Bov (13284) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - FEB 1, 2008
courtesy of Per - cloudy bordeaux colour without foam; aroma of cheese, cellar and berries (blueberries ? maybe), moderate malt body and with a fair acidity; quite dry finish with more fruitiness and a lingering acidity - clean and very drinkable

Miksu (5052) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JAN 3, 2008
Bottle at Stockholm Beer Festival 2007. Hazy dark red color. Sweetish, acidic, fruity, berryish and appley aroma. The same elements are also present in the flavor along with notes of apple skin. Not bad, but the word lambic creates expectations which this beer does not fulfil.

3.2
fiulijn (21399) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 1, 2007
Bottle at Stockholm Beer Festival 2007
Red / dark amber color. Interesting aroma, mixing sourness, berries, light glue and citrus fruits aroma; light cellar smell too. Medium-light mouthfeel, some lemon juice flavor, sour but not aggressive, a touch of berries and malt, a bit astringent at the end. Not bad, but something is artificial.

larsniclas (7234) - Billdal, SWEDEN - OCT 27, 2007
Sampled at SBWF, 2007.
Blue-redish with small head.
Rather sour with a light fruitiness. Some rubber-notes.

3.4
screwball (1099) - Motala, SWEDEN - OCT 18, 2007
Red-brown body and a tan on the head. the head is redish. Malty, fruity and lite sour aroma.

Marsiblursi (3083) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 11, 2007
(Bottle) Pours light hazy mahogany. Ratter authentic lambic aroma with a medium citric/sour profile. Some unripe berries and fruits are also present with vague hints of blueberries. Light tones of unripe blueberries in the flavour with a nice medium sour, tart and dry base. Quite good, but a lack of complexity is notable if you compeer it to the Belgian lambic´s.

3.3
ante (3373) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 10, 2007
Bottled at SBWF. Pours out in a cloudy reddish purple colour with a small reddish head. Lemon, light woody sourness and forest in the aroma with notes of blueberries. Fruity and rather sourish flavour of mild lemon and blueberries. Dryish finish with notes of blueberries and lemon-peels. Felt a bit lame compared to the blueberry lambic (and most traditional lambics) brewed for Ölbutikken in Cph. Still pretty tasty, refreshing and drinkable.

3.3
Svesse (8825) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2016 (Bottle, Stockholm Beer Festival, 29 Sep 2007) Reddish brown colour with purple notes, brief frothy reddish beige head. Acidic, fruity nose with hints of wild berries (hard to pinpoint the blueberries). Fruity, sourish taste with notes of blueberries (better blueberry character in the taste than in the aroma). A bit thin. Interesting, but to be honest more interesting than impessive.(7/3/6/3/12=3.1) Rerate: (Bottle, 12 Dec 2016) Hazy red colour with dense, pinkish head. Fruity, sourish nose with blueberries, lingonberries, citrus, hay and barnyard. Fruity, tart taste with notes of blueberries, lingonberries, lemon, grass and a tart finish with a good blueberry character. Medium body, quite dry. Has spent some years in the bottle, which seems to have been good for it. Tasty, mellow and well balanced, with a good blueberry character. But hardly as complex as the best Belgian lambics. Quite nice.

2.6
Theis (15151) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 4, 2007
Bottle at "Stockholm Beer & Whiskey Festival 2007". Cloudy red - pink head. Sweetness, white sugar, blueberries, light acid, light bike-glue. A bit watery and boring.

3.5
TBone (18359) - Pori, FINLAND - SEP 28, 2007
Bottled

Deep red color, not much head. Sour fruity aroma, some horseblanket. This lambic is sweet and soir, like drinking blueberry milk mixed with lambic. Sourness is not as intensive as in the "real thing".
