3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught. Orange-copper with a white creamy head. The aroma is great - cherry juice, brett, oak, and earth. Not particularly wheaty but there is some raw fruit flavour. Decent balance between the tartness and the cherry sweetness. No alcohol is detected either - 9.2% lambic! Very good Danish rendition.
Sampled at the Københavnske Øldage 2006 on May 20, 2006.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very hazy amber beer with a slight orange to deep-orange glow. The froth is slight beige and the beer leaves a nice white lacing on the glass. Aroma is refreshing, crisp and grassy. It has aroma’s of goosberries, rubarbe Greek youghurt, blood-oranges and some ripe strawberries. The taste is again crisp, nobel sourish with a lactic carracter planted on a medium sliky body. The afthertaste is dry, slight grassy with a interesting bitterness that ends with a twist of limepeel and fresh mint.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught @ KØ 2006: Dark amber coloured. Hazy. Small off white head. Tarts and horseblanket in the aroma. Some sweetness to balance. Flavour as well is sour and citric with the usual earth and horse notes. Quite refreshing and grapish with some fruity notes. No alcohol is tastable, but a light warmth is filling the palate. Medium bodied. Quite nice for a danish lambic.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Københavnske Øldage 2006. Pours a hazy red/brown. Sour and fruity with a hint of alcohol. Nice and refreshing. I wish my vocabulary was more extended with the lambics but I´m still learning to like this style. Best Lambic I´ve had to date.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(On tap) Hazy reddish amber with a tiny head. Distinct, sourish Brett aroma. Rather light body - I cannot believe this is 9.2% ABV. Sweet’n’sour with some almost vinous accents. Very pleasant, delicate and balanced. No trace of them cherries though. 190506

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught at Københavnske Øldage 2006.
Orange and with an off-white head that disappears quickly.
The aroma is classic lambic; tobacco, bretty aromas of horseblanket and some lime.
Quite fullbodied for a lambic, but you don’t sense the alcohol at all. Dry and sour aftertaste. Interestingly, the cherries aren’t really present in any major way - it feels much more like a "plain" lambic than a kriek.

[Draught at Købehavnske Øldage] Clear reddish orange. Tart lactic nose. Very dry with near full body. Some barnyard and citric acid. Authentic lambic flavour, but not as complex as some of the real masterpieces.
