75 cL bottle. Pours unclear golden deep orange with a one to two finger thick, off-white and creamy head - slowly collapsing. Fresh floral hops aroma with a light dry brett accent. Flavour is peachy, grapefruit and citrusy. Distinct bitter dryness mixed with a brett dry base. Subdued caramel sweetness. Quite dry yet also refreshing floral finish. Goes fantastic with a light spiced tapas and creamy cheeses. The fresh floral US hops for me gives this beer a distinct lift in drinkability.

Ungstrup (29222) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 26, 2009
Another Mikkeller beer drunk to celebrate a century, this time my rating number 12,700. Bottled. A dark amber beer with a huge orangey head. The aroma is sweet and very hoppy, the hops lending it notes of spices, fruit, and pine needles, but also notes of malt and alcohol. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of alcohol and hops, the hops lending it notes of lots of pine needles as well as medium notes of spices and citrus fruits, the alcohol gives the beer some very sharp edges. The finish is quite bitter. I find the hop profile a bit harsh. I wonder what age will do this beer, hopefully round the edges of the alcohol, and maybe also make the hops more harmonious.

omhper (19318) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 12, 2011
Bottled. Hazy amber, lively head. Grapefruity hoppy nose. Mid sweet. Fruity with a bit of sweat, funk and hay. Medium bodied with rounded mouthfeel. Grapefruity hops works as a blanket to cover the finer nuances of the beer and creates a long resiny bitterness.

Hazy darkish amber beer. Dry palate with a soft, almost creamy edge. Frothy in the mouth. Rich peppery hops deliver bitterness but not overly aggressive. Slightly aniseedy finish.

Draught at Plan B, Copenhagen
Light amber color; big creamy head. Wonderful aroma, hoppy, creamy, with delicate fruits (peaches, mango, sweet oranges). Medium body strength, but quite round mouthfeel, with very good, sweetish toffee flavor, perfectly complemented by the fruity hops. The final is well balanced as well, less powerful than the flavor, maybe missing some sweetness for my taste; in the end there is an aftertaste of Belgian yeast. Excellent beer.
