Ungstrup (29230) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 24, 2006
A hazy orange beer with an orange head. The aroma is sweet hoppy with notes of peaches and some notes of dust. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of fruit, some of it a bit over ripe, as well as light notes of alcohol, but only light especially compared to the 11% ABV.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 7, 2006
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Beautiful, clear dark amber with an off-white head. Aroma of cherries and alcohol. Rather solid body with a warming alcohol, lightly spicy and with the cherries popping up again in the flavour. Even without any real hoppiness this manages to remain harmonious and very drinkable. 060706

oh6gdx (20303) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 24, 2007
Bottled. Clear pale ruby red colour with a minor beige head. Aroma is cherry, alcohol, wood and some plum. Flavour is wood, berries, fruits and some metal. For an 11% beer this is very thin and empty, but it hides the alcohol scaringly well.

omhper (19337) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - DEC 30, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2007 Bottled at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Clear dark amber, brief head. Aroma of fruit and candy sugar as well as red currant liqueur. Sweet with clean mouthfeel. Some caramel lies underneath the red currant, and there are loads of malt. The massive alcohol is hidden in sweet malt, yet it does not become sticky. Finishes almost without bitterness. A complex and nicely warming beer.

TBone (12545) - Pori, FINLAND - JAN 21, 2007
Bottled
Cherry red color, not much head. Sweet cherry and malty nose. Fruity - but only lightly - suprisingly thin and even metallic mouthfeel. Alcohol is not present very well. Too simple - expected more.
