Pour out of 375 mL bottle is dark red, nice and hazy, big thanks to Renee for the pour. Aroma brings notes of cranberries, hints of funk, basement, touch of vanilla and nice oaky tannic notes. Taste is a nice mix of cranberry and tart lemon, vanilla, and tart oak, hints of biscuit and slight red berry notes, finish very tart but fairly funky. Nice, nice stuff.

375 ml bottle @ Patricks. Almost clear, reddish orange body with a big off- white/pale pinkish head. Aroma of acidic, matured berries and some funkiness. Flavor is acidic, mild fruity and pleasant Brett/funk. Medium body, something with the fruit gives me a feeling of body being more balanced than the redcurrant version, even being more subdue in aroma but the fruit flavor is more integrated. Hope to compare with some others as well. A nice, acidic fruity beer, pleasant but not super complex.

Bottle at borefts 2011. Spontancranberry. Haze orange red tasty if a bit sharp. Wow. That is sharp as hell. Goid though if a touch tart. 3.7 bit of biscuit.

Masse karbonering og kullsyre, over femti prosent. Lukter mer balansert enn redcurrant. Sur, balansert, bedre fylde.

I got this one at toft vin i think (notes gone), shared at papsoe. cloudy red, huge pink head. dry lamic and sweet fruit aroma. flavor is sour, tart, dry lambic, red unripe fruits, cranberries, very dry and sour. Great fruit lambic - the mikkeller sours get better all the time.

MartinT (8135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 15, 2012
My Bottom Line :
Three-dimensional fruitiness takes the taster from the crushed skin to the juicy pith and its citric lengths as light wilderness and effervescence contribute more complexity and refreshment.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A slice of foam decorates the beautifully cranberry red.
-Fruit tannins are mildly present, adding to the complexity.
-Flavor intensity is not through the roof, which is appreciated.
-The fruit character is alluring from aroma to finish; great job.
-There is balance between the cranberries and the base Wild Ale.
-This is my favorite of the Mikkeller spontaneous fermentation series I’ve had.
