Ungstrup (34703) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 6, 2002
A brown beer with a very nice head. It has a nice fruity aroma and a very powerful ale taste with quite a lot of bitterness for a belgian beer. Really an enjoyable beer.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2006 (Bottle 33 cl) Dark amber with a nice, full head. Lots of floating sediments that creates small, bubbly geysers when they settle at the bottom of the glass. Typical, dark- malty flavours with a very full body. Fresh rather than sweet with a subdued touch of hops. 251093

Clear red-brown beer. Short lived tan head. Very dry palate. Dry malt, subtle chocolate, minerals, dry and slightly spicy bubblegum. Finishes with dry creamy malt and a slightly spicy aftertaste. Hard work.
