COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Behold! The fifth collaborative effort of Three Floyds and Mikkeller. This complex ale is just the beverage for canal boat trips in Copenhagen or the brutal Chicago winter. This year’s offering will be brewed in both Europe and in Chicago. Look for both editions and the subtle differences in each. Cheers and thanks for supporting craft beer.

Bottled@PBF VIII. Hazy orange colour, small white head. Aroma is sweetness, some honey, mild toffee and some fruitiness. Flavour is fruits, some herbs and sweetness. This is very much a rather thin version.

75 cl bottle @ PBF VIII, BBE 14.11.2017
Vertical with the other one
Aroma is quite light with fruity notes and caramel. Flavour has biscuits, sweet fruity notes and some gooseberry bush. I like the Mikkeller version more due to the nice fruity notes it has.

omhper (19365) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 24, 2013
Bottled at PBF. Cloudy pale golden, small head. Rich grapefruit aroma. Sweetish with full body and clean, somewhat mushy mouthfeel. Grapefruit and ink, aggressively bitter finish. Probably the best rice barley wine I’ve had, but that is a highly dubious distinction...

lusikka (6239) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 24, 2013
650 ml bottle @ PBF 2013.
Pours a cloudy golden colour with a white head. Aroma of grassy hops, lemongrass, herbs and some caramel. Flavour of rich floral hops, strong rice, caramel, herbs and some maltiness. Full bodied, thick mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Finishes grassy, floral and sweet. The Mikkeller one was a bit better I think with a better hop profile and less rice.

tiong (3746) - Espoo, FINLAND - AUG 24, 2013
650ml bottle @ PBF 2013

Vertical with Mikkeller version - Pours lighter yellowish with a small foamy head. Aroma has much more fruity hoppy notes, sweet syrup, hints of grass and malts. Taste has a lighter body than the Mikkeller version, more hops and rice notable in the taste. Finish is hoppy, sweet and syrupy with some rice notes. This has even more DIPA notes.

Bragesnak (5387) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2013

Yorker (1190) - Herning, DENMARK - MAY 27, 2013
65 cl bottle @ home. Pours cloudy amber with some sediment and a white head that leaves quite a bit of lacing. Aroma is pine, grapefruit, grass, and caramel. Flavour is caramel, pine, citrus, and grapefruit – with a bitter finish. Not really a barley wine but an IIPA – and that’s fine by me.

_angst_ (2767) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 25, 2013
Bomber bought @ Bierkompass.de. Pours hazy goldenish amber with a rather small frothy offwhite head that quickly dissipates while leaving som lacing on the glass. Smell is fruity, floral and herbal with sweet bread, biscuits, alcohol, clovers, lemon zest, grapefruit juice, pine needles, resin, peaches, overripe mango and hints of caramel. Taste is sweet, bitter, tiny fruity and floral with sweet bread, alcohol, biscuits, grapefruit juice, dried apricots, overripe tropical fruits, freshly cut grass, pine needles, resin, dried flowers and hints of cookie dough and lemon zest. Mouthfeel is round, slightly sticky sweet, slightly astringent, slightly boozy and medium to full bodied. Finish is bitter and herbal with sweet bread, biscuits, grapefruit rinds, lemon zest, dried apricots, alcohol, pine needles and resin. Must confess I’m not experienced enough to know what the rice add but this version feels a bit lighter but yet boozier.

Införskaffad från Mikkeller bottle shop @ stefanegade. Ibland har man höga förväntningar på en öl och ibland, men bara ibland överträffar ölen förväntningarna ! Att skriva vad som var dåligt med Risgoopen är lätt, gör det mellan paranteserna ( ) ..... INGET ! Humle inslag var himelska, söt och fruktig. Den hade verkligen något hela vägen, välbalanserad. Till och med etiketten får nästan full pott :)
