Bottle at home. Clear ruby red with pink head. Blackcurrant, fruitstones, sour cherries and berries, barley, dry wood. Over medium sour with sweet backbone. Medium body, soft carbonation, fruitjuice texture. Sour, dry and woody in the otherwise rich fruity finish. More like a sour fruitbeer than a lambic with fruit.

Bottle from systembolaget Sweden. Medium and lasting pink head. Pit aroma. Big red fruit aroma. Big body. Muzzleloader (35) - FINLAND - SEP 2, 2016
Bottle from Systembolaget. Deep red color and pink/purple small head with no good retention. Nose is immediately tart and cassis with some earthy notes. Sourness tickles lips, but some cassis sweetness balances this nicely. Taste is mainly sour, very low bitterness, and light sweetness. Crisp fizzy carbonation. drjoeng (1380) - SINGAPORE - AUG 21, 2016
Tapped out red purple.
Nose has tart acetic aromas that one has come to expect of all the spontans by Mikkeller. This one has a bit of blackcurrant sweetness to the nose, but just barely so, reminiscent of Ribena. Inviting nose.
Mouthfeel is juicy. The palate and mouthfeel are remiscent of cranberry juice...for me, just screams Ocean Spray Cranberry Juice. The malt palate is predictably subtle given all the strong wild, sour, tart and fruity flavors. A very nice iteration of the spontan series.
Finish is juicy and tart.
