Mikkeller Stick In The Ear
Served in a 12oz tulip glass at Beer Revolution in Edmonton pouring a golden orange color with a finger of white head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is pine with some earthy notes. Taste is a light fruity and malty sweetness with a pine and earthy hop bitterness. Medium bodied with decent carbonation. Overall, well crafted, but not the best in its category.

Mikkeller 1000 IBU
Pachnie karmelem, owocami tropikalnymi, grapefruitem. Aromat dość nikły. Bardzo silna, piołunowa goryczka. Trochę owoców. Wytrawne, ale niezbyt bogate. 1000 IBU to tylko chwyt marketingowy. Nic specjalnego. Ciekawe, ale mi nie smakowało.

Mikkeller It’s Alive! (White Wine Barrel Lychee Edition)
Une bouteille au Saint-Bock. Une robe jaune foncée qui ne fit que peu de mousse. Un nez de bois, de fruits asiatiques, de vin blanc et de citron. Une bouche bien construite autour du bois et du vin. Les litchis ajoutent une touche agréable. Pas trop funk, pas trop sucrée, pas trop acide. Agréable.

Mikkeller Vienna Lager!
Bottle. Murky amber colour, big off-white airy head. Smells of subtle floral & spicy hop. Brown sugar in the background. Light to medium body. The flavour is hoppy. The hops play well with caramel malts. I missed a bitter kick on finish. Otherwise good

Mikkeller Festival Special Edition 2016 - Stella 7
750, capped. Thanks, S! Pours a cloudy light amber with a loose white head. Mild funky nose, some hay, straw, and a bit of lemon and white wine. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Hay, straw, cheerio, and lemon/white wine on the mid palate. Not really getting much of the sherry, but in the background there is a darker sweeter note that must be that. Mild lightly funky finish.

Bottle, thanks bluus, 21/01/17. Pours a hale orange with a decent, off-white head. Aroma is orange, citrus, caramel, slight coffee. Taste is citrus, caramel, slight coffee. The combination doesn’t sound good on paper, but the coffee isn’t dominating, but a slight acidic addition to the flavor.

Mikkeller SpontanGooseberry
Bottle, 21/01/17. Pours amber orange with a small, off-white head. Aroma is very gueuze-like. Acidic, sour, bile, slight barnyard. Slight gooseberry aroma in the side. Taste is quite acidic, quite sour, some bile, the barnyard is quite behind everything. Tastes more like a gueuze than a fruit-lambic. The gooseberry hangs around in the background, giving it a slight, tangy twang, a nice twist, but is not as strong as the fruit/berry aroma in others of the Spontan-series.The gooseberries must’ve been of the green variety. Very nice. Very quaffable.

Mikkeller / Three Floyds Boogoop (Grand Marnier Edition)
Cloudy amber body with a decent beige head. Strong aroma of citrus, dark dried fruits, brown sugar and some caramel. Rather boozy and strong flavour of citrus, spices and dark dried fruits. Very sweet taste followed by rather heavy bitterness. Full body, syrupy texture, soft carbonation. A bit too boozy, but a nice one.

Mikkeller Hallo Ich Bin Berliner Weisse Raspberry
Can pours cloudy rose red with a huge lasting white head. Nice aroma, big fresh raspies, hint of tartness/wildness. Flavor is medium tart, very fruity, dry, puckering. Raspberries and floral notes. Medium bodied, soft carbonation. Very soft feel, light on the palate. Listen, chief, this is good and ticks all the boxes (most importantly the box on RB saying that I’ve ticked it), but for a beer literally claiming in German to be a Berliner weisse, this isn’t really to style and falls a bit short on the whole of what the ratings would add up to. Still good though.

