What better way to celebrate todays Dem victory than drinking a fantastic íMerkin beer! Yes I know its Danish but I needed an excuse to drink this beer as it is frightfully $$$ in NZ. The brett is not as pronounced in this beer as the Rayon V, but in this case the subtlety adds to the beers flavour profile.

tap@Mikkeller Bar (Viktoriagade), CPH (14/03/2014) - amber to copper pour with a medium off-white head. Fruity malty taste and aroma, sweer caramel malty, yeasty, some nice spicy hoppyness in this, floral and bretty, with a bitter finish. Nice!

AdiBeer (608) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2014
Aroma: sweet caramel malts, yeast in the background. Appearance: clear amber, small to medium white head. Taste: light bitter and medium sweet. Palate: alcohol notes, brings up sweetness, sours from the yeast yet very sweet, average to long-finish, dry. Overall: far better-than-average Belgium Strong Ale, not too sour. Pint at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen.

Gerbeer (1494) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 9, 2014
750 ml bottle. Pours copper with full head. Aromas of pine, oranges, and light brett. Flavors of toffee, marmalade, and toasted malts. Only slightly sour. Short bitter finish. Excellent.

Lagerboy (1071) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 8, 2014
3/6/2014, Mikkeller Tasting Night @ The Brownstone, 4th and final round: shared 750 ml bottle. Mostly clear lighter copper, lasting off-white foam. Brett funk, floral hop aroma. Hybrid taste of floral citric herbal PNW hops mixed with a bretty funkiness, bitter and yeasty, low malt profile. Average carbonation, medium body, more aggressively hopped. Citrus increases as it warms. DNFL (Definitely Not For Lagerboys) Paired with a creamy chicken pot pie filling and baking powder biscuit.

drowland (5958) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - MAR 5, 2014
1/17/14. On tap at Proof. Amber pour with a small khaki head. Funky aroma, plenty of brett and wildies in there, floral, fruity, a hint of a metallic aspect. Sweeter and maltier flavor than I was expecting, caramel, fruitiness, Brett, touches of yeast spiciness. Not bad.

Moolesen (108) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 1, 2014
Bottle 75cl. Red/orange with a big beige head. A bit sour nose from the wild yeast. Medium rich, not impressive at first. The hop is not as present as I expected. Tne wild yeast is too dominant. Not my style.

DialSquare (2316) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 29, 2014
On tap at Proof (tried next White Wine Barrel and Lychee). Amber pour, white head. Aroma is brett. Tastes are salty barnyard and hoppy bitter. Also peach. 7.4

Aurelius (3908) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 24, 2014
Hazy tea-bronze with an oatmeal head. Vaporous, fresh, sweet, fruity, amber malt aroma with light chemical tones and citrus peel. Not as edgy as it smels. Woody, APA bitter. Medium-heavy body. Woody bitter finish and tangy. OK to slightly pretty good. On tap, Proof.

PorterPounder (5199) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Tallahassee, Fl - Proof Brewing Company - on tap. Dark orange pour, medium thick off-white head, nice lacing. Aroma is that of sweet kidís cereal with some floral accents. Flavor has some apricot-like fruitiness, some overripe fruit, some weird funkiness. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Not a highlight of the evening.
