Maria (10176) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAR 6, 2011
Itís hazy, orange-golden with a huge, creamy, golden and lasting head. The aroma has notes of fruit, mostly peach and citrus. The flavour has a light sweetness, a refreshing bitterness and notes of fruits like peach, melon, a little oranges and other citrus, and the finish is slightly spicy and dry. The balance is very nice, in the delicious beer. I was fortunate enough to share the 1Ĺ liters with only one other person :)

BeerandBlues2 (10081) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - NOV 21, 2011
Tap. Pours hazy ruby with a medium, creamy white head, medium retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is citrus, pine, resin, and spruce hops, light biscuit malt, fruity esters, and spicy alcohol. Flavor is spicy alcohol, medium malt, heavy hops, moderate bitterness, and a dry finish. Full body, medium warmth and carbonation.

FatPhil (9618) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 24, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2012 1.5L bottle (Pikkulintu, Helsinki, Olutopas Pikkujoulu 2011) - shared by someone generous - thanks! (6:3:7:4:13=3.3)
6 Super sweet mandarin peach and toffee aroma.
3 Sludgy, but we were at the bottom of the bottle, after many pours.
7 Exceptionally toffee-ey taste, lots of fleshy fruits too.
4 Full, sweet, sticky body. Again, not aided by being at the end of the bottle, but if Mikkeller think itís a good idea to put beer in bottles this size, theyíve got to expect people to judge it after itís been tipped up 20 times.
13 Donít get me wrong, this may have been unclean to the eye, and stodgier on the tongue than what the guys who cracked it open for, but by no means was this unpleasant, it was very drinkable. Covered the alcohol well.
Rerate: 1.5L bottle (Drink Shop, Tallinn) (6:4:6:4:13=3.4)
From the top of the bottle this time - and itís a lovely clear red. Apart from that difference, itís mostly the same as before. Things related to teh slidginess are gone, and the toffee aspects too - this is drier. A real zingy bitter bite, but also smooth. Tasty - I like it, but it might be a little bit too agressive in places.

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2012 Bottle @ Bull & Bush Christmas beer tasting. Hazy, golden orange appearance with a white head. Spruce, pine, spicy aroma. Spicy, minty, spruce, piney hoppy, toasty malty, slightly fruity flavor.

daknole (9443) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 16, 2010
Amberish pour. Citrus hops, honey, and spices. Flavor is dominated by hops but has enough malt to balance it. Pretty good stuff.

1.5 liter bottle. Poured a medium and cloudy amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of citrus, some fruitiness, and floral hops. Tastes of the same floral hops, some pine, citrus, toastiness, and caramel. On the hoppy side.
