COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is the original beer from Ecaussinnes. 7% alcohol. It is spiced, but you don't really taste the spices. Nice amber colour, lightly caramelised with a light bitter taste at the end. A very nice beer, recommended by Michael Jackson.

Ungstrup (29081) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 11, 2004
[I believe this is the one I had - at ZBF 2004 it was called Ultra Ambree] The color is hazy light brown and it has a fine though collapsing head. The aroma is sweet malty. And the flavor i sweet malty with notes of yeast and coriander. The alcohol runs prickling over the tongue before a dry hoppy end sets in.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 9, 2007
(Bottle 33 cl) Pours an almost clear amber with a dense and lasting, off-white head leaving laces. Sweetish aroma of caramel and malt. Full body with a heavy malt sweetness and distinct caramel notes. A surprising bitterness ensures that this doesn’t get too cloying. 080207

Beautiful amber color; giant creamy head; fine perlage, plentiful; beautiful lace.
Nice malt aroma, slightly fruity, honey.
Good body strngth, malty, well balanced, with a nice aromatic final. Just a light note of medicine, quickly disappearing; spicy.
Not original, but really a solid one.
