Ungstrup (29849) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 9, 2006
An orange beer with a beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with light notes of fruit - especially oranges. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of caramel and quite a lot of fruit, leading to a dry bitter end. Compared to the French farmhouse ales and Belgian Saisons, this is a very clean beer.

fiulijn (15310) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 18, 2009
Draught at Pony Bar, New York
Hazy blond color. Light aroma, very light apples. Sweetish and fruity malt flavor, and very subdued spices; it’s not bad, but it seems they picked up the wrong yeast to let it be a real Farmhouse. Pleasant but easy.
