UPDATED: DEC 19, 2015 RERATE - still a frightfully good beer, but needed a bit of a bump up on the overall stakes as the hops seem to be more punchy giving it a better overall feel. ORIG - What better way to celebrate todays Dem victory than drinking a fantastic ’Merkin beer! Yes I know its Danish but I needed an excuse to drink this beer as it is frightfully $$$ in NZ. The brett is not as pronounced in this beer as the Rayon V, but in this case the subtlety adds to the beers flavour profile.

Pours nice amber, sticky white foam. Brett nose with some yeasty funk and hoppy apple marmalade. Taste displays a sturdy body, that has been made lighter with brett and this funky-just-a-bit-sour-but-quite-bitter flavour. Feels like a funky brett barleywine, sturdy and hoppy. Dry brett bitterness in the finish, quite enjoyable actually.

Very nice Brett in the nose. Taste is a nice balance between hops, Brett-yeast. The Brett is there but not on the fore. Creamy palate.

Some taste of bittersweet fruits, strong bitter foundation, amber/red colour, citrusy hoppy bretty smell. An interesting one timer, but wouldn’t go crazy for another round.

Bottle, 11.2 fl.oz. Home. A sparkling mahogany amber clear beer with a big off-white foamy head ; good retention and lacing. Citrus, resin, herb, tropical fruits, "cider". Medium dry bitter, light warming, light sweet, light acid, light fresh. Medium body, light to medium texture, average good carbonation, dry warming acid finish. Overall, delicious, such a strong exotic Orval ; maybe slightly too strong after all...

Tap Takeover Mikkeller. Sorpresa. Me ha parecido muy compleja. Algo lupulada, algo de levadura belgas... La apunto para probarla más tranquilamente.

Genial y creativo homenaje a la receta de Orval. Compleja y divertida, jugando entre dulces, ácidos y amargos. Casi miel en boca, floral y herbal en nariz, cambiando al ácido de las bretts en el punto exacto para volver a un final seco de lupulos americanos

Lite tunn arom. Även kroppen är tunn men de smaker som finns är mycket trevliga. Hade vunnit på att vara lite fylligare. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fat @Mikkeller Haven. Bärnstensfärgad öl med inslag av rött. Smutsvitt skum. Doft av stall och övermpgen frukt. I smaken tar bretten inte lika mycket plats utan fruktighet och humlighet tar över.
