A great aroma, hoppy like a session pale ale with notes of apricot, caramel and fruit. Pours a hazy reddish brown color, tan well laced head. A complex taste, floral, caramel, a hint of malt and hops. Medium body, finish is a chalky flowery finish.

On tap at Mikkeller. Sour and citrusy aroma. Not too sour taste. But still sour. Citrusy and bitter too. Really nice.

tom10101 (5001) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 28, 2016
Bottle (330 ml) at home. Clear orangey-golden, borderline copper, with a medium off-white head, moderate retention, leaving little lacing. Aroma is of citrusy hops, piney notes, leathery brettanomyces, Belgian yest and caramel notes. Taste is piney and citrusy with moderate leathery brettanomyces presence, caramel, yeasty presence and medium bitterness. Medium body. Medium carbonation. A bit oily mouthfeel. Bitter finish that is borderline harsh. A generic Mikkeller Brett + hops beer. Not bad, but nothing to see here. Bitterness takes too much place for my liking. Ok.

Pours amber with 2 finger head. Aroma is very brett forward. Fresh lemon grass, green apples and a twang of funk. Medium carbonation and mouthfeel. Brett is the first thing on the palate, tartness, followed by fresh hops and a subtle bitterness. This is a really nice wild ale, the hops compliment it quite well. Would never think it was 8%
