Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen
Hazy amber color with compact and persistent head. The aroma is fruity (stone fruits), but also a bit stale/dusty. Good body structure, round and smooth mouthfeel; it has a peculiar delicate flavor of cookies, some malt, light maple syrup; some Brett character, but not necessarily acidity; it gets dry, and quite bitter; some hard tannins in the final are difficult to accept.
Strange beer, but interesting, somehow.

Bottle. A big, dense, off-white head forms over a more or less clear body, dark golden in color. Nice lacings. Citrusy and funky aroma, lemon and pineapple, A bit simple maybe, yet quite complex if you’re spending some time with your nose in the glass. Peppery spicyness, some peaches, pine cones and leather. The bitterness in the flavor suits the funk very nice, and the residual sugar gives body to the beer. Nice carbonation. Lasting finish with sweetness, bitterness, fruityness and spicyness. This one and the saison edition is certainly the best and most interesting of this series. 130510
