English: In the spring of 2010 we discussed the possibility of making a collab with a few other micros. The theme was going to be a blend of different sours. The collab, alas, never came into being but the beer was brewed, so we just let it sit and mature for 2 years. Now is the time to share, what came out of this funny experiment with the finest gathering of beer geeks ever to assemble in Copenhagen, Europe, the world...

On tap at CBC2012. Fine golden in the glass, almost no head. Sourish-salty aroma. Starts sourish-spicy, modest salty. Finish milder, less sour. Fruity hints of apricot. Nice!

Draught@SBWF2012. Hazy golden colour, small off-white head. Aroma is very tart and sour with some slight sticky notes. Flavour is rather similar, sour, tart and acidic with a quite dry palate.

olsvammel (4326) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 17, 2012
Sample at SBWF 2012. It had a sour smell with grapefruit. Very stong sourness on the taste, but I love it. Very nice.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2014 Tap (SBWF2012)
Horse blanket and vinegar aroma. Super vinegary taste. That’s to be parsed as (super vinegary) taste, not super (vinegary taste). However, once you’ve choked back the vinegar, there is a nice wheaty body to it. I don’t want vinegar in my beer. It is basically a brewing flaw, no matter what style of beer you are making, you’re not let off the hook just because you’re claiming to be trying to brew a lambic. Acidity good, aceticity bad. There might be a nice lambic possible from their base recipe, but this ain’t it.

Marduk (4203) - Reval, ESTONIA - OCT 8, 2012
Tap @ SBWF 2012. What is this in my mouth? Dry, acidic vinegar packed with medicine and sweat! I can’t get that taste out of my mouth. I want to scrape my tongue. Beer not for me.

VsXsV (2965) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2012
Draught at Stockholm Beer and Whiskey Festival 2012. Bit hazy, golden liquid with small to medium white head. Aroma of acetic acid, lemon, funk (sweat/leather) and grain. Very acetic. Taste is dry and highly sour with notes of lemons and acetic acid. Kind of stings from all the acetic acid... Medium bodied with low carbonation. Waaaay to much acetic acid.
