"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. Cloudy golden body with a huge white head. Aroma of green apples, oak, white wine and caramel. Taste of vanilla, white wine, soap bar and toffee. Aftertaste of apples and grass with a alcholoic vineous touch. Didn’t work very good for me.

Vells (743) - Riga, LATVIA - JUL 22, 2014
Quite fancy brew. Strong malty background with intense crisp fruitiness, awesome grape touch, vanilla, light yeasty, light woody, decent hops for balance. Moderate sweet with some bitterness. Quite dry Despite of quite complex character, very easy drinkable and enjoyable.

SlackerMads (1681) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2014
Bottle. Clear copper with a huge creamy off white head, nicely lacing and good retention. Barnyard, grapes, apples, dusty, light pepper, wood. A bit high carbonation, soft and filling mouth feel, medium body. Has some sweetness to it and not much bitterness, but the finsh is kind of neutral with some bretty dryness and barnyard notes. Good stuff.
