Medium to full with a creamy texture and a lively carbonation. Finishes lasting dry and fruity with bretts and citrus fruits. Lovely classic from Mikkeller.

Wow, super complex aroma, a bit of Belgian yeast, a light Brett touch, and the wine barrels are all clear. Very drinkable, the time in the wine casks gives a great dry finish, very difficult to detect the 9% abv. Fantastic .

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a deep golden color with a big head and good lace.
The aroma is fruity with plenty of lemon and melon, it’s lightly funky & very inviting.
The flavor tickles my fancy just so, a tart citrus akin to meyer lemons & muskmelon along with a mild bitterness, a very pleasant dry character and a light bit of sour fruit. The alcohol is masterfully concealed and th shop character is dominant but perfectly inter-woven.

750ml c&c bottle from SHIG, I think. Poured an orange/amber body under a large fizzy off-white head. Aroma/flavor, funky, rotting fruit, earth, lemongrass, vinous. Flavor also has some cherry, chardonnay and wet wood. Full body from stronger carbonation that is fizzy and a medium mouthfeel with a nice lingering aftertaste.

Intenso aroma, ácido, igual que su sabor. Su maduración en barrica de vino le confiere un sabor ácido único, difícil de conseguir y que salga una buena cerveza.

Först aprikos-/persikodoft, sedan kraftig kattpiss.
Tendens till disighet. Vackert bärnstens färgad med dragning mot rött.
Smakrik, halm, malt och aning vinjästig smak med saftigt mogen stenfrukt.
Fyllig och rund smak med perfekt kolsyra.
Vinös ananas i den halvtorra eftersmaken.

Bottle. somewhat of a gusher on opening. Pours clear reddish amber with a large white head that mostly dissipates leaving a lot of residual and good lacing. Aroma is initially quite funky, barnyard and horse blanket. After it breathes out some oaky and vinous notes, some fruitiness, passionfruit almost. Flavor is very light sweet, dry indeed, just a light tartness to go with medium funk, medium bitterness and a ton of vinous and oaky notes. There is a tropical note to it as well, presumably from the Nelson hops, although my bottle, being from 2013, has likely seen most of the specific hop character fade with time. There is a certain heat in the finish due to the 9% ABV.
