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.

DSG (6337) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 7, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2010 [9/24/10] Draught at Borefts Beer Festival 2010. Hazy pale yellow-golden. Nice bretty barnyard aroma with lots of fresh fruits - apple, citrus, some tropical fruits. Sour flavor, spicy, with earth, a bit of fruits and sweet hints in the back. Medium-bodied. Something unpleasant and weird about this one and I can’t put my finger on it. Still not bad though.

dEnk (4044) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 5, 2010
Draft @ BBF. Aroma of brett, somehow a bit milky, but in a good way. Flavour is very smooth yet extremely sour. Beers like this keep my love for sours growing.

Bullit (4030) - Burgos, SPAIN - OCT 5, 2010
Tap @ 2nd BBF. Slightly hazy pale blonde colour, white bubbles. Aroma is sour, citrus and barnyard, some odd vanilla. Flavour is sour apple, barnyard and yeast.

Travlr (13407) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 2, 2010
Draught at Borefts Beer Festival 2010, courtesy of Mikkel and the boys, thank you gentlemen! Hazy yellow, small white head. Aroma of sour dust and funk, a bit of grapes. Taste is dry, dusty, sour lemon, grapefruit, sweat, and I can be convinced of maybe a bit of rhubarb. Really nice example of the style, and more proof positive (Like Urbain’s Dirty Horse) that you CAN make a good lambik far from the Senne).

bierkoning (10563) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - OCT 2, 2010
Tap @ BBF 2010. Pale blonde. Rhubarn and leather in the aroma. Quite sour flavor, milky with strong rhubarb notes. Lemon. More a Berliner weisse as a lambic.
