Aquilo (556) - Berkeley, California, USA - FEB 13, 2011
Cloudy golden color with a perfect tan head. Aroma is fruity and hoppy, with pears, pine, and some yeast. Very well balanced subtle flavor. Mildly bitter, slightly sour, and slightly sweet. Velvety mouthfeel is very thirst quenching.

RichardW (1541) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2011
750 ml bottle, cavedirect. Having had the US Alivde jusy before, I was maybe expecting a stronger version of that, but this was quite a turn up. Verging on the lambic side, faintly sour, doesn’t have a lot of body, but very tasty, with a hint, and I mean of hint, of TCP in the, far-off, background

Christian (11260) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 9, 2011
Amber with a lasting off-white head, leaving lace. Finer bubbles and longer lasting than Orval, actually. The lovely brett funk aroma, appears to have more fruity notes, dare I say wine-like? Also a faint musty cellar note, but nothing harmful. The real surprise is in the mouth. It’s dry and funky with leather and grapefruit notes, has a bit of malt and a bitter finish. But it also has that fruitiness and a vanilla sweetness, almost creamy. The only thing holding it back from a 10 for taste and 5 for palate is alcohol heat, unfortunately.

brinehart (212) - Colorado, USA - FEB 5, 2011
On Tap at Max’s in Baltimore. Deep amber color. Clear with no head. Sour apple nose. Sour cherry taste. This beer is unique in that it has some good hop character. The citrus hops work really well with the lactic sourness. The most unique sour beer I have had. The finish could use a little more sweetness to provide balance.

37.5 cL bottle, courtesy of Ungstrup. Pours hazy dark orange with a small white head. Aroma is citrusy, hoppy, wineous and horseblanket. Medium sweet, fruity, barnyard and hoppy to citrusy/orange fruity flavoured. Smooth brett and fruity flavoured into the finish. Ultra soft and smooth brett-fruity lasting finish. Stunning - Orval on speed!

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 27, 2011
Appearance: hazy straw. White head fades to a thin and decent collar marked by scattered bubbles. Swirls thick along the edges but nothing in the middle.
Nose: whoa; reaches out to me from the glass to where I am sitting. Sour and funked, but differently than a Lambic. Leather, saddlebags, dry husked straw and sour lemon drops. White grapefruit pith. Must and an overall essence of standing in an old and worn barn. Granny smith apples.
Palate: very light in the body and mouthfeel; super clean with little to no attenuation or residual sugars. Softest up front. Long dry hay stalk finish. Sour lemon drops and lemon ice, all natural no sugars added. Musty and musky in the middle into the back; leather and barnyard. Granny smith apples meet the juicer for a thin crisp tartness which nibbles along the sides of my mouth. Flavors mingle well together.
Final Thoughts: Mikkeller could very well end up being one of the great brewing geniuses of our time. He brews a lot and everywhere and manages to do it well each and every time. A living classic.
