Cooperation between Girardin and Revelation Cat, in a series of young lambics tapped over green hop at beer festivals, in this case Nelson Sauvin. Unblended lambic so no head, lightly hazy orange blonde colour. The aroma shows, as expected, all the complexely refined lambic attributes of lemon pee, hay, dry sherry, straw, green apple, horseblanket and so forth, but is in this case a bit overshadowed by the green, fresh hoppiness from the Nelson Sauvin. Taste refined, ’malse’ lambic, very very fruity, sherry, hay, sour but in a gentle, more lactic than citric way, drenched in a green, crisp, bitter hoppiness that carries long into the finish; interesting to link lambic sourness to hop bitterness, but to my taste the latter was a bit too dominant.

This is a competitor for Cantillon when it comes to tartness. Quite a complex taste, with a finish that my wife described as "a hint of vomit". Some bitterness and acidity there do in fact have something which resembles bile and stomach acid. But, contrary to its somewhat disgusting description, this is an excellent lambic. Girardin never disappoints.

Sampled @ Copenhagen Beer Festival 2010. Hazy orange body with an off-white head. Aroma is citric fruity with rubber and some barnyard. Flavor is light malty and quite acidic. Sweet, bitter, fruity and acidic. A nice combo, but I prefer the Simcoe.

Don’t know what those Revelation Cat guys are up to...but i like it. Sampled their beers at the 2010 Yokohama Beer Fest and they stood out as the only brewery offering Lambiks and they wer dry-hopped lambiks to boot! Wow! Sour, hoppy, acidic, peppery...and fun!

KnutAlbert (6713) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 17, 2010
Copenhagen Beer Festival 2010. Rounder, softer, more fruity than the Amarillo version. Yet the lambic shines through, giving a crips lemon sourness to the finish, underlined by the hops.

On tap at KØ-10. A hazy, golden beer topped by a small, dense, off-white head. Tropical fruits and some rubber in the aroma, lemon peel too. Lemon, barnyard and tropical fruits in the mouth, dry, full-bodied and puckering. Really lovely flavor in this one, but I’m still doubtful whether the dry-hopping is a good idea or not. At least it’s not a good idea to discard the non-dry-hopped lambics. 100506

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 31, 2010
On tap. Cloudy and opaque orangey golden with a small, rough off-white head. Dry Lambic notes in the aroma but also distinct Nelson Sauvin. Medium body, flat, dry, smooth again with evident Nelson Sauvin. Dry and tart finish. I think the hops are coming through the most in this version. 080510
