3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Mikkeller and Friends in Reykjavik The ale poured a cloudy amber with an off white head and lacing. The aroma was complex with caramel malts, and grapes. The higher ABV provided a warming feeling that added to the experience. The ale has a medium body with soft carbonation. The finish was dry with no bitterness. Nice ale!!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear, copper body with a small, off-white, fully lasting head. Complex and strong aroma of fruits, including slightly overripe peaches and mango, oak and hints of sourness. Strong flavour of grapefruit, peach and mango, with oak, caramel and funk in the back. Light sweet taste, light sourness and a quite biting bitterness. Medium body, very dry on the palate, lively carbonated. An unusual and complex brew! A fun mix of wild ale and IPA!

Pours amber with small lasting head. aroma of tangy yeast, orange, white grapes, honey, caramel. tastes of candied fruits, caramel, barrel ageing comes right through, then a big hit of hops which i found too much. delicate white wine sourness and sweet fruits got fucked with the bitter hoppiness. disappointing..

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
20cl on-tap at Mikkeller & Friends, Nørrebro, Copenhagen (55 Danish Krone):
This one was a very nice beer from start to finish, I really enjoyed sipping away at it despite the fact it definitely did not seem like a 9% beer when I tried it; I guess a good balance will do that to beers. There was some light bitterness & a few floral hops alongside touches of grapefruit & plenty of grapes that made it a very easy beer to drink & one that seemed quite lively & fresh; definitely one that I’d recommend you try if you get the chance.
