3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy copper color with orange highlights and a medium white head. Very nice aroma of brettanomyces, wood and spices. Solid flavor of spices, yeast, brettanomyces and wood. The body is medium with a creamy, slightly oily texture and moderate carbonation. This is very good, the wood might be just a bit too much for my taste, but it’s better integrated than some other barrel aged beers, nicely done!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle. Hazy amber colour, thick and creamy off-white head. The aroma is sweetish, with a variety of fruit elements, bretta, and floral hops. Dryish malty, fruity and spicy flavour. Aromatic and bitter finish. The carbonation is a little bland, at least in this bottle. Very tasty.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Reddish orange pour. Big off-white head that leaves plenty of lacing as it slowly dies down. A slightly soured orange and cherry aroma. Some blackberries. Funk, but slight. Very soft sweet and fruity flavor. A slight tannin presence. Thin, but sweet and refreshing. Not too bad, but I don’t think I would call it a sour. More of a blonde beer with some color and a slight Brett presence.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
15-DEC-2011, bottle @home, from "Ølbutikken".
A gusher. Pours on the kitchen table and in the sink.
Huge off-white head on slightly hazy orange body.
Nose is apples, apricot, yeast, grape fruit, and funky brett.
Taste equally complex and even more bretty.
Vinouos and tart with some sweetness, A little thin bodied. Really delicious.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle pours a pale golden color with a bubbly white head that settles quickly leaving little lacing on the glass. Aroma is quite fruity with yeast and some hops. Taste is light sour fruitiness with some yeast and a light malty sweetness and mild hop bitterness. This is a decent brew, but certainly not among the best Mikkeller has to offer.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Biero. Great beer, cidery aroma, but sweet in the mouth. Aroma of apples, dough, and caramel. Taste is sweet, with only a hint of sourness, and long length. Palate is creamy, and full bodied. Orange, with a creamy head.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
not quite sour, but there’s a bit hiding underneath. there is a specifically vaginal perfume. Really noticeable, and actually very pleasing for being the result of yeast production...anyway, there’s a strawberry-like aroma happening in this beer that is really pleasing. pretty serious hop bitterness on the whole tongue, not just the sides. really nice fruit complexity happening in this- long live the wild yeasts!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
375ml bottle from IPB.
Appearance : Clear amber with big foamy white head. Lots of lacing.
Aroma : Big brett presence with lots of wood. Some tannins with light fruity notes.
Palate : Carbonation quite lively.
Taste : Big brett with lots of wood. Some alcohol with some spices. Finish big brett with lots of wood. Rather dry.
Overall : At first the brett felt a bit too intense and a bit too artificial. Got a bit more balanced with time. Nice wood. A little bit too much alcohol. Quite good but I’m not such a big fan of those brett bombs.
