UPDATED: MAR 19, 2017 75 cL bottle. Pours unclear golden deep orange with a one to two finger thick, off-white and creamy head - slowly collapsing. Fresh floral hops aroma with a light dry brett accent. Flavour is peachy, grapefruit and citrusy. Distinct bitter dryness mixed with a brett dry base. Subdued caramel sweetness. Quite dry yet also refreshing floral finish. Goes fantastic with a light spiced tapas and creamy cheeses. The fresh floral US hops for me gives this beer a distinct lift in drinkability.

75 cl bottle as SASAlive. Pours clear and deep golden orange. Small off white head. Aroma is wooden, brett and dry fruity. Smooth, fruity, wooden and brett. Light sweet, brett and slight bitter finish.

Ungstrup (36878) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 26, 2009
Another Mikkeller beer drunk to celebrate a century, this time my rating number 12,700. Bottled. A dark amber beer with a huge orangey head. The aroma is sweet and very hoppy, the hops lending it notes of spices, fruit, and pine needles, but also notes of malt and alcohol. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of alcohol and hops, the hops lending it notes of lots of pine needles as well as medium notes of spices and citrus fruits, the alcohol gives the beer some very sharp edges. The finish is quite bitter. I find the hop profile a bit harsh. I wonder what age will do this beer, hopefully round the edges of the alcohol, and maybe also make the hops more harmonious.

Bottled. Hazy amber, lively head. Grapefruity hoppy nose. Mid sweet. Fruity with a bit of sweat, funk and hay. Medium bodied with rounded mouthfeel. Grapefruity hops works as a blanket to cover the finer nuances of the beer and creates a long resiny bitterness.

Hazy darkish amber beer. Dry palate with a soft, almost creamy edge. Frothy in the mouth. Rich peppery hops deliver bitterness but not overly aggressive. Slightly aniseedy finish.
