Ungstrup (34218) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 14, 2009
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with an orangey head. The aroma has notes of alcohol, metal, and over ripe fruits - crazy. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of caramel, alcohol, metal, over ripe fruits, vitamins, leading to a dry metallic finish. Thanks fonefan for sharing.

An orange-amber beer with a nice orange head. The aroma is sweet hoppy combined with notes of caramel. The flavor is sweet with light notes of alcohol and caramel, the latter giving it a sticky mouthfeel.

Bottled (2007)@The Chriso Pre-GBBF Shindig 2011 "Donkey Dork Lord Edition". Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is fruits, caramel, earth and some slight yeasty and mild wooden notes. Flavour is quite much the same. Rather mellow. Hayish in the finish. Mild alcohol sweetness lurking as well.

(Bottle 50 cl) Slightly hazy amber beer with a decent off-white head. Sweet, malty, alcoholic nose. Very sweet, malty flavours with a strong alcohol which is too much for this beer’s body. 250705

omhper (23313) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 21, 2003
Bottled. Hazy dark orange. Aroma of toffee, melon and plum brandy. Very sweet, soft rounded mouthfeel, but from there on sticky syrup takes over, and it leaves a cloying feeling in my throat.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Fairly flat orangey looking pale beer. Distinctly sweet and fruity start gives way to malt and a slighty bitter finish with noticeable alcohol.

10% is a stock ale well blow me down with a grasshopper ... light ruby colour ... rich sweetness with sour raisins and a unusual hint of fermented cheese in the aroma ... sweet ... malty ... again sour raisins showing through in flavour .. long fruity linger.
