Not quite sure on this--its got several styles sort of mixed together. Bottle at Sanctuary. Floral nose. Sweetish beer, followed by a bit of brett flavor and a dry, bitter finish. Flavor drops off immediately. Some harsh edges to it.

dumontn (530) - St. Joseph, Michigan, USA - JUL 5, 2011
Pale hazy amber with 1 finger head. Aroma is slight balsamic vinegar, caramel candy, and citrus. Taste is citrus peel, funk, candy, and caramel. Body is medium with soft carbonation and a dry finish. Overall, Belgian strong ales are generally too yeasty for me but this slightly funky and sour ale is quite enjoyable. Not one of the best Ive had from Mikkeller, but nice enough.

On tap at Rattle n Hum. Nice yeasty flavor with moderate brett and caramel malt presence. Some more fruit and grapefruit hops in the finish. Fairly good stuff.

Sampled on 6/18/2011. This wild ale pours a medium orange gold color from a 750ml bottle. Large sized white foamy head with good lacing and nice retention. The aroma is fruity, sweet, tart and slightly funky. A medium bodied wild ale. The malts are fruity, sweet and dry. The hops are herbal and earthy. Lively carbonation. Fruit, tart and ever so slightly funky. Nice sipping beer. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is crisp and dry. Aftertaste is slightly tart.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUN 25, 2011
Draft at Reds. Poured a murky light brown color. The head was a few fingers high and light tan. Smelled of citrus rind, dark fruit, and caramel. No significant funk in the nose. Medium bodied and slightly sweet with fairly assertive bitterness that lingered. The flavors were similar to the nose with added pine and a fruit juice note reminiscent of tart orange juice.

dimenhetfield (2486) - , Florida, USA - JUN 15, 2011
Bottle at Local Option in Chicago. Dark amberish color, big head that just sits there forever. Sweet aroma, hints of candy, sugar and yeast. Flavor was like a typical dark Belgian, slight sugar/candy taste. Nothing over the top but a good beer non the less.

My favorite hops are in this beer. Has a nice hoppy taste and smell. Comes in a nice big 75cl bottle to share with friends.

BREWMUSKCLES (2646) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 11, 2011
smooth and a bit slick with mild carbonation that is soft. Fresh aroma and flavor of malt just from the Farm and a nice American style hop of Grapefruit and Pine that is just under the surface and pronounced until the finish. Good full body and light alcohol with mild sweetness delivered fresh at the Rattle and Hum NYC.
