Norwegian: Et samarbeid mellom Mikkeller og Nøgne Ø. Et tyttebærøl brygget med Brettanomyces og bakterier. Ølet tok 9 måneder å gjære, og trengte ytterligere 8 måneders modning på flaske før det ble sluppet for salg. Denne ale er meget tørr og syrlig. De 1000 kg med håndpressede tyttebær, har satt et tydelig preg.

Bottle, pours burnt orange with an off white head that quickly falls off to a nice ring around the glass. Aroma is mild funk and brett and slight acidity as well. Flavor is tart berries/lingonberry, medium body and pleasantly tart. As it warms the funkiness come through a bit more. Nice beer although I’d say a bit high priced.

Red lingon colour, aggressive head. Very sour lingon aroma with little else in the aroma with a bitter tartness on the flavour that was quite refreshing but bighting on the tongue. Tarty in the beginning with a crisp sour finish, not exactly my cup of tea.

Oh yes, thin one is special. Living from its freshness and mild acidity combining some berries behind the first nose. Highly drinkable with a touch of cranberry juice in the aftertaste. Good one with a balanced mix of sweet and sour.

Bottle from Meilby - thank you, Kenni! Batch nr 337, brewed 30/01/08. The beer has got a deep orange-brownish colour with an low head and medium body. Aroma of acid, mild vinegar, pure cranberries. Taste of unripe currants, cranberries, acid, light malt and bread. Sour finish with a cranberry twist. Liked the amount of sourness, very tasty and very enjoyable.

500ml bottle purchased at Knightly Spirits in Orlando, Florida. Orange-rust in colour with a long lasting off-white head, light lacing. Aroma is very tart and acidic, some sourness, cheese, perfume, flowers. Flavour is mild sour, good tartness, berry skin tartness, quite dry, some citrus, wood, earth and some raspberries. Sour mouthfeel, medium/light body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long, sour, berry tartness, dry. Fantastic stuff, I love this brewery and this is real good. Good sourness, excellent lambic qualities.

"where’s the love...this beer was surprisingly awesome. the cranberries are not as tart as expected and impart a slightly mellow sweet character to the fairly funky woodsie brew. very nice and very refreshing, yet complex. well done!"

Old rating rerated 06.06.2014, 0,5l bottle @ home:
The bottle opened with a boom as usual, but this time it was actually not a gusher, first time ever. Nice slightly fizzy-creamy longlasting head. Aroma is slightly dry sour-ish fruity, loads of mountain craneberries (actually more in the direction of regular craneberries), grass, berry skin, mild brett, bubblegum, sorrel, paint. Taste is slightly dry funky fruity, loads of mountain cranberries, sorrel, berry skin, mild brett, grass, bubblegum, minerals, hay. Medium bitterness, slightly dry mouthfeel. This one has just kept evolving all the way, and is now better than ever. Lovely stuff! Placing this beer in the "sour/wild" category however, does not justify this beer. Fruit beer would be a better choice...

Nydelig duft av tyttebær og andre bær. Dunkel rødbrun farge. Tynt dekkende skum, noe heng langs kant. Frisk smak av bær. Forfriskende lett drukket. Takk til Yngwie.
