Draught @ 9th Belgian Beer Weekend, Brussels. Unclear medium amber orange color with a average, frothy, fair lacing, mostly lasting, beige head.

Body is medium, texture is watery, carbonation is soft. (010907)

yespr (29683) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAR 8, 2008
ZBF2008: From tap. Pours dark brown with a lacing tan head. Annis seed spiced aroma, light liqourice to peppery aroma. Flavour is much the same. Too overly spiced, looses balance to the mild caramel malt base.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 20, 2003
The aroma is slightly sweet with notes of yeast, redcurrant, and other berries. The color is an unclear red, and it has a small fast disappearing head. The flavor is very sweet, soft, yeasty, and complex - yet boring - it misses some kick (it is too soft). Not a beer that I'll go back for.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 28, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Dark, reddish bronze colour with a small, off-white head - surprisingly small actually. Huge bottle sediment. Even the bottleneck is full of yeast although this has been stored upright for quite some time. Aroma of yeast and some notes of overripe fruit - plums I believe. Flavour is sweet’n’sour with some noble rot and notes of caramel and honey and some sweet fruit. Rather vinous with a warming alcohol. Gets better and better as it warms. 280805

oh6gdx (20004) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 7, 2006
Bottled. Dark amber colour, mediumsized head. Aroma spice, plummy, raisins and some hoppy notes. Flavour is smooth, sweet malts with hints of raisins, plum and some acidicness in the finish. The acidic part is a bit unpleasant, otherwise a nice brew.

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 23, 2002
Dark amber-ruby ale. Good malt aroma. Full bodied, rather sweet, well malty, smooth, alcoholic. Strong final. It lacks some aromas, spices and character.
