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.

Anker (723) - Hillerød, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2010
On tap at Mikkeller. Pours hazy yellow-white (milky) with a white head. Aroma is dominated by vinegar, dry citrus, dust notes and a hint of rhubarb. Flavour is dry lemon-lime, vinegar a little earth, some late sweetness and a distinct rhubarb tartness with a poppy seeds like after taste.

Defreni (2645) - Husum, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2010
Fad: Gulorange diset med et fint lille skumhoved. Duften er præget af en smule stald og minder lidt om Mikkellers andre sure øl. Rabarberen kan ikke rigtig anes. Der hvor øllen går i overdrive er i smagen. Fantastisk eftersmag af peber der bare bliver ved og ved. Virkelig en lækkerbisken. Bare superærgeligt at jeg kun nåede at få en af dem.

Ungstrup (29802) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2010
Draft at The World Premiere - today at 14:03. An unclear yellow beer with a slight pink shine under a huge but collapsing white head ø not very pretty. The aroma has strong notes of vinegar and brettanomyces. The flavor is very sour with a light sweetness and strong notes of brettanomyces and lemon as well as liight notes of rhubarb, leading to a very tart finish. Not enough rhubarb for me.
