yespr (29683) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - FEB 19, 2008
From tap at Den tatoverede Enke. Pours slight hazy and golden orange with a huge dense and lasting white head. Aroma is yeasty, light fruity and slight acidic. Sweet, yeasty and light fruity flavour. Has the strange mix between hops oil and belgian yeast, strange/unusual yet still pleasant. Ends with a growing bitterness, as if the hops stick to your tongue.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 26, 2006
A hazy orange beer with a head like whipped cream in an off-white shade. The flavor is very sweet - like a typical Belgian Triple - with notes of yeast - a bit too sweet for my liking. The flavor is very sweet and malty combined with a powerful, but somewhat dusty hops note, that resides for a spicyness with notes of cloves combined with yeast. The end is dry and yeasty.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 19, 2007
(Bottle 75 cl) Hazy golden with a bubbly, off-white head. aroma of yeast and amalt. Medium body with sweetish malt and fruit and some yeastiness - but hoppy? Well, the 80 IBUs are certainly very well hidden in a vaguely bitter finish. If this was an attempt at creating a hybrid between a Belgian and a "big" American, then the Belgian genes certainly won. 170407

oh6gdx (20004) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 19, 2006
Draught. Golden colour, huge white head. Strong hoppy flowery hot-summerdat-urineish aroma. Flavour is luckily better, but still it is harsh, grassy and hayish. Some sweet alcohol mixing in too. Feels very unbalanced in my opinion, and also the alcohol disturbs.

omhper (18949) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 29, 2005
Bottled. Hazy deep golden, extremely rich and firm head. Looks beautiful! Strong Belgian style yeast aroma along with flowery hops. Sweet and solidly malty, fruity with plenty of almond character. Drying out towards a finish with near eternal herbal bitterness.

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2009 2009-02-24, bottle at Akkurat, Stockholm, 8-5-8-5-16=40
Hazy blond color; big creamy head. Spicy aroma, like a Tripel. Good body strength, malt flavor, dry, spicy, with much more bitterness than a Tripel, some Belgian yeast and light alcohol feeling. Very good.

2006-09-01, draught at Den Tatoverede Enke, Copenhagen, 7-5-8-5-16=41
Hazy golden color; thick head. Strange aroma, vanilla, soft spices, sweet wood, toffee. Malty flavor, good structure, some sweetness, bold hopping, but well blended with the rest; toffee. Bold ending bitterness. Original and interesting.
