Notes: Eventyr begins as a carefully crafted Belgian Pale Ale. After primary fermentation is near completion it is moved into wine barrels and aged for 18 months with mango and Brettanomyces Clausenii. The finished beer is dry hopped with a combination of Citra and Mosaic hops before going into a bottle for conditioning.

Mostly clear sparkling amber with a loud fizzy head that dies to nothing.

There aren't a lot of wild ale's out there using mango but wow this smells very distinctly of fresh mango, maybe a little green with skin and all, and it's amazingly refreshing with some backing, sharp vinous oak and lemon.

Taste is smoothly sour mango, apple and lemon with a touch of Pilsener-esque qualities on the swallow. Eventyr is overall tart with complex oak and bitter Kalamata olive notes.

Crisp but light carbonation with a dry finish.

This was a hard beer to evaluate. First of all, on the bottle they state it starts out as a Belgian Pale Ale but somewhere along the line it lost the massive carbonation which I associate with them. And the color is darker and murkier than what I associate with a "golden ale" as the finished product is described on the label. Those caveats aside, once my expectations were recalibrated this tastes just fine with the mango and the Brettanomyces Clausenii yeast strains and hops interacting quite nicely. And this rewards being served warmer than just out of the refrigerator. Very nicely interesting.

Poured out of a 16.9 oz bottle I got at the brewery into one of my tulip glasses, this beer pours a clear, light to medium copper color. Not very carbonated, as there is only a medium sized ring lining the inside of the glass even when first poured with a small cluster swirl of surface foam. These have good retention, there's just not much there. Practically zero lacing whatsoever. Aromas of slightly toasted caramel malt along with musty funk and pineapple and mango fruits that give way to an earthy hop bitterness. The taste is pretty much the same, with some fairly toasted, caramel malt sweetness that gives way to pineapple and mango sweetness and tartness with nice bit of sourness and a nice, musty, barnyard funk flavor too. This is all rounded out with an earthy, floral hop bitterness. This is probably the most malty and most hopped bitter beer of this style I have ever had, which gives the flavor profile an interesting dynamic. The fruity flavors and funky sourness really come out more as the beer sits and warms up a bit. Good balance of flavors here. Has a crisp, yet smooth, medium bodied mouthfeel with light to medium carbonation. The flavors really linger on the palate nicely for awhile after each sip. Has a clean finish with a slightly dry after taste. An interesting beer here.
