Ungstrup (29081) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 28, 2006
A hazy orange beer with a disappearing white head. The aroma is sweet spicy with notes of citrus and coriander, and so is the flavor, though in the flavor light notes of hops mixes in.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 10, 2002
A fairly good rendition of the Chouffe theme - maltier and less yeasty than the main brew from Belgium, but similar is fruitiness and hoppiness. Perhaps finishing a bit sweeter (a function of reduced yeastiness and lowered alcohol perception (it’s still 8%) Finally a civilized tap handle in Toronto!
