Jimthechap (1572) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 15, 2013
A bit of an odd blighter this one as by look it seems Belgian but by aroma and flavour was deeply American NW. Slightly hazy mellow orange colour with a fulsome cream coloured head, this was lively in the glass - courtesy of its yeasty origin. Aromas of stonefruit, faintly resinous, mainly herbal. Plenty of lively mouthfeel and great oily dabs of hoppy fruitiness, accompanied by elegant sweet white-peachy nectarine flavours. Sat on the palate for ages because of the gentle bitterness. Remarkable beer and an interesting crossover.

jbruner (2181) - Athens, Georgia, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Pours a hazy copper on tap with thin cap of off-white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma is sweet caramel malt and candied sugar, with a funky yeasty middle, and a tart medicinal ending. Taste follows, with a dry finish. Solid beer.

k0mpsa (1084) - Järvenpää, FINLAND - DEC 1, 2013
Tap at mikkeller and friends. Dark amber color, white head. Nice hoppy and fruity aroma, malty also. Taste is hoppy belgian sweet, nice combination. Body is balanced and taste is good, some yeast.

Tomy63 (185) - Clermont-Ferrand, FRANCE - NOV 26, 2013
Très beau nez, très éxotique (mangue, passion, litchi) avec du pamplemousse également. L’entrée en bouche est encore exotique mais ce beau fruité ne dure pas assez à mon goût, la fin de bouche est sur le caramel, la céréale, avec des notes florales et épicées aussi. Belle longueur en bouche et bonne amertume cependant.

Homer321 (1809) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - OCT 31, 2013
Draft. Strong hoppy nose. Huge off white head. Flavor is a sweet malt honey like flavor with a hop juice presence. Slightly tart. In a refreshing way. Not too sour. Not too shabby.

Ktwse (1914) - SWEDEN - OCT 25, 2013
Pours cloudy deep amber, low white head. Aroma of bretta, passion fruit, mango, loads and loads of fruit... Taste is light medicinal bitter with some fruit sweet and very light tart. Body is light and crisp with average carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lore (1005) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 19, 2013
hazy amber colour, huge yellowish head; aroma of yeast, floral-grassy hops and some herbal notes - great appearance and aroma, quite promising so far; taste of hops with some disturbing medicine-like bitterness which makes it much less enjoyable...it will never be my favourite...well, in fact it is a torture to drink this only one opened bottle...this is definitely the worst Mikkeller beer, I’ve ever tasted...UPDATE: after a half glass, I was not able to continue drinking this thing, in the light of its price, I put it back to the fridge...maybe tomorrow, maybe with some food with intensive taste...maybe...
