cmacklin (673) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 30, 2015
330ml bottle. Pours a hazy, golden orange with a massive, frothy, long lasting, beige head that leaves plenty of lacing. Sweet aroma of caramel malt, spices, candy, yeast, grapefruit and light brett. Sweet, fruity flavour of peach, grapefruit, caramel malt, spices and yeast with a dry, bitter, hoppy, astringent, alcohol finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Well done.

Tap @ Mikkeller bar Aarhus. Hazy amber pour with a generous head. Notes of yeast, grapefruit, lemon rind, some light sweet malts and biscuits. Refreshing!

From tap. Pours hazy amber with a white head. Aroma of funk, citrus, definate hop character, slightly tropical, light earthy. Taste is lots of funk and brett, light citrus, floral, low carbonation, very enjoyable.

Fritz123 (1535) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - DEC 12, 2015
Draft at the Oak Barrel. Pours a deep amber with haze in a small snifter. Big head. Somewhat sweet aroma of candied fruits, prunes, raisins, biscuit, Belgian yeasts, brett and caramel. Taste similar with the mix of the sweet fruits, biscuit, brett and Belgian Yeasts. Medium mouth, slick. Fuller body.

Una American Amber Ale dove ci è finito dentro il brettanomices. Una American Wild Ale? Certo che i luppoli ci sono e si sentono tutti: dagli agrumi ai frutti tropicali. Il brettanomices da quel rustico che ti aspetti, ma definire questa birra un lambic è troppo. Mikkeller sorprende, ma soprattutto prende quote di mercato con ammiccanti misture. Io sono prevenuto, ma questa è comunque un buon prodotto.

8%ABV. Belgian Strong Ale. Tapped out a dark nut brownn amber. 20ºSRM. Nose is acetic with a nice lactic, milky sweetness. Almost like the aroma of yogurt. There are sweet roasty chestnut type aromas as well. Mouthfeel is carbonated and alcoholic. Nicely rounded full-bodied palate remiscent of saltwater taffy, there are nice nutty flavors of roasting chestnuts, hazelnuts and acorns. Finish is brief, lightly bitter and respectable. The fact that this is wild has introduced some other players into the brew and they’ve created something different. Not lambic or sour ale different, but different enough to be something else. The nose is likely where the wild nature of this ale is most apparent. Palate is pretty conventional...and tasty.

nihtila (2615) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 24, 2015
Keg at Ushers. Deep amber, smooth beige head. Tempting aroma with fruitcake, brown sugar, light christmas spices. Unfortunately taste doesnt reach that but still good; dryish bitter bretted fruits, light caramel, light wood, light spices.
