yespr (30765) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - SEP 21, 2008
75 cL bottle. Pours hazy amber to brown with thick off-white head. Aroma is dry wooden, brett and mild wineous fruity. Dry sulphorish flavoured with a nice dry brett flavour to a smooth wineous fruity base. A bit light bodied yet nicely counter balanced by a lot of flavours rather than a thick malt backbone. Lingering fruity and sulphorish from the back of the nose. Ends dry and wooden.

Ungstrup (29170) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 27, 2005
A hazy amber beer with an orange head. The aroma is sweet with notes of flowers as well as hints of coconut. The flavor is sweet and very flowery combined with notes of eucalyptus and pumpkin, leading to a dry end. It has a slight alcohol burn in the mouth.

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 1, 2005
(Bottle 75 cl) Reddish brown - almost Kriek colour. Hazy with a nice, creamy, off-white head. Incredibly lovely and very delicate nose - aromas of coconut! Delicious, lightly vinous and dry with a touch of acid. Good full body and very, very delicate. Jolly Pumpkin uses open fermentation which might explain the acidity, and they let their beer age on oak which explains the obvious notes of Bourbon and/or Rioje red wine. Yummy indeed. But a "Bière de Garde"?? Not really, this is far better. 240705

madmitch76 (14501) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2009
29th July 2008. Reddish brown cloudy beer. Sour tartness but with a medicinal twist. Plenty of oaky dryness in the finish plus more medicinal spicyness. Slightly out there flavour but a nice beer.
