Mikkeller Hva Såå?!
Bottled, from Systembolaget. Hazy amber, mid sized head. Funky nose with sweaty hay and citrus. Dry with light body and clean, hard mouthfeel. Barnyard, orange peels and metal. Mid bitter finish. Nice aroma, but lifeless character.

Mikkeller Tommi’s Beerger Joint
330ml bottle shared on the train to Birmingham Beer Bash 2016, thanks to Paul for this. Pours murky pale yellow, white head. Aroma is surprisingly bretty, with some citrus. Taste is crisp and bretty with lightly spicy citrus. Surprised to see no mention of brett used here. Can imagine this cutting through a good juicy burger.

Mikkeller George! Barrel Aged (Calvados Edition)
Bottle poured into nosing glass. Pours pitch black oily with only slight brown head. Nose is intense coffee and cocoa strong roasty aroma. Oily, creamy mouthfeel with Overall low carbonation. Taste is roasty alcoholic, burned coffee slight grassy hops and definitely some faint calvados on the tip of the nose. The beer very sticky and heavy in the mouth, definitly a complex but not easy to drink beer...

Mikkeller SpontanCassis
Mycket god fruktlambic. Doften domineras av sur frukt, svart vinbär och körsbär, med jäst i bakgrunden. Färgen är ljuvlig, med rosa skum som snabbt sjunker undan. Smaken är kraftigt syrlig, med tydlig svartvinbärssmak, och torr. En öl att sitta och sippa på länge! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mikkeller X Kolsvart Lakrits IPA
A 0.33 l bottle from Mali Ducan, Split. It pours a hazy amber to copper body with medium sized yellow head. Very fine aroma of tropical fruits and light citrus hops, licorice, various spices like pepper and cloves, with toasted bread malt. Flavor is lightly bitter, herbal, only lightly fruity with strong licorice note that adds to the sweetness and gets well along with biscuit malt. Medium bodied with moderately long, lightly sweet even, with licorice, fruity and candy. Lightly milky in the aftertaste, too. Quite interesting one, and I really like it!

Cellar clean out session Pt Deux. Light haze on this pale gold beer, big white head. A tad over carbonated. Nose of winey brett. Palate is light and a little dry, good fine carbonation. Mellow floral lemon. A winey tang. Mild acid and dry seltzer. Light dry tangy finish. Not getting much red wine character here, in fact pretty similar to the white wine version.

Mikkeller California Rare
Bionda, con ampia schiuma bianca di media grana. Aroma floreale, lievito, pizzico di agrumi. Molto interessante al palato, con una amarezza. Sostenuta per tutta la bevuta. Sempre sentori erbacei e floreali. Discretamente secca e amara nel finale. Carbonazione media. Piacevole.

Ckoudy bright orange-amber with good amount of white slightly frothy head. Smells of orange, floral hop, moderately spicy yeast and esters. Taste is very bitter, some light pepper/clove. Body is a cross between a lager and a pils with light Belgian frothiness. Quite a nice nose.

Mikkeller Beer Geek Bacon
Bottle. Pours a jet black beer with a small ring of tanned head on top. Aroma is rather smokey, syrupy and bacon, some molasses in there as well. Flavor is odd, a bit sweet and a bit salty even. Must be the bacon. Maybe even bittersweet, not sure though. Rather thick, full bodied malty experience with roasty characters. Aftertaste is long and sweet with overtones of smoke. A bit weird, but very nice!!

Mikkeller SpontanOrange
Draft at the Red Hot. Pours a cloudy bright orange amber with a loose white head that sticks around. Bright tangy oranges on the nose, a little earthy bite hiding under that, showing rocks and a bit of dry straw. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Oranges, minerals, straw, and some bright lemony notes on the mid palate. Long tangy finish. I was speculating that this couldn’t have been one of the De Proef Spontans, because it was so much cleaner and more focused than the earlier batches from there, but, lo and behold, I was exactly wrong. Happy to be so--this was one of the nicer beers to drink that I had today.
