I’m pretty sure Mikeller is Danish for genius. Nose has hints of grapefruit but delicate. It pours the color of iced tea with a thin white head and some lacing. Again you get big hop flavor without the bitterness. This shouldn’t be possible. This beers wears it’s 8% very well. What a pleasure it is to drink this beer.

beerisgoodforu (992) - Nørresundby, DENMARK - APR 8, 2011
Bottle @ Cask Pub and Kitchen in London. Pours an amber color with a frothy white head. Aroma is quite hoppy, with alot of grapefruit, brett, pine and some resinous notes. The flavor is quite hoppy with grapefruit and pine, along the brett and some breadiness. The body is medium with a fairly dry mouthfeel. Overall a pretty nice Belgian Strong Ale, with IPA notes because of the intense hoppy flavors.

BartC (727) - Lichtaart, BELGIUM - APR 3, 2011
Amber colored clear beer with a creamy off white head. Fizzy carbonation. Nice citrus taste, bitter and citrus / grapefruit more at the end. An Orval-lookalike but with US hopps: for sure a nice experiment.

Fred82 (2131) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - APR 1, 2011
750ml bottle thanks to savvy1984 (if memory serves).
Appearance : Amber with a small head.
Aroma : Light citrusy hops with light brett. Nice resinous profile.
Taste : Resinous hops, a bit floral with light brett. Finish quite resinous and dry.
Overall : I know this is not very fresh anymore. I wasn’t aware that this was a hoppy beer so I didn’t cared to open it sooner. Enjoyable brett flavours. Nice resinous nose. Interesting but past its prime.

On tap @ Patricks. Slightly hazy amber body with a big off-white head. Fine and refreshing citric fruity aroma with just a hint of brett. Flavor is refreshing citric fruity, grapefruit, bitter and slightly funky. Medium body and moderate bitter finish. Funny to compare with regular It’s Alive, seems like the American hops is hiding almost all the funkyness away. Still a nice beer, but a bit straight forward.
