It took me a few weeks to crack this open but I was greeted by a fine beer. Usually when I pick up Mikkeller beers they are higher gravity ones that can cellar well. This one was just too interesting to pass up though. I don’t know if there’s been another bottling. If so grab one fresh and enjoy a fine tropically inspired pale ale.

Aroma / Appearance - The mostly opaque body has a rosy peach outlook. An ivory head glows brightly. Oranges, mangoes, passion fruit, and guava take me a tropical island in the summer. A strong hoppiness pervades the entire profile.

Flavor / Palate - The smoothness of fresh cut mangoes softens the transition to a bitter finish. Oranges and vanilla yogurt carry the resiny aftertaste into a lingering memory. This one last a while before finally fading like a lazy sunset.

A lovely fruity and hoppy aroma. A brief medium white head. a hazy brown colour. Taste is crisp. Mouth feel is a bit watery. Hops taste like mild pine needles. A fair amount of carbonation. Leaves a bitter after taste like an IPA should. A good beer for only 5 % alcohol.

On tap at Barrel House larnaca. Aroma is full of Fruits and you can really taste the mango. As it warms it becomes switter but still retaining a slight bitter finish.

Koelschtrinker (9999) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUL 7, 2012
Deutlich kräuterartiger und frischer Antrunk, in dem die moderate Herbe schon fast untergeht. Stark karbonisiert geht es weiter, die Kräuteraromen bleiben dabei konstant und wirken nicht so, als hätten sie irgendwann vor abzuschwächen. Und so ist es dann auch, erfrischend anders geht das Bier weiter, die Herbe hat sich mitlerweile verabschiedet und überlässt den Kräuternoten nun den gesamten Bereich. Etwas brauseartig wirkender Abgang. Überaus interessant! Vielen Dank an den Doppelbock für das Bier! /11/12/10/11/11

Idiosynkrasie (3593) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 7, 2012
330ml bottle. Minimally cloudy orangey golden colour with macropore to frothy collapsing white head. Grassy hop aroma, decent orange fruity notes, orange, mandarin, peach. Taste is fruity, some dry and tart notes, hoppy background. The finish is signed by well balanced fruit notes combining sweet, dry and tart notes.

Frovigalning (2908) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUL 4, 2012
Bottle at BA in Örebro. It poured a hazy golden liquid. Lots of tropical fruits on the nose, mango and tropical fruit juice. Similar taste, fruity, a bit sour (like fresh frui), passion fruit, mango, sweet and with a grapefruit finish. Taste allot like tropical fruit juice. Interesting beer that should work well during the summer, but also hard to rate.

Beerheart65 (957) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 29, 2012
Nice fresh aroma: citrus, coniferous wood, some caramel. Really nice. Orange colour, bit blurry. Nice creamy head that stays really long. Taste is really hoppy with lemon. Malty caramel stays in background. Maybe some variations would be nice here, bit minimalistically pure now. Mediumbodied, carbonation good. Overall good beer with excellent aroma.

thirstyrabbit (1065) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 26, 2012
Bottle. Cloudy orange body (natural apple juice), small head. Aroma is mostly fruity with some hops chiming in. Juicy taste with mango and some grapes. A bit too fruity, I’d like it to be more beery. Lightly sour finish with light dry bitterness.
