SlackerMads (1419) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2013 Bottle. A bit hazy copper orange with a thick frothy nicely lacing white head. Aroma is brett; damp hay, grass, horse, pepper with some fresh hops underneath; lime, pine. Taste is medium sweet, medium bitter, light sour, medium+ body, texture starts off watery but shifts to oily, medium+ carbonation. Finish has some dry lemon bitterness and brett in the nose. Bottle emptied quickly as always with Anchorage.

beerophilia (1) - Washington, USA - JAN 28, 2013 does not count
750ml cork-finished bottle, served in a tulip. Pours a hazy copper-orange beneath a billowy, short-lived head. Little to no lacing. When I popped the cork, a genie-like cloud of lemon, pine, and band-aid aromas burst forth from the bottle. Once poured, a honeyish sweetness and a touch of grapefruit joined the party. First taste was tart, juicy lemon with a hint of apricot, a touch of malty sweetness, and substantial brett funk. As the beer warmed, the brett mellowed and melded more into a backbone of sweet grains and fruit flavors: peach, mango, more lemon, tangerine, and grapefruit. I took about an hour to sip my tulip, and the more the beer developed, the more I liked it. I felt this was a nearly perfect blend of sweet/funky/bitter. At first, a generous carbonation drove this beer a bit roughly over my tongue. As I sipped and the bubbles escaped, the mouthfeel became a bit smoother, and I wouldn’t say either was better than the other – I liked it both ways. Overall, I found this beer to be delicious. In fact, I called it my “first best” beer of 2013. It’s complex and flavorful, and in my opinion, comes together well. Strongly recommended to folks who like a healthy dose of brett in their beer. 1/1

mrhoppy (1284) - Santa Clara, California, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Yikes! I don’t like this. Grapefruit juice poured in a Double IPA is what is like. No sweetness at all. None zip nada nix nine no. No Farmhouse here.Unless your talking about a Hop Farm? If you think of it as a sour beer it is more tollerable. Grapefruit rind from beginning to end. I hadn’t had a Mikkeller beer in a while and this beer reminds me of why. I may never have another one. $13 Don’t waste your money like I did. Frikkin’ Mikkeller! ! ! !

Botlle from Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours reddish copper with a huge off-white head and a citrus aroma. There is a bitter caramel malt flavor with a slightly sour finish. Almost tastes like Belgian yeast was used, even though they used brett.
