Bottle. Somewhat hazy yellow color, almost no head. Aroma is extremely clean with some tart fruits, citrus, grass, orange, mandarin and so forth. Taste is also clean and tart, dry and dusty: it has lemon, strawberry, mandarin. Very good!

Draft at Ei8ht Ball. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a small off white head . The aroma and flavor have tart/sour orange citrus, some acidity and funk, wood, I think the sour was enhanced by the crazy sweet beer I had with this. Decent, interesting sour.

On tap at Mikkeller Bar Stockholm. Sour and fruity smell with citrus. Similar taste. Nice sourness, it mixes well with the citrus fruit.

4oz on tap at Ei8ht Ball. Clear golden, slight orange color. Thin ring of white head. Whoaw, awesome big mandarin orange aroma and flavor up front. Definitely spot-on for a mandarin lambic. Starting to love this series from Mikkeller more and more with every example I try. Moderate sweet taste, nice light to moderate sour. Medium plus body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Kind of dry finish. Pretty nice, enjoyable tart and satisfyingly mandarin lambic. Props to Mikkeller for continually trying new stuff like this. A mandarin lambic is new and original, as far as I’m aware.

Skinnyviking (7133) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2014
Draught at Taphouse. Low fluffy white lasting head. Clear amber body. Acidic fruity mandarin aroma. Sour acidic lemon grapefruit mandarine flavor with low carbonation, long finish and an alcohol level that seems just right.

Pours a decent hazed orange amber hue. Larger tannish head atop stays as a sizable cakey layer, good stick around and lacing. Darker fiery orange hue through the body glowly intently. Aromas show touches of firm funk, citrus, orange, lactic life. Decent yogurt, bretty cobwebs and horseblanket. Straw, grapefruit, a bit of oak, cheesecloth. Firmer sour and funk elements settle in. Initial is lighter end of the fold in body with nice citric orange, touches of bitter rind oil, fresh lemon, sour lactic bite with fruity citrus vibe, some cobwebs, crab apple and white grape. Decent oak, some yogurt life. Nothing overdone but certainly awakens the senses. Backend is oaky, fruity white wine with pear, apple, white grape and some melon. Decent bretty funk gets a bit dusty and dry back here. Citrusy orange gives a nice sweet/sour play throughout. Touches of orange juice, sweet orange jellow my Aunt used to make with a still nice sour bent and firmer oak and funk as we press on. While the nose seems a bit more intense, the lambic seems to a play it a bit more safe. Still, nice stuff.
