MPA (793) - Amager (form. Nørrebro&Aalborg), DENMARK - AUG 23, 2014
Bottle. Hazy amber with off white head. Powerful aroma of hops: apricot and peaches. Mango and citrus as well. Some malty caramel is let through along with licorice, which is subtle but noticeable. Maybe because I’m searching for it. Caramel sweetness is dosed with a heavy bitterness filling the mouth adding a saltiness. Having a hard time tracing the licorice in flavour. Great beer though.

Aethien (28) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 28, 2014
Poured in a Mikkeller glass the beer is amber coloured with a small off white head and lots of lacing. Smells like a fruity IPA, hoppy aroma with tangerine, grapefruit and just a hint of something spicy. Taste is a wonderful and weird mix of flavours with a pronounced anise seed flavour alongside citrus flavours and hop bitterness, confusing at first but delicious once you come to grips with it.

Botella de 33 cl en el momento la madrugada del 11-07-214. L1 hasta 16-10-2015. Color ámbar dorado oscuro con bastante espuma blanca. Aromas herbáceos frescos, una muy ligera fruta dulce tropical y regaliz negro al final con cierto tono de madera y resina y algún cítrico al calentar. Cuerpo medio con 6.7 vol fácil de beber y con poco gas. Sabores suaves e intensos ligeras frutas tropicales al inicio con ciertos herbáceas y un final de madera de regaliz apreciable combinado con cierto amargo resinoso, y algo de limón y lima al final, al calentar, que permanece en boca un buen rato. Bastante buena increíbles sabores y bastante intensos, para repetir sin duda.

Ungstrup (29223) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 28, 2014
Bottled. An amber beer with a huge beige head. The aroma has notes of liquorice, flowery hops, malt, and straw. The flavor is sweet with notes of liquorice, lemony hops, and straw, leading to a dry liquorice finish. A bit too much liquorice for this liquorice lover, but had anticipated worse.
