COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Belgian pale & pilsner malts w/ Styrian Golding for bittering and Saaz for aroma. Ginger predominates the spicing. Fermented in primary with Ommegang’s house yeast, followed by secondary with Brettanomyces bruxellensis. Dry-hopped in secondary w/ a blend of hops; Tettnang being the stand-out. The flavor profile is very herbal with an earthy undertone (very fitting for a Belgian-style farmhouse ale). The dry finish and pronounced hop aromas hide the 8% abv very well. Dangerously drinkable for its strength and character.

Ungstrup (29367) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 4, 2007
Bottled. An unclear golden beer with a white head. The aroma is sweet with primary notes of fruit, but also with a light notes of brettanomyces. The flavor is sweet malty with quite strong notes of fruit and citrus as well as light notes of milk, leading to a dry spicy finish.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 2, 2007
(Bottle 75 cl) Courtesy of Degarth. Slightly hazy, pale golden with a white head. Vaguely tart, citrusy nose with a whiff of yeast. Medium body with fruity accents and a somewhat astringent quinine-like bitterness. I would’ve thought that the Brett character had developed more by now. It’s hardly noticeable in this bottle. 301107

omhper (19436) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 25, 2008
UPDATED: APR 25, 2008 Bottled, thanks kmweaver! Pours muddy golden with airy head. Sweaty, lightky citric yeasty nose. Lightly fruit with medium body, some fresh hops mixes with a light touch of Brett acidity. Slimmer and more drinkable than I’d expect an 8% beer to be, yet complex. The funky character drowns a little bit in fruit and yeast though.

11th October 2008. GABF. Hazy gold beer. Light and sweet. Lots of herby and spicy sweetness. Crisp palate. Some wheat beer characteristics. Good but would not want loads of this.

2007-11-30, Papsø’s Blind Tasting
Corked bottle

Hazy blond color. Breadish aroma, poor, abit perfumy. Sweetish flavor, some mix of malt/cereals/cornish flavor, uninteresting, with a very light banana and vegetable touch. Not good.
