4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Hazy red amber with a small whitte head. Extremely elegant and complex aroma, though still very subdued. Raspberry, fine wine, oak, and a little funk. Tart and fruity flavour of raspberry, red wine and oak barrel. Extremely expensive, but almost worth the price...

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
375 ml bottle... Waaauw!! Light pinkish red amber beerwith a pink white head - nice and bubbly. The aroma is magnificent: raspberries indeed (sweet aroma due to Sauternes?), fresh grapefruit, freshly squized, vanilla, elderberry & flower, strawberry. Medium body but then immediate tartness and bitterness. Fruity raspberry tartness coming back... Again, one of the best Mikkeller beers I have tasted. Same AHA erlebnis as with the Nelson Sauvin. This is art!
