Ungstrup (36929) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 15, 2007
Bottled. An unclear dark amber beer with a huge orange head. The aroma is oddly metallic combined with notes of chestnuts, and lighter notes of acidic lemon and dusty hops. The flavor is sweet malty with light notes of caramel, but stronger notes of acidic lemon and oranges, as well as quite strong notes of chestnuts. I m not that fond of chestnut beers.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 18, 2007
(Bottle 75 cl) Very unclear amber golden with a tall, dense off-white head. Extremely lively - it keeps on coming even after most of the bottle has been emptied! Sourish, fruity aroma. Medium body, sweetish malty with fruit and caramel. Very unclean with this underlying tartness throughout. 150207

UPDATED: JUN 12, 2008 Bottled at Monks Caf, Stockholm. Hazy amber, minimal head. Yeasty lemony nose. Fruity and rather thin, acidic and lemony with metal edges and not much else. Accidental lambic?

Travlr (24004) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Draft at 2 Amys. Beautiful clear ruby maroon color, fluffy white head. Aroma of toasted nuts, port wine. Taste is fruity, nutty and sweet. One of the lease offensive chestnut beers Ive had.
Earlier Rating: 1/1/2011 Total Score: 3.1
Draft at Churchkey. Hazy amber color, scant head. Aroma of caramel, subtle nut. Pretty plain caramel taste, very sweet. Sono daccordo con Lorenzo, it needs moore complexity.
