look: 3 | smell: 1 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 1

Sampled this for the first time with some friends last night. I apologize for the short review, but I could only bear a few sips of this one.

Poured into a snifter.

Appearance: Hazy, pale yellow body with a moderate-sized, white head.

Smell: This may be the foulest smelling beer I've ever encountered. Dirty diapers came to mind first, but as soon as somebody said "vomit", that's all I could think about. From the little bit of reading I've done, it seems like vomit-like odors result from problems with the yeast. Only one person from our group finished his ~2oz. sample, and he had to pinch his nose to do it.

Taste: Vomit doesn't seem to appear in the taste, but disassociating taste and smell is a difficult thing to do. Without inhaling, I tasted a pretty clean, grainy base with some light funk and lemon zest.

Mouthfeel: Light-bodied, generously carbonated, and sharp (tart). Seemed about right for the style, though I was only able to choke down two sips of this one.

Overall: I couldn't put down more than two sips of this. The smell was just too repulsive. Avoid at all costs!

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

Opened in 2013, pretty sure it's a 2011 bottle.

A - Clear, wheat yellow body with lively carbonation. Mixed bubble head had ok lace and low retention.

S - Lemony funk; bright acid, barnyard, and green apples.

T - Way off. Soapy, foamy flavors dominate the profile. Touch of pear, seltzer, and apple peel, but it's not enough to save the beer.

M - Light, brightly carbonated.

O - Nice ancillary characteristics, but unfortunately the soap flavor is extremely off-putting.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

my very first mikkeller!!!
pours a golden hued, semi-topped liquid.
smell is Belgian yeast, typical Belgian ale aroma.
taste is.... Belgian yeast.... candied sugars.... eh, it's alright....
overall.... it's alright.... typical Belgian flavored ale. so, if you click to all the beers mikkeller brews, then sort on the ratings, it's. like, THE LOWEST rated brew from them.... I guess it can only go up from here??
it wasn't bad. my 2 year love affair with Belgians is over. just way too rich. I still respect them all, but the ol' standby germans are particularly appreciated at this point although ive been bumping around with several other different things. still, I get the mikkeller concept. interesting.... cheers!

3.78/5  rDev +25.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 330ml bottle into a Fullers snifter glass. Labelled as "It's Alight!".

Pours a pale golden colour with a white head.

Smells very soft and floral, with a hint of sweetness.

Tastes again, very delicate but in a watery kind of way. Like sparkling water with a hint of sourness, light/sweet fruits - melon etc. Nice level of carbonation.

Overall I'm a bit torn. Decent but not strong flavours.

Poured from an 11.2oz into a Delirium tulip at low altitude in NY.

A: Pours a hazy light amber with a small cream-colored head. Decent retention, but no lacing to speak of.

S: Wheat malt character, slight barnyard funk and light floral notes in the background. Does not smell as "wild" as I would have expected per the description on the bottle.

T: Pilsner-like malt character up front gives way to a brief taste of yeasty funkiness, followed by a lightly bitter floral hop finish. Unexpectedly, the hop notes dominate the overall flavor profile; not particularly well-balanced in my opinion.

M: Light-bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation; watery feel.

O: An average brew overall -- certainly not among Mikkeller's best offerings.

Drnk from my Duvel tulip

A - Pours a clear copper colour with an off white head that reduces quickly to a film

S - Small apple and pine

T - Up front some nice grains and small hop the finish is a little dry.

M - Light to medium body

O - This beer syas nothing spectacular. There are better offerings from Mikkeler, although it would make a decent session beer.
