bluebetty (1019) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 20, 2012
Bottle. Pours a murky light bronze with smallish cream coloured head. Falls away very quickly to all but the smallist film. Aromas of earthy bready malt, oak, orange juice, white wine and some acidity. Enjoy this. Flavours are quite white wine like. Slightly harsh acidity and dry finish. thin to medium mouthfeel. Quite like this.

Rune (9072) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 17, 2012
375ml dark green bottle, 8% abv., with a silver neck, bought at Ølbutikken. Noisy pour revealing a close to clear amber coloured body, hazy last pour. Beige head with fine retention, rings of lacing to the glass. Aromatics with dry and tart fruits. Blended flavour of mild tart and sweet fruits. Rounded tartness to the ending. Very dry in the mouth. Vinous impression. Different and quite refreshing (hotel room, Copenhagen 09.05.2012).

Mortlach (1138) - Rome, ITALY - MAY 16, 2012
05/01/2012 Brasserie 4:20 (375ml bottle). Bevuta al Mikkeller Beer Festival. Ambrata chiara, intensa e brillante, con schiuma bianco sporca dai riflessi giallognoli, non molto persistente. Al naso è magnifica, sembra un vino bianco, acidula, delicata, leggermente fruttata. In bocca parte come un diesel, risultando un po’ debole di corpo, corta, leggermente acquosa, ma mantiene comunque una certa finezza e migliora tantissimo sorso dopo sorso. Corpo medio-basso, carbonazione soft. Sorprendente.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 12, 2012
37,5 cl Bottle@ home. Dark amber to light brown coloured beer with lots of carbonation and a medium but diminishing off white head. Sour and nicely fruity infused aroma. Full palate. Finish is sour sweet and fruity balanced with some spicy slight alcoholic hints. Not bad.

PhillyCraft (3783) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 10, 2012
On Tap last year, I have tried this out of the bottle and now on tap, and I still get the same weak tasting notes from it. Dark, boring amber pour, minimal head, not much lacing, aromas of coffee, oak, lavender, taste is filled with weird nutty flavors, wood, stale or non-existant brett. Very Flat. This is def not mikkellers best showing and I found myself not being able to finish a 12 oz glass.

Pours dark amber with a beige head. Aroma is caramel, brett, white wine and light oak. Flavour is malt, brett, oak, white wine and light barnyard. Fresh.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - MAY 6, 2012
Pours a hazy and copper beer with a white head. The aroma is malt, fruit, brett, white wine and wood. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is dry with sweetness. Overall a really good beer.
