COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Øllen er brygget efter alle kunstens regler, og sådan som en klassisk belgisk lambic skal brygges, med umaltet hvede, og gammel humle. Og her stopper det traditionelle så, for den luftbårne gær denne øl er gæret med, kommer ikke fra området omkring Bruxelles. Den er derimod Vesterbro. Den vind der blæser ind over Hovedbanegården og truer med at blæse hatten af en rejsende, den vind der suser ned af Skælbækgade og får en radmagre narkoluder til at skutte sig, den vind der kommer ned af Istedgade og tager røgen fra de rygende trunter foran Bang og Jensens med sig, den vind har nemlig også bragt vaskeægte Vesterbro-gær med sig. Og den gær fra den vind, har gæret denne lambic. Og man kan næsten smage, eller i hvert fald fornemme, de rygende og de rejsende - og alle os andre. Men det er ikke alene gær der gør denne øl ekstraordinær, det er også frugten den er i den. Helt klassisk og traditionelt vil man bruge kirsebær eller hindbær til denne øltype, men Mikkeller er ikke god til traditioner, konventioner og det forventelige, og det er sikkert en af flere gode forklaringer på, at da det blev besluttet at der skulle frugt i denne øl, så faldt valget på rabarber.

Jaksmart (407) - Aarhus, DENMARK - NOV 4, 2011
Unclear pale yellow color with little or no white head. Aroma is quite odd. Lots of milky lactose, earth, elephant(!), hay, the tropical department at the Zoo, strawberry, raspberry, good vinegary sourness. Taste is also very milky with lacto-sourness, strawberry, vinegar, gooseberries, sugar, sour orange and other grapes..

draft @ Boreft. Tart, citrus, white grapefruit - colour makes me think of a white grenache vin doux naturel. Taste is "wine-isch" as well. Nice!

Hazy very weak amber colour, no head. Fruity tart aroma, lemon, sweet orange, rhubarb and yoghurt. Quite tart sour flavour with a slight sweetness coming through. Rubarb, fruity, oxalic acid. Nice balance, really nice lambic.
