On tap @ Schouskjelleren. This one pours a cloudy orange almost honey colored body with a small white light lacing bubbly top. Fantastic sour and tart aroma. Really fresh and inviting. It’s just screaming I AM A SOUR!! lemon and lemon zest with a little bit of wood and white currants. Oh it tastes refreshing this. It has a mild oily mouthfeel, somewhat mouthdrying and the carbonation level is just below average. More soft brett lemons, I’d like to say the conserved kind, but I’m not completely sure that I will. It’s definitely not over the top acidic or sour this, just plain delicious and refreshing. Rum? Could have fooled me anytime, but I get a slightly candy "vingummi" thing in the finish. As is plum zest and sour apricots. Damn, this is a complex little thing. Highly enjoyed. 24.05.2013

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
16/12/2011 Brasserie 4:20 (37 months old, on tap). Bevuta al Sour Winter Festival. Dorata, brillante, con riflessi ambrati chiari, schiuma assente. Aroma molto delicato, con note acide tipiche del lambic stemperate magnificamente dalle note di rum, (vaniglia, melassa e alcool). In bocca ha un attacco acido moderato, una notevolissima morbidezza e un finale dolciastro che stempera l’irruenza del lambic. Corpo medio, consistenza velluata, vinosa, oleosa sul finale, carbonazione soft.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at CP&K meet the brewer event. It pours hazy orange-amber, with no head or carbonation. The nose is wood, smoke, rum, sweet berry, green apple and farmyard. The taste is full of rum, hay, grass, alcohol burn, tart Granny Smith apple, weak lemon and spice, with a tart, dry finish. I though this one was a bit more obvious and harsh than the Laphroaig version. Still good, but I prefer the Laphroaig.

On tap at the ’meet the brewer’ night at CP&K. Hazy light brown beer, no head. Smooth, low carbonation palate. Moderate sourness, just very slightly acidic. Nice woody rum. Dry and pleasantly sour finish. A really nicely joined up sour and as several people mentioned it shares some characteristics with the better rum barrel ciders.
