Oz bottle poured into a snifter

A- A supremely hazy brilliant orange color. A quickly dissipating white head. Impressive alcohol legs.

S- A touch of a caramel roasted malt. A sour, overly ripened fruit like you would get from an aged IPA. A big breaddyness and tongue tingling sweetness. Kind of like a weird aged american barley wine.

T- A nice hoppy bitterness at first. A strange sour tangyness afterwards. A sour dark fruit flavor in this beer. Like old grapefruit and plums. An aged hop flavor from the hops as well. A somewhat sweeter body. A pungent flavor but hides the alcohol well.

M- A nice big body to this beer. Thick and well carbonated. Not too bitter or sweet.

O- Not sure what to think about this beer. Bottle dates would be very nice. This beer tastes like an aged DIPA with a slight sour tang. Doesnt really do it for me but overall, not terrible.

On tap @ Bar Mikkeller in San Francisco.

A - Cloudy orange/yellow with a thin layer of white head.

S - Sweet and boozy (in a good way). Grape musk, honey and some citric and floral notes.

T - Very strong alcohol presence that gives way to sweetness with honey, candy sugar, maple and lighter caramel. Drinks very big. A slow sipper.

M - Medium body. Light carbonation.

The lightest beer ever made and I must admit the previous reviews are very intriguing anyways it pours a golden yellow hue with a wispy one finger head and subtle lacing,the smell is coconut,booze,off fruit and a slight mustiness, the mouthfeel is full bodied with minimal carbonation and has tastes of boozy grapes,butterscotch,candy,guava and finished with a ripe fruit dryness and I mean as dry as a bone and overall another unique mikkeller beer that surprisingly works and for something that is 14% it hides it very well one of those beers u have to try for yourself cheers.

I had this on tap at Holy Hound, served chilled in a pint.

The color is a lightly hazed golden with thin white head which falls to a ring of small beads. The smell is mildly tropical with fruity element that is slightly citrus but tinged with sour white grapes and mild alcohol esters. the feel is not heavy, yet it has a strength and warming from the alcohol with mild spice and bitterness and very mild sweetness and carbonation.

The taste is good with some malt sweetness up front and a gently grassy and citrus tinged hop flavor with light tropical element with gentle tangy yeast accent and drying alcohol in the finish. Overall this was an interesting beer but it seems more of a concept than a truly great strong ale. The alcohol flavor comes through a little more than I like but the flavor is not bad.

Served in a snifter at Firkin.

"He's down by the creek, walkin' on water." I couldn't resist. Anyway, this stuff pours a clear golden-straw topped by a finger of off-white foam. The nose comprises boozy wheat, light powdered sugar, and a bit of vague fruit. Seriously, it's like walking into the produce section: you know there's fruit, but you can't figure out which ones are affecting your 'strils at any given moment. The taste brings in more of the same, with the booze certainly ratcheted-up and the odd fruitiness also gaining some heft. There's a touch of funkiness to the fruit now, but it's nearly negligible. The body is a straight medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta/kinda drying finish. Overall, an interesting beer, but not one I would say succeeds at actually drinking all that well in any real sense. I'm glad I got to try it, but I'm also glad that I'll likely never have it again.
