Cirrhosis (1283) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 14, 2010
Yum yum yum. Honey brown body capped with a noisy white crown. Aroma has a punch to it citrus combined with a flower shop, spice and hints of apple, no alcohol but some sharp wood. Taste us yummy lots of yeast good spice a nice floral hop and has a pleasant alcohol burn. Feel is thin but it works for the beer. This sharp wood flavor is turning almost into pine the longer I drink. I got to say I’m really liking this Belgian/farmhouse/hopy combo. Has a tannic after taste that lingers forever. I want more!!

I appreciate the effort but there is an overwhelming vitamin presence in aroma and taste. Color and body are great. Finish is more interesting a little barnyard. Label is cool. A mixing beer for me. I am mixing this with a double IPA as I type this. It still has that annoying vitamin aspect but not as much. Try it you may like it. I wouldn’t buy this again. It is underwhelming.

This being a "rare" Mikkeller beer to South Florida, I decided to hunt it down and score a bottle from the great people up at the Charleston Beer Exchange. Belgian Strong Ales, to me, have always seemed hit or miss, but this one was one great beer. Poured into my Delirium snifter glass, I got a flutter of fruit, wheat, and berry aromas. The color was on the dark brown side with a thin white foamy head. The carbonation was pretty stellar. I sipped on a glass for about 10 minutes and every sip was just as good as the first. A great enjoyable beer from Mikkeller.

hobbersr (690) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 17, 2010
Pours a burnt orange with a nice white head. The aroma has honey, cherry skin, and chalky yeast. The flavor is kind of funky, but very green and chalky. There is a unballanced bitterness that lingers for a long time. Not one of Mikkel’s finest.

3.5
Savvy1982 (1706) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 17, 2010
Bottle. Pours clear deep amber, thin off-white head, fantastic lacing. Nose is nice and tart, winter fruits and stonefruits, plenty funky, plus some rye bread and sweet cake, some hops here as well. Flavours are much softer, some real fruit here too, nice winter apples, peaches, plums, soft carbonation, a bit lacking on flavour. Nice but not terribly exciting.

Cole (967) - , Alberta, CANADA - SEP 17, 2010
Pours brown with a nice beige head. Aroma is very yeasty you can really smell the bret. It also has a very malty aroma as well. sweet like toffee. Flavour is very mild. It is funky as it claims. But is a littledull, The toffee flavour is very bold and agreeable, slightly hopy with the bite of bret. This is an interesting brew but I was expecting a lot more.

drfabulous (7941) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - SEP 11, 2010
750 from Wine and Cheese. Caramel dominates the taste. Candy sweet aroma. I’m not sure where the wild is. No wild taste at all. It’s fine, but not a wild ale.

shigaleale (20) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 2, 2010
Bottle. Smells like caramel, apple peel, bread, Quite mild start on the tongue, and dry bitter finish. Not much flavour, but good texture - not too light not too heavy. Quite interesting beer from Mikkeller.

presario (4916) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 24, 2010
Bottle. Dark amber. Frothy head. Sweet gingerbread cookie aroma with more sugar than ginger. Flavour at first is quiet and easy to dismiss but then there is a sexy enticing alluring spice that keeps drawing you back to the glass. The bottom half of the bottle is even better than the top; this is not the alcohol talking but the stronger tasty spice. Maybe it is Belgian twins calling through the mist.

3.6
OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 18, 2010
0.75 L bottle from Ølkonsortiet, Aalborg. A fluffy short lasting blond head, upon a near-clear, amber colored body. Fresh yeasty up front, offset by a scent of toffee, fruity hops, and some mild tartness. Medium-bodied and fairly dry in the mouth. Taste is quity hoppy, citrussy and light resinous. Notes of caramelly malts down below. Warming alcohol throughout. Subtle brett tones. A very good one, but not as funky as expected.
