COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Editor’s note: 30 kegs of 30 liters produced for Mikkeller Bar in Copenhagen. Only available at this location (has also been available at Brasserie 4:20 in Rome).

Frank Boon writes: This is quite exeptional, 2 years old Lambic from a 112 HL shaved Calvados cask, foeder # 65, second fill. The Lambic has 7,21% Vol alcohol and has a nice oak/calvados character with a nice hint of gentian. It has a great drinkability. We will blend it in our regular Geuze by the end of the month (September 2010).
