24 fl oz bottle, thanks to Carsten. Pours golden yellow to orange, clear. The white head is gone in an instant and was fizzy. Overspiced aroma or coriander. Flavour is sweet caramel, but completely drowned in coriander heavy notes. Soapy, coriander and somewhat rubber like. Not offensive but a poor imitation of a belgian triple.

Ungstrup (48660) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 12, 2005
An orange beer with a dense beige head. The aroma is sweet with notes of coriander, oranges, caramel, and finally dusty hops. The flavor is strong with alcohol burning the tongue and caramel sticking in the mouth, but also notes of oranges, coriander, and mango.

12 oz. bottle, pours very cloudy golden with a small white head. Aroma of citrus, apples, some exotic spices and of course, Belgian yeast. Flavour has the spices and yeast in front, with some citrus and hop backing. Spicy, mildly bitter finish. Very nice.

Keg at BD Sheps, 09/06/16. Clear golden with a decent off White head. Nose is candied fruit peel, cantaloupe melon, sweet malt, yeast esters, tangerine. Taste comprises light caramel, pinch of white pepper, candyfloss, Belgium yeast esters, tangy citric, light hopping, bubblegum. Medium + body, fine carbonation, light rising alcohol in the close. Solid for style ... never too sweet or cloying ... well worthy of its top 50 style status .... One of a few of this ilk I would happily return to!

8th December 2008.
Hazy gold beer, modest white head. Aromatic with pleasant sweet peach and smooth malt. But this hotly pursued by a little spice and an unpleasant saccharine taste and dryness. Could have been good without the over dryness. Low carbonation. 2.4

1st May 2016
Almost clear gold beer, tidy white head. Palate is light, dry and has decent fine carbonation. Smooth pale malts, little bready. Sweet floralness alongside some spice. Savoury dried fruits. Floralness gets slightly perfumey. Mild honey. Light semi dry finish. Tidy.
