Ungstrup (29081) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 25, 2006
A slightly hazy orange beer with a light orange head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of English hops giving it a light spicy and floral note, to accompany the fruity notes. The flavor is sweet malty with fruity notes of oranges and peaches, as well as spicy, floral, and slightly dusty notes, leading to a bitter end. OK, but for a Christmas beer I find it boring.
