3.76/5  rDev +1.9%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Was pleased to pick this up from a local L.A. bottle shop for $6.00; Mikkel is my favourite brewer in the world. Brewed/bottled at De Proef. 6.4% ABV confirmed. "Pale Ale." 11.2 fl oz brown glass bottle with yellow label and standard gold pressure cap served into an Oskar Blues pilsner glass in me gaff in low altitude Los Feliz, Los Angeles, California. Reviewed live. Expectations are sky high given the brewer, but then again I've never had a great sour from him.

Imported by the Shelton Bastards. That explains the price tag.

Served straight from the fridge. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: Pours a five finger beige colour head of nice cream and thickness, and very good (5+ minute) retention for the above average ABV. Body colour is a clear translucent pale copper. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show. Fair lacing as the head slowly recedes. The head isn't all that frothy, but frothiness isn't expected given the style. A good appearance, if not unique or special. I'm looking forward to trying it.

Sm: Bread dough, brettanomyces, pale malts, biscuit malt, light - very light - sourness, biscuity yeast, salt, wheat, muted dried fruits, and more bread. The bready/dough character is dominant. An intriguing, eclectic aroma of moderate strength. It's certainly different. I don't detect any alcohol.

T: Very bready, with notes of salt, pale malts, and biscuit malt dominating. Light clove. The salt is perfectly integrated; I've never even had a gose that used salt as well as this beer does. Clean and pleasant. I get very very little sourness, but it's well balanced and built for a pale ale with strange yeast. Yest character is only biscuity; there's no funkiness or sourness. One of the more complex pale ales I've had. It's nicely executed and brings a lot to the table. I don't know that I've ever had a beer quite like it. It's like a gose meets a bready pale ale. Has good body and flavour.

Mf: Soft, smooth, wet, chewy, and pleasant. Clean and enjoyable. Complements the flavour profile nicely. Refreshing.

Dr: The salt encourages the next sip, and the pale malts deliver refreshment. It's quite drinkable in that regard. I'd consider this a strangely brewed pale ale, and as such it's quite good. Is it worth $6.00 a bottle? Nah. I quite fancy it, but I doubt I'll be having it again. Still, at a lower price, it'd be a staple. A fantastic pale ale from Mikkeller that will undoubtedly be overlooked by many. I love the experimentation and the result is fantastic.

Low B+

4.18/5  rDev +13.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pour at Mikkeller and Friends in Norrebro, Copenhagen.

A: Copper and orange with a thin, white head.

S: A medium brett, earthy funk with a side of orange zest.

T: The Brett shines through with a farm-like, light sourness. The hints of citrus balance this beer out very nicely and make it highly drinkable.

M: Bright carbonation comes alive making the beer almost pop.

O: A great use of this awesome yeast. Really showcases the yeast in a delicious, balanced ale. Would definitely order this again amongst a list of other beers I love.

Pours a golden orange hue with a fluffy two finger head and lacing everywhere,the smell is caramel malts,Brett,barnhouse funk and rockmelon,the mouthfeel is light bodied and could be thicker with tastes of rockmelon,funky funk,Brett,lychee which is all supported by a nice toffee backbone and finished with a soft tartness and overall it's quite the quaffer but nothing out of this world cheers.
