Ungstrup (31462) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 26, 2011
Bottled. A pale golden beer with a huge lazing beige head. The aroma has notes of spices, yeast, and some caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of fruits, malt, caramel, and yeast, leading to a dry yesty finish. Thanks yespr for sharing.

Papsoe (25069) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 26, 2011
Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours a clear amber with a creamy and lacing off-white head. Sweet caramel and fruits with quite some yeast in the nose. Solid body, caramel but dominated by an extreme yeastiness. Hardly any hops. So Belgian that it almost hurts. 260911

oh6gdx (23671) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 3, 2009
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2009 Bottled (from Belgian Shop). Reddish amber colour, small slightly off white fluffy head, leaves nice lace. Aroma is caramel malts, some slight vegetables and mild grass and earth. Flavour is quite much the same with also a slight hint of alcoholic sweetness.
Draught@Mallaskukko, Turku. In addition to the above, this one has rather sweet tropical fruit juice concentrate/extreme nectary notes in the aroma. In the flavour it’s quite the same but has a bunch of spicyness to it as well.

yngwie (15759) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 27, 2011
Bottle, as Biere de Printemps. A clear one, golden in color and with a foamy off-white head. Fruity, dried fruits aroma with a sugary touch. Some notes of tea. The flavor is sweet and fruity, some maltyness and a little bitterness. A warming touch towards the mostly bitter and fruity finish. Dryish, full-bodied. A quite decent one, although nothing special. 110827

Leighton (15306) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 1, 2013 Tap at Dranken Geers, Gent. Lovely for a Leffe. Caramel, bread, not too swet or boozy. Decent balance. Drinkable. (3.6)

Bottle as breakfast beer at Borefts basecamp - Utrecht. Pours clear copper with a big, frothy white head. Bit of that Leffe caramel and sugary malt character in the nose, along with yeast and brown bread. Medium sweet flavor with soft berries, light bitter leaves, herbs. Medium bodied with average, creamy carbonation. Sweet finish with herbal hops, moderately dry caramel. Pretty basic overall but OK.
