3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours clear deep amber, thin off-white head, fantastic lacing. Nose is nice and tart, winter fruits and stonefruits, plenty funky, plus some rye bread and sweet cake, some hops here as well. Flavours are much softer, some real fruit here too, nice winter apples, peaches, plums, soft carbonation, a bit lacking on flavour. Nice but not terribly exciting.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours brown with a nice beige head. Aroma is very yeasty you can really smell the bret. It also has a very malty aroma as well. sweet like toffee. Flavour is very mild. It is funky as it claims. But is a littledull, The toffee flavour is very bold and agreeable, slightly hopy with the bite of bret. This is an interesting brew but I was expecting a lot more.

750 from Wine and Cheese. Caramel dominates the taste. Candy sweet aroma. Iím not sure where the wild is. No wild taste at all. Itís fine, but not a wild ale.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Smells like caramel, apple peel, bread, Quite mild start on the tongue, and dry bitter finish. Not much flavour, but good texture - not too light not too heavy. Quite interesting beer from Mikkeller.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Dark amber. Frothy head. Sweet gingerbread cookie aroma with more sugar than ginger. Flavour at first is quiet and easy to dismiss but then there is a sexy enticing alluring spice that keeps drawing you back to the glass. The bottom half of the bottle is even better than the top; this is not the alcohol talking but the stronger tasty spice. Maybe it is Belgian twins calling through the mist.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.75 L bottle from ōlkonsortiet, Aalborg. A fluffy short lasting blond head, upon a near-clear, amber colored body. Fresh yeasty up front, offset by a scent of toffee, fruity hops, and some mild tartness. Medium-bodied and fairly dry in the mouth. Taste is quity hoppy, citrussy and light resinous. Notes of caramelly malts down below. Warming alcohol throughout. Subtle brett tones. A very good one, but not as funky as expected.

Thanks for sharing Bill. Pours to a deep orange body with a crisp starch white head thatís frothy and foamy with some pretty nice lacing. The aroma is strong with a sweet candi sugar and a light dry silage. The flavor is sweet and has a significant coriander with some light yeast and minty cinnamon. Honey biscuits.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750ml bottle -
Aroma - truck loads of ripe fruit in the aroma, some spicy grapefruit rearing itís head, cut roses and alcohol....strange.
Apperance - reddish golden body, thich white head, lacing was decent
Taste - man, this one seems all over the place...mint, corriander, lime zest, yeast, caramel with a twisting, spicy/yeasty finish. Not sure if I was digging this or not. Kinda different the first 1/2 of the pint, but afterwards...no way I could have finished this bottle myself.
Overall - not sure if this was just an experiment, or if they dumped whatever they had left into the boil but it was just alright. I guess calling it a BSA is as good as anything.
