Ungstrup (31473) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 26, 2007
Bottled. A hazy orange-amber beer with a huge bubbly light orange head. The aroma is sweet dusty hoppy and fruity. The flavor is sweet fruity, both citrus fruits and apples, but also with notes of spices and caramel, leading to a lightly bitter dry end. Very easily drinkable.

Papsoe (25069) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2005
(Bottle 25 cl) Another beer from Bios brewed according to a Hopduvel recipe. A noose-beer??? They really have a morbid sense of humour in naming their beers those Belgians. Golden with a nice frothy head. Feels rather light in body in spite of the alcohol. Massive bitterness with an underlying sweet note. A bit hard to pinpoint this. 240397

omhper (21892) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 26, 2005
Bottled. Clear golden. Similar aroma to Hopduvel Blondine with it’s intense herbal spicyness. Medium sweet with juicy orange and peach flavour. Intense and overall hard to distinguish from Hopduvel Blondine, except for the slightly lighter body, and less perfumy nose.

fiulijn (16931) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 8, 2009
Bottle from De Heeren Van Liedekercke, vintage 1991, 18 years old, 6% ABV
Dark amber, brownish color, hazy, with very few bubbles and a Real Ale - like head. The caramel aroma is a bit oxidized and rusty, like the cap. It has a light caramel flavor, very light residual sweetness and light acidity. The bitterness is almost gone. This beer is too tired, even if not completely undrinkable.

harrisoni (15794) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2010
I found this 25cl bottle hiding in a box of beer at home. I’m guessing I bought it at Dranken Geers some time ago as the BBE was 23/10/10. Hazy gold/orange, lasting thick white head. Some spicy Belgian yeast on aroma, bit of bread, some orange/tangerine fruit. It’s fine in mouth some more orange furit. Some kicking hop on finish. Good hop on finish, quite biting. Rather a fun Belgian blond. Drinkable.
