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.

thewolf (11158) - Kolding, DENMARK - SEP 20, 2008
Tap @ EBF, 2008, Carlsberg.
Pours a lovely pale orange-red with no head. A nice shine to it, though. Aroma is dry, lots of funkiness, clear definition of oak and a very light, subdued fruitiness. Red currants aren’t the most aroma-full berries, so that probably goes with the show. Highish carbonation, really latting the flavours dance in my mouth. And the flavours... oh, the flavours. Incredibly balanced fruitiness and wonderful tartness. The oak in clearly present again. Super, elegant and powerful. Make this again, Mikkel!

fonefan (34777) - 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]

KimJohansen (10349) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - SEP 16, 2008
Cloudy orange with tiny pink head. Sour aroma with barnyard, vinegar, barnyard and red currant. Sour flavour with red currant, vinegar, barnyard, leather and horeseblanket notes. Ends with massive sourness. Excellent!

asheft (2500) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 1, 2008
[on tap at EBF 2008] Excellent sour aroma with fruity notes: cherry, white grape. Also oaky. Foggy red currant appearance with no head. Only slightly vinegary sour fruit flavour with plenty of oak. Ginger note. Tingly sour--currant sourness. Excellent balance. Light body, medium carbonation, clean finish, if mouth puckering through the taste.

Christian (11056) - 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-.

Hazy red of color with a small reddish head. An aroma of red berries, sour and horse. A flavor of reddish berries, mild sour and fresh.

Koelschtrinker (10504) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 11, 2011
Aromatisch säuerlicher Geruch mit gut abgepasstem Fruchtanteil. Dezent säuerlicher Antrunk, aromatisch und von der Intensität her noch weiter steigend. Die Fruchtigkeit ist mit der Säuerlichkeit auf gleicher Höhe, es ergibt sich ein harmonischer Geschmack, mit der Zeit wirkt die Säuerlichkeit etwas strenger, bleibt aber gut ausbalanciert. Ein absolut gelungenes Lambic mit vollem und komplexem Körper. 11/13/12/13//13

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 17, 2008
Draught at EBF. This is pretty epically sour. Lots of sour smelly, vinegary authentic lambic notes in the aroma, and the flavour. The sour red currant fruit comes through as soon as it hits your tongue. Very acidic, and quite earthy in character. Puckering, very nice.

Dedollewaitor (13803) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 23, 2008
Tap at EBF: Clear pink with no head or lacings. Sour, fruity, oak, fresh, vinegar, dry, raspberry. Bitingly offensive in a good way!
