Ungstrup (29081) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 16, 2012

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 15, 2012
Bottle 37,5 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours an almost clear amber with a huge and frothy off-white head. Fairly sophisticated aroma, fruit - indistinctive - wood and Brett. Medium body, soft mouthfeel, slightly tart and Bretty again with the wood shining through. A little sulphur. The lychee is a fruit too subtle to really come through, but it’s quite an enjoyable beer. 150512

Very hazy dark amber beer. Massive dirty cream coloured head. Palate is light, semi dry and a little crispy. Minerals. Lightly sour - mild white wine sourness. Grape. The lychee is pretty subtle - just adds mild tang. Finishes smooth and semi dry.
