Ungstrup (29474) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 23, 2011
Bottled. A hazy red beer with a bubbly brown head. The aroma has notes of alcohol, red berries, wood, brettanomyces, and red wine. The flavor is sweet with notes of wood, brettanomyces, malt, caramel, red wine, and alcohol, leading to a dry tart and alcoholic finish. Thanks pinball for sharing.

yngwie (13693) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 8, 2011
Bottle, 375ml, courtesy of Meilby. A clear-looking, reddish brown beer with a small, beige head. Rather acidic on the nose, with dried fruits and alcohol. A bit one dimensional. Flavorwise it’s much the same, it’s nice indeed, but it lacks complexity, meaning it feels one dimensional. There’s lots of vinegarish acidity, as well as dried fruits, some sweetness and alcohol. A quite nice one, dangerously easy drinkable. 110708
