yespr (30689) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - FEB 2, 2008
75 cL bottle. Pours hazy yellow to orange with a huge off-white head. Aroma is grainy to pilsner like hoppy. Flavour is medium sweet with a solid note of Belgian yeast, quite grainy, caramel malt and a mild bitterhops note which reminds me of a blend between a classic pilsener and a Belgian ale. Ends light grainy and bitter

Ungstrup (29081) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 27, 2002
An unclear amber beer with only a slight head. It has an aroma like as if has been spontaniously fermented. The flavor is a little flat with hints of spontanious fermentation but without the sharpness - it has a round sweet flavor. A really good beer.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 16, 2005
(Bottle 75 cl) Orangey golden, not really that much head - but a lot of CO2 though... Some spicy - citrusy? - notes. Starts a bit on the sweet side only to go through an underlying tartness to end bitter. Rather complex pattern. 250997

Bottled. Hazy orange colour, big fluffy head. Aroma wheat, hops and some sugar. Flavour is hops, malts, yeast and some earthy and ginsengic notes. Very weird mix, but still very refreshing.
