2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pretty much the epitome of mikkeller’s beers. A total discombobulation; a train wreck. No focus, no game plan.
"Hey, lets make a new beer"
"ok. What should we do?"
"Lets just throw some of this stuff in, and then add brett!"

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
750mL bottle. Pours a deep translucent amber with a big head. Aroma smells like a mix of herbal hops and sweet clementines and watermelon. Taste is fairly malty, maintaining the citrusy sweetness up until the finish. After a few drinks, I thought it was almost too sweet, but not quite. Then I drank half a glass, and after that it was way too sweet. Finish has some clementine peel and herbs, but then sort of falls apart into a malty mess with what makes me thing of artificial sweetener. Wierd beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml. Pours a very hazy (not sediment) amber orange with medium head the resides quickly. Smell is.... "funky" notes of yeast slight citrus and strong malt smell. Has a strong sweat slightly yeast taste with a spicy sort of hop attack going on in the background. Heavy body and goes down pretty thick but leaves a good sort of aftertaste and finish. Definitely an interesting and delicious beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750mL corked & caged bottle. 16/12/14 on the label. A hazy rust/amber pour with a thick off-white head that leaves chunks of lacing behind. A very subtle aroma of brown sugar, plums, lemons, and some grapefruits. Medium to full-bodied. A bit too medicinal and sweet upfront taste-wise with some caramel and plum qualities. Sour lemons and bittering grapefruits finish things off. Dry at the end. Not very appealing at all. Hmmmmm...I don’t really know what they were going for with this one.
