3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Draught at Man in the Moon, Stockholm) Amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Malty nose with dark fruit, apricots and toffee. Slightly sourish hints of tropical fruit. Malty, fruity taste with notes of citrus, apricots, and a fresh and well balanced citric bitterness in the finish. Medium body. Tried some of their beers a couple of years ago, but they were quite awful. Quality seems to be a bit uneven. This one, however, was really nice.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
draft, malmoe, "mandor" steakhouse. Aroma is a bit sour, cloudy yellow, very small head. flavor starts out sour then ends sweet. not much bitterness anywhere. i suspect a beginning infection, but wtf. this is draft , and the name is "fresh beer". if this beer is not infected, i sort of dislike the sour/orangy tones to the flavor. sort of like a weissbier might have some sour notes. just a bit stronger. aroma is more sour than taste, which makes you not want to drink.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught @ Två Bryggare, Ystad. Dense thin white head, mostly lasting. Orange-golden color with good clarity. Low aroma level; light malty, light fruity-acidic. Semidry malt flavor. Notes of sour/unripe fruits. Slim body. Spritzy mouthfeel. Dry, sourish ending. Drinkable, but a bit too far on the sour side.

Bottle, 4.8%. Quite acidic fruitiness to aroma. Cloudy orange colour. Very unstable white head. The flavour is slightly sweet with the same acidic fruitiness as in aroma. Takes a little getting used to, but OK.

Bottled. Hazy dark golden with a rich creamy white head. Acidic appley aroma with notes of bread and rubber. This is clearly infected...notes of sour apples, hay and straw in the flavour. Acidic finish of lemon, hay and green apples. Oh....this is a lager....oh, my. down in the sink

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2011 50 cl bottle from Swedish Systembolaget, bought in Skåne.
Hazy orange color, white to a bit yellow head. Head is thick and nice, but not very lasting. Very clear acid sour scent, almost a bit lambic smell. If this had been a blind testing I’d say this was a medium lambic or geueze. Acid sour taste, not as dominating as the scent was. A bit thin mouthfeel. Some metallic taste as well.
Is it really a serious infection here, or is it a fairly nice Swedish try to make a lambic beer? Probably an infection, but still, not too bad of you like lambic as I do... Rating is of my liking to it, not as a "premium lager", then it would get 0.5 total...
Draught at SB&WF 2011, first weekend
Cloudy orange color, white head. Slight bit acidic scent, also a bit malty. Malty, sweet, acidic taste. Medium to moussy mouthfeel, low bitterness.
Saw this on draught and thought "yay, I get to try it fresh and not infected from bottle, but alas, infected here as well...
