Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: MasterSki on 08-06-2012

This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Behold! The fifth collaborative effort of Three Floyds and Mikkeller. This complex ale is just the beverage for canal boat trips in Copenhagen or the brutal Chicago winter. This year’s offering will be brewed in both Europe and in Chicago. Look for both editions and the subtle differences in each. Cheers and thanks for supporting craft beer.

22oz bottles and draft only.

A-Cloudy orange, nice carbonation, one finger head that doesn't last long.

S-Lots of citrus notes, some lemon, orange and grass. Hops are present but so is some alcohol heat.

T-Starts with a lot of citrus, like the nose lemons and orange. Mild bitterness in the finish.

M-Medium bodied, nice carbonation with a velvety feel.

O-Was expecting a little beer but still a solid beer. It does pack a punch though. (411 characters)

(Served in a teku)

A- This beer pours a slightly hazy bright orange body with a gentle carbonation of tiny bubbles. There is a sticky antique white head that last and last

S- The blast of beautiful hops almost sting the nose with aromas of pineapple weed and pale green hop flowers that smell just pick of the bine.

T- The mellow creamy note blends to fresh pineapple weed and dandelion flower hop flavors finish to a dry mellow but full pungency that has some nice bitterness as it opens up.

M- This beer has a medium-light crisp texture with all the alcohol hidden somewhere.

O- This beer is lovely with lots of exploding hop aroma/flavor and a good depth to it aswell. There is no real bitterness and alcohol but just enough pungency to offset the floral character of the hops. I don't know where those 22 oz. went. (826 characters)

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

Poured hazy orange, with about a finger width head that dissipated to a light ring.

Citrus smell up front, almost matching the orang of the color, although mixed with almost a tropical fruit underneath.

Taste is hoppy but not somewhat mellowed. Not much in the way of maltiness. Fairly light and no real alcohol taste in it.

Mouthfeel is light but with a slighty stickiness to it. Smooth and easy to drink.

Overall, a very nice compilation, although it is fairly hard to pin it down in terms of style. Is it a barleywine, is it an IPA, is it rice beer. I guessI can say this: its FFF, its not normal, its good beer, enjoy it. (633 characters)

Aroma of sweat yet a wine taste. A big bubbly head and lots of lace. Gino’s bottle from 3 Floyds visit. A wild yeast strain, with bravo hops I think. Sweet and hoppy. A big mouthfeel, tangerine and grapefruit flavours. Not super drinkable.bee-aye 6600. (254 characters)

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

A - bright orange with a huge, white, frothy head that has good retention

S - citrusy, grapefruit, faintly spicy

T - bread, orange, grapefruit, spicy, earthy, faint sweetness

M - medium bodied, warm, smooth

This is intensely hopped Barleywine. This could fit in with almost any of the DIPAs I've had from FFF so far. I really enjoyed the intense hop character and the subtle malt sweetness. If getting FFF around here wasn't hard, I would definitely have this again. (470 characters)

Thanks to CuriousMonk for the trade. Cheers!

Appearance: Puors a thick orange/yellow egg yolk with a thin two finger head that dissipates rapidly to whispy one finger cloudy white head.

Smell: Belgium yeasts and some citrus

Taste: Wow this is nice and crisp and super refreshing beer. I cant believe it is 10.4% I want to drink this on a boat in the sun. Ok, so the taste. Sweet yeasty taste up front with some hops in the end. There are some citrus notes, orange peel, slight lemon peel.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a nice thick lasting finish on the tongue. slight dryness in the very end, most likely from the hops.

Overall: Not sure of the style but this is great. it says rice beer on the label but I thought it was supposed to be a bwine. Anyways, this is a really nice beer that is easy drinking and nice yummy subtle notes that keep it on point. Cheers (868 characters)

It's a beautiful bright orange-gold color that's a great contrast to the stark white head.

It's hoppy as hell with loads of citrus hops in the nose. It has the unmistakable 3F hop profile. Light pine and a slight grainy malt bill.

It's currently listed on BA as a barleywine, but this screams DIPA all the way. Grapefruit and orange hops with a nice bitter mouth puckering effect. It's got a slight fusel spice to the finish.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and I'd like for the carbonation to be dialed back just a little. Still a really good mouthfeel, though.

It's a really good offering that showcases hops, hops, and more hops. (635 characters)
