Ungstrup (34690) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 29, 2006
A hazy orange beer with a fluffy white head. The aroma is sweet with notes of spices and malt. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of citrus and spices - especially cloves, leading to a dry and very spicy end.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 27, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 17, 2007 (Bottle 33 cl) Golden, slightly hazy ale. Pretty full-bodied, soft with some fruity notes and only a slight bitterness. Drinkable indeed, but not very refined. 140501

bhensonb (14172) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 15, 2009
Bottle at Cambrinus in Brugge. Pours orange gold with a foamy white head. Fresh, light fruity aroma. Medium body withy frothy carbonation. Hint of heat. Clean, refreshing, nice bit of hop. Drinks nicely.

bierkoning (12581) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - SEP 3, 2004
Sampled at De Gouden Leeuw, St Lieves Houtem. Seems dry at first, but a sweetish cane sugar flavor comes up. Just a bit alcoholic and acidic. . Hint of caramel. Not great, but certainly well drinkable in the late summer sun.

thewolf (12136) - Kolding, DENMARK - FEB 4, 2010
Bottle. [thank you, Yespr]
Pours clear pale golden with a big, frothy, yellowish head. Mild aroma, yeast, sweet, biscuity malts and light lime. Lowish carbonation, oily mouthfeel. Flavour is weirdly sharp, soft malty, yeast. Kinda weird, but hides the alcohol well.

MoritzF (9448) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - JUN 5, 2011
(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, golden colour with a big and slightly tanned foamy head. Sweet and slightly bready malty aroma with a distinctively oxidised Madeira-like touch, accompanied by a tinge of candied fruits. Moderately sweet flavour with a light level of sourness, medium bodied with a calm, if not flat carbonation. Bready (cara-)malty taste with notes of brioche and a lighter fruity touch; mildly sweet and slightly sourish fruity finish. Something different but I have to admit that I am not a fan of this brew. 05.VI.11

marcus (9231) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 20, 2009
This clear yellow beer poured with a fluffy white head and a floral aroma. There is a nice caramel malt flavor - not too sweet - with sme very tasty hop bitterness at the finish.
