Clear golden, corporate apple-juice hue..frothy, sporadically lace-inducing white suds atop. Clove and banana yeast esters in the nose..strong spicy esters..estery flavors too...clove-like, banana, with a sweet grittiness underneath...one-dimensional...and unfortunately I hate that belgian yeast driven strong trippel like dimension. Forever pass.

Draft at Obriens, fresh of a gold medal performance at GABF! Golden orange hue with light ring of white foam. Nose is citrus, light fruits, bananas, and Belgian yeast. Flavor is Belgian Candi, pears, apples, light citrus, modest malt in the background, finishes with light sweetness. Medium body, lightly viscous texture, light carbonation. A well-balanced Belgian strong with modest sweetness and masked alcohol presence.

I had this on tap when it first came out at PP CBad, and I forgot to rate it, so here I am back trying it again. Yellow color. Banana Belgian yeast aroma. Lightly sweet. Easy to drink. Delicious. Creamy white head.

Ungstrup (29662) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 7, 2009
Draft in Carlsbad. A golden beer with a lazing white head. The aroma has notes of spicy hops, oranges, and peaches, as well as a touch of butter. The flavor is sweet with notes of citrus, wheat, hops, spices, and a weird note of something I’ve a hard time to name, but is a little like butter.
