3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at Beer Temple, Amsterdam. Pours light golden color with a white head and nice lacing. Aroma of Belgian yeast and spices, nice malt character, and distinct sour notes (maybe from the Lychee?). Sweet and sour. Flavor is similar. Really interesting but tough to describe. I really enjoyed it.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
(375ml bottle @ VilleValla Pub, LinkŲping, Apr 14 2015) Pours hazy deep orange with a moderate off white head and lace. Aroma sweet and funky with brown sugar, stewed fruit, overripe lychee, a little woody, a wet, earthy, barnyard funk. Palate sweet and a bit tart. Caramel and brown sugar, stewed pear and apple, lychee juice, even a little orange juice. Funk builds nicely in the middle, oak and some white wine and grape notes too. Finish is dry and softly bitter, woody, citrus peel, lingering lychee, a bit astringent. Medium full body with effervescent carb. Great beer, really pleasantly surprised me! Not sour, just funky and sweet/dry balanced. Fruit is nice, lychee present but not overpowering. Love it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Medium pale beige head. Hazy brownish red body with strong carbonation. Tropical fruit, strawberry and barnyard aroma with salty cow dung notes. Dry-sweet and faintly acidic barnyard, lychee, and strawberry taste with salty wooden notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, flattish mouthfeel. Dry-salty wooden barnyard and fruit aftertaste with wooden spicy notes. A bit harsh at first, but fantastic when you get further. (0.375l bottle at ōl & BrÝd, Copenhagen.)

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle from 2012. Pours a deep golden amber brown with two inches of bubbly supportive head. The head never faded completely, just stayed at about a centimeter. Great lacing and legs. Aroma is of white wine funkiness, white oak, vegetal earthiness and a floral fruitiness. Taste is dry fruity oak, light grassy funk, and a hint of black pepper. Nice body but itís light on the tongue. Tons of carbonation but it doesnít dance on the tongue. This might be my favorite beer from Mikkeller. Iím not picking up on the lychee much, but that grassy fruitiness is probably just the lychee playing in the background; but iíl liken the fruitiness more to a pear or Ranier cherry than lychee.
