English: Mystikale is a top-fermented red-brown beer inspired by Sottish as well as Danish brewing traditions. Mystikale is brewed with 6 different spices, among others liqourice root and hip shell, which give the beer a complex and intriguing taste. Mystikale goes very well with traditional Danish lunch and spiced poultry dishes.

BMan1113VR (7911) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 13, 2009
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Gusher, but minimal head over a hazy brown body. Wow this stuff smells freaking weird! Aroma of mint, chamomile and berry tea with a bit of anise, woodruff syrup and honey. Taste is sweet with notes of tea, honey and a distinct herbal quality. High carbonation.

MartinT (8736) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 19, 2009
My Bottom Line:
Licorice, cinnamon sticks allusions, tree bark and pomegranate-like fruitiness swim within this well-sculpted spicy brew, ending in a peppery and lightly toasted finale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam tops the cloudy orange-laced russet.
-The relatively low dextrin level is conducive to high drinkability, even though the flavor profile is unusual.
-This went great with shawarma!
-The spiciness is levelled.
-The soft sparkling of tiny bubbles also increases drinkability.
-This is as cleanly brewed as all other Djaevlebryg beers I’ve had.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 4, 2009
In short: An unusual earthy spicy ale. Many seem to like it, to me it is a gross dirty mess.
How: Bottle 500ml. Consumed soon after receiving it through private importation but already close to expiration date
The look: Almost clear dark amber body topped by a small beige head
In long: Nose of dirty wet forest mosses and a whole lot of spices. Taste of dirty cereals, cloves, nutmeg, cloves, lots of tree roots, some almonds, vegetable notes. The overall sensation was that of a spicy forest floor, if such a thing existed. This is a messy and grossly overdone beer. It is tasty and has its own personality (this is not a bland beer) and some will love it. It is not poorly brewed. It’s just a type of recipe that strikes all the wrong notes with me. I could go on an on for hours about what’s wrong with this beer but I won’t, I know better, I hate that when people do that to me.

Sampled at DØE Beerfestival 2009, Valby. Pours an amber/golden beer with an offwhite head. The aroma is spices and sweetness. The flavor is likewise spices and sweetness. The flavor continues to the aftertaste and into the palate. Overall and average beer.

Boutip (5357) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 30, 2009
Bottle: Poured an hazy amber color with a medium size foamy head with good retention and light lacing. Aroma of light sweet malt with some weird spices mix that does work well together. Taste is dominated by a huge malt backbone with great notes of spices and ester. Definitely not common but interesting take with that spice mix. Body is full with limited filtration and creamy texture with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol.

Aroma is interesting, very vegetable, most notably carrots. Flavor is not as nice as the aroma. More vegetables. Not my kind of style.
