4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz Bottle from Hop City.
Poured into a snifter, a hazy amberish almost orange color, about a finger and a half of pure white head. Good retention and lacing.
Nose is very hard to distinguish exactly what you smell, I pick up sweet notes, smells of malt and yeast, and a little grain alcohol kind of scent.
The more that it oxidizes the less yeast smell blends with a malt smell.
A very very interesting beer. first part of the taste is very dry and has a mix of sweet citrus notes along with yeast and a slight booziness which is well masked, or just completely different than other high abv beers,
Palate picks up a bitter hop aroma and tongue that lingers.
Overall, a super interesting beer, not something I would drink everyday or session-able, but I am very glad I got the opportunity to try another of Mikkelers fine creations!

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
"Bought this as a gimmick, but actually loved it. Reminiscent of a super-strong blonde barleywine with it’s vanilla/citrus blend of aroma and flavors. Aroma has some phenols as well, but they compliment the overall package, which is sweet and boozy without being at all cloying. Dry finish. Already went back for another..."

Pours a golden yellow with a decent amount of floating yeast in the glass. Aroma is solvent, alcohol, pine sol, floor cleaner, maybe a little honey. The taste is slightly sweet grassy harsh alcoholic nail polish remover with a hint of banana. Nasty.

Draught at Cask, Clerkenwell on 29 Dec 2012. Poured a hazy amber, with a thin off-white head. Aroma of toffee, spruce and gluey esters. Full flavours; tinned fruit, malt and some citrus hop character. Finish was not too boozy, considering, some grain and grassy hop resin.