Mikkeller Beer Geek Cocoa Shake
Bottle. Teku. Pitch black with moderate, thick, light brown head. Perfect lacing and good head retention. Moderate to heavy malty aroma - roasted, chocolate, cocoa. This is real cocoa bomb, smell like a bar of dessert chocolate. Taste is moderately to heavy sweet with moderate bitterness - slightly increasing thru the degustation. Medium to full body, oily texture, soft carbonation, finish is cocoa, semi-bitter, slightly ashy and vanilla. In summary like it is stated the cocoa is everywhere - aroma, flavor, finish. ABV is unnoticeable, drinkability is insane, mouthful should be thicker. The rate is solid 4.0, the beer is not insanely complex, but still damn good thing and that cocoa......

Mikkeller Beer Geek Vanilla Shake
Cocoa aroma. I’m not getting the vanilla. First sip comes as a shock. Felt like a drag on a flavored cigar. Overall very smoky. Vanilla comes after. Would probably be hard to down one up by myself.

Mikkeller Spontancarrot
Draught at BrewDog Sodermalm, 11/29/16.
Light golden with a bit of darker melon flesh/carrot skin color to it. Small, beige head rapidly dissipating. Good clarity.
The nose shows carrot, but it’s a soft, lightly sweet, juicy character instead of a more vegetal, earthy one. Against the Spontan base beer, I think this works really nicely, as it plays a good contrast to the light sourness and earthy, musty notes of that. Not a whole lot of sour ale character, but bits and pieces of lactic acid and very minor brett. No alcohol or flaw.
In the mouth it’s similar, with juicy carrot on the finish following a lightly tart, fairly malty but mostly well-attenuated body with light but ample carbonation. Some earthiness, even a touch of caramel and honey, with more carrot goodness and hints of lactic acid on the end. I quite enjoyed it, especially given how authentic the carrot comes across (as opposed to say, SpontanWatermelon....).

Mikkeller George! Barrel Aged (Bourbon Edition)
Bottle (undated) at Brew Dog Sodermalm, 11/29/16.
Very nice appearance, with some clarity visible on the maroon/burgundy-tinted edges. Dark mahogany body and a large, tan head atop showing strong retention.
The nose is a good mix of fairly strong, but not obnoxiously-so, bourbon and wood with plentiful roast, fudge and caramel, as one would expect. Seems to be quite sweet, but again, not nearly to the point of being put-off. Alcohol-wise, it’s there, of course, but isn’t intense or burning. There is a bit of strong ester, almost banana-like, on the very end, but this very likely could come from the bourbon just as much as it could from the yeast. Overall, a rich, rather intense nose that doesn’t quite go over-the-top.
In the mouth, it’s thick, though not syrupy, with an almost granular quality to it. Tons of rich caramel and fudge with a slight espresso hint, transitioning quickly to a more spicy, liquor-like bourbon character. Low carbonation but ample and mostly engaging for what’s there. Alcohol nicely folded in to the rich layers of bourbon, caramel, fudge and roast. Fair acidity on the end helps with balance, as well. Nice stuff, nothing really stood out to me, but it’s pretty under control for its size and richness.

Mikkeller Hop Series Citra
Ravfarvet og ufiltreret Single Hop IPA med mindre offwhite skumkrone på ungefär 1 cm. Sidstnævnte svinder til en mm's penge. Næsen mødes af appelsin og tropiske frugtnoter. Tilsat lidt fjernere fyrrenåle-aroma. Lækker frugtsødme åbner smagspaletten, men en sold og kraftig humlebitterhed kommer straks snigende ind og overtager. Smagen har klare appelsin- og grapefrugt-noter. Lille sødme, kraftig bitterhed. Frisk og sprød mundfølelse med en medium karbonering. Middel fyldig krop, tynd til olieret konsistens og en bitterbesk afslutning. Overall: Meget velbalanceret Single Hop IPA med en en optimal frugtsødme profil. Solidt håndværk! 40 cl på fad, 6.8 % ABV, nydt på Café Langebro på Islands Brygge i CPH. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not an over the top sour, its all about balance, some funk an a slight fruity underbelly. Nothing like you would think a collaboration between these two would produce. Fun, zesty, but not in the top tier.
