Hantverks blabarspalbic. 330cl bottle thanks to timo for sharing at out picnic at skansen. Perfect. surroundings and great company... Pours a deeper shade of garnet red and topped with a medium faded pink head... Tart blueberry nose with a pretty subdued funk tones...flavors follow suit but with a thinner profile and a somewhat watery body. Somewhat lively carbonation adds some character. Finishes short. Starts off nice with a solid nose and alluring appearance. leaves more to be desired from a flavor and palate perspective. 7/4/6/3/14

Bottle @ SB Västerås. Pours cloudy light lilac red with a very smalk pinkish head. Aroma is horse blanket, sour, stable; no blueberries I’m afraid. Acidy fruity mouthfeel. Flavor is somewhat balanced fruity, bitter, blueberries. Thin watery palate. Finishes sour tart.

Sample at Lkpg Beer Expo. Red-pinky with pretty much no head. A little funky, nice balanced sourness, slightly fruity and with a interesting hint of blueberry.

Pinball (11331) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 10, 2010
bottle from bunker beer clear red, pink head. dry soirish beer aroma, also red fruity notes. The soursih beer aroma is pretty dry, rather than sour. Also a good dose of sweet leather, or skin. Aroma is not especially pleasant but very interesting. flavor is quite sour and acid, quite dry, resembling perhaps pink champaigne. Not much fruit here, but quite a lot of lambic. Everything matches well and the flavor is way better than the aroma. The not so strong flavor from fruits is good i think, it seems like the fruits there is, is kinda’ not fresh. Very nice fruit lambic anyways. the flavor profile is "clean" and i can’t find any of the weird flavors that some non-belgian sour beers have. Experiemnt with the blueberry part - the lambic part is spot on ;-).

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 7, 2010
Small bottle shared by hcalcos. Low grey-shaded blond head. Body has a nice red color with a ruby hue. Aroma of sour red berries and barnyard. Dry, sappy berry flavor. Some sourness , some funk. Light-bodied. Feels kind of diluted in the mouth. Sharp, dry metallic ending. Strange brew.
