Mikkeller It’s Alive

Mikkeller It’s Alive, originally uploaded by adambarhan.

A: Very clumpy and thick head, leaving sticky lacing. Pretty standard for the style. Beer is more orange than pale yellow.

S: Aroma is tart, funky, citrusy and a touch of dirt. Definitely noticeable Brettanomyces, not too many Belgian qualities coming though.

T: Funky more than citrusy, almost moldy cheese in flavor. Has a bit of sweetness towards the end, but this one definitely leaves a Brett flavor in your mouth.

M: Thin and low carbonation, has a creamy mouth feel that just fades into funk quickly. Not overly enjoyable.

O: Not great. This makes the 4th or 5th mediocre beer from Mikkeller. I will stick to Draft Bear from them.

Serving type: bottle
