yespr (44807) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - APR 20, 2008
Blind tasting at Papsoes place, another great session, thanks Henrik! Beer #13: Pours orange with a fully diminished off white head. Wineous and woody aroma, light salmiac note. Flavour is sweet, light yeasty and mild spiced. Light sweet and light yeasty finish. This actually works great flavourwise but not in the aroma.

Ungstrup (37309) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 22, 2008
Bottled. An orange-amber beer with a thin orangey head. The aroma is sweet malty with just a touch of oxidation hitting the nose right at first, but then comes more powerful notes of alcohol. The flavor is sweet mlaty with strong notes of alcohol, medium notes of over ripe fruits, as well as light notes of citrusy fruits and oxidation, leading to a dry bitter finish.

joergen (27983) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 20, 2008
Bottle. Hazy orange coloured with a medium sized off white ehad. Sweet and fruity aroma of spices and wood with notes of dried fruits and medicine and oxidated notes. Sweet flavour of fruits and citrus with notes of caramel, dried fruits and wood. Finish of dried fruits.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 25, 2008
(Bottle 75 cl) Courtesy of boboski. Hazy, amber golden with an off-white head. Oxidized aroma with fruit and caramel. Rich in body with sweetish fruit, caramel and some overripe notes. Oxidized, woody accents, some sweet Sherry and a whiff of yeast. Very subdued bitterness. Lovely - this has aged with grace. 190408

Oakes (17274) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 8, 2003
Orangey colour, with small floaties. Aroma of peach, orange, light chocolate malt. Well-constructed malt profile – toast, a little caramel, some background alcohol. Straightforward, but so cleanly put together you can’t help but be impressed by its simple beauty.

argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 24, 2003
Clear orange-brown body with small, quickly dissipating tan head. Aroma is orange, floral, clove. Taste is herbal hoppy, orange, finishing strong alcohol warming. Full body, mildly acidic.

bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - AUG 31, 2004
(750ml Bottle) Pours a lightly cloudy orangish-brown with a small white head. Caramel and malt aroma with some spices. Flavors of hops, sweet caramel, and some fruitiness. Thanks for sharing Patrick!

hopscotch (11049) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 7, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 8, 2003 Re-rate: Maybe my first bottle was a bit "off." Tonights bottle had a pleasant bitterness that wasn't overdone or metallic in nature. A very well-balanced Grand Cru. Original Rating: Sparkling clear copper ale. Small, creamy, off-white head which dissipates quickly, but not entirely. An inviting, thin, creamy fluff of head floats and swirls atop the brew throughout. The aroma is of dark bread dough, clove, overripe apple, banana, peach, etc. An array of fruity yeast and rich malt aromas. Alcohol is present in the aroma as well. The flavor is malty and sweet, but bittered for balance. A medley of fruity and malty flavors. Very astringent. Almost too bitter for the style. A bit metallic. The alcohol is decently hidden. Full-bodied with a heavy, oily mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Lengthy, BITTER, alcoholic, astringent, BITTER finish! Too bitter... or maybe the wrong kind of bitter! Aluminum can bitter? I will have to try this brew again to make sure I didn't get my hands on a bottle that was a bit "off." As I work my way through the large bottle and the beer warms, the bitterness becomes less cloying... or maybe it becomes less cloying as I warm! I better just try this brew again to be safe.

j12601 (10979) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 16, 2010
Bottle of the 2003, shared by Paul at the Blind Tiger’s Victory event. Pours a hazed almost clear orange amber with a medium to large beige head. Sweet caramel, candy, cough syrup, fruit, and oxidization like crazy. Creamy, more oxidized fruit, malt, old caramel. More oxidization and age, old malt. Interesting, but it’s peak seems long in the past.
