Served in a stemless snifter.

Thanks to Florida9 for sharing this bottle!

Re-visiting this brew out of the bottle after a hazy experience with it from the tap. It pours a lightly hazy gold topped by a short finger of off-white foam. The nose comprises vague apricot, funky wheat, and Sorachi-style lemon zest. The taste brings in more of the same, along with a sense of fruity plastic and what may or may not actually be the flavor of wild rice. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, this stuff just ain't my cup o' meat. What I assume to be the wold rice influence just comes across plastic-y, ruining most possibilities of enjoyment on my end.

Split with angrybabboon.

Appearance: Slight has on a dark gold body. Head is bright-white and drops to a small bubbly loose collar. Spots of lacing.

Smell: Loaded with orange and grapefruit. Bright fleshy fruit. Solid malt backbone. Sweet bready elements. Some peach and tangerine. Pale and sweet. Some pithy bitterness in the back. Sweet. Pine and grapefruit rind. A bit of snappy cracker. Vague herbal spiciness as well. Straight up booze.

Taste: Orange flesh. Pithy grapefruit. Loaded with pine. Malts are sweet and biscuit. Some thin clean pale maltiness. Leafy and herbal. A ton of hop aggression. Touches of mint. Pushes toward marmalade. Pale sweet malt. Crackers and biscuits. Floral, very floral. Spearmint and fruit preserves. So much orange. Undercooked dough. Cooked pale grains.
Sharp bit of alcohol on the back.

Mouthfeel: Juicy medium body. Moderate to light carbonation. Some astringency.

Overall: Uh, it's aggressive.

Better than Boogoop, but that's about it. Hoppy and sweet. Boozy.

Appears a slightly cloudy gold with thin white head not much retention to speak of. The smell features notes of caramel, citrus hops, pine, herbs, and some artificial plasticy smelling quality that I'm not digging. The taste starts with some fruity sweetness followed by herbal hops which contribute a large amount of bitterness. Booze is present along with a acrid character that detracts from my enjoyment of this brew. Mouthfeel is surprisingly thing considering the strength. Overall, this is my least favorite of the "Goop" series.

Bottle: Poured a dark blonde color ale with a medium size foamy head with limited retention and some light lacing. Aroma of grainy cereal notes with quite bit of sweetness. Taste is also dominated by grainy cereal notes with some dry notes with quite a bit of residual sugar. Body is about average with medium carbonation and light warming alcohol. Interesting experience but just too sweet for me at the end of the day.

A- Pours a hazy orange in color, small, one-finger head.

S- Floral smell, a bit holly, with certainly a ricey backbone. It's a little acrid, not wholly disgusting, but not exactly pleasant.

T- Taste is again a little floral choppy and the taste of the rice permeates again, it's a tad offputting

M- Clean and crisp, full bodied.

Overall- I don't know, I wasn't thrilled with this.

On tap at the FFF brewpub.

From the menu;
Behold! The fifth collobarative effort of Three Floyd's 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. 10.4 % ABV. $9 snifter.

Well... That's a pretty useless menu blurb if you're looking for info about the flavor profile... But here we go.
Clear, honey-touched golden body with some orange hues. Ecru head of one fluffy finger. Great retention and nice lacing.

Not a lot of malt presence on the nose-- perhaps some crystal? I know this is brewed with rice, but I can't find it in the aroma. Smells hoppy though-- and some booziness coming across as well.

The flavor has a light sweetness up front, then dries out, shows off some big bitterness, and finishes dry and boozy. The hop flavors aren't nearly as prominent as the hop bitterness, but some floral and spice notes come through... Perhaps just a hint of citrus as well.

Feels pretty hefty-- ample carbonation though. Firm body with an oily lingering sensation.

Overall-- not the best from Munster... In fact, this is the worst of this collab series... Still, it isn't bad, it's just that perhaps my expectations were too high, or maybe I was hoping for a flavor wallop! This seems too boozy and bitter, and riceay have been a poor choice (to be fair, what else is left? They've done oat, wheat, rye, and rice?!)

Poured from 22oz bomber into Globe glass.

A. Pours 2 finger head. Smells hoppy pouring out of the bottle. Color is golden orange. Thick lacing. Good retention. Looks like a IPA.

S. Citrus hps are the predominant smell. Some piney hop aroma also comes out. Malt aroma is bready and biscuity. This really smells like an IPA in almost all aspects. Smells like a lot of 3F's other IPAs.

T. Really doesnt taste like anything. There is some faint hop traces lingering around, but not much. Really the only taste is a mouth coating sweetness. Really interesting in the fact that it might be the first 10% beer that has had the least amount of taste I have ever had. No alcohol trace. Very little bitterness.

M. Medium bodied. Lingering sweetness.

O. Not too impressed at this point. Bought 2 bottles, and really hoping something happens over time to turn the second one in to some sort of barleywine. Label says Rice Beer, which makes a little more sense why this is fairly tasteless. Will review 2nd bottle later.
