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.

Travlr (9999) - 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).

Defreni (2463) - 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.

gEUS (982) - Linden, BELGIUM - OCT 18, 2011
draft @ Boreft. Tart, citrus, white grapefruit - colour makes me think of a white grenache vin doux naturel. Taste is "wine-isch" as well. Nice!

Martinus (2739) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 18, 2011
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.

Countbeer (4301) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - SEP 30, 2011
Draught @ BBF’11: No head. Hazy pissy abricot juice yellow colored beer. Smell fruit, lemon, blood orange, rhubarb. Taste yoghurt, yeast, sour, yellow (sour) fruit, rhubarb, lemon. Not too sour but nicely balanced and good bodied. Low carbo, full body, soft mouthfeel and a watery texture.

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2010 Handbottled by Theis. Thanks! Cloudy salmon like colur with rhubarb string floating around. Not very appealing. Quite acidic aroma with sour citric and rhubarb notes. Some sour apples as well. The flavour is sour fruit, acid and ends up light salty. Extremely dry finish. 7/2/6/3/14 New rating from Borefts Festival. Hazy yellow with a medium white head. The aroma is quite sour and acidic with notes of citrus. Very acidic and sour flavour with nice fresh rhubarb notes. Barnyard. Very dry finish. Great.

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.
