From tap at bir and fud. Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Dry phenolic and malty aroma. Fruity yeasty and phenolic flavoured with a light spice note. Sweet and fruity finish.

Ungstrup (38249) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2010
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a huge off-white head. The aroma has notes of fruit, malt, and straw. The flavor is sweet with notes of phenols, malt, caramel, and straw, leading to a dry phenolic finish.

oh6gdx (26487) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 22, 2008
Bottled. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is sour fruits, sour wood and sweet caramel. Also some alcohol. Flavour is spicy, earthy and caramelly. If sampled in a blindtasting I would probably guess it’s Belgian...

Cloudy amber beer. Soft to semi dry palate. Moderate carbonation. Wheaty malt with some orangey hop that doesn’t bite at all. A little herb bitterness underlying. Finishes soft and dry. Not bad.

Papsoe (25059) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2010
Bottle 75 cl. Pours deep golden with a slight haze and a dense off-white head. Sweet and fruity nose. Medium body, sweet if somewhat skewed fruitiness. Some phenols and alcohol in the finish. 100910

Beautiful light amber color, hazy; medium sized head, although there was a high pressure in the bottle. The aroma is interesting, a bit puckery; there is some malt, light fruitiness, very light herbs and cabbage. Lean body, but round mouthfeel; there is some residual sweetness that makes it pleasant to drink, with light malt flavor and sage; there is also a light fruity touch (peaches). Correct bitterness. Very well balanced and still fresh.

Theydon_Bois (20487) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2012
Tap at Open Baladin, Roma - 02/10/12. Slightly hazy golden with no head. A certain sourness to the nose, sour mango, peach and apricot. Taste follows but the flavours aren’t quite as prominent as the nose. Medium bodied with little carbonation leading to a slightly sour and fruity finish,

Bottle from GBBF 2013 and drunk at home. Is this a Belgian Ale? Yes it is! Wow I guessed a style! One of my favourite games on this site. I drink the beer, decide the style and then see if RB agrees. Fairly generic Belgian Ale, some hop, some esters, some malt, some sweetness. Not very exciting, but utterly fine.
