Danish: Vi bryggede denne lambic helt tilbage i juli 2009 p vores gamle brygvrk. Basisllen undergik en ret kompliceret mskning og blev derefter kogt med gammel humle. S lagde vi llen p Bourgogne-fade i hele 3 r tilsat en surlskultur, som rummede hele 3 Brettanomyces-stammer og en hel del andet godt. I 2013 vkkede vi llen fra dvalen ved at tilstte friske br, som den derefter er lagret med i 3 mneder. Vi er glad for friske br, men kan ikke anbefale nogen at kbe dem midt om vinteren - ever!

English: This beer was brewed a very long time ago on our old system, July 8th 2009 to be precise. The base lambic underwent a rather complex mashing and then had a boil with old hops. Then we put the beer to rest for 3 years on a Bourgogne barrel adding a sour blend containing 3 different Brett strains and all sorts of cute bugs. In early 2013 we woke up the beer by adding fresh berries, and put it back to rest for another 3 months. We love fresh berries but cannot recommend anyone buying them in the middle of the Danish winter.

[email protected] Very deep pinky color, no head. Strong sweaty, rasberry aroma, old socks? Medium-bodied. Flavor has tartness, fruity candy-like flavors but also sweaty socks. Strange stuff.

Frisk lett kunstig fruktig lukt med preg av friske bringebr, korn, sukker, karamell. Frisk syrlig smak med preg av sure bringebr, bruspulver, korn, eddik, gras. Middels bitterhet som set litt. Grei, men litt rar.

_angst_ (4802) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 3, 2013
Draught @ CBC2013. Pours vibrant red with a small frothy pinkish white head that quickly dissipates while leaving a small trace on the glass. Smell is sour and fruity with crackers, crushed raspberries, lemon juice, raspberry jam, horse blanket, hay, raspberry hard candy, white pepper corns, cereal, leather and hints of cardboard. Taste sour, malty and fruity with crackers, crushed raspberries, hay, oatmeal, dry wood, horse blanket, carboard, lemon juice and barnyard. Mouthfeel is tiny round, tart, dry and medium bodied. Finish is sour and tart with raspberries, hay, oatmeal, cereal, lemon juice and crackers. Smells good and looks great, the rest is sadly a trainwreck

CBC. Cloudy red - pink beer. Vibrant pink head! Very dry palate, light and crisp. Sharp sourness, acidic cherry - raspberry. Unusual back drop of toasted hazelnuts that get quite strong in the dry finish. Different but not an easy drink.

Palme (4667) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 6, 2013
On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013. The most interesting appearance of all the beers at the festival I dare to say? Looks like red blood (not the royal blue) thinned down with white spirit, giving it a really glow-in-the-dark thing. Looks really good. Lacks a head. Tart raspberries on the nose with an acidity of lime. Unfortunately I just tasted it without finishing with the aroma, and it tastes mildly put, strange. Not something I had expected can be a good or a bad thing. In this case it was a bad thing. Really grainy y, lots of corn and starch. Some rise pudding tones here. The raspberries just drowns in the grains. No favorite. 03.05.2013

Tap at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013 - Session 1. Pours cloudy grapefruit pink with a creamy, white foam head. Fresh raspberry in the nose with light grass. Medium sweet flavor with jammy fruits, moderately acetic, with some buttery corn notes. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Tart raspberry finish with some acetic burn, more jammy fruits. So so.
