Doing what they do best, our friends at LERVIG brewed a stout specifically for this blend with our Oude Lambiek. After it had spent some months in Cognac barrels, they blended the Lambic in. This blend was then matured in Akevitt barrels.

neongolden (2168) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 10, 2018
(Tap sample @ MBCC 2017 Red Session, Copenhagen) Pours dark brown to black with a small whitish head. Notes of several stripes of acid; balsamic vinegar, lactic and slightly citrusy notes, sour dark fruit, light solvent. These are matched with dark bread malt core, toast, wood, soft caramel, sweet plums, leather, light spirits. Rather watery on the whole, and thin in body, softly carbonated. Odd, not quite sure what it wants to be and not really coming together. I think Oud Beersel's oude lambiek is wonderfully balanced but for some reason this was not.

Bottle, pours black with an off white head. Very fruity aroma with elderberries, blueberries, light floral funk, vinegar. Taste has red wine, lots of berries, wood, vinegar, roast, cherries, spices. Fairly acidic, but not at all too much. Lovely stuff, works really well. On hindsight I should've bought more of this but I guess it's too late now.

tderoeck (11096) - Gent, BELGIUM - MAR 7, 2018
29/I/18 - 33cl bottle from Bierhalle Deconinck (Vichte) @ home - BB: 3/IV/22, bottled: 3/IV/17 (2018-48) Thanks to ElManana+1 for sharing the bottle!

Clear deep purple to brown beer, small irregular aery big bubbled head, little stable, non adhesive. Aroma: very fruity, lots of red wine, red wine vinegar as well, red liquorish, some tannins. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: pretty sour, some tannins, little bitter, lots of alcohol, red wine vinegar, soft roast. Aftertaste: alcohol, acidic, lots of tannins, spicy, dry finish, some ginger bread, bit metallic. Not a big fan of this stuff. Has an unpleasant vinegar acidity to it, and lots of tannins which I don't really like...

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2018 Кран. Отличное пиво для любителей кислых сортов. Больше ламбик, просто черного цвета! Кислое с нотками горького шоколада и черного хлеба.

Ritzn (2228) - GERMANY - FEB 8, 2018
Dark purple/brown. Aroma is yeast funk, blueberry, black bread. Taste is sweet molasses with sour berries and nice sour finish. A bit harsh and metallic on the other hand. Not bad. Kinda interesting.

jfb (7244) - GERMANY - FEB 8, 2018
(bottle) dark ruby-brown colour with a frothy beige head. aroma of cherry pips, toasted malts and earth, slightly grassy, with some notes of mascarpone, cinnamon and brandy. flavour is more of the same, lots of earth and cherry pips, slightly metallic, with a hint of toasted malts, dark bread crusts and a heavily tannic medium-tart finish. medium- to heavy-bodied with soft carbonation.

jonas (8625) - Garching close to the monks, GERMANY - FEB 8, 2018
Bottle. Tart/sour berry, bready roast. Medium full, creamy. Fairly spicy: cumin, oregano, leather, pralines, yuzu, toasted bread, berry retronasal.

SinH4 (7016) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - FEB 8, 2018
Bottle. Dark brown color with soapy white head. Aroma is cherries, chocolate, berries, leathery, caraway, ethereal. Taste is chocolate, wood, leathery, tannic finish. Caraway in the aftertaste. Oily mouthfeel with low carbonation. Crazy combination, very unique - but it works!

Draught @ MBCC '17 [ Red Session ]. - Mikkeller Beer Copenhagen Celebration 2017, Øksnehallen, Halmtorvet 11, 1700 København V, Danmark.

[ As Lervig / Oud Beersel Black Acid ].

Flavor is moderate sweet and light acidic with a long duration, dark malt - roasted, tart, funky, farmyard, wood - oak. Body is medium, texture is oily to watery, carbonation is soft. [20170513]

minutemat (6436) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2018
330ml bottle. Pours dark, deep hazy purple-ish dark brown, thin ring of pale tan head. Aroma is sour wild funk, some dark berries. Taste is crisp, sharp with a good sour balsamic bite, woody wild funk, tart hedgerow berries and additional deep malt / dark chocolate layers. Interesting, complex, different and doesn't really slot into any definable categories. Good dark sour, reminiscent of New Belgium's collaboration with Clutch.
