11.2 fl oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. I recently stumbled upon a bunch of these beers lately, and this is going to be my second beer from the Mikkeller Single Hop series. I just drank Duvel Tripel Hop 2013 Sorachi Ace yesterday, so I figured I would try out this version to see if I notice any further similarities.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter glass.

A - Pours three big fingers of creamy fluffy beige head. Body is a beautiful light brown / dark burnt sienna orange color with lots of sediment floating around the glass. Looks great. Some nice thin rings of lace.

S - Wow, beautiful aroma. Creamy smooth caramelized malt presence, Belgian yeast / funk, and lots of earthy wood / vanilla character, with an almost slight hint of bourbon barrel in there. Smells truly wonderful.

T - Taste follows the nose, smooth caramel malts, earthiness, leafy herbal hops, and a creamy twiggy vanilla / wood character reminiscent of some nice bourbon barrel aging. I am definitely enjoying this one.

M - Feel is smooth and creamy. A bit of sticky sweetness lingering on the palate, but an otherwise clean and easy finish. Perfect low carbonation.

Overall, I thought it was a more enjoyable beer than the other Mikkeller Single Hop beer I tried yesterday, Mikkeller Warrior, and definitely a wonderful way to showcase the beauty of Sorachi ace hops. WIthout question, this is a beer worth trying if you can get your hands on some.

Mikkeller Sorachi Ace ---4.5/5

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.25

Parallel with the Willamette.
Loight orange color.
In the smell, some sweet royal jelly, grassy touches. Some butter, and chives notes.
This one covers the maltiness more than the Willamette.
Frankly, not a great taste.
Some harsh hop in the aftertaste.
