COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: llen er brygget efter alle kunstens regler, og sdan som en klassisk belgisk lambic skal brygges, med umaltet hvede, og gammel humle. Og her stopper det traditionelle s, for den luftbrne gr denne l er gret med, kommer ikke fra omrdet omkring Bruxelles. Den er derimod Vesterbro. Den vind der blser ind over Hovedbanegrden og truer med at blse hatten af en rejsende, den vind der suser ned af Sklbkgade og fr en radmagre narkoluder til at skutte sig, den vind der kommer ned af Istedgade og tager rgen fra de rygende trunter foran Bang og Jensens med sig, den vind har nemlig ogs bragt vaskegte Vesterbro-gr med sig. Og den gr fra den vind, har gret denne lambic. Og man kan nsten smage, eller i hvert fald fornemme, de rygende og de rejsende - og alle os andre. Men det er ikke alene gr der gr denne l ekstraordinr, det er ogs frugten den er i den. Helt klassisk og traditionelt vil man bruge kirsebr eller hindbr til denne ltype, men Mikkeller er ikke god til traditioner, konventioner og det forventelige, og det er sikkert en af flere gode forklaringer p, at da det blev besluttet at der skulle frugt i denne l, s faldt valget p rabarber.

phredrik (1024) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - SEP 25, 2011
Tap @ Borefts Beer Festival. Pours unclear pale yellow, no head. Aroma has a lot of lacto, almost like a yoghurt, some brett notes, barnyard, hay, somewhat funky and a fruity hint of strawberries, stable, vinegar, sour orange, but the lacto is really taking the picture here. Taste is still very lactic, A38 yoghurt, rather milky, a held back tartness, lemony. The taste isnt very complex and doesnt match some of the complexity of the aroma.

On tap at BBF. Hazy pale yellow/almost white colored pour. No head, just bubbles around the edge. Almost like a cloudy champagne in color. Very spicy aroma with a huge funk, earthy, grassy, sweaty. Big tartness in the mouth. A tart vegetable type taste. Very tart, very. Sour and funky with a huge peppery presence. By the way, its a tart beer.

Koelschtrinker (18341) - Kln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 11, 2011
Suerlicher, erst spt fruchtiger Geschmack, der das Rhabarber deutlich macht. Erfrischend, im Nachgeschmack aber zu heftig. Die Suerlichkeit ist gelungen, der Frucht (oder besser Gemse?) Geschmack dagegen weniger. 10/9/8/3//6
