Hopmaestro (405) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JAN 5, 2015
Aroma is straight up apricots and oranges with not that much else besides a light bread note. The taste is far away from barley wine, apricots, mango and a moderate bitterness. This one is truly fresh and uplifting, but if it’s a massive barley wine you are going after, think again. Never the less, it’s a very good brew and it’s very drinkable. Maybe a bit too easy to drink?

tomekk1978 (801) - Ząbki, POLAND - NOV 23, 2014
Barwa: głęboko bursztynowa do lekko pomarańczowej, zamglona. Piana w kolorze przybrudzonej bieli, średniej wielkości, drobno pęcherzykowa i umiarkowanie trwała. Aromat: początkowo dominują chmiele amerykańskie (głównie cytrusy). Po tego wyraźna słodowość i słodycz oraz lekka estrowość w postaci landrynek. Po chwili zauważalna staje się również nuta alkoholowa. Bardzo przyjemny, ale niezbyt złożony. Smak: intensywnie słodowy, słodki z akcentem amerykańskich chmieli i zauważalną owocowością. Do tego lekki akcent gryki. Goryczka umiarkowana, do wysokiej, raczej delikatna z dość krótkim finiszem złagodzonym przez słodowość. Balans dobrze zrównoważony. Ogólnie zdecydowanie pełne, słodkie, umiarkowanie nasycone dwutlenkiem węgla, gęste i lepkie. Alkoholowość umiarkowana. Kolejne piwo z Mikkellera, tym razem w kooperacji z amerykańskim browarem Three Floyds. Jest to amerykańskie barley wine, które jednak zdecydowanie przypomina imperialną IPA. Przyznam, że gdybym nie wiedział co to za piwo miałbym pewne problemy z przyporządkowaniem go do stylu. Różni je bowiem w zasadzie jedynie niższy poziom goryczki. Ogólnie jest przyjemne w odbiorze, jednak chyba nie warte swojej ceny. IIPA smakujące podobnie można bowiem kupić znacznie taniej.
