750mL bottle, split with manuchampions and Matts_Property, pours hazy golden orange with a big off-white head. Aroma of caramel, slight brett (though less pronounced than It’s Alive!), slight sour fruits and toffee. Flavour of toffee, bittering hops, with the brett pretty much subdued by the American hops. Complex and medium-to-full bodied. Definitely a step up from It’s Alive!

Boutip (6385) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 29, 2011
Bottle: Poured a medium orangey color ale with large foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma consists of Brett with light tartness and dry hoppy notes which are very well balanced. Taste is a complex mix between some Brett notes with some medium barnyard and light tart undertones with a great mix of floral and dry hops which are mix with a semi-sweet Belgian-style malt base. Body is slightly fuller then average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol notes. Very well brewed and while being different kind of remind me of the quality of Russian River beers.

(75 cl) Le liquide a une robe orangée qui s’embrouille. La petite tête blanchâtre s’effondre rapidement. Quelques traces éparses restent collées à la paroi du verre. Au nez, les houblons fruités traversent les malts caramélisés qui camouflent les brettanomyces. Un léger parfum d’épinette finit par se dresser. Les saveurs sont moins intéressantes : le choc des houblons, des malts et de la levure Bruxelloise me semble aller dans tous les sens. En bouche, le liquide a un corps moyen-mince avec une effervescence modérée et une texture plutôt mince. La finale est définitivement touchée par l’amertume des houblons et par une certaine aigreur de la levure.

Bouteille de 750ml. Bière ambrée, la mousse est blanche mais se dissipe rapidement. Le nez est un amalgame de miel, de houblon et de caramel. Les bretts sont aussi présents mais nullement dérangeant. La bouche est vive, piquante. La finale est tout une affaire de houblon et de brett. Le sucre est bien présent et quelque peu désagréable, je l’aurais aimé plus sèche.

Rasmus40 (20970) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 21, 2011
Clear amber with a big off-white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, karamel and rather hoppy - pine needles and grapefruit. Flavor is quite sweet and rather bitter. Dry and rather bitter finish. 200711

bax (1311) - Hasselager, Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 21, 2011
(Bottle 20/07-2011) Low lasting head, Belgium yeast and American hops (Just the way we like it)

omhper (25160) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 12, 2011
Bottled. Hazy amber, lively head. Grapefruity hoppy nose. Mid sweet. Fruity with a bit of sweat, funk and hay. Medium bodied with rounded mouthfeel. Grapefruity hops works as a blanket to cover the finer nuances of the beer and creates a long resiny bitterness.

GJF (1520) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - JUL 9, 2011
Not quite sure on this--it’s 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.

3.6
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 I’ve had from Mikkeller, but nice enough.

3.5
italarican (1551) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 5, 2011
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.
