Ungstrup (29665) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 25, 2007
Bottled. A deep red beer with a tan head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of berries and wood, with a slight acidity in the back ground. The flavor is sweet as well as acidic with notes of malt as well as strong notes of berries, and light notes of wood, which lends a dryness to the finish.

(Bottle 75 cl) Courtesy of BelJohansen. Pours a clear, orangey brown with a dense, off-white head leaving some laces. Sweet and sour aroma with a woody touch. Rather light-bodied, vinous, notes of dried fruit, berries and lots of woody accents. The finish is lightly sour. Not exactly overwhelming but a pleasant and quaffable sour. 220308

fiulijn (15060) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 14, 2008
Beautiful brown color with red beams. The aroma is a bit woody and cheesy, original. The flavor is of an ordinary Amber Ale, with a touch of wood and very light sourness, but without the sugar and body that I like in my beer. The final is therefore week.
