Comments: I did not enjoy this one as much as I expected. First it is nicely woody and its raspberry flavours are very well extracted, but the palate did not protrude as much sourness as I would have hoped and the result feels extremely sweet to the point of being sticky despite the very high carbonation. The alcohol is also well upfront. Raspberry waffled with ginger and soaked in rum.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 5, 2007
[Another century celebrated with a Mikkeller beer - this time 8900] Draft. A deep red-brown beer with a disappearing brown head. The aroma is sweet malty combined with strong notes of raspberries and wood. The flavor is a mixture of sweet and acidic with notes of raspberries and wood. For a lover of Flemish Sour beers this is lovely.

Draught at Københavnske Øldage 2007
Dark chestnut color; thin creamy head. The fruity-sour aroma of Oud Bruin beers is strong. Powerful flavor too, full malty, a bit vinous, fruity, chemicals… I love so much this!

yngwie (12682) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 22, 2007
Draught at Københavnske Øldage. Deep mahogany color, clear, and without head. Really a juiced-up flamish sour ale, with a good dash of alcohol, but a decent level of sourness. Quite sweet flavor, yet very sour, with dried fruits as well. A bit astringent mouthfeel, as it should be. The finish is both sweet and acidic. (070511)

lachesis (756) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - JUN 10, 2007
Hazy brown, oily poure and small light coloured head. Aroma a bready, candi like and has tons of stuffed rasperries, red berries, eau de vie de framboise but also touches of medicinale sirups, chalk pouder (Johnson & Johnson), tar, solfer, pipe tobacco. Taste is another storry. Its is rich, with nice mouthfilling breadyness (Milkbread) nuts, frangipan (almond cake) vanilla and a very nice ballans between the sweet sugars and the sour (slight tart) raspberrie and other berries. No medicinale accents in the taste here. Thanks Mikkel for filling up the only bottle ever made of this stuff. I realy loved the the brown sugars and the fruits.

ThomasE (5176) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 8, 2007
Deep reddish, brown colour with a tan head. Malty, raspberry fruity aroma with a light sweetness. Wellbalanced raspberry fruity flavor with sugar sweet notes and a light dry and tart finish.
