auerbrau (3148) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - SEP 6, 2010
On tap at Hill Farmstead Brewery - Greensboro Bend, VT. Big buggy nose full of Oud Bruin like cherry sugar intensity. Lots of nice citric and lactic acids. Tangy, vibrant and fruity, backed with a good mineral profile. Pours a murky and muddy reddish amber, with a good finger of fine whitish head. Flavors are sweet and ethereal. Vague spice, big cobwebby Brett and lots of pungent cotton. The ethereal sweet and spice mixture makes it a feel the wee bittest gimmicky and soapy, but it’s not overly detracting. There is some yeasty oddness in the finish that makes a touch unclean feeling. It’s quite a ways from Saison, but for an American funky beer, it’s pretty damn good.

Ungstrup (29082) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 21, 2010
Bottled. An unclear dark golden beer. The aroma has noets of wheat, malt, and hops, as well as some notes of over ripe fruits. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and over ripe fruits, leading to a dry and bitter finish. Thanks FrumptyDumpty for sharing.

Handibottled (thanks to FrumptyDumpty for sharing!). Slightly hazy amber colour with mediumsized off-white head that leaves some lace. Aroma is bready malts, some earth, barnyard, mild fruits, some leathery notes as well. Flavour is quite wineous along with some mild fruits, leather and some earthyness. Smooth and rather balanced.
