COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Editor’s Note: This is a special version of Saint Lamvinus that was bottled unblended (and uncarbonated) for Akkurat in Stockholm, Sweden (listed on the menu as 2004 Saint Lamvinus Still). Only 200 bottles were made. There were no distinguishing marks on them. This is NOT available in the United States nor in Belgium, unless from Jean Van Roy himself. Some bottles are available in Denmark from certain Ratebeerians, otherwise only from Akkurat. Unless you specifically were told that you had unblended Lamvinus, and it was dead flat, you had regular Lamvinus.

75 cl bottle, courtesy of Hildigöltur. Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Dry barnyard and mild wineous aroma. Sour and wooden flavoured with a distinct citric note into a rather dry citric finish. Made me shiver. Citric and wineous finish and dry.

A hazy red beer - ofcourse with no head. The is of cherries and grapes. While the flavor is more a blend of grapes and grapefruit - with a nice sourness - and a somewhat woody end. Thanks a lot Jacob for bringing this to Denmark.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 21, 2005
(Bottle 75 cl) Reddish, unclear - no head. Looks almost like a red wine - if it wasn’t for the cloudiness. Extremely sour nose - just to get close to the fluid is quite an achievement because of the sharp, vinegary aroma. Surprisingly soft considering the acidity. Sour flavour, yes - but not overwhelmingly so. Very interesting. 120805

Bottled (0,75 l, bottle 2042, 2004 vintage). I had this one while tbone_ was resting at the red boat, still there was some left for him (and Ronny) and some other people that happened to sit by the table while I was alone. Okay, so off for the rating. Cherryish red colour, not much head. Aroma is sour grapes, almost red wineish. Flavour is super dry and supersour, and some pleasant hints of grapes. Also some wooden hints. Totally superb thing! But was quite hard to drink one bottle yourself... I guess that was what the bartender meant when he asked how many glasses and I said one "Congratulations" was the answer...

omhper (19192) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 12, 2005
Bottled. Deep red, Acidic vinous aroma. Dry and citric with fresh character of fruity red wine, which seem stronger due to the low/non-existing carbonation. The mouthfeel is fairly clean, the acidity is Cantillon’s trademarked, and it has grape stone bitterness in the finish.
