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.

phredrik (1010) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - SEP 25, 2011
Tap @ Borefts Beer Festival. Pours unclear pale yellow, no head. Aroma has a lot of lacto, almost like a yoghurt, some brett notes, barnyard, hay, somewhat funky and a fruity hint of strawberries, stable, vinegar, sour orange, but the lacto is really taking the picture here. Taste is still very lactic, A38 yoghurt, rather milky, a held back tartness, lemony. The taste isn’t very complex and doesn’t match some of the complexity of the aroma.

suprchunk (2034) - Crestview, Florida, USA - SEP 25, 2011
On tap at BBF. Hazy pale yellow/almost white colored pour. No head, just bubbles around the edge. Almost like a cloudy champagne in color. Very spicy aroma with a huge funk, earthy, grassy, sweaty. Big tartness in the mouth. A tart vegetable type taste. Very tart, very. Sour and funky with a huge peppery presence. By the way, it’s a tart beer.

Koelschtrinker (9999) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 11, 2011
Säuerlicher, erst spät fruchtiger Geschmack, der das Rhabarber deutlich macht. Erfrischend, im Nachgeschmack aber zu heftig. Die Säuerlichkeit ist gelungen, der Frucht (oder besser Gemüse?) Geschmack dagegen weniger. 10/9/8/3//6
