Tasting Panel - I'm A Kombo
A colab between Mikkeller and Danish food designers IM A KOMBO
A hazy golden brew with a fine lasting white head, poured from a fine small fat German-style bottle - First Mikkeller in these kind of bottles as far as we know.
At first we must admit we didn't follow the serving directions as described on the label. Here it descrived that it was supposed to be served along with salty cucumber... we didn't have any.
Even though we couldn't match it with a real cucumber, we definitely got a cucumber bitch slap through the aroma. It was packed with cucumber. Along with that, the aroma had some floral and malty sweetness.
The taste is rather sweet and as a rare thing, the vegetable touch actually suits the beer. We got a faint impression of Christmas and thought of cloves, oranges and parabola.
It has a soft mouth feel that goes very well with the sweetness and ends op with a dry finish.
We really like this beer. It's very different, and we can´t think of a beer to compare it directly with. Highly drinkable and a true thirst killer.
