4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2013 11.2oz bottle. Unfiltered thick orange-tan body. After the initial gush, maintains a thin white head, Quite an enjoyable sour. Dry biscuity mouthfeel. Tropical sour flavors, pronounced Brett. Peppery noble hops. Displays a great balance and drinkability that most US sours lack. I would drink this beer every day. Really nails it. Some variation in bottles for sure.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - under the "Itís Alright" moniker. Hazy golden amber with a short, foamy white head. Could swear I smelled pickles upon first whiff. And hints of funky cheese??? Thereís also plentiful yeast, earthy notes, sour fruit and flowers. Taste is funky yeast notes, bold earthiness, musty basement, tart fruit, soft grains, dried flowers and horseblanket. Body is light and lively with a soft carbonation. Ends with more bountiful notes of funky yeast, damp earthiness, horseblanket, tart fruit, soft grains and floral notes.

Light farmhouse Belgian. Nice hay and some bitterness at finish. Pours golden blond. Some lacing, no head. Light palate ok but a little light on palate. Touch of sourness as well. Some soda water - pretty high fizzy carbonation. Tasting at volos. Thanks to Radek.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sour and yeasty nose with a sparkling dryness to the head with a mild yellow murk of a body. Breezy lemon pine initial taste, brightening with the carbonation and a mild hop rise. Tough to feel around the sourness with it being so cold, disappointing brett punch, but you can feel your way around the hop profile fairly quickly. Dry and sweet Brett finish light Refresher bar dust is a really nice touch, but perhaps the only standout aspect.
This is the Mikkeller Iíd give my mum to drink. Intentionally unbold and unbrave, but a refreshing tickle all the same. Iíve not had one in some time, not exactly fireworks in the glass. Reasonably priced for what you get mind.
