Koelschtrinker (9998) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 3, 2011
Säuerlich-malziger Antrunk mit wenig Süße. Die Malzigkeit ist dabei trocken und spielt der Säuerlichkeit zu. Es ist weniger Abwechslung als bei dem Ausgangsbier gegeben, daher wirkt es für Mikkeller Verhältnisse in Teilen eindimensional. Trocken-malzig-säuerliches Finish. /10/11/11//11

yngwie (12722) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 20, 2011
Bottle, 375ml, courtesy of meilby. It pours an unclear, dark ruby to brown body and a dense, finger-thick off-white to beige head. Oaked, red wine-ish, brett-aroma with dried fruits, dark berry notes, some alcohol and a touch of white sugar. Quite complex. It has a good warmth in the mouth, it’s full-bodied and pleasantly carbonated. A touch of metal in the far end. The brett and barrels sure win the flavor combat, there’s not much left of the original beer, except for the alcohol. Even though it’s quite dry, there’s a good dash of residual sweetness to be found. Sort of peppery too in the very end. Well, this one’s a clash of worlds, but it’s also a damn fine one, in a way combining the red sour beers of Flandern with the sweet quadrupels the monks brew. Lovely, but demanding. 110420
