4.63/5  rDev +26.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pours a hazy golden brown with a white head that settles quickly to about a half finger. Nose is tropical with mango, papaya, some yeasty bready notes, a little musty with that Brettanomyces funk, a hint of banana, some citrus and grapefruit. The taste is orange, papaya, grapefruit, tropical notes, a bit of pine bitterness, some definite funky Brett notes but not in that typical musty kind of way. Its more bright and fruity. The mouthfeel is kind of light with a good amount of carbonation. This is definitely a delicious wild ale. I'm loving these sours and wild ales, I wish AZ got more of that style. Mikkeller is awesome, I don't think I have had anything bad from him.

XicanoBeerRun came through with another goodie. Psychedelic label and clever name aside, I have no idea what I’m getting into here. But sometimes it’s good to come in with no expectations.
This beer pours with virtually no foam. It’s cloudy, hazy, yeasty. Split a 12 ounce bottle with XicanoBeerRun and we both commented how the same beer looked so different in our separate glasses. Who poured first? Who got the last of the bottle? Here it makes a big difference.

There’s such a vibrant, yeasty, estery aroma on the nose. Really, it gives meaning to the term ‘bouquet’. And what a wonderful bouquet it is! Really, really appealing.

The flavors carry though to the palate. It’s a complex beer, but in a good way. Great body, wonderful mouthfeel, and I don’t get a hint of the 9.30% abv in the least. A light summer fruitiness comes through on the palate, but not sweet. More on the savory side.

This beer tastes terrific. Great finish, almost oaky or barrel aged in its smoothness with a bit of funk to keep it exciting. Well-balanced. It’s complex but rewarding.

I can't quite believe this gets only 82 at the moment.
Pours with a nice creamy head that stayed all the way to the last sip.
Beautiful, fruity aroma and the taste is rich and complex.
ABV not dominant ... In fact is well disguised
I loved it and will definitely have again.

Yowch! This is quick becoming one of my favourite beers. I think I'm extra partial to the flavours of Special B malt, so this funky little monster gets extra love from me.

Pours a slightly boggy amber-brown with a thin well-off-white head leaving lacing. Big caramel notes in the nose. Big caramel flavours up front give way to a strong prune/dried fruit presence and ending with a soft brett/Orval note that I imagine will grow if cellared. Carbonation is soft and pleasant, and I had no problem whatsoever finishing a whole 750 by myself in a short time.

A very, very nice Belgian-style strong ale that I'll be drinking regularly if it continues to be available.

Saw this on the shelves locally in 12oz bottles today and HAD to nab this long time want. Perhaps slightly different than the larger bottle, this one says 9.4% ABV and Belgian Wild Ale.

a - popped the bottle and filled my captain lawrence tasting tulip. The beer had a really nice amber color to it, pretty murky but somewhat transparent with a nice frothy yeasty head. Lacing clung to the glass nicely.

s - very nice citric candy and banana clove notes. A bit of funky bubblegum and nice to style. Tartness starts coming out as I swirl the glass and it opens up, but nicely balanced with the other flavors.

t - peppery bubblegum. very faint sweet tart. sublte sweet tart start with subtle bittery finish. I quite enjoy this beer...it is different, but the flavors really work for me...mostly because of the softness and sutbleness.

m - very soft with good carbonation (as I started drinking it, I even started to see the carbonation). I really like the way this beer sits and feels. It is smooth, even, and subtle.

o - I didn't really know what to expect with this beer being called a BSPA or a Belgian Wild Ale and it sort of fits somewhere between a cross of a wild ale and a belgian pale. I think the best way to describe this would be bubblegum beer (I can already see the collaboration with Short's and this recipe). Mikkeller has always been a hit or miss brewer to me and this is a beer I get...this is a beer that is a hit for me. Love it (going to try to stock up on a few of these while they are still on shelves).

A really nice beer we have today.

Clear amber colour with a big, creamy light tan head. Great lacing and good head retention.

Wonderful funky aroma with a nice balance in there and some spicy clove notes showing that the base beer is lovely too.

Wonderful balance of malt and funk here with the sweetish malt being offset by earthy Brettanomyces character. A hefty dose of hop bitterness cleans out the palate. Great.

Medium body with moderate carbonation. Nice.

A delightful beer. Full of flavour and well developed Brett character.

12oz bottle into a tulip glass

$5.99 at Dicicco's in Brewster

A- Pours a nice dark orange brown with no head at all just some big off white bubbles clinging to the side of the glass. Not much retention and small alcohol legs that don't stick around to long.

