beer_est_deus (743) - örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 13, 2013
Mycket oklar och rabarber röd med rött skum, och den har stått orörd i nästan en vecka. Doft: Röda bär, funk, halm, stall, rengöringsmedel. Smak: Blåbär (en regnig sommar så dom är stora, vattniga och smakar lite annorlunda), röda bär, citron, funk, vichyvatten. Hade önskat mer smak kanske, dock absolut ok och något man vill ha mer av.

Franzen (352) - SWEDEN - OCT 11, 2013
Bottle from systembolaget
Sour cherry and blueberry aroma
Nice red clear look with pink foam
Tastes like sour blueberry soup although the sourness is average to low for beeing a lambic.
It has got a light dry body with lively carbonation but the finish is yeasty and not particulary tasty.
A nice lambic, really like the blueberries but could have done without the yeasty finish
