Christian (11119) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 15, 2008
Pale cloudy red with no head. Aroma of sour berries with distinct Cantillon funk, and a tiny hint of medicinal iodine. Delicious dry and tart with lots of red currant character and a long lasting berry flavour-.

lassem (652) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 8, 2008
Served from tap at EBF in Copenhagen. I went quite a few times in a row for this tap - I must say that its was extremely drinkable...Mikkeller come on.. PUT THIS ONE ON BOTTLES. It pours a light deep orangish red. In the aroma you find tons of wild berries and soil from a summer forrest. The taste is bitter without turning your mouth into a chickins ass. Combined with the bitterness you find a nice and round sweetness with buttery sidenotes. The redcurrants stays with you for a while...and thats a nice acquaintance.

austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - OCT 7, 2008
Draught @ EBF. Light red, no head. Mildly tart, red currant aroma. Very easy , sweetish red currant flavor, not much sourness, little wheat in the very short finish. Lacks complexity, definitely the weakest of these Mikkeller lambics.

Draught@EBF 2008. A pinkish red beer with a small reddish-white head. Aroma is acidic-sour berries with notes of oak. Heavy fruity acidity in the flavor, balanced by some wooden notes and a distinct taste of redcurrant. A little vinegar and a sharp fruity sourness in the finish.
