The name is appropriate. The appearance was harmless enough. A fairly clear orangish color with minimal head that disappears quickly. The Aroma was a combination of citrus and molded cheese. The sweet taste combines with the barnyard aroma to question whether this was an experiment involving animal products gone bad. Other aromas: mustard, feet, Sauerkraut, orange peels. Not a bad beer if you want something unique. Be prepared for what you are getting though. I was not.

On tap at Mikkeller Berlin. The Brett makes this really great. Aroma is very spicy, a bit funky, something mushroomy, sweet Candi sugar; nice complexity, lots of aromas. Flavour is also somewhat funky, nice maltiness, medium sweet, some acidity, spicy, refreshing. Brilliant!

Aroma: much sweeter than expected; candy and a little malt; Appearance: hazy amber pour with thin white head that lingers; Taste: maltiness a bit too much; results in an odd, unpleasant finish; Palate: heavy body with long, malty finish; Overall: would not get again.

Backlog, ocena przepisana z untappd, w ramach uzupełniania profilu na ratebeer. Ciężkie, słodkie, lekko apteczne, pozostawiające specyficzny posmak, kojarzący mi się z wizytą u dentysty.

SpringsLicker (3641) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 2, 2017
Bottle from fridge, maybe 8 yrs old? Clear deep copper with a minimal cream colored head. The aroma is spicy, flowery, sweet and fragrant. The flavor is softly bitter and dry with a finish that mirrors the flowery fragrance of the aroma. Nice beer.

Club cata Olut. Botella 75cl. Equilibrada. Aroma caramelo y cereal. En boca algo amarga, acida y seca al final.
