Plovmand (7713) - Helsinge, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2009
Bottle. Hazy golden body with a huge froth white head. Lovely piney aroma with lots of grass, grapefruit, exotic fruit like passion fruit and peach. Medium bodied. Sweet malty flavour with lots of pine. Caramel, more exotic fruit, pepper, grass and flowers. It ends up very bitter like grapefruit. Very dry.

Svesse (7698) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JAN 30, 2014
(Bottle) Hazy amber colour with lasting, dense, off-white head. Fruity, malty nose with notes of dried fruit, citrus, orange peel, gooseberries and earthy hops. Malty, fruity taste with orange peel, rye bread, dried fruit, apricots, gooseberries, hints of burnt rubber and a generous earthy, citric bitterness in a finish with a slight alcohol glow. Almost full body, with a certain sweetness. Tasty and quite well balanced for its strength. Very nice. (Best before date was 18 Jan 2011, but it felt quite fresh and still highly drinkable.)

lusikka (7649) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 5, 2010
330 ml bottle @ Olutravintola Pikkulintu. Rated @ 6.3.2010.
Hazy amber colour with a strong off-white head. Nice lacing on the glass. Fruits, citrus and spices on the nose - very DIPA-like. Flavour is floral hops, citrus, caramel, grapefruit and malts. Full bodied with an oily texture and a nice balance. Very good.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 24, 2010
On tap at Ørsted Ølbar 8/29/09: Pours a transparent copper orange with a thin wispy-lacing white head. Aroma of sweet caramely malt with a citrusy orange and grapefruity hoppy nose. Starts with good rich caramel malty fullness and lots of sweet juicy rapefruity hops before a full bittersweet finish. A pretty well-balanced and enjoyable IIPA.

KnutAlbert (6621) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 4, 2009
Refreshing, light, piney. Very nice crisp bitter rfinish. For anyone esle this would be a milestone, for Mikkeller this is another fine beer without being in their top 10.

ekstedt (6382) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 29, 2009
Bottle (33 cl) from Ölbutikken, Copenhagen, Denmark. Hazy deep golden, medium white head. Fruity, aromatic aroma, clearly brewed with belgian yeast, with notes of tropical fruits. Medium bodied and smooth. Very refreshing, dry with a kind of gentle bitterness, surprisingly for a Mikkeller brew.

Borresteijn (6186) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 3, 2010
Sample at Beer Temple, obtained from Glouglouburp, thanks Dany! Cloudy amber orange colour, white head. Aroma of thick sweet malts, yeast, floral and fruity hops. Flavour is sweet, very malty, a bit wort-like, fruity, strong and lingering piny hoppy finish. Medium to fullbodied. Too sweet imo.
