fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 26, 2011
Draught at Mikkeller Bar, opening night
Hazy red-amber color. Nice sour aroma, Bretts, some acetone, light glue. Very strange flavor, at the same time sour and creamy; it reminds me very creamy and milky cheese(s) from Lombardy. Strange but nice.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 22, 2010
A Mes rate. Draught at Mikkeller.
Hazy dark amber with a decent off white head. Looks like it means business. Properly sour stuff. Awesome funky Mikkel madness. Rich and fruity underneath and something delicately sweet about it that really balances it out well. There’s an almost buttered popcorn note in the finish that I really like. Something slightly roasty about it too and a hint of Coca Cola. Loooonnnnnnnnng sour finish. Bloody good stuff.

oh6gdx (20004) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 15, 2010
Draught@Mikkeller Bar. Hazy deep orangeish amber colour, small beige head. Aroma is sour wood, spices, yeast and some quite nettlelike notes. Flavour is sour wood, spices, mild alcohol, tart fruits as well as some quite nice sour/acidic notes. Yet very mellow and drinkable. One of the top beers during my Copenhagen stay.