S- Wow that smells absolutely awesome! Big Belgian notes up front with yeasty bread, banana, and clove spice that's quickly followed by a nice hint of funk or barnyard. Definitely some alcohol in the background but no to overpowering, also has some hints of floral hops or grass.

T- Nothing like the taste but in a good way. Up front I get lots of candied sugars with hints of dark fruits like raisins and plums. As it start to go down the throat the bitter grassy hops come out and totally change the overall flavor. Finishes off with a slightly tart funk from the brett but nothing to crazy. Very strange considering the aroma was a lot more typical belgian like but the taste is more dark fruity and bitter.

M- Medium bodied with moderate carbonation and a decently bitter and slightly tart finish.

SkÅL!

Another Mikkeller.. this one is listed as a BSPA and it is.. with a healthy dose of Brett. I had one bottle the other night but didn't review. I enjoyed it, though.

A- Big fluffy head, slightly off-white (eggshell) and a nice orangey base beer with good ruby and tangerine highlights. A bit hazy.

S- Fruity- very much so. Very ripe strawberries and a bit of peach. Also.. brett is here. For such a young bottle I'm surprised at it's strong presence. Not complaining, though... One of the best aromas I've ever encountered.

T- Alcohol is here, but in a bit of a boozy (good) way in the background. Vinous fruitiness (hmm) and a bit of what tastes like champagne yeast. The brett is , not as powerful as it was in the nose. Hop bitterness comes through and is a bit disarming at first.. kind of surprised me. I usually like hops.. and I like them here.. but I think some time to smooth them out would do this a favor.

M- Crisp... great carbonation, full body, nice complexity.

D- High. ABV is not really evident, even though a trace of the alcohol is noted in the flavors it works well. Easy drinkin'. I suggest letting this one go for a while though, I think it has really good potential.

Not as good as It's Alive! or USAlive! but this one is still

330ml bottle. Tulip glass. Enjoyed on jun´12. Deep amber color. Haze. Off-white,close froth. Copious web on sides & good retention. Aroma profile shows sour fruit, moderate maltiness & wild yeast. Mildy sweet toasted malt, fructose & kind warming alcohol at first sip. Light to medium body, moderate to low carbonation. Sour/sweet palate & acidic fruit flavor –pears & Granny Smith apples. Oily texture. Dry sour/low bitter finish. Refreshing & complex. Comment: I absolutely disagree with considering this beer into Belgian Strong style. Nice spot of new wave Strong Flanders Red and/or Farmhouse style.

From Jim's. BB 2018.

Pours a murky copper. Sudsy coarse very off white head stays for a while, but then subsides to scummy film. Lace everywhere

Aromas on the nose!! Brett, vinegar.... Then a little Christmas cake.

Taste is sour up front then the complexity of the BSPA kicks in. Very integrated. Hints of dried fruits, raisins, sherry. On Belgian style.

Mouthfeel quite light for style, but ABV warms.

It is what is says it is... Belgian strong with Brett. Nicely done Wild/Sour hybrid.

Pours a translucent golden orange with great head/lacing.

Smell is big, big Brett. Also some spices behind that. Caraway, fennel. Pineapple, dates, leather. Also has lots of malt, verging on a barleywine.

Taste brings Bretty notes, booze, some sweet notes, more pineapple, Christmas cake.

Mouthfeel is big, Bretty bitter and sweet.

Massively, massively complex beer. Inspired combination of spices, malt and Brett. Halfway between a spiced barleywine and a sour ale, love to see a BA version of this.

On tap poured into a 12oz glass.

Pours a nice deep amber color with a small light yellow head. Nose is a bit mild but it malty and slightly funky, although it's certainly not in your face about it.

Taste is really quite good, there's a nice light funk that's subdued enough to make this deadly drinkable - 9.4%, wtf?! This drinks like 6%, be careful. There's some grassy, tangy lemony notes that come trough pretty strongly on the finish. Mouthfeel is fairly light but creamy and a tad bit sweet. Super well balanced, one of my new favs from Mikkeller!

Poured into an oversized wine glass.

Appearance is a cloudy orange color with thick off white head that fades to a sticky ring around the head.

Aroma is of sweet fruit and candy. A little whiff of malt also.

Tastes of lemon citrus and a little sour apple. Sweet spice profile and a little metallic.

Mouthfeel is light with good carbonation.

Overall is a good beer I'd probably try again.

Poured from a bottle into a goblet glass.

Look - reddish color, somewhat murky, with about half a finger of foam that dissipates quickly.

Smell - somewhat spicy/hoppy in smell.

