English: Sampling and rating beers is so much more than just getting on to the next beer. A very important part is going back to your favorite beer and sharing it with friends. I want to thank all my friends that have helped me reach the milestone of 20,000 ratings and given me great insight into the magical world of beer. I wish I could share this beer with all of you, since the beer you have in your hand is my new favorite. I hope you like it as much as I do. Enjoy! Jens Ungstrup

Alengrin (5116) - BELGIUM - SEP 4, 2014
Collaboration brew celebrating Ungstrups 20.000th rating on this very site. Rocky, sticky, stable, off-white head over a pretty old gold coloured beer with vivid sparkling. Lots of leafy hops in the nose, lemon zest, grapefruit, freshly grated ginger, dried apricot, cooked rhubarb, freshly baked bread, tarragon. Dry but refreshing fruitiness in the mouth, citrus touch, soft mouthfeel, nice bready malt sweetness, spicy notes, powerful peppery hop bitterness in the finish reminiscent of an IPA more than a saison, as which this is apparently intended. Not a saison to me but a very tasteful and appetizing beer, in any case.

Idiosynkrasie (7231) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 23, 2013
330ml bottle [BBE 01/02/2012]. I hope this will still do. Hazy bright yellowish golden colour with average to huge, frothy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, white head. complex fruity, floral, herbal and minimally spicy aroma, slightly peppery, hints of mustard, honey, rose petal. Taste is minimally to moderately sweet, slightly tart, minimally bitter hoppy, hints of pineapple, orange zest, bubblegum, a floral touch, some cilantro; sadly some grassy, bitter off-flavours. Very complex, though still mild and very well balanced. Superb!

Boutip (6214) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 16, 2012
Bottle: Poured a hazy dirty beige/orangey color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of rustic malt notes with fruity ester and quite strong notes of paradise grain and light citrus notes. Taste is a complex and intense mix of rustic malt with balanced sweetness level mix in with some fruity ester and light citrus notes with perhaps a touch too much of paradise grain notes. Body is quite full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Well brewed though perhaps a bit too much spice and ester for its own good.

adnielsen (10584) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 26, 2012
Bottle @ Uncle Chris house in Frth. I think I picked this up at De Molen. Its cool to try Ungstrup 20k- cheers, Jens! Glad to have met you during my Danish excursion! Hazy, dark golden appearance with a lively, off-white head. Big orange peel, floral, effervescent, citrusy potpourri, spicy yeasty aroma thats very unique. Tangy, rich floral hoppy, fairly herbal and woody, big chewy orange citrusy, peppery, earthy flavor. Its also fairly spicy with a lot of nuances going on. Cool beer. Congrats 4,350 ratings late, Jens!

TEJA (2940) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 18, 2012
Bottle chaired by omhper, thanks. Lasting off-white head. Clowdy thick yellow color. Fresh but over dry-hopped aroma that gets grassy. Fresh hop taste and fine bitterness. Medium body and a good beer for a summer eavning.

olio (9947) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 22, 2012
Draught @ Gastropub Nordic, Tampere.
Rated on 20110615.
Pours dark copper color with a light head. Aroma of hoppy fruits, some saison-like elements try to come through also, mild soap and some lemony belgian yeast notes. Flavor of fruits, hoppy grass notes and mild malts. Bitter palate. A bit disappointing though.
