Ungstrup (34318) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 5, 2009
Draft. An amber beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma is sweet with notes of malt and fruit as well as just a hint of acicity. The flavor is sweet and very fruity combined with medium notes of malt and light notes of metal, leading to a tart and lightly alcoholic finish.

To celebrate my 800th Belgium Strong Ale. Draught at Carlsens Kvarter, Odense. Unclear amber with a creamy white head and lacework. Absolutely amazing nose. Lots of toffee and cramel with some yeast and fruits in between. Vinous and sweet. Dry and spicy taste with some metal and iron lying beneath. Nice.

Christian (12884) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 22, 2009
Amber with a big and lasting white head. Malty caramel aroma, with some diacetyl. Sweet malty flavour with diacetyl, and a hint of continental hops. I’m not impressed and would rather have a 5% beer with the same profile, which is not impossible to brew...

thewolf (12078) - Kolding, DENMARK - SEP 7, 2009
Tap @ YNWA, Kolding.
Pours clear golden with a light copper tinge. Nice creamy, staying, off-white head. Aroma has clear liqourice, light cloves, some anise, caramel sweetness, fruity hops, soft yeast. High carbonation, okay but a tad spritzy. Flavour is dry, lots of caramel, light toffee, soft berries and a good note of grassy and piney hops. Dries out my teeth nicely.
