Beer poured a beautiful brown color with a nice tan head. The nose is a little shut down, but I do detect hints of citrus and a bit of caramel. Very nice malt backbone with a great touch of hops to balance. A little citrus as well.

backlog, Bomber bottle shared on the 4th of July. Pours a hazy red with small to medium sized head. Smell is belgian yeast, smoke, dried fruit, and hops. Flavor is pine, grapefruit, dark fruit, and candy sugar. Creamy mouthfeel with average carbonation. A nice sipper to mix in.

Bottle @ home. Aroma of lots of brett, light malt and some citrus. Clear amber with white head, lasting. Taste is light+ bitter, more brett and light sweet to dry. Medium body, oily/dry feel and bitter brett finish.

Versa nel bicchiere di colore ambrato, limpida; forma un’abbondante schiuma, bianca, compatta, fine e dall’ottima persistenza. L’aroma è dolce di malto ed alcol, ma che viene molto ben bilanciato dalla componente luppolata, con note di aghi pino, agrumate e speziate. Il sapore è agrodolce, di lunga durata, con note fruttate di pesca e pompelmo; aromi floreali interessanti apportati dai luppoli americani. Il lievito Brett porta una leggera secchezza e consente un’eccellente bevibilità; il corpo è medio, la carbonazione abbastanza decisa. Finale asciutto ed amaro.

Copid (54) - POLAND - OCT 14, 2016
Wygląd: Barwa miedziana, śliczna drobnopęcherzykowa piana oraz ładny lacing. Piwo lekko zamglone Aromat: Nuty winne, agrest, czerwone owoce, karmel, przyprawy oraz lekka chlebowość Smak: Wytrawne, wysycenie niskie, owoce w karmelu, chlebowość oraz przyprawy, goryczka średnia przyjemna. Ładnie ułożone Piwo mi nic nie urwało, ale generalnie fajna odskocznia od orvala. Na pewno jest inne ale w żaden sposób nie oddstaje. Polecam.

Tognetta (786) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - OCT 7, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2016 Âmbar avermelhado de leve turbidez, espuma bege de boa formação e média persistência. Aroma sem muita complexidade, basicamente malte caramelo, dulçor em primeiro plano. No paladar torrado intenso, malte em segundo plano, medio dulçor e amargor médios e bem distribuídos. Corpo e carbonatação médios. Final de média persistência, malte predominante, amargor lupulado com o aumento da temperatura fica mais evidente.

Pours. Dark copper color, slightly clear, with visually high carbonation and long lasting beige creamy head. Aroma reveals modern interpretation of its style: intense hop aroma, which takes on citruses, grapefruit, some stone, tropical fruits, supported with intense note of slightly sour grape (bretta). Flavor is practicalky the same as aroma, supoorted with crisp, slightly toasted note of malts, before finish steps forward gentle note of candy. Finish is dry, fruity bitter. Body is medium to full, texture soft, medium carbonation.

If Mikkeller has an underrated beer this would be it. This beer is the perfect execution of Belgian ale with Brett. The caramel/candy flavor balances perfectly against the peach/mango hop flavours, with the Brett slicing right through. A go-to beer for me, and by FAR the most fairly-priced Mikkeller beer relative to quality. I hope it stays that way!
