3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at ØlKonsortiet Christmas tasting Pours a nice amber color with that really dense and good looking head that’s classic for Mikkeller’s beers. The aroma is very hoppy, very citric, lime and grape, lots of orange peel, some malty characteristic. The taste has loads of fruity and citrusy hops, grape, pine apple, nice caramel malt and a bit of wheat too. Nice

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Ok..time for beer 500 to tell me it’s strory. Christmas tale this time. Pours nice hazy amber with big light brown head and lots of lacing. Aroma hits me before I even bring my nose closer to glass. Ipa-like fresh, good aroma has pine, citrus, caramel malt with nuts, hoppy with great malting also. Very nice. Like to take a sniff now and then while tasting this. As it warms the malting rises it’s head. Lively and nuanced. Taste is medium bitter, sweet, medium to full bodied, oily feel, long bitter finish, soft carbonation. Glad I chose to leave this one for my milestone beer. Loved it. Obviously crafted by people who love beer, really enjoyable. Gonna get this for Christmas, recommended.

The flavor follows the nose some spice like clove and coriander sweet citrus fruit hop flavors like orange, tangerine and mandarins along with the sweet malt and light breadiness.
