Ungstrup (29019) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2010
Bottled. An unclear amber beer with a lazing yellowish head. The aroma has notes of citrus, malt, and yeast. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, straw, yeast, and citrus, leading to a dry finish.

MoritzF (8389) - Bochum, GERMANY - MAR 22, 2011
(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, orange-amber colour with a tall and tanned foamy head. Sweet cara-malty aroma with notes of black tea and lemon, reminding me a bit of Earl Grey tea. Moderately sweet flavour, medium to light bodied with a moderate carbonation. Present cara-malt character with delicate notes of lemon and again a touch of tea; moderately sweet malt-accented and slightly fruity finish with a very restrained level of bitterness. Nice but no highlight. 22.III.11

Douberd (1999) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUN 20, 2014
Stubby bottle at home. Poured into a tulip. ABV 5.8% Very deep orange colour on thebody, clear, with a big enough white head sitting on top. Good retention, light lacing on the glass. Aroma of grains, nuts, light malts. Sweet malty taste, again very nutty, hay, bread. Medium thin body, good carbonation, seems a bit high at moments. Overall okay, nothing special.

fiulijn (14294) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 21, 2012
Bottle from Beer Planet, Bruxelles
Hazy dark amber to mahogany color; creamy head. Strange aroma, sweet, with vegetables and liquorice, candies. Sweetish caramel, with strange flavor of candies and maybe vegetables, carrots; medium to low bitterness.
Very weird, rather unpleasant.
