Hazy reddish orange pour with foamy 2 finger head.Was on a discount shopping cart.Seemed skunky at first but that is changing. Aroma seems meaty/B-vitamins probably due to poor storage.Hop is subtle with a malty breadiness,there is some dankness as it warms.Im gonna say aroma is herbal/floral so far,i smell malt more it seems so its had its time probably.4$ a bottle is not much of a discount for a poorly stored beer. Taste had a little belgian at first but that faded quickly,its full bodied with a dark carmel roasty dry malt with a bit of raison sweet hop and a spicy linger of a bitter.The bittering isnt too strong but its more of spicy bitter.Im shure i would think different if i had a fresher better stored bottle,how unfortunate.

oops, how strange. Bottle best before February 2016, stored in fridge for about 10 months; yet some cheesy yeast in the nose, under a beautiful grapefruity and herbal bunch of aromas. Overall taste of pink grapefruit, but then a soapy component sneaks in, soap and bitterness, and more bitterness towards the end, even more bitterness in aftertaste, in fact, a quite brutal bitterness, chemically treated grapefruit peel. Can’t believe this was meant like that...

mmahut (1192) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JAN 25, 2015
Bottle. Pours in light hazy, clear dark amber body, medium to high creamy head. Aroma has dark fruity character, peach, ripped apricot, bloody orange. Taste has light grainy, malty medium to high sweetness, the bitterness is pretty low, light earthy. Balance towards the grainy sweetness, usual. Amazing on the nose, boring on the taste. Body is full, medium carbonation.

MarcoDL (2446) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 7, 2015
Bottle. Orange golden pour, white foamy head. Aroma of grassy hop, pine and orange. Taste is freshly bitter, with orange, zest, some yeast and a little grapefruit. Bitter finish. Drinkable and fruity. Nice one, but could use a bit more hop character, or perhaps it should be fresher.

MSBrindbergs (450) - Solna, SWEDEN - NOV 29, 2014
Fat på Mikkeller Bar. Grumlig orange, vitt skum. Doftar övermogen frukt. Mango i smaken, grapefrukt likaså, kaxig beska men något saknas i smakbilden. Känns lite avslagen? Överlag mkt trevlig, men föredrar amarillo och citra. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
