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.

omhper (19370) - 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...

Hazy deep gold beer, big off white head. Palate is light and a little crisp. Lovely lovely hoppy goodness! A touch of light skunk, sweet pine, orange led tropical fruits. Mango also prominent. Finishes smooth with mild creamy malt, skunk and more tropical fruits. Fabulous!
