Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 25, 2013
Bottle 75 cl. Pours a clear amber with a tiny off-white head. Sweet and fairly clean caramellish nose. Solid malt base, lowish carbonation, hardly any fruitiness, rather caramel malts and pumpernickel making this one come out mostly as a Doppelbock! But a decent one at least. Quite some alcohol presence. 250213

Bottle shared at the ChrisO Flags of Many Nations Easter Tasting 2013 - London. Pours clear gold with a light, white film head. Sugary, bready malt aroma, hints of tangy berries. Big sweet flavor with light alcohol punches, very sugary bread, light toffee. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly sticky and sugary sweet to finish with bread and honey. Lightly cloying but not too bad on the whole.

bhensonb (14079) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 1, 2010
Bottle from BevMo. Pours clear copper with a foamy off-white head. Mild aromas of malt and hop. Medium plus body with foamy carbonation. It’s malty. It has yeast/spice. It’s identifiably Belgian, but the flavors aren’t so crazy as many of those. It’s a good ale. Finishes a bit floral and mildly spicey. Note: the body thins as the carb leaves.
