yespr (31624) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 14, 2007
From bottle, blind tasting at Papsoes - beer no 12. Pours hazy orange with a diminished white head. Sweet orange fruity aroma with a mild malt base beneath. Very minor spice aroma note too. Flavour holds a mild yeasty note. Acidic, citric and slight spiced flavour. Ends with a caramel malt note and mild spice flavour. Nice.

Ungstrup (29661) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 4, 2007
Botled. A hazy orange-amber beer with a beige head. The aroma is sweet spicy with junipers standing out, but also with lighter notes of wheaty and fruit. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of fruit as well as a touch of juniper, leading to a dry spicy finish. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 9, 2007
(Bottle 65 cl) Pours a slightly cloudy deep golden with a creamy, off-white head. Somewhat chewing gum-like fruit aroma. Medium body, lightly sweet fruit accents and again this touch of chewing gum. Almost no bitterness. 021107

omhper (19797) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 24, 2006
Bottled (1994 vintage). Hazy amber colour. Aroma of nutmeg, orange, lemon and papery malt. Dryish with interesting, gently oxidized malt character and sparkling mouthfeel. Low bitterness. Still fresh and alive, I liked it!

Hazy orange color. Fruity, woody and a bit sour aroma.; some apples apricots and flowers. Medium body, some dry malt flavor, a bit woody, too poor at the end. Ordinary bitterness. Not interesting.

Oakes (12777) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 8, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2009 Cloudy amber, vibrant-looking. The aroma is heavily spicy - ginger, orange, cinnamon oils, herbal hop and lightly bready malts. Full cinnamon/ginger taste, mace, some bready malts and soft bitterness. I like where this goes, even if the cinnamon and mace oils are a little heavy-handed.

bu11zeye (11971) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - FEB 3, 2007
(Bottle) Pours a lightly hazy golden body with a creamy off-white head. Aroma of orange peel, nutmeg, lemon, and other spices. Flavor of cinnamon, nutmeg, citrus, vanilla, malt, and more spices.

argo0 (11583) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 9, 2002
Fruity and somewhat hoppy aroma, with hint of vanilla. Flavor is disappointing, as the ’Hoppy’ in the name never really materializes. Instead, there’s some spiciness and mild hops. Overall, an OK beer, just not really what I expected.

bhensonb (11376) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 19, 2007
Complicated aroma of winter appropriate spices. Hazy golden amber color with a frothy head that tries to leap out of the glass. Starts with cinnamon and other spice, and some malty sweetness. The hop bitterness is thoroughly mixed with spice, herb and malt. Grand finish of balanced flavors. Not so obnoxiously spiced as many Xmas ales. This one tickles the palate. Quite a treat.
