Unde (579) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 18, 2015
Brownish really hazy looks with nice big head and lots of lacing. Aroma is really awesome! There is white wine, green apples, vanilla, earthy notes and sourness and yeast. Taste has sour apples, white wine and because of the yeast really malty and cookie-flavours. A lot of yeast in the taste. Pretty full body and high carbonation. Excellent aroma but sadly the taste wasn’t on par with it.

"Some of the hate that spewed from my mouth when I first opened the beer leveled off. It opened up well. Something akin to a geueze. Kinda. You know what, though? At over $1 per ounce, I do NOT want to smell effing skunk when I open a bottle. Under the skunk, some pleasant lemony tartness, baryard character and a little grape and olive came out. But there was still skunk. In the flavor too. Tart skunk maybe, but still skunk. Can’t see why this is a 96 on RB. I love Mikkeller. They have far more hits than misses, but (especially at the price point) this was a miss for me. Feel fit the style (a little thin and slightly overcarbonated), clear golden yellow, big head, a little floral too. Just not good enough..."

(Bottle) Golden yellow colour, slightly hazy, with frothy white head. Fruity nose with citrus, peaches, spicy yeast and a gentle white wine sourness. Fruity, spicy taste with notes of citrus, lemon peel, peaches, unripe green grapes, spicy yeast, a touch of oak wood and a slight white wine sourness in a finish with a light alcohol glow. Almost full body, with a certain sweetness. Interesting, really tasty and quite refreshing. Very nice.
