20902) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 28, 2005
Bottled, huge white head (no matter how I tried to pur it), disappeared in a few minutes. Orangebrown/golden coloured and cloudy. Smells very fruity and fresh. Tastes fruity, spicy and a bit of alcohol. The minor alcohol taste fits the whole well, and suits the sweet fruit taste. Wellbalanced taste.

omhper (19945) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 15, 2003
Bottled. Cloudy orange with creamy head. Orangey yeasty aroma. Sugary sweet with soft mouthfeel. Malty and mild. Once upon a time this was one of the beer that got me started, and I don't know if it has lost a bit of itäs edge, or if my taste have changed since.

Hazy yellow-orange colour with white longlasting head. Yeasty aroma with hints of cloves and citrus. Smooth flavour of cloves and citrus. Has a warming alcohol. Some bitterness in the aftertaste, also some hints of cloves.

fiulijn (15227) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 3, 2003
Cloudy blond beer; giant creamy head. Pleasant malty and spicy aroma (coriander); dry. Dry and spicy taste as well, very well balanced; some malt; correct bitterness at the end, quite long. I appreciate it mostly for its harmony.
