3.7/5  rDev -6.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: straw colored and somewhat hazy with white mottled head. Started med high but faded to thin (but still present) cap. High carb has kept head intact throughout drinking.

Smell: Light fruity/ spicy hop balanced nicely with wheat aroma. Brett a perfect third player - very present adding a nice depth to fruit and grainy aromas. Some fruity brett acidity is present, and very slight hint of funk.

Taste: Relatively high hop bitterness strikes first and initially seems unbalanced, leaving almost puckering bitterness. But not quite to that level, and as my palate warms to the beer the ibu's actually seem to do a good job of carrying this great wheat/ brett beer. A nice lemon like flavor emerges - but a complex fruitiness that I attribute to brett, which includes some peach and melon with moderate acidity. Brett funk is low, but that intriguing woody character that borders on funk is all over this beer.

Mouthfeel: Moderate body with creamy finish, boosted by fairly high carb. Somewhat puckering sensation I attribute to hop bitterness combined with brett acidity

Overall: A very nice brett beer with hop bittering a little higher than I would expect. But it works, for the most part. Brett character perfectly done, just the right amount of acid, fruit and earthy/ woody complexity.

12oz bottle into snifter. Have enjoyed this beer a few times over the years and am glad to finally have the time to make some notes on it. Nice rich fruit notes on the nose, hazy appearance, lively carbonation. Slightly bitter per style, signature Mikkeller attributes are apparent almost "Sessionable", very drinkable.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

12oz bottle sealed with yellow pressure cap.

poured into HF wine stem.

Appearance: glowing, brilliant, transluscent yellow bodied beer with 3 fingers of bone white head. Head has some staying power and lingers for a while, but eventually drops to an uneven cap. Tons of lacing all over the side of the glass.

Smell: oranges, tropical fruits, and fruity brett are the things that are abounding in the aroma of this beer. Slighty yeasty and bready aromoas are less intense.

Taste: the beer starts of with a mild generic bitterness that really doesnt have a flavor. Then some tangerines and tropical fruit notes appear. Fruity and earthy brett notes hit mid palate. Slightly sweet malt profile of wheat and wet hay. Maybe even a hint of farmhouse funk, but its very mild. A hint of honey sweetness and fruity esters. Not really any lingering flavors are noted in the aftertaste of this beer.

Mouthfeel: light bodied beer with moderate carboantion. well carbonated beer. very drinkable and refreshing. slightly crisp and very clean. It feels like its a delicate belgian beer.

Overall: This beer is tasty, but not over done. It would be a great beer to have on a really hot day. The brett is showcased fairly well and the hops slightly take a bit of a back seat in the overall picture of the beer. This beer reminds me more of a saison than any other beer style, which was something that I can appreciate about this beer. I liked this collaboration between Mikkeller and Grassroots. I think that this beer has a heavier influence from Grassroots than from Mikkeller.
