Yikes! This puts the "pale" in pale ale. Lighter than the average straw of most macro lagers and the head and feeding carbonation is distressingly soda-ish. At least the clarity is impressive.

I think this is actually a really fun nose. Yes, I just used the word "fun" when describing aroma. Farmhouse funk, strawberries and hay all hit my senses. Good stuff.

Wow! This manages to combine the funky, brett characteristics of a saison/wild ale with a huge, biscuity malt body. The malt actually lingers on well after that tartness has dissipated. The finish is Godly in its cleanliness.

Mouthfeel is appropriately sprightly and goes down easy. This is in that class with Hennepin as exceptionally drinkable saisons. Don't really understand the low ratings for this unless the "Belgian Pale Ale" tag this site has bizarrely applied to this beer is driving said scores. Label reads "wild ale" and it tastes like one.

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.

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.
