ben4321 (4260) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 13, 2015
Location: Draft at ChurchKey, 11/1/14

Aroma: The nose is strongly fruity, both sweet and sour, with some wood
Appearance: Pours a dark reddish-purple color with a reddish-pink head on top
Flavor: Tastes much the same, with the fruity sweet and sour flavors playing nice off one another
Palate: It has a medium body, a fairly lively feel, and a lightly tart/dry finish
Overall Impression: This is a unique looking beer and a pretty tasty one too. I have found most from this series that I have tried enjoyable, and this one was one of the better I’ve tried.

phaleslu (6905) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 6, 2015
375 ml bottle shared by Emma - thanks again! 2013 vintage. Pours a hazy plum-rose color with a small off-white head. Notes of yogurt, blueberry cobbler, bread, vanilla, oak, rose petals, currants, grapes, lemon juice, and cheesecloth. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry, tart mouthfeel. The acidity and tartness are pretty restrained here. Good, but not a standout in the style.

DrSilverworm (7227) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 5, 2015
12.7oz bottle, big thanks to Emma for sharing. 2013 vintage. Dark red color, kind of purple. Thin off-white head. Dots and short ropes of lace. Awesome, beautiful color. Really interesting, potent aroma. Big cream cheesiness in the nose, kind of spicy berries. Dark (black) cherry. Medium plus body, smooth, lighter carbonation. Good kind of chewy texture. Tasty fruity stuff.

SinH4 (353) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 25, 2014
On tap at Erzbierschof 2 times in 2014, uploading old notes. Deep red/purple with a pink head. Aroma is intensely cassis, berries, but the funk is not missing out. Taste is sweet-sour, super-nice combination of the berries and the funk. A very good amount of sourness which blends in nicely. A great fruit lambic, one of my favourites from the Mikkeller spontans which I’ve had so far.

HonusWagner (1632) - Florida, USA - DEC 6, 2014
Easily the best Mikkeller lambic I’ve tried. There’s an intense acidity to this one but the light sweetness of the currant works really well and creates an extremely intense flavor experience. It’s like a raspberry vinaigrette on steroids, or something. Quite tasty.
