3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Visual: White foil covering a corked top. The label is pretty basic with simple artwork and the ingredients listed in Danish. Pours very cloudy dirty brown-orange with tons of activity, a nice lasting small ultra-creamy head, sticky lacing.
Nose: Floral honeyed citrus malts, cane/brown sugar. (6/10-pungency)
Attack: sweet-creamy-smooth-crisp mouthfeel
Mid-palate: (8/10)-sweetness, (MAIN) honey, caramel malts, chamomile
Finish: lingering honey-sweetness, light hoppy bitter finish.
Summary: A very nice Belgian-style tripel out of Denmark. The first sip surprised me with its incredible smoothness and texture. Halfway through the sweetness gets heavy.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
In short: A pale golden belgian ale dominated by sugary honey and woodsy vinous flavors. Meh.
How: Bottle 375ml corked & caged, consumed with some age on it but still 4 years before expiration date.
The look: Medium cloudy pale golden body topped by a persistent small off-white head.
In long: Nose is heavy on woodsy honey (very much reminiscent of linden honey) along with a sensation of smelling a bouquet of flowers in a dusty attic, also light woody white wine notes. Taste is coarse grainy cereals, wood, linden honey, white wine, mild spicy-herbal notes, dusty yeast. Plenty of sweetness that feels a bit like old honey turning into sugars. A beer that throws many things at you but at the end it is the sugary honey and woody vinous notes that dominate and this makes for a beer that is far from easy to drink, the type of blend of flavors that I quickly grew tired of before I even finished a small 375ml. Not sure who Mielcke & Hurtigkarl are but I’m not ruling out they are a couple with a son named Fgiktoqbyxtu.

1.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
New batch - I Loves the old hurtigkerlnwith its light fruity flavors with notes of the Sauterne in a fresh sparkly beverage. This new battle pours light brownish and has an off note in the aroma. The palette is bitter and also with an off note and lacks the Sauterne notes of the predecessor.
This is NOT the same beer and it is not good!!!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 375ml corked. It’s an unclear, orange beer with a small, white head. Cellar and some fruityness and piney hints on the nose. Some white sugar and a vinous touch too. Pleasant flavor with bitterness, lots of wood, as well as cellar and pine cones. Some tropical fruits and a little hint of white sugar too. Medium body, semi-dry and pleasantly carbonated. Some warmth on the palate, nice carbonation level and dry. Lasting finish. Not really sure about this one. It’s good indeed, but probably a tad too woody. Wouldn’t mind drinking more of it though. 131026
