4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy dark reddish brown with a fizzy white head. Huge raspberry, grains of paradise, Belgian yeast, and doughy aroma. Thick creamy palate. Sweet raspberry and chocolate taste up front immediately followed by a tart sourness and lemon taste, and ending with light pepper notes and a tart fruity and dry oaky finish. Damn good. Mt favorite Mikkeller spont thus far.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A sparkling cloudy berry red colour with a fast settling medium rouge head. Smells like the Bretty farmhouse ale with loads of sour berries. Well carbonated, but creamy too it tastes tart berry fruity sour, some citrus style bitterness, some alcohol present at finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Ørsted, Copenhagen
Cloudy red color, with medium sized pink and compact head. The aroma is deep, old cellar, Bretts, some hazelnut; and a lot of fresh raspberries; very nice; there is a feety trace later. Dry and sour mouthfeel; the fruit is present, but the Lambic noble character less, and there is some wet wood as well; the final is moderately astringent.
Good, not exceptional; I also prefer less alcohol in fruit Lambics.

Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. A bright red cloudy beer that pours with a large foamy pink head. It has a sour red fruity – raspberry – flavour followed by an extremely tart acidic fruity finish. A very nice beer, slightly let down by its high ABV – it would be just as good if the ABV was lower.
