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 (2084) - 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 (1107) - 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...

storskurk (117) - DENMARK - OCT 18, 2013
Duft af vingummi og humle. Flot kobbergylden og sjovt nok helt klar. Karamel bagerst på tungen. Medium-heftig Brett karakter træder frem derefter og så en heftig bitterhed der blander sig med funky smag helt til slut. God, fyldig krop velafbalanceret mellem bitterhed, malt og funkness. Simply perfect. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

aletcm (136) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - OCT 16, 2013
Cor acobreada. Espuma creme e persistente com bolhas pequenas. Aroma herbáceo do lúpulo bem evidente. Aroma de açúcar mascavo, e um pouco frutada. Bem carbonatada, médio corpo. Sabor com médio dulçor. Amargor proeminente e herbáceo, bem lupulada. Sabor do malte também aparece em menor quantidade. Final seco e amargor persistente. Excelente cerveja, bem refrescante. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mathieuc (1396) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 6, 2013
Pours a clear copper with a nice white head that leave enormous lacing. Really nice! Aroma is indeed american: grapefruits, pine, almost dank. Nice leathery notes from the brett also. Taste is dry dry dry and bitter. Flavors of fruits (mangoes, ananas) with a good yeast presence. Some alcohol can be felt but it isn’t disturbing. Body is light, carbonation of an higher order. This isn’t an improvement over the original but it is really nice. Quite pleased by this bottle!

This is like an imperial saison .. . Pours a deep gold .. . Foam is everywhere man .. . Brett is prominent, with hay, yeast, and dna .. . Grungy mouth, not subtle at all but i liked it .. . . I’m checking to make sure you have the exact change for the bus... now I’m stealing.

Light lacy head on a hazy gold pour. Wild yeasty aroma and the taste has malt and a bit of funk on a resin-y finish that isnt my favorite.