Taste and Mouthfeel - definitely spicy at first, kinda like a pumpkin spice. The middle and finish is filled with an earthy muskiness. Very interesting taste in general. Texture is very well balanced.

Overall - very interesting brew! Well worth the try.

A- Poured into a DFH snifter... starts with a nice thick head with good retention, leaves some lacing. Beer is a murky copper color

S- I was getting wiffs from a few feet away as my gf poured it. Has a strong sweet, tart smell... apples, plum,dark fruits

T- Tastes good... Sweet candied sugars mixed with pale malts. Starts of sweet and finishes with a mild bitterness

M- Medium body with light/medium carbonation... very smooth and sleak with a nice crisp finish

D- Very tasty and easy to drink... not so easy on your wallet though. Was definitely worth the money... dangerous how easy this one goes down with a 9%+ abv

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Very likable sweet funky ale.

Presentation: 12 oz brown capped bottle. Retro psychedelic label in magenta, yellow, and light green. Offers a barely legible bottling code in the back. Notes style (Belgian Wild Ale) and Alc. by Vol. (9,4%)

A - Hazy medium to deep amber pour. Rich foamy head, medium retention, nice surface memory and good lacing. Quite the looker with that towering head and the swirling haze...

S - Plenty of barnyard notes in the nose, grassy, funky, dashes of caramel...

T - Nice funky sense, the barnyard shines with a great range of yeast, a bit leathery and… quite a bit of caramel, sugary actually… quite intense and woven throughout save in the end with a light citric touch picking up the brett and bitterness. Grassy punctuation throughout.

M - Medium body and carbonation, smooth flow with a hint at a dry finish.

O- Too good a flow. It went down so quickly, without any notice of the Alc. Vol. that it is either it is too dangerous or I was having a quick brewing epiphany. Probably both… And the more reason to long for another.

Notes: Another good take by Mikkeller. Sure, one needs to appreciate a rather sweet bready ale, but if that is the case this is quite a treat.

The golden amber color was deeper in shade than most BSPAs, and the the head atop was three finger thick. The smell was not typical of a wild ale, as I did not get any Brett character via the nose. I could only detect sour cherries and honey via the nose. The taste was similar to the smell, with honey like sweetness, and green apple sourness. There was a bit of an unexpected hop bite to this as well. The body was on the light side of medium, and aided in the quenching nature of the beer. The alcohol was very well hidden, and the strength lable was shocking compared to the experience.

Bottle shared by Lee - thanks!

Pours a hazy copper color with a one-finger off-white head. The head recedes into a patchy layer on top leaving solid lacing.

Smells of a combination of grainy pale and caramel malts with good amounts of what I've learned to associate with Wild IPA's - funky hop aromas that smell slightly like gummy bears. As the beer warms more funk wafts out.

Tastes similar to how it smells. Sweet malt flavors kick things off and are joined by good amounts of grapefruit flavors tempered by a very mild funkiness. As the sip progresses the funkiness takes over a bit and carries through to a mildly bitter ending.

Mouthfeel is good. It's got a solid thickness with smooth carbonation.

Drinkability is also good. I finished my glass quickly and could have another with no problem.

Overall this is a middle-of-the-road Wild IPA - it's far from being bad but it's also not quite over the "above average" hump. Worth a shot, especially if you like the combination of brett and hops.

4.1/5  rDev +12.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

a murky amber/brown with a small white head that quickly settles to a thin film, but leaves chunks of lacing. an appearance that is good for the style.

kind of an odd, yet enticing aroma that is sweet and tart. the candy sugars definitely make their appearance here, while the brett sticks in the back, but definitely counteracts the sweetness nicely.

again, nice balance of sweet and tart, but then, out of nowhere comes an odd bacony/smoky/funky/earthy/fruity flavor that is very unique, obviously hard to describe and tasty. The sweetness prevails, but the funk and tart balance works well.

nice medium body with fluffy, yet light carbonation, but without that tingling and drying in some of the better sour/funky/brett beers.

nice, unique beer that may disappoint the sour fanatic or belgian fanatic or sweet malt fanatic, but it implements a bit of many different styles to create an overall good beer that I would gladly drink again.

11.2 oz bottle poured into a Swiss wine snifter.

Pours a thick, slightly swampy/murky rust-tinged orange full of very large bubbles (think soda water). A scrappy head consisting of just a thin layer of suds on the surface forms.

Wait... did I just pour a glass of perfume? Wow. This smells like a hoppy, flower-petal infusion. It almost reminds me of grandma's perfume, or concentrated flower petals with a little synthetic quality thrown in. A little swirling brings up so of the more common brett characteristics, including a little funk.

