Palme (3943) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 20, 2011
0.75l bottle shared @ Henrik VANō-Bergen session. Pours a semi cloudy orange body with a few black floaters and a near non existing white head. The first aroma that bombarded my nose is dishwashing detergent, yeast and a full load of ripe fruits like banana, melon, peach and pineapple. Medium to full-bodied, texture is smooth, oily and the carbonation is medium. Flavors are yeast, caustic soda, pine and nice warming alcohol. Ends in a longlasting dry and semi-sweet finish. Funky indeed! Happy Easter!

Habanero (3901) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - APR 18, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2012 Draught. Pours hazy amber brown with a largs off-white head with great lacings. Sweet whie nose with grape fruit, honey and spicy notes. Sweet flavour with fruit, honey, grass and notes of yeast. Low carbonation. Medium to full bodied. Nice bitter finish. A very different but also very drinkable brew. ★★★★

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 13, 2011
In short: Sweet apple marmalade and strange wild yeast notes. A failed attempt atÖ something?
How: Bottle 750ml. Consumed relatively fresh, most than 3 years before expiration date!!!
The look: Mostly cloudy dark amber body topped by a long-lasting small off-white head
In long: Nose is really not mostly sweet apple marmalade with notes of caramelized onions with light wild yeast notes. Taste is more of the same. Sweet caramelized apple marmalade, some apricots and peaches. Very sweet. Strange sour green apples notes. The funk (if we can call it funk) here takes the shape of sweat and wet used dish cloth. I really had a sensation of chewing on a dish cloth that was used to wipe a lot of stuff over many days. I donít know what our good friends at Mikkeller were trying to do here, but I canít believe that what I drank is what they had in mind. A really strange ugly mess. I did not finish my bottle, something that have rarely happened with a Mikkeller beer, and I had a lot of their beers. Not a nice way to celebrate Easter. Also Iím not much of a religious person but Iím pretty sure in the bible it says that Jesus had a little too much wine when he asked his disciples to paint eggs when he rises from the dead.

jikvig (269) - NORWAY - APR 1, 2011
A redish brown with a really nice, creamy head. Aroma is funky funk, almost a sausage aroma (spekemor in Norway). Not the biggest nose, but interesting. Some sherry notes on it aswell. Flavour is bigger than the nose, with taste of dried fruit, raisin alitte nutty. Big taste, low bitternes and good lenght. Summary; Very, very interesting, and very good! (1 glass will feel you up)

daje (3782) - NORWAY - MAR 23, 2011
Bottle at Haandverkerstuene. Amber color, small light head. Malty aroma with red wine. Good body. Taste of grain, tropical fruit and alcohol. finish is both sweet and bitter. I think itís a bit too dominated by the alcohol taste.

phaleslu (9254) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 9, 2011
750 ml bottle from Wine and Cheese Place. Pours a cloudy amber color with a small eggshell white head. Aroma of sweet caramel malts, brown sugar, raisins, and some oaky funk. Not nearly as funky/sour as I expected, more sweet and malty. Same holds true for the flavor, with notes of sugar, raisins, pit fruits, booze, and earthy, oaky funk. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a malty mouthfeel. Interesting beer and not what I expected at all.

Sigmund (6484) - Tau, NORWAY - MAR 7, 2011
750 ml "champagne" bottle, courtesy of Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 9.39%. Amber to brown hazy colour, big to moderate white (or slightly off-white) head. Fairly nice moderate aroma, some funky and fruity notes, also notes of dust and damp basement. The flavour is moderately funky and fairly alcoholic, medium bitter hops in the finish. Not bad, but from Mikkeller you expect something better than this.

crossovert (11005) - Illinois, USA - MAR 6, 2011
750ml synthetic corked & caged bottle. Brewed at De Proef. Pours a nice clear reddish/roange/amber/ brown. The head is large, foamy, and slightly off-white. It recedes decently quickly leaving some large spots of nice lacing. There is a lot of caramel in the scent. Also some funk. There are some hops in there too, some nice grassy herbal notes come out of those. The taste is very, very smooth. It has some roasty caramel flavor, a nice semi-bitter hop bite, and a speckle of yeast. This one is obviously pretty fresh and the wild yeast hasnít done its full duty yet. So this one is more of a real belgian strong ale than a wild ale. There is some nice fruit that comes in at the end. The mouthfeel is pretty nice, a bit syrupy though. Overall, it is another ok but not amazing experimental brew form Mikkeller. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 06-07-2010 01:11:09
