3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours clear orange-amber with a lasting and light lacing frothy off-white head. Aroma is coriander, orange, caramel, ripe fruit, grass, citrus and a little phenolic. Taste is near moderate sweet and light bitter. Body is medium, texture is viscous/slick, carbonation is moderate. Finishes sweet with lingering spice. I can’t make much sense of this.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 33 cl. Pours amber in color with a fluffy white head. Sweet fruity notes at first, those small fruity squares-in-a-box. Very light spicyness. Orange peel in taste, cardamum spicyness and a bit of green grass in taste. The fruityness is getting stronger though, but it has got a certain hoppy dry feeling as well. Enjoyed at seashore on a rather warm day. Soft mouthfeel. I do like the cardamum and fruity touch in this one.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden amber color, hazy body, sediment sparsely present. Big head, big bubble, dimishes into a lumpy film. Good lacing. Aroma is quite elegant, with an interesting citrus background; hints of sugar, caramel and vanilla. Body is moderate, carbonation is average to high, alcohol is well masked. Finish is well balanced, but somehow maybe not very remarkable. Taste is caramel, not so yeasty as you may expect from the style.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
For a 9% beer this is surprisingly light.
Pours a slightly golden colour with not a great head.
This is the Danish version of Belgian beer.
Once again Mikkeller does not fail.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330 ml bottle, 2013 version. Not your average abbey tripel, this one is brewed using wheat, coriander, orange peel and oatmeal.
Thin head, golden and almost clear as a lager. Remember this to be more cloudy (2012 version). Sweet citric taste, of orange and honey. Orange peel in the aftertaste. I think this a great beer for warm summer afternoons, and should probably be served cool.

Bottle. Pours a lightly hazy amber, with a very small head. Aroma is sweet of oak and alcohol, as well as kandi and toffee. Full body, and soft carbonation. flavour is sweet with kandi, yeast and some oaky notes. A bit harsh sweetness in the finish, but not enough to ruin the beer.
