fonefan (36036) - VestJylland, DENMARK - DEC 6, 2008
Draught at EBF 2008, Copenhagen, Denmark. Clear medium orange red color with virtually none head. Aroma is heavy fruity - berry tart, redcurrants, hay, wood notes. Flavor is moderate to heavy acidic with a long duration, and a dry dry finish. Body is light to medium, texture is watery, carbonation is flat. [130908]

yespr (32032) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - SEP 14, 2008
From tap. Pours orange and cloudy with a fully gone head. Aroma is tart berry and brett. Bone dry in both aroma and flavour. Dry and acidic with a nice redcurrent berry fruity flavour. Smooth and dry finish. What a pleasure to sip.

Ungstrup (29848) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 8, 2009
Draft. A hazy red beer with a small reddish head. The aroma has sour notes of red currant. The flavor is quit sour and dominated by red currant, though also with some brett notes and what comes with that, leading to a tart finish. The acidity tickles the tongue.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 15, 2008
(On tap) Pours a slightly hazy pink with absolutely no head. Distinct tart and fruity nose. Light body with a distinctly astringent, vinegarish acidity and a discreet underlying fruitiness. Ends extremely sour. 130908

oh6gdx (20902) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 24, 2008
Draught@EBF2008. Pinkish red colour with small pinkish head. Aroma is sour wood, red currant and also some quite blackcurrants too. Flavour is bigtime sourness along with some red sour berries. Nice balance, but it could have a bit longer aftertaste.

omhper (19956) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 15, 2008
Draught at European Beer Festival, Copenhagen. Bright pink no head. Vinegary Canillon-like lemony nose. The addiotion of red currant marries well with the lambic and stays on balanced levels. While it offers lots of lemon and vinegar the complexity of the best lambics is not really achieved. I also find a slight hint of rubber in the finish, but more vague here than in theitr framboos. One of the most genuinely interesting beers at the festival, although not the best.

yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 30, 2008
On tap at European Beer Festival, Copenhagen. A hazy, candy-red beer with no head. Berries, sourness, barnyard, horse blanket and some lemon in the aroma which is quite subtle. Would like it more pronounced. The funky flavor has lemon, barnyard and horse blanket, finishing with a lasting lambicish lemony flavor. Yet another nice limbic from Mikkeller. (080913)
