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.

Bottle purchased from Liquor Express in Huntsville, AL.. don't know how a 14% ABV made it into AL, but no complaints :) Poured into a Stella Artois chalice at about 40 degrees on 3/30/13.

Has a good golden color with not much of a head to it. Can see some carbonation in the glass.

I actually detected some complexity on the nose but it was kind of understated. I could detect a faint hint of booze, but definitely smelled some citrus. Oranges, lemongrass, but not "in your face" and overly bold about it. I

Taste.. first couple of pulls had a definite citrus and sugary feel to it. Lemongrass, oranges, floral notes, and a little bit of booze. For being such a high ABV, the booze taste is actually pretty minor.

Mouthfeel: I thought that it had a lighter mouthfeel especially considering everything that's going on here.

Granted a bottle of this stuff is going to set you back, but I actually think it's getting some underrated reviews here. Very drinkable but you can definitely detect some complexity.

Reading the other reviews below I can hardly believe we are talking about the same beer. This beer is dry as a bone, the first tastes are high-zoot dry champagne, dry cider, dry mead. No hops evident to me at all, the high alcohol sweetness that should be there is gone in one second. I served this to over 50 people tonight in a fairly sophisticated beer crowd and got opinions from about half of them. They all agreed it is an extraordinary beer, not really like anything else we have ever had.

This is a very unique beer; I hardly can call it a beer but leaning towards a Belgian Strong Ale since there are no grapes, apples or honey in this. Again, I don't really think there are any hops either, IMHO. What is it? 1 IBU? Fantastic dry finish, just wipes the palate clean, and some nice bubbly carbonation to tickle afterwards.

What an incredibly odd beer, I like it, hope you get the chance to try it.
