Big thanks to yespr for this one. The bottle looks good - strange name. The beer in the glass is deep golden, huge head. Starts intense hoppy, sweet notes, also a bit spicy-woody with lemon notes. Finish becomes weaker, almost a bit washy. Not the best Mikkeller beer I think.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle@Home. Grapefruit aroma. Light amber colour, off-white head, fair lace. Neutral start but soon very herbal and very bitter, hints of grapefruit, grass and plastic. Dry mouth feel. Well brewed but over the edge for me.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
75cl bottle from De Molen beer shop. Clear deep orange. Lasting beige head. Aroma of some sour, but also a good Flemish sour too. Love this aroma. Smooth and really drinkable in mouth. The finish maybe is the fall down here. Just doesn’t seem to carry on the good work of the aroma and mouthfeel. Some decent toffee and the mouthfeel is really superb. But as I say, it left me feeling, well not quite in one place or another. Hides the ABV remarkably well

Bottle. Slightly hazy amber pour with a creamy off-white head that lasts. Nose has a slight bit of funk but has lots more including notes of honey, caramel, grapefruit, malt and fruity hops. Flavour is similar with more funkyness and bitterness but is otherwise sweet, malty and a little fruity. Smooth and dry mouthfeel with a reasonably short finish and well hidden alcohol. Overall this is another really good beer from Mikkeller however I couldn’t drink a lot in the one sitting.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
75cl at Hunter’s, Pori. Hazy copper, coarse huge lasting pale head. Mildly American hoppy nose, with dill, yeastiness, kiwi, smurffilimsa when warm, lots of raw berries, mostly gooseberry. Flavor has stuffy yeast, some sugar and dill, herbal hops, little alcohol and pale malts, more of that stuffy yeastiness. Medium to full bodied, further yeasty soft palate. Very uninspired.
