yngwie (13346) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 20, 2011
Bottle, 375ml corked. It pours a more or less clear body, orange to copper in color and with a dense, finger-thick off-white head. Lightly funky, lemony and berry-ish aroma with some barnyardish hints. Dry on the palate, a bit heavy on the carbonation. Berry-sour flavor with lemony, funky flavors too. Lasting, almost burning finish with berry-like sourness. A quite decent one, not extraordinary, but nice. 110820

dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - AUG 18, 2011
bottle at brewdog Edinburgh. dark reddish orange, gushing white head fades to a thin film. very dry, almost gueuze tart nose. little berry fruit but mostly vinous and dry. so, so sour on the palate - some cranberry sweetness but really very tart overall. I like it a lot.

Anker (723) - Hillerød, DENMARK - AUG 15, 2011
Bottle at home. Lovely copper colour with a huge fluffy orange head. Pleasant aroma with lots of wood and citrus also dry-sweet berries and dirt. The flavour is very bitter-sour grape at first, then berries followed by a bit of wood and burnt rubber. Ends very dry and bitter. Hopefully theres no rubber notes in the next bottle.

blafa (511) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 3, 2011
Nice hazy red colour with a rocky foam that fades quick. Aroma is pleasant but on the sweet side with a lot of cranberries (For once I can actually distinguish what’s in these beers) and a hint of cherries. Good earthy notes and quite sour as well. Medium to full bodied and pretty dry. Taste have the right sourness and acidity and this feels like a real lambic for once. Overall good especially after the other "spontan-beers" that was a slight let down.

phredrik (1010) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - JUL 28, 2011
Bottle 37,5 cl. Pours cranberry juice colored with a soapy small white head. Aroma is sweet and sour. Red berries, huge funk, horse blanket, notes of leather, the most funky smelling of the Mikkeller Lambics so far. Almost a bit of rhubarb, and of course a lor of wet oak characteristics. Taste is as sour as the other fruit lambics, very very tart, loads of horse blanket. Sour cranberries are also evident, and a lime-like bitterness too. Not as balanced as some of the other Mikkeller fruit lambics, but decent enough, though.
