Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

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.

ok so i was lucky enough to find this in my hometown, and i wasn't sure if $20 would be worth it.. and i was right, i probably wouldn't buy this again at that price.

A: golden hue with a white fizzy head.

S: citrus, hops, dryness.

T: very smooth for the amount of hops you can smell. taste is excellent.

M: sort of dry, fizzy, hoppy.

O: this is a great brew, like i said the price would keep me away from it again. $20 is a bit steep for what you get but if you have the chance to sample it then go for it because it has a great flavor and smell.
