Cloudy dark amber beer. Dry palate. Frothy in the mouth with sour malt and a little spice. Back end is more spicy malt and aniseed alcohol. Mildly interesting but too dry.

Light hazelnut colour interesting nose. Something floral (tulip or lilac maybe?) & honey med/thin body and mildly fizzy Flavour is very soft. malty, honey primarily w/ a tad bit of an oaky finish. The low end of Mikkeller for me

piscator34 (2312) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 24, 2011
Bottled sample via Savvy1982. Dark gold in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of spicy tropical fruit, and gummy bear candies. Loads of tropical fruit in the mouth as well, along with dry pale malt and some earthy hops. Quite dry and refreshing on the palate. I donít usually enjoy beers that are this tropical fruit forward, but the "brightness" and dryness help to balance things out.

ClubGonzo (5399) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 13, 2011
Bottle @ Henrik, Bergen. Pours a slightly hazy deep amber body with a medium, foamy white head. Nose is port wine, licorice and Belgian ale yeast with a hint of some nondescript funk. (Brett? Not quite, but still...) Taste is smooth licorice and port notes with hints of wood and roasted malts. Nice one.

750ml bottle thanks to savvy1982.
Appearance : Hazy amber with a small head.
Aroma : Spices and sugars with light fruits. Nice candy-ish. Nice sweetness and complexity. Not very powerful probably because of soft carbonation.
Taste : Not very sweet. Some bitterness. A bit astringent. A bit watery. Quite dry. A bit warm on finish. Palate quite flat.
Overall : Nose was much better than taste. Not bad but a bit boring.

theSlipperyPen (248) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2011
A medium to deeper amber pour with a thin diminishing head (from chilled). The nose is a subtle mix of floral hops, orange malts and brettanomyces. All are held together to give off a perfumed aroma. In the mouth one finds all of the nose, again presented subtly and well balanced. Itís dry, no doubt, but thereís enough of a hop presence to give it some fruit, some ruby marmalade and lemon grass; and this makes the beer so very drinkable. As it warms the flavours grow pronounced. However I think itís best served chilled as this keeps the brett toned down, becoming an underscore to everything - perhaps the best use of the wild yeast. The mouth feel is medium, made lighter by the lively carbonation; the alcohol is masterfully worn. The finish develops the marmalade and brettanomyces, ending dry and fresh. Yes thereís nothing extreme about it and yes thereís no one standout aspect but itís such an enjoyable beer to drink; I could have this everyday and never tire of it, and thatís something special. Lovely stuff.
