the other comments are not wrong, I guess, but what I got in front of me from tap in the Mikkeller Bar in San Francisco tastes like horse shit. Really fresh one.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 10C. Clear, almost glowing gold with a white head thatís never less than a coat. Bretty aroma with funky lemon, grapefruit, honeyed hay, peach, oak. Not aggressive, but tightly wound rather than inviting. Then sweeter than expected with apricot, hay, honey and the bretty and hoppy notes floating over the top. Finish is dryish with some oak, minerals. Lots of nice things going on, but didnít really cohere for me - perhaps because itís about as wild as a pet rock.

Comparing to the non-BA version here you can also find hints of sweet-honey like aromas and flavours. Somewhere in the background there is also some vanilla aromas. Additionally in this verison you can feel white ripe fruits. Finish is semi-dry and short. In overall this verison gives additional basement and woody accents. In some way it breaks the balanced betweens flavours in non-BA version, but still itís solid and worth trying beer.

UPDATED: MAR 29, 2015 On tap. Medium white head quite lasting. Hazy golden yellow. Hoppy floral aroma. Taste is more complex and dry with quite interesting woody dryness tinge. Quite interesting wheat IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a cloudy golden with a fine off white head. Nose is sweet honeydew melon, lemon, rose, mild horsey funk. vanilla. Flavor is more sweet melon, a little citrus peel, floral notes, honey, a little vanilla and oak, slight hint of acidity on the finish, a bit of grass and hay, maybe a tiny bit of clove or banana esters, but really slight, definite horsey funk. Not particularly sour, but a definitely funky and definite oak character. Not the freshest of bottles, so I suspect a lot of the hop flavor has faded, but still quite lovely. Medium to light body with vibrant and fine carbonation. Iím not sure how anybody can say that Mikkeller only produces gimmicky beers. This is a superbly complex sour beer with lots of balance and no gimmicks. Great stuff.
