Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 5, 2008
(Bottle 33 cl) Pours a hazy reddish with a rough reddish head. Tart fruit aroma with typical Brett notes of horse blanket. Rather light in the body with tart fruit notes and an astringet sourish finish. Quite interesting. 290608

thewolf (11209) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2008
Bottle @ the RBESG08 Grand Tasting.
Pours hazy red-pink with a small, pink film head. Aroma is sweet, with fresh berries, some light tartness, caramel and barnyard. Dry and fine mouthfeel. Flavour is lightly tart, good berries. But there just isn’t enough of an otherwise good thing in here.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2008
Bottle at the RBESG08 Grand tasting. Alround rating: Quite a stinky beast, like manure from a farm witrh fruity character, well carbonated and very refreshing.

ekstedt (5579) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 7, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 20, 2009 Sampled at the RBESG08 grand tasting. Murky deep violet with a ruby head. Fresh cidery bleuberry aroma with some slightly sharp barnyard notes. Nicely balanced acidity. Second sample at SB&WF 2009. Very refreshing and well balanced. Wonderful!

Bov (9701) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - FEB 1, 2008
courtesy of Per - cloudy bordeaux colour without foam; aroma of cheese, cellar and berries (blueberries ? maybe), moderate malt body and with a fair acidity; quite dry finish with more fruitiness and a lingering acidity - clean and very drinkable

Miksu (4972) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JAN 3, 2008
Bottle at Stockholm Beer Festival 2007. Hazy dark red color. Sweetish, acidic, fruity, berryish and appley aroma. The same elements are also present in the flavor along with notes of apple skin. Not bad, but the word lambic creates expectations which this beer does not fulfil.
