Beese (2550) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2014
Draught at BrewDog Camden on 13 Oct 2012. Poured a bright amber, with a dense off white head. Aroma of tangerines, big malt and white grapes. Citrus hop flavours, with some passionfruit and building bitter pine. Finish was lingering resin, tinned fruit and candy sugar.

MrFecesious (1091) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 22, 2014
750mL bottle. Cloudy reddish brown and good lacing. Aroma is tart citrus, brown sugar and toasted malt, prunes, dates, biscuit. Taste is dark fruit sweetness, and hoppy citrus bitterness. A mix of creamy and effervescent. Medium low dry finish.

fkoolen (357) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - NOV 19, 2014
Beautiful deep orange colour, almost transparent, big white foamy head. Sweet tropical fruits and banana, pine and nice bitterness from the hops, soft grainy malts, caramel, boozy alcohol, little barnyard funk and brett-sour tones. Complex but very well balanced. Soft mouthfeel, (too) low carbonation, good body.

Close your eyes & imagine you're drinking a Belgium abbey ale - then check the bottle & remember that this is Mikkeller. The gypsy gent has out done himself this time - a truly world class brew. Smooth mouthfeel with distinctive Belgium taste & not overly sweet. Complex taste with subtly bitter finish. Rated by BrewTom

b3shine (5820) - Indiana, USA - OCT 14, 2014
Draft to taster at Three Floyds. Looks good; a very slightly hazy darker orange with foamy head that’s very light caramel in color. Smells bittersweet and boozy with notes of toffee. Tastes like it smells, but more balanced, with a nice, smooth mouthfeel. Enjoyable, and one of the few that tastes smoother than it smells.

slowrunner77 (6081) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 25, 2014
"tastes like different hops and yeast than the other "alive" brew I’ve had. Still lots of brett and funky goodness...meshes really well with the hops used in this one, but I miss the yeast. Nice frothy refreshing brew (especially at 8%) anyway."

RexTalionis (2602) - FINLAND - SEP 7, 2014
Bottle. Pours mahogny in color with a white foamy head. Sweet garden fruityness, berries, bit of herbal notes and honey in aroma. Later malty and spicy notes appears. Tropical fruity notes and hints of funkyness in taste. Also grapefruits and green herbs in aftertaste.

NikkTwist (1743) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Draft at Eulogy. Cloudy brown amber with a huge frothy off-white head. Bright spicy hops backed by a lot of well browned amber fruit. Desiccated oranges and lemons. Golden raisins. Peach pits. Macadamia nuts. Sulfured apricot ears. Rotted caramel apples. Black tea. Cactus fruit. Unusual.

On tap at Mikkeller BKK, August 2014. Amber with a small head. On the sweet side with malt, caramel, fruit, some berries and light yeast. Some warming alcohol in the finish.
