Idiosynkrasie (4085) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - NOV 27, 2012
330ml bottle. Clear dark golden colour with huge, frothy, lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Hoppy, piney, resinous aroma with a touch of honey, herbs, coniferes, hints of soapy ginger. Taste is dry, soapy, grassy hoppy, cautious piney undertones; minimally biting in between, dry hoppy in the finish.

fiulijn (15217) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 27, 2012
Draught at Ølbaren, Copenhagen
Hazy golden color, small creamy head. Aroma of fruity hops, creamy, light tomato too; some oranges and cheese. Good body strength; the mouthfeel is smooth; toffee flavor, a bit buttery and fruity, with a creamy impression; strong hopping, with plenty of hop oils and fruits.
Too candyish, but good overall.

rarbring (1531) - Linköping, SWEDEN - NOV 25, 2012
Aroma: Smelling of pine-apple, almost overpowering grape-fruit, pine and soap.
Appearance: A foggy amber colored beer. A warm off-white head with good lacing and good curtains.
Taste: Tasting sweet toffee and bread, grape-fruit marmalade and grape-fruit peel.
Palate: Medium carbonation, a coarse texture. A big body with a not dry finish.
Overall: Powerful, somewhat overly spicy, a citric bomb.
Note: On-tap at a De Klomp tasting. Reviewed 2012-11-24.

VertBaconStrips (2097) - Assat, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 18, 2012
On the road to 2000 - will end it there me thinks. Good citrusy tropical scents, lemon and powder, ginger and pine, very nice. A bit over carbonated at times, pine taste is muted at first, bitterness is not all that pleasant, lemon, ginger, grainy a bit, tropical, not all that excited about this. Too much carbonation and the aftertaste is less than stellar. Gonna agree with presario on the value of many Mikkeller beers even tho I love them overall.
