Bottle 330ml. @ home.

Clear sparkling, medium amber orange color with a huge huge, frothy, goodlacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, spicy !! sour milk tart citrus, artificial raspberry notes. Flavor is moderate sweet and light bitter with a long to average duration, sour milk, fruity - berries, roasted - chocolate bitter, milk - citrus - lemon tart sour. Body is light to medium, texture is watery, carbonation is soft. IMO slightly infected, but again was okay to drink even did get better the more i did drink ! [20110112]

75 cL bottle. Pours hazy orange (amber? - no way) and with a slowly collapsing white head. Spiced and light citric yeast aroma. Flavour is light orange to berry fruity and mild yeasty, shows a light spice note to a mild citric base. Could be slightly infected, then again - I was warned about a strange yeast used. Ends with a mild fruity yeast lingering finish. Certainly strange but also drinkable.

Ungstrup (38238) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 4, 2007
A hazy deep amber beer with a rim of off-white head. The aroma is sweet with light notes of berries - the aroma is too weak for my liking. The flavor is sweet with primary notes of berries, leading to a dry bitter end. The body is thin.

Beerhunter111 (22214) - P´Castle, GERMANY - APR 15, 2014
Extremes Gushing beim Öffnen, ins Glas ergießt sich ein sehr trübes orangebraunes Bier mit sehr viel Schaum. Geruch fruchtig würzig, Karamell. Geschmack röstmalzig, schokoladig, leicht fruchtig, etwas herb, leicht würzig.
