50 cL bottle. Pours hazy orange with a small off-white head. Citric and mild roasted malt aroma, vague note of brett. Dry wooden brett base flavoured with a mild toasted malt coming through. Smooth refreshing malty and mild brett finish. Another fine beer.

Ungstrup (29018) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 23, 2009
Bottled. An unclear amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is acidic with notes of oak and brettanomyces. The flavor is sweet malty with strong notes of wood, medium notes of brettanomyces, and light notes of fruit and vanilla, leading to a dry and tart finish. The brettanomyces scratches the tongue. Thanks yespr for sharing.

oh6gdx (20216) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 20, 2009
Bottled (somewhere during Copenhagen pubbing). Hazy deep orangeish coppery colour with mediumsized foamy slightly off-white head. Aroma is lots of fruityness, some burnt sugar, mild oaked notes. Flavour is quite much the same along with some mild sourness lurking as well. Quite interesting brew, and surprisingly "thick and fullpalated" for being 5.5%.

Cloudy orange brown beer. Thin white head. Palate starts crisp but turns softer. Starts spicy and a little sour. Quickly overwhelmed by hop bitterness. Finishes crisp and dry with some sour oak. Unfortunately the hops impart little but bitterness which overwhelms the other things going on.

Dedollewaitor (13677) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 8, 2009
50cl bottle. Thanks to ChristianScheffel. Pours cloudy to muddy orange with a large creamy white foam and lacings. Nose is mainly of oak, yeast & brett. Full bodied. Flavor is vanilla, pepper, brett and some vaguely sour notes before some fruity hops sneaks in. Funky - and It works quite fine!
