4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep amber pour with a lovely, thick, creamy head. The nose is quite lovely. Softly fruity with a touch of berry and pear as well as a lovely dry flinty aroma. Very minerally and quite hoppy with some nice noble hop aroma. The mix of Belgian spice and spicy/floral hoppiness is quite appealing. A bit of soft fruitiness on the back. As it warms up the fruit changes to become intensely jammy and strawberry-ish. Nice herbal bitterness on the back. It comes across like a Belgian IPA to me. Good-looking beer; good tasting beer.
Keg Half Pint at Cask Pub & Kitchen, Pimlico, London in Feb 2011 - Deep Amber in colour. Hazy. Very Spicy and Yeasty. Hoppy; piney resinous and spicy hops. Fruity; citrus grapefruit. Big spice/yeast hit. Quite bitter spicy fruity throughout. Nice Beer! (2011-02-12)

Fruchtig malziger Antrunk mit deutlicher Hopfigkeit. Wenig alkoholisch, was aber nicht stört. Blumig, etwas malziger werdend, dezente Kräuternoten. Rund, gut. 11/12/11/12/7/12

Sampled at the Richmond Gathering 20th! pours a clear copper amber with good tan head. Looks identical amongst all beers. Doughy and caramel and hoppy as hell on the aroma and flavor. It is VERY difficult to discern any noticeable difference. This one is a little more doughy and sweet than the others. The massive hopping pushes this into the DIPA category and i think the style masks any effects of the different yeasts. tia (2160) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - JUN 9, 2013
Bottle @ RG 20. Caramel with particles and foamy head. Smells sticky- caramel and floral. Tastes sweet and bitter. Light bitter finish. HopTsing (575) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - JUN 9, 2013
From the bottle poured a cloudy, brownish brew with a white head. Aromas and flavors of wood alcohol and malt. Ful bodied and acidy.

Richmond 20th. Medium orange. First of the series of Mikkeller Yeast beers. Doughy aroma, some slight tropical fruit. Flavor is a match, light caramel. Decent. Drake (13662) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 9, 2013
Bottle shared by Butters at the 20th Richmond Gathering. Pours a hazy amber color with a large foamy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of bready malts, citrus hops, mild spice. The taste is caramel malts, bread, spicy, citrus hops, mild fruitiness. Medium bodied. Japalo (1874) - DENMARK - DEC 26, 2012

Amber hazy. Two finger foam. Faint honey malty aromas. Sweet bitter taste with a bitter smooth oily peppery finish. Interesting knowlegde from this brew.
11.2oz bottle from Gomer’s Lees Summit, MO. Totally forgot I had all these. Pours a cloudy, amber-orange colored body with some particulate floating around. Finger-width, dense, frothy and foamy, beige head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is sweeter caramel and toffee malts, candied oranges, a light toasted bread, fruity peaches, and a touch of spice. Flavor is big yeast spices up front before the big caramel and toffee malts come in. Some candied oranges in the middle, bread, and a light banana note. Finishes pretty bitter and spicy, but fairly fruity and malty sweet before leaving a lengthy aftertaste with some alcohol warmth. Medium-full body and a creamy, medium-high carbonation. Overall, not bad, but not my favorite. A bit too spicy and bitter while never completely coming together with the big malts. Looking forward to the other 4 though. mcberko (17345) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 6, 2012
11.2 oz. bottle, pours a murky, opaque brownish orange with a medium beige head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, some candied sugar, syrup Flavour of Belgian yeast, slight spicy, and also sweet, with candied sugar and syrup sweet undertones. Quite malty and sweeter than the other beers in this series, but also with a medium-high hop astringency on the finish. Decent.
