jamestulloch (1050) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 10, 2013
Aroma: Grass, Earl Grey tea and lemon.

Appearance: Slightly hazy golden body with a thin white head. Average carbonation. Very light lacing marks.

Taste: Lime, bitter (almost sour) green apple and a hint of white pepper in the finish.

Palate: Thin to medium body with a watery, slightly oily texture. Prickly carbonation.

Overall: Quite light for a Belgian Ale. I was hoping for a surprise with this beer but at best itís subtle, at worst itís just dull. The worst Mikkeller beer Iíve tried.

May 2013 - Cold bottle. Clear yellow sparkling with enduring white head. Spicy lemon smell. Taste is medicinal lemon, spice, some subtle fruit esters. Fresh and refreshing, but nothing too exciting. 3.6

RasmusOtt (964) - Aalborg, DENMARK - MAY 22, 2013
Pours clear amber with a white fluffy head. Aroma gentle hops, weak dry brett, some corn/grains, bread malts and some rural notes here and there from the brett. Taste has some fresh hops up front. Rather thin body and a nice dryness from the brett. weak tart, orange peel, bread and some spices as well. Refreshing!

Whole Foods, Bowery 33cl ($5): Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow with a white head. Aroma is musty, musky, yeasty, with a slight vinegarish tinge. Taste is sour, but also has something farmhouse funky on top of that. Dry. With a slight sour aftertaste continuing. Not bad.

Bottle. Yellow cloudy. Nose has a bit bready malts, continental hops, light horsy funk. Body is light, dry. Well hopped. Barnyard, funk and a palate cleansing finish. Quite light body-wise, but good nontheless.
