4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Ridiculous beer. As in ridiculously good. Pours like a champagne, but is a burnt orange colour. Rapidly dimishing head. Bready, sour, sweet aroma. Taste is nelson, then sour, then sweet grape. Is this a beer?
Finish is bitter sweet.
I’ve had nothing like this before. Could almost be a dessert wine. I’m not a fan of Austrian or German wines, but this is just spot on. Would live them to do the same beer, but with dry New Zealand barrels.
Totally out there.

@ S.Brevinga Alus Salons. Very interesting beer. First, pleasant aroma of Nelson Sauvin, but you can’t feel a lot of hops in taste as well as 9ABV of alcohol, nice sourness and wine notes.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike.
The beer is a honey orange color and has a thick, fizzy white head. Lasting retention and the tulip glass is coated with lacing. The aroma brings floral and vegetable notes, reminiscent of Cantillon Mamouche. Green peppers, plants, very vegetal. Medium bodied with plenty of carbonation. Hops emerge in the finish. Complex and intriguing, this is enjoyable in small quantities.

Sample at ÖÖWF 2012. Sweet and fruity smell with white wine, hops and gooseberries. Similar taste. Light sourness that balances out with the sweetness. Interesting beer.

750 ml. Hazy copper with a most annoying five inch head. Aroma is sour leather, vinegar, blackberry, and earthy honey. Taste is flowery honey, sour grapes, oak and toffee. Long finish has some wheat and bubblegum. Medium body is smoothly carbonated and well balanced. Well crafted, as always from Mikkeller, very smooth and nicely sweet and sour.
