yespr (30631) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - APR 15, 2008
33 cL bottle. Pours hazy orange with an initial huge white head. Honey sweet, spiced and light floral aroma. Flavour is sweet. Light floral and spiced yeasty note. I don’t think the beer holds honey but it has those classic floral and spiced notes - I presume from the yeast. Very delicate. Light caramel malt base with a light dryness into the finish.

Ungstrup (29017) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2004
A dark yellow beer with a dense white head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of yeast - just like a Belgian blonde should be. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of yeast and a slightly dry hoppy end. An OK beer - but nothing special.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 30, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2005 Re-rate - as I consider this a new version: (Bottle 75 cl) This beer used to be only 7,2% alc. vol. I bought this one at the brewery in a small town outside Dinant. A light, slightly hazy beer with a tall head. Extremely fruity and complex flavour, very soft and mild. Has some slightly wheaty touches, but I’m not sure if there’s actually wheat in this beer. 081104

(Bottle 75 cl) Old version at 7,2% ABV. 6/3/6/3/12=3 140201
