4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
75 cl bottle. BBE 16.10.2022.
Pours clear copper-mahogany color with a large white head. First thing on the nose is brettanomyces, some sourish apricot and rose hip. Yeast, spices and wooden notes follow, with faint vinous notes on the background.
Flavor is also sour with apricot and some grape fruit, the yeast, faint spices, grass and goose berries sum up to a quite dry palate. More and more little nyances are found from the aroma and flavor as the beer warms up a bit, but still the balance holds strong. I had my doubts about this but I have to say this is an excellent brew, a bit too expensive though.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a mostly clear dark golden. Aromas are noticeable as soon as bottle is open. Some vegetal notes, cut grass, honey, and some brett funk, horsey pasture. Flavors are equally complex with well-balanced sweetness up front and well-hidden. Palate is very active and lush. Overall a nice complex offering from mikkeller.

Clear golden orange with a tint of red. Large, frothy head. Aroma of red berries, grapes and wood. Hints of barnyard and tartness. Taste is grapefruity fruity grapeish.. A little sweet at first, bitter then dry. Mouthfeel is light and fizzy. One of the best beers I’ve had.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
2013-08-23. Crisp orange amber body with a nice frothy off white head. 3++ Aroma is quite pleasant with lots of fruity hops, lightly minerally, pleasant lemon-lime like notes. 8++ Flavour is relatively bitter, lots of citrusy hops in the lemon and lime vein as in the aroma. Smooth average bodied palate, pleasant effervescent carbonation. The hop profile is quite unique and rather lovely. Zippy and very drinkable. Bottle from Hill Farmstead, Vermont.