The flavor isn't as crazy as the nose suggested, and consists of a hoppy saison/Belgian sort of base topped with brett. Whatever particular strains of brettanomyces were used, they seem to favor the floral side instead of the barn/horse side, which is interesting. There is some nice hop leafy flavors and a moderate dose of malt underneath. I think the "wild" flavors are nicely integrated and complete this flavor nicely.

The mouthfeel is surprisingly smooth for the big bubbles seen in the pour, and the overall weight of this beer is felt in the mouth much more than it is tasted. Good work here as well.

Conclusion: Many of the reviews on this site say this beer is out of balance. This is yet another example of why I try not to trust the collective opinion of BAs too much, as I find this beer to be quite balanced and I enjoy the brettanomyces character a lot and feel that it complements the other already solid flavors. This is my first Mikkeller beer and won't be my last.

Poured from a foiled, (synthetic) corked, and caged 750ml bottle into a Mikkeller tulip.

Back label dated 16/12/14

A: Pours a dark amber hue. Chill hazed at first, this gains some clarity as it comes up to temp. Successive pours are perfectly cloudy. Perched on top is 1 1/2 fingers of sticky eggshell head that leaves some pretty lace patterns on the inside of the glass.

S: Interesting aroma. Initial pour was loaded with grapefruit hops. As it began to warm, out popped some pretty healthy Brett along with toasted caramel malt, honey, tangy berries, and a hint of vanilla.

T: Taste follows the smell pretty much lock step. Maybe with a tad more emphasis on the tropical fruit hops (mango, pineapple, grapefruit). Finishes with a tongue-full of spicy Brett.

M: Starts slightly sweet with tangy fruit overtones. The middle is where the dry, spicy, and peppery Brett presence starts to be known and that continues on into the relatively long finish. Prickly white pepper feeling on my lips.

D: Like other reviewers here, I too expected more of a funky, stinky, sour type of characteristic. What I had to do was forget what I read on the label (Belgian Wild Ale) and how it's categorized on this site (BSPA), and take it for what it was. Hoppy and slightly funky. I like what they were going for. Maybe laying a bottle of this down for a couple of years will bring out some really musty barnyard skankiness or a bit of tart fruitiness?

Brewed by Mikkeller at De Proef Brewery in Belgium.

Bottle purchased at the Cracked Kettle in Amsterdam. Bottle consumed today with Beerloco and Mrs. Beerloco.

750ml bottle with easter eggs and bunny rabbits all over the label.

Appearance: golden orange body with 2 finger foam crown. Medium retention and decent amount of lacing.

Smell: Apricot, belgian yeast (brett), ginger, and an unsweetened lemon note.

Taste: Sweet hoppy fruits with and sweet malt. Lightly sweet finish with apricot and resiny hops throughout.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and slightly chewy.

Drinkability: Good considering its 9.39% abc and slightly chewy.

This was a nice beer that I was happy to have had the pleasure to both share it with a fellow BA and to add it to the board!

Poured with a nice fine cream colored head and some lace. Color is a cloudy amber. Aroma is yeasty spice malt and brettanomyces. Flav is like aroma. Was expecting more but seems kind of shallow. Body is good and so is carbonation. Finish is like flavor. Session for those who like this, but not me. Maybe an apertif.

S butterscotch, some grapefruit a little booze and some funky earthy yeast

T not far from the smell but with some spicy hops and its a little sweeter then it smells

M fairly thick and pretty smooth considering the high alcohol, less carbonation then was visible but still far from flat

D quite unique and each sip left me thinking and the beer was gone before I figured it out

A heavy orange appearance, similar to some of the better ipa's you're used to seeing if you're in the elite ipa scene. .5" of head on the top of it, I thought the retention was average, lacing a little bit above average. Different aroma of bright fruit, zest, not really offering anything in the way of funk though, which is a wash, sometimes funk is good, sometimes it ain't.

There is more brett and funk in the taste and mouthfeel though. Fruit is still there, tropical and citrus. None of that dark fruit shit. Hides the alcohol extremely well, this was a fun beer to drink. The body is perfect, not heavy, not light, some bitterness, from a little more hopping than I expected. What a hodgepodge of a bit of everything. Some tartness like a sour, some sweetness, some brett, some hops. . .

This beer kind of came and went really quickly in Reno, and I haven't seen it since. I would pick another bottle of it up, and age it next time. One of the few beers that truly defies categorization, but not for the sake of it, one that can pull it off.
