rosenbergh (10623) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 8, 2010
Draught at Ølbaren, København, Denmark.
Hazy dark amber colour with bubbly off-white head. Fruity hops, yeast and bitterness in rather mild aroma. Citrus, fruits and dark hops in flavour. Quite easy hoppiness.

Bottle. Hazy brownish orange pour with a fluffy beige head that sticks around. Aroma is quite hoppy as well as showcasing the slightly fruity, spicy yeast, with notes of grapefruit, lemongrass, coriander, lime, lemon and caramel. The flavour is similar but features the yeast more prominently, displaying the same fruitiness as well as more spice, funk, mineral and dried grass. Light, dry mouthfeel with moderately smooth carbonation and a lingering spicy, bitter finish. Very nice and very easy to drink. Another great addition to another great series from Mikkeller.

vyvvy (5885) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - SEP 5, 2010
Pours amber / orange with a large light tan head. The aroma has earthy hops, general dryness, toasted malt, crackers and light spice. Medium crisp grainy body and a froth semi-sharp carbonation presence. The flavor starts with a hearty hop presence that is earthy and piny with tosted malt and lots of dry caramel. The finish is very dry, toasty and earthy. Enjoyable beer.

On tap at Mikkeller Bar. Pours beautiful, red copper with a tan head. Citrussy hop nose. Pronounced bitterness, some mellow fruitiness. Nice.

slowrunner77 (10229) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 3, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2014 perhaps THE most sessionable in the yeast series. fairly aggressive hops like in the rest but well tempered and balanced by the spicy yeast. not incredibly complex, but a nice beer.

33cl bottle from K&L. Pours hazy amber in color, with a clingy white head sitting on top and some lacing. The aroma is similar to the other yeast series beers - caramel, earth, and citrusy hops. Maybe it’s just me, but the citrusy and hoppy notes shine through more with this one than the others. The flavor has sweet caramel malt, citrusy hops, and substantial orange peel. This is probably the sweetest of the series. Yeast does not play a big role. Medium-bodied with an average carbonation level. Middle of the road for the series.

Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter with a long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20100831]

BMan1113VR (7917) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 23, 2010
Bottle. Pours with a murky golden body and a large, off-white head. Aroma of hops, citrus, orange rind, fruit esters, pine and toffee. Taste is caramel, toffee, pine, and a decent amount of bitterness. Slightly husky. Very lively bubbles, a bit of alcohol. Good beer overall, a bit more enjoyable than the Lager because the body seems a bit fuller and there are some nice esters/fruit notes to counter balance the bitterness.

Grovlam (4208) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 21, 2010
Large pale beige head that mostly lasted. Fair display of lacework. Light pale amber color. Aroma of mild fruit, caramel and a hint of light hopes. Over the palate came light citrus feel and again some floral hoppy notes. Medium bodied with an average carbonation and light dry texture. Moderated bitter and sweet flavor in balance. Light bitter almost spicy finish.
