500ml bottle at Skarven, Tromsø. Semi-hazed, amber body with a orange shade. Bubbly, off-white surface. Dry acid fruits to the nose. Lemon, tart berries, overriped blood oranges and green apples in a taste profile where the acidulous structure is not overdone. Very refreshing (Tromsø, 28.08.2010).

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Pours a good-looking slightly hazy deep amber body with a small, off-white head. Nose is funky barnyard yeast; citric peels and hay, with small hints of basil and wet leaves. Taste is quite mellow for a lambic; oaky wooden notes comes first, followed by stronger citric yeasty tones with hints of mustard and balsamic. Medium lengthy sour and dry bitter aftertaste. The farmhouse yeastiness from the initial aroma seem to more or less vanish, but the sour citric-like profile coupled with the barrel-aged wooden aromas does the trick. A very nice lambic from Haandbryggeriet - give ’em a big hand now! :-)

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled, thanks Rune! Hazy amber, no head. Sweaty citrus mixed with lingonberries in the aroma. Lemony sourness with some malt sweetness undeneath. Chalky with blown up, almost plastic mouthfeel. Notes of canteloupe with a peculiar funkiness. Hugely interesting, but more confusing than tasty.
