3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours somewhat hazy, pale and lots of foam. Reminds me foamy and freshly pressed apple juice. Aroma is fiercely full of citrus compounds, refreshing and wakes me up. Taste is full of citrus, peels, seeds, juice, you name it, everything is in here. Hop character is not possible to distinguish, blends in with the mikan citric flavours. Dry, tart and long-lasting finish. I was expecting Mikan Ale to be a bit more sweet but it is ore or less dry. Me like it.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A lot of grapefruit in this one. Little sweet but mostly good bitterness. Enyoyable, one of my favorites of the ipa’s at the tasting at De Koffer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Hazy amber with a modest white head. Aroma is all about mandarins in layers: boiled, caramelised peel, flowers, flesh, marmalade. A malty bread underneath it. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation. Just sweet and malty enough to let the array of citrus flavours play. Really invites you in. Dry and seemingly a little woody (pine, cedar, cassia?) at the end. Very good.

Bottle from Cellarbrations Sandy Bay 251115. Looks murky and hazy in the glass. Aroma is a bit light on however the flavour is okay. Not the best Baird beer that I have had. It’s okay though.
