Draft. Purple colour with a good white head. Funky fruits aroma, along with a bit of oak and a general sourness. Flavour is like a mixture between a red and a white wine. Really sour and dry. Slight hints of almonds. Funky fruits and berries. It’s quite good, but there are simply better alternatives, also from Mikkeller.

The taste is not as soury as I thought. It has this juice like palate. Really good with desserts.

On tap at Draught. Pours a clear garnet to ruby with a thin white head. Big sweet sticky berry pile hiding under sugared funky hay. Medium-bodied, cheesy with some buttery fruit and a whole big pile of sweet tangy acid, buttered passion fruit juice. Tangy and loaded with big sour acid. Like a beer sour patch kid, berries and passion fruit, tart and vibrant. Long lingering acid on the finish, berry flavored sour candy.

A toast for Prince
Pours a purple color with a big white head and lots of lacing on the glass.
Aroma is lightly funky with a bit of bright lemon like acidity. Overall it smells like a light red wine.. deep & fruity with nice oaky notes.
The flavor has a nicely balanced sourness tart & fruity while keeping it dry. Dark fruit & light cork like notes throughout.
A really good iteration of this series.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear ruby color with pink foam ring and nice lacing. Delightfully sour cassis nose. The taste is aggressive sour, but not completely overpowered. The fruit touch is intense and brings a certain sweetness in the still very sour touch. The aftertaste is sour fruity, but calm. Very pleasant beer, like most of the Mikkeller Spontan I tried.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Rödvinsfärgad med rosa skum. Syrlig doft med klara inslag av svarta vinbär, lite kryddor kan anans. Smaken är syrlig, fräsch och lite kärv med fina toner av svarta vinbär och en bra kryddighet. En tuff men fräsch och fruktig öl.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is obvious black currants with a deeper kind of aroma with barnyard notes and slight rainwet young firewood. Taste is once again obvious black currant, but not as sour as you’d might expect? No, there’s a fair share of sweetness in here, slight black currant jam. Wooden undertones and tart and dry in the aftertaste. Refreshing stuff! Maybe a little one dimensional, but still great.
