3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle into pint glass, best before 8/17/2017. Pours slightly hazy golden orange color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of mango, passion fruit, pineapple, grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, light pine, caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus hops, tropical fruits, and moderate bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of mango, passion fruit, pineapple, grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate pine/grassy bitterness and light fruit tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of mango, passion fruit, pineapple, grapefruit, lemon/orange peel, pine, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/pine hops, tropical fruits, and moderate bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero astringent flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from bitterness, lightly increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and moderately creamy/bready/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero alcohol presence as expected of 5%. Overall this is a very nice fruited pale ale style. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/pine hops, tropical fruits, and moderate bready malt flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

330ml Bottle from Kihosk, Copenhagen (35 Danish Krone):
Good stuff from Mikkeller, not their best but still a very pleasant offering with good bitterness & a subtle sweetness that balanced things out nicely. The mango & passion fruit seemed stronger with the nose & I wish they’d been stronger in the taste but overall I enjoyed this one & I’m glad I managed to grab a bottle as it’s not one I’ve ever spotted in the UK before.
