Draught at ōrsted. Bright orange/coppercoloured. Thin white head, that disappeares rather quickly.
The aroma hits you with hops and a boatload of citrus (mostly limes and grapefruit). Brett aromas of moist wood and some horsy aromas too.
On the palate it is razorsharp! All of the above mentioned elements are there in the taste plus a hint of sage and just a touch of rosemary. Modest bitterness mingles with firm sourness in a very dry and refreshing finale, that just goes on and on. I could still taste it as I went home 30 minutes after drinking the last sip.
If there is one thing that should be considered in developing the recipe for future brews, it would be that the alcoholcontent of 8% by vol. doesnít really add anything to the beer in terms of volume or complexity. I feel that the beer would probably be just as good at around 6% alcohol, but who knows?
But once again, Iíve found a new current favourite beer, and once again itís from Mikkeller.

Finish is dry, slightly bitter. Body is medium, texture is almost creamy soft, carbonation is medium. The winer in brothers duel.
