BMan1113VR (7890) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 18, 2010
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with a large white head with good lace over a hazy golden body. Aroma of brandy, alcohol, grapes, caramel and an odd "smoothness"...something I cannot describe. Taste is alcohol, earthy, very dry, chalky, vanilla, pear, dried apricot, stone fruit. Very attenuated with creamy carbonation.

Pours dark cloudy grapefruit. The aroma is grapefruit rind. Full mouthfeel, and well hopped with a citrus imparting hop. Taste of grapefuit and caramel and toffee. It grew on me. Bottle from trade with Madmitch76.

Flavour is light sweet, fruity, citrus, grapefruit and oranges, firm bitter hoppiness leading to an earthy dry liquorice finish. Medium to fullbodied. Just a hint of alcohol detected. Good beer and totally different from other BSA’s.

Ungstrup (29988) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 12, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 13, 2009 Bottled. Thanks a lot Carlo and Urbain for this bottle that I got for my 40th birthday. A hazy golden beer with a big lazing orangey head. The aroma has strong notes of spices among them nutmeg, alcohol, fruit - peaches, and some yeast. The flavor is sweet with notes of spices - coriander, nutmeg, and others, malt, caramel, yeast, and fruit, leading to a dry finish.

Papsoe (25075) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 12, 2009
Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of Ungstrup. Pours a cloudy deep amber with a solid and creamy off-white head leaving a neat lacework. Intense fruity aroma with lots of esters and some phenols. Medium body, fruit, yeast and an edge of cough syrup - a little caramel also. Rather hoppy finish where the alcohol also becomes rather evident. Not a bad beer at all but not as complex as the best from Struise. 121109
