Ungstrup (35688) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 27, 2013
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of wood, bettanomyces, malt, caramel, grapes, and barnyard. The flavor is sweet with funky notes of brettanomyces, malt, wood, grapes, caramel, alcohol, and barnyard, leading to a dry finish.

haukur (1848) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - JAN 27, 2013
One of the more finer beers that I have ever sampled. Good vinegary aroma, some barn, dust and big apple profile. Coppar with a small head, almost like Orval looking. Taste is all brett, vinegar, oak, hops. Fantastic palate. Long finish. Awesome brew!

UPDATED: MAR 7, 2015 750 bottle in a snifter. Pours golden with a lacy head. Aroma of the wine, some floral and lightly citrus hops, and caramel malts. Flavor the same. Average texture. A good beer for the style. Bottle purchased at HF in 2015. Tastes better than I remember.

Sample at Jungle Jims Barrel Aged Tasting, from a bottle. Clear golden orange color. Little white head. Decent lace. Nice citrusy brett nose. Good soft carbonation. Medium body. More dry texture, light belgian funk. Citrus hops. Good zesty, sweet taste. Hint of baked apple. Very tasty.

UPDATED: JAN 21, 2013 Bottle @ Il pretesto. It pours golden orange with a tiny white head on top. Very fruity with orange hints... and then there it is the sour! But never covering the global complexity. A great beer!!

Bottle (750 ml). Hazy orange with a huge creamy/foamy mostly lasting off-white head and intense lacing. Aroma is winey with brettanomyces, wood, grape, fruits, belgian yeast and hops. Taste is also winey with fruits, brett, grapes, wood, malt and slight sourness. Slight bitterness. Mouthfeel is smooth and winey. Alcohol is completely hidden. This beer is fresh, complex, drinkable and truly enjoyable! Awesome beer!
