Rask0lnikov (743) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 3, 2016
Nice dark deep red colour. Pinkish head disappeared quickly. Red wine, blueberries, raspberries and hints of vinegar in the aroma. Nice blueberry taste at first. Different sour berries and good red wine like taste in the middle. Acidic, grassy end. Low carbonated, silky textured, medium bodied nice fruit lambic.

Un grand merci à Marc-André pour le partage de cette bière très dispendieuse! Mettons les choses au clair en partant: je n’ai jamais respiré rien de tel! Un nez surdimensionné de bleuets emplit la pièce en une fraction de seconde. Une forte odeur de bleuets bien réels a envahi l’appartement en un instant, comme si une tarte aux bleuets cuisait au four depuis une heure. Je ne croyais pas qu’une telle odeur puisse être possible dans une bière tant c’est intense! Le liquide est mauve et surmonté d’une tête lilas. En approchant prudemment mon nez de ce verre infernal, je respire des arômes qui me font de plus en plus penser non pas à du bleuet mais bien à du cassis et de la mûre sauvage. Ça sent vraiment très bon! En bouche le liquide a un profil de saveurs beaucoup plus mince et subtil. Tant mieux car je n’aurais su supporter des saveurs aussi puissantes que les arômes! Les fruits sont beaucoup plus subtils mais ce qui retient le plus mon attention est ici un réel profil lambic belge comme pierre d’assise à ce monstre Danois. Un côté typique sulfureux et barriqué ressort pour la première fois dans la série Spontan de Mikkeller et j’en suis stupe-et-fait! Une bière étonnante qui oui, vaut bien 38$ la bouteille de 375ml!

Draft, 18 month old keg. Pours an impressive deep, deep purple and by look and smell it seems to be aggressively asserting how many blueberries went into making this behemoth. The taste is big, with a blueberry taste so pungent that it almost tastes like puree, and a sourness so aggressive that it pushes into the vinegar side of things. Very interesting and very much worth a try, but not at all "balanced".

floydian1 (1354) - FNQ, Australia, - DEC 16, 2015
375ml bottle from Oak Barrel, Sydney. Red wine-like body beneath a transient reddish-pink head. Nose offers woody Cabernet Sauvignon, dark berries, barnyard funk and lemony citrus. Palate is fruity, vinous and lively before a mouth-puckering Cantillon-like dry sourness to the finish. Excellent stuff from Mikkeller on a par with an authentic Belgian lambic fruit beer.

Senka (1059) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 14, 2015
375cl@OBE2015 thanks ElviraS! Sour, malty, dry, mouth numbing even. Aroma of blueberries and and as it should be - of lambic beer. Sour and tangy all the way.

ajnepple (5068) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 8, 2015
On tap at Black Bottle Brewery. Dark purple appearance with small, quickly dissipating, light purple head. Very vinous, red wine-like aroma with notes of blueberries, grape skin and light funky yeast. Similar flavor, mildly sour with a light to mild fruity sweetness and a lightly astringent finish. An interesting lambic than became more enticing as it warmed.

slowrunner77 (10112) - Reno, Nevada, USA - DEC 6, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2015 Another nice looking deep purple brew. More fruit forward than the others. Sweet and tart, still with vinegar and oak. The heavy fruit flavor and aroma makes this a favorite though.
