MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2011
A Mes rate. Keg at the Cask.A Mikkeller soured beer rarely (never) let’s me down. This is no different. Not the best smelling beer I have had from Mikkeller but as soon as this magic elixir hits my tongue, all that is forgotten. Big fruity barrelly sourness abounds and dizzys the brain for a few seconds after each sip. So bright and exciting for a beer with this reasonably high an abv. Funky yet thoroughly approachable. Superb finish with considerable length. Not something I should probably start the day with but when the boss demands you have a free half... Well, why the funk not? Excellent stuff.

Ungstrup (30390) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2011
Bottled. A hazy dark red beer with a lazing tan head. The aroma has notes of malt, alcohol, brettanomyces, caramel, and a bit of wood. The flavor is sweet with notes of alcohol, brettanomyces, wood, grapes, and caramel, leading to a tart finish. Thanks pinball for sharing.

Medium body, sweet woody fruitiness, minerals, overripe swwet fruits "noble rot", some Sherry. No real bitterness but a slight Bretty tartness. Very sophisticated, very pleasant. 130711

Koelschtrinker (12655) - 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
