Draught at Mikkeller Bar, opening night
Bright amber color. It’s the first of the series, I can’t yet compare it, but the fruity hops are somehow too strong to reveal the qualities of the yeast. Both aroma and flavor are rather fruity, and the yeast seems to build a spicy character; good toffee backbone.

pours hazy caramel, decent white head. doesn’t really look like a typical lager, as expected from Mikkeller. nose is herbal malts, earthy hop profile, Belgian yeast. full bodied with long, bitter aftertaste. I dug it.

12 oz. bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a hazy amber color with a small off white head. The nose is moderately sweet malts, mildly spicy, with some herbal and floral notes as well. Flavors of caramel malts, a nice fruitiness, spicy notes with some light herbals as well. I had no idea what to expect, but found this to be fairly tasty.

Bottle. Poured a hazy copper color with an average frothy white head that was lasting and produced excellent lacing. Good moderate earthy leather hop and yeast aroma. Medium to full body with a dry slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy bittersweet flavor with with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This beer exceeded my expectations.

Thanks to yespr for that one. Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass very zippy, huge head. Starts hoppy and dry, modest sweet. Some fruity hints of lemon. Finish mild, dry-malty. Quite drinkable. Not bad!

Dark orange body with a big off white head. Nice fresh hoppy aroma, some maltiness with caramel. Medium body, easy drinking, alcohol is noticeable though. Flavour is bittersweet, citric, with caramel and cereal.

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2013 Bottle. Amber clear. One finger head. Almost no malt/hop aromas. Sourbitter in taste and finish. A little dull but strong! Rerated with the new yeast serie. Two finger foam. Hazy copper. Extreme intens citrus tropical fruit aromas. Quite bitter. Can it be the Same recipe as the former serie. Totally different upgrade brew.
