Mikkeller - U Alright ?

Bloody right I am, combined with a lazy sunday and officially now on holiday I can sit back and relax for a couple of weeks. As I wrote previously posts will be less frequent over this period. Back to beer, yet another newish beer from the unstoppable Danish brewer Mikkeller, this time styled as a Belgian Wild Ale....

Big punchbowl fruit aroma from the pour on this with pineapple, citrus, peach, pine, yeast and floral hops.

U Alright pours hazy orange gold with a soapy bubble white head. Light and thin bodied, the intake is dry and with a touch of sweetness along with citrus, peach, pine and a sharp malt taste while the finish is bitter and dry. Floral hops and citrus linger in the dry aftertaste. This has a light and watery mouthfeel.

A whole bunch of flavours appear in this despite the lowish alcohol with the yeasty dryness present from start to finish. Light, refreshing and easy to drink I would have no problem drinking another few of these. Summing up, an excellent summer ale that might be a bit too light bodied for some.

This scored 7.5/10 on the ' by the time you have read this there will be a new one released' Beerometer.

Alc : 4.5%
Where to buy CPH : I was given this one as a gift but I have seen it in Kihoskh, Sønder Boulevard 53  and Ølbutikken, Istedgade 44, both Kbh V.
