draft @ Delirium, Bruxelles. Ambre, col pais blanc. Arme est lgrement houblonn, note de fort de pin. En bouche, une bire qui rappelle les aiguilles de pin avec qcq pices, houblon citronn. Palais offre une touche de th vert, feuille de tabac avec un fini sec et amer. Le tout garde une fine prsence de malt cara avec un fini qui est citrique et dans la ligne des houblons utiliss. Je ny ai pas vraiment not de brett et on a l encore une des nombreuses bires de Mikkeller qui mlange les styles pour finalement arriver toujours a peu prs la mme chose. Une bire dinspiration belge tirant un peu vers un profile amricain. Bonne mais sans plus.

grapengrain (124) - Havelock North, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 23, 2011
Big, rich, volopuous hoppy strong ale. Lovely spicy citrus American hop charicters interplay between rich malt notes and dirty, sweaty, horse-blanket bret notes.

POLK (2219) - Hrning, DENMARK - FEB 21, 2011
Nice strong scent and taste of American hops, right bitter and persistent aftertaste. One could well believe this is an IPA. Very nice beer. Should probably not be saved for as long that there says on the bottle. ( But you can probably not :-) )

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2012 750ml bottle, cavedirect. Fresh citrus and pine, but more in the aroma than in the taste. Light and refreshing, tangy and quite a tingle on the tongue. Very American in style. *Re-rated 31.7.12. Much more full-bodied this time around. Immediate warmth on the tongue and in the chest, big floral finish, lingering aftertaste and the brettanomyces very obvious.

Bottle 750 ml
Aroma crisp, clean, soft , light softness with slight sourness. Clean base. Neat. 8-
Appearance mid hazed amber with large creamy big top. Good lace.
Flavor and Palate : medium plus bodied, citrus tart-sweet character. Smooth , forward made, none of barbaric roughness here. Some peppery spice hints at finish. Quiet nice.

Sammy (11382) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 31, 2011
Cloudy yellow with off-white three inch head, looks great. Hop aromas are terrific, medium mouthfeel, very lacey. Citra hop taste, orange. A full bitterness, lots of hops. A tad of sourness-astringency. Kens bottle from the private order.

BINGEBOT (240) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 30, 2011
Orangy brown in colour. Light lacing head. Smells like a typical impact. Light, smooth, citrus. Thick and smooth mouth feel. Hoppy and lightly bitter. All the good of an impact with minimal bitterness. Really easy to drink. 8% really? Cant tell. Would recommend to any hop head, all the taste with minimum bitterness.

Tasted 2011-01-13. Pours semi-clear orange with yellow teinted white head. Grassy hop aroma. Very powerful. Bretts present. It generally tastes very fresh and hoppy. The finish is bitter. Very bitter. A little too bitter. Prolly unpleasantly so for some. For many. I just find a bit annoying. Its actually not the bitterness per say, that I mind. Its that very last impression of the beer. The finish of the finish. That very last split second of taste is not just bitter. Its harshly unpleasant. It only lasts for a short while, but its so anoying, I hafta drown it with another sip. And then it takes itself from there. Ill live.
