Danish: Vi bryggede denne lambic helt tilbage i juli 2009 på vores gamle brygværk. Basisøllen undergik en ret kompliceret mæskning og blev derefter kogt med gammel humle. Så lagde vi øllen på Bourgogne-fade i hele 3½ år tilsat en surølskultur, som rummede hele 3 Brettanomyces-stammer og en hel del andet godt. I 2013 vækkede vi øllen fra dvalen ved at tilsætte friske bær, som den derefter er lagret med i 3 måneder. Vi er glad for friske bær, men kan ikke anbefale nogen at købe 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 3½ 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.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 04.05.2013, tap @ CBC:
Frisk syrlig lukt med preg av frisk rips, sitron, syregras, korn, cornflakes. Frisk smak med preg av sur rips, korn, eddik, syregras. Middels bitterhet som set litt. Interessant i beste fall.

Draught @ CBC 2013 [ Red Session ]. - Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013, Sparta Hallen, Gunnar Nu Hansens Plads 11, 2100 Copenhagen, Denmark

Unclear - hazy medium red - pink colour with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly diminishing, white - pink head. Aroma is moderate to heavy yeasty, baking yeast, moldy - fusty, red currant, clove notes. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet and light acidic with a long duration, moldy - fusty, red currant. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. So so - did not do it for me !! [20130504]

Pink with a small white head. Red currant is dominating the aroma, withsome wooden notes. Dry and tart berry flavour with yeast. Quite a bit of jonge lambik character

Bragesnak (5394) - Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 1, 2013

CBC 2013. Pours cloudy red with a small diminishing pink head. Aroma is sour funky stable old cheese :(. Flavor as bad as the aroma, old cheese doodles and sweatty gym shoes. Yaiks, how can they pour this crap to peolpe?

Leighton (21494) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2013
Tap at Copenhagen Beer Celebration - Session 2. Pours cloudy pink with a whispery white foam head. Lots of that young lambic buttery biscuit stuff in the nose, hints of tangy fruits. Tart flavor with sugary and jammy fruits, corn flakes, buttered biscuits. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Crisp finish, some sour burn, more buttery biscuits, cereal, etc. So so overall. Not the best effort.

_angst_ (4802) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 3, 2013
Draught @ CBC2013. Recreated rating since I lost my original one. Pours hazy pink with a small pinkish white head that leaves a small trace on the glass while dissipates. Smell is sour with crackers, lots of sweat, hay, barnyard, horse blanket, urinal blocks, manure and hints of red currants and lemon juice. Taste is basically freshly squeezed sweaty old man with a dash of currants and lemon. Mouthfeel is dry, tart and medium bodied. Finish lingers forever with that sweaty old currant massaged fella not letting go of your tongue. Amager is a great brewery and I I don’t mean to be mean but something in this beer went horribly horribly wrong.
