Ungstrup (29332) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 28, 2008
Draft at Stockholm Beer Festival 2007. A hazy golden beer with a lazing off-white head. The aroma is sweet with hoppy and malty notes. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of spices and hops, leading to a dry bitter finish. The body is thin. Not a Dubbel in my book.

Svesse (6157) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - FEB 3, 2008
(Draught at Monk’s Café, Stockholm, 1 Feb 2008) Amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Fruity, rather discreet, nose with notes of blood oranges and caramel. Malty, fruity taste with orange peel, caramel and hints of citrussy hops in the finish. Well balanced beer with the fruity notes staying in the background. Nice, but lacking something extra.

fiulijn (14552) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 5, 2007
Draught at Stockholm Beer Festival 2007
Copper color. Light aroma, with very light sourness (infected?). Ordinary flavor, nothing special, with very light peaches. Too simple.

Draught@SBWF 2007
Light copper brown color, small white head. Strong aroma of orange peels. Flavor is a bit malty with citrusy notes added. Maybe orange peels also in the flavor. Simple, drinkable but a bit boring.

omhper (19378) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 16, 2007
Draught at Monk’s Café, Stockholm. Hazy amber, brief head. Aroma of grass and orange. Medium bodied with balanced sweetness. Caramelly with evident almondy yeast character. Spritzy, rather clean mouthfel. Very low bitterness. The orange is there, but stays in the background. Overall a well balanced beer, though perhaps a bit vague.
