yespr (31769) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAY 30, 2007
33 cL bottle. Pours red/amber brown with a good creamy light brown head. Aroma is sour while the beer still is too cold, becomes more malty, yeast and spiced as it heats up. Flavour is first slight berry-sour, going strong malty, sweet to dry and then yeasty. Finish is clearly spiced and alcohol makes an appearance.

Ungstrup (29802) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 2, 2007
Bottled. A deep red beer with a huge orange head. The aroma is sweet and very fruity, peaches, mango, and more, combined with notes of berries, yeast, alcohol, prunes, and some caramel. The flavor is very sweet with strong notes of fruit and berries, peaches, cowberries, mango, and more, as well as a spicy note including coriander, cloves, and hints of cinnamon, but also with notes of alcohol, yeast, dusty hops, and wood, leading to a dry woody and spicy finish. Nice.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 23, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Dark golden with huge amount of floating impurities that never really settle. A reddish tint to it and a big, fluffy head. Rather full-bodied and very sweet, but apparently no sugars added - this is "volmout" - all malt. Strange but very pleasant. 310198

joergen (21468) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 28, 2004
Hazy redbrown colour with off white foamy head. Sweet aroma with notes of hops and alcohol. Very carbonated. Sweet acidic flavour with notes of raisins, yeast and chocolate, nice bitterness. Not bad, but I have had more interesting belgian ales.

fiulijn (15210) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 21, 2004
Cloudy amber color, quite dark; big creamy head. Nice malty aroma, a touch of oranges and vanilla. Quite good malty body (maybe too dry and thin), with a chocolate and orange touch. Quite good, but too thin body.
