COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mikkel and Brian are two of the world’s most unconventional brewers. By designing beers at various breweries around the globe, they have found the freedom to experiment and innovate, resulting in unique beers that often blur the lines of definition. After having met at a festival in Bodegraven, NL the two realized that their first creations both were called Stateside. It was then an obvious decision to make the two recipes into a new product, packed full of piney, resinous hops, and backed by the esters of a farmhouse yeast strain.

Good, not great. I was expecting more. Flavor was pretty nondescript. Some malt character, some bitterness. Perhaps this one was better fresh. Oh well.

ROGUE (2086) - Newark, Delaware, USA - AUG 28, 2013
750ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazed medium amber color with an inch of coarse off-white head. Aroma is sweet and mildly fruity with hints of spice from the yeast. Taste has bitter citrus peel hops that hit first, followed by a mild sweetness with hints of banana and spice. The finish is bitter. Medium body with a nice amount of carbonation

8/31/2011: Mikkeller Stillwater Two Gypsies Our Side... Aroma: Alcohol steeped grapefruit and orange peel; yeasty, hint of yeasty dough; very fruity with a hint of fresh apricot and pineapple. Appearance: Opaque gold color with a foamy, dull beige head. Flavor: Fruity and spicy; lots of citrusy hoppiness (for the style); I like the moderate grapefruit peel/pithe bite in the finish. Palate: Medium to medium-full body; soft and fuzzy feel; good level of carbonation. Overall: Nice beer and quite tasty.

Bottle. Pours a hazy orange golden color with a small white head. The aroma is floral, tropical, and citrus fruits, grass, bread dough, herbal with a hint of pepper. The flavor has an interesting blend of hop fruit character, citrus and tropical, with a dry feel. Toasted malts,yeast, some earthy bitterness through the finish and a bit of peppery spice. Quite a bit going on.

MrBunn (2384) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 15, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazy straw color with a huge head of foam. Aromas are kinda lemony but faint... maybe a little grassy edge to them. Flavor is not great... the beer has a lemon and grass herbal presence with a hot alcohol feel to it. This one is a fail in my book.
