Perfect beer is what a man I know called this one. This beer has perfect flavor. You just don't do better than this. Bretty belgian hop perfection if there was ever such a thing. The brett is so alive out of the gate, and whatever the hops are give it this freshness sensation. I feel like i've been thrown into a bucket of light and nothing else with every sip. This could be the most refreshing beverage I have ever consumed above 5%. This beer is so full of personality; truly a monument to creative brewers everywhere. Crazy good. Crazy complex. Crazy satisfactory.

Mikkeller is breaking breaking barriers I thought were indestructible

this is really incredible beer, and i know i get accused of being a mikkeller lush, but this is aweomse stuff. belgian pale ale, the boring style moniker prevented me from getting this for far too long, finally a generous christmas gift from drlovemd87 put it in my fridge. the pour is a lightly cloudy amber color with an enormously excited off white bubbly head. the aroma on this is all brett, i had no idea this was a wild ale, and not being listed here as such or saying so on the bottle, i was confused. this is no doubt brett fermented, or at least conditioned on it, because its so dry and funky, beyond the capability of any cultured belgian yeast i know. the first taste indicates a level of refinement often reserved only for the monks beer. this is that level, and the cheeky trappist mock up on the bottle may not be all that far off in terms of overall quality. yeasty funk all the way through with a generous hop profile that colors the beer without tainting it. the malt is in the cara-60 range, but drinks much lighter with all the effervescent carbonation and the supremely dry finish. what i love about this is that its both refreshing and satisfying, both hearty and drinkable, both robust and subdued, its really wonderful. this is an easy to overlook brew, especially at its price, but trust me that you will not regret picking it up. brett all the way, hops next, just an exercise in brewing brilliance.

Pours an effervescent orange with 3+ fingers of cream colored head. Stellar lacing & head retention

S: Faint Brett notes, that pick up steam quickly, over-ripe peaches & little bit of pear

T: Some Brett, pears & wine sap apples up front. Peppery notes & a little bit of grapefruit as this warms, a little bit of peach as well, Chardonnay dryness too, plus pineapple. Finishes dry, fruity & with much Brett

MF: Light bodied, moderate carbonation, crisp

Drinks easy, I like the Brett aspect of this, too pricey to be in my rotation though...
