3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A pretty, dark orange beer with a dense, quite big and beige head. The aroma is nice, lots of tropical fruits, mangos and citrusfruits, also some belgian fruits from the yeast and marsmellows, the end is spicy. Taste is strongly fruitfull, medium bitterness and nice spicyness. Medium bodied, high carbonation that slowly calms down. Very nice beer with complex fruits from two continents combined with nice spicyness. I like this beer.

Fra fad på Mikkeller&Friends: en meget vellykket hybrid som forener det beste av apa og saison i en smooth blanding av beskhet og fruktig syrlighet. Amerikanske humler og belgisk gjær? Tørr avslutning og en myk kropp i en blomstereng.

Hazy amber beer, good pale cream coloured head. Palate is airy and slightly soft, good fine carbonation. Smooth malt, light cream. Lightly bitter pine hops backed by nice mellow tropical fruits, peach and mango led. Little black pepper before a smooth finish. Nice beer!

330ml bottle from Valhalla’s Goat. Hazy reddish amber brown, decent head. Big flowery pine hop aroma. Biscuit pine hop flavour, musty aftertaste. I really like this one.

Bottle - hazy ambe with large white head and propensity to lace. Fresh zesty, hoppy aroma, tropical fruit, honey. Taste is herbal, medicinal, yeasty. Medium bodied. Not bad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ Beer Temple shared with Steve, the Detroit fellow ;) Slightly hazy dark orange color, medium sized off-white head that lasts for a decent while. Aroma has malts, fruityness, yeastyness of a Belgian triple and hops. Taste malts, hops, some fruityness, again that Belgian triple yeast and flavor come through clearly. Very good ’blend’ of those styles. Medium body and carbonation.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Misty reddish body and stable beige head. Interesting sweaty yeast, smooth caramel and fresh bread notes, some cereal. Smooth rich hop mix, herbal, citrus, spruce all in a tasty cocktail. Perhaps not quite as far developed as cool be, but already showing refined yeast layers of taste. High bitterness for the style to match the dark brown bread malty base, making this classic and modern at the same time somehow. It really works, like a bière de garde on a hop diet. Like it! (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

Surprisingly subtle compared with other Mikkeller's I've tried. More of an IPA but with a nice, sweet aftertaste of a Belgium.

33cl bottle from Saveur-biere.com. BB 02/10/15. Deep amber with a thick white head. Sweet tropical fruity aroma, mango, citrus, woody notes. Fresh, inviting aroma. Flavor has tropical fruits, some herbal notes, sweet caramel. Bitter long lingering hoppy finish, also slightly sweet. Slightly too sweet for me though.
