Nocturne (744) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2012
375ml bottle. An intriguing reddish purple colour with a bright pink head. Why can’t more beers have a pink head? Even though Mikkeller aren’t a traditional lambic maker they get the aroma and taste pretty much spot on. I love the sourness but wish the blackcurrants shone through a little bit more. Perhaps blackcurrants just don’t stand out like cherries do? Despite that, top marks to Mikkeller for this lovely lambic.

Mortlach (962) - Rome, ITALY - JAN 5, 2012
05/01/2011 Brasserie 4:20 (375ml bottle). Bevuta al Mikkeller Beer Festival. Rossa, intensa, color ribes, con bella schiuma bianco sporca, abbastanza persistente. Al naso intenso aroma di ribes, con note acetiche e un po’ sporche. In bocca è acida, con note acetiche non eccessive, ribes ben in evidenza, migliore rispetto alla framboise, ma comunque deludente. Corpo medio, buona carbonazione. Si fa apprezzare più per l’originalità che non per la sua effettiva riuscita.

Dunbar72 (134) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 3, 2012
Pours dark hazy red with a large, pink creamy head. Aroma is currants, root cellar and citrus. More sour to the taste than expected, lots of grape and currants. Root cellar, lemon and currants in the finish. Very light body, but it suits this beer. Very nice one.

Scopey (6197) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2011
Bottle at CP&K. It pours cloudy purple, with a quickly dissipating pink head. The nose is red grape, blackcurrant jam and farmyard. The taste is tart lemon, blackcurrant, blackberry, jam, red grape and wood, with a juicy-tart finish. Medium body, fine carbonation and good balance. Not particularly complex, but delicious nonetheless.

Frovigalning (2908) - Örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 30, 2011
Bottle from Systembolaget. Fruity and sout. Fairly bitter and a long lasting aftertaste. Ok lambic, but not in the same class as Cantillon for instance.
