rarbring (1497) - Linköping, SWEDEN - NOV 22, 2014
Aroma: Smelling funky leather, stable, fermented black currants.
Appearance: The ale is clouded deep red, has a high firm pink head that settles slowly and leaves loads of lacing and good curtains.
Taste: No sweetness to talk about, a very invigorating tart sourness, red fruit aroma, crushed cherry seed bitterness.
Palate: Medium high carbonation, a dry almost course texture, medium body with lots of freshness. Does not feel like near 8%.
Overall: A very nice lambic style beer.
Note: Bottle 375 ml. Reviewed 2012-02-28.

Sample at the 2014 Infected Chimipalooza on 11/01/2014. Hazy reddish color with a medium thin off-white head that diminishes steadily to an outer ring. Stringy lacing. Barnyard aroma with fruit and currants in the background. Medium bodied with flavors of funky yeast, berries and black currants. The finish is funky with a berry aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

Draft at Churchkey for the Night of the Living Ales #4. Poured a hazy dark red/light purple color with an off-white head. Aroma was tart cherries, lots of acidic notes. Flavor was mouth puckering cherries. Heavy acid. This was the most Spontan beer from Mikkeller... and that was a good thing.
