mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 31, 2006
Draught. Orange-copper with a white creamy head. The aroma is great - cherry juice, brett, oak, and earth. Not particularly wheaty but there is some raw fruit flavour. Decent balance between the tartness and the cherry sweetness. No alcohol is detected either - 9.2% lambic! Very good Danish rendition. Sampled at the Kbenhavnske ldage 2006 on May 20, 2006.

Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 30, 2006
Draught. Hazy orange colour with a small white head. Light acid, fruity, grassy aroma and a sweet dry, light acid, sharp fruity taste. Medium to full body with a very dry finish.

ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 30, 2006
Cloudy orange colour with a small thin off white head. Malty, light tart fruity aroma with notes of yeast and some sweetness. Fruity flavor with a sharp acidic note that is balanced with the wood notes.

lachesis (757) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - MAY 29, 2006
Very hazy amber beer with a slight orange to deep-orange glow. The froth is slight beige and the beer leaves a nice white lacing on the glass. Aroma is refreshing, crisp and grassy. It has aromas of goosberries, rubarbe Greek youghurt, blood-oranges and some ripe strawberries. The taste is again crisp, nobel sourish with a lactic carracter planted on a medium sliky body. The afthertaste is dry, slight grassy with a interesting bitterness that ends with a twist of limepeel and fresh mint.

joergen (26845) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 27, 2006
Draught. Cloudy red coloured with an off white head. Aroma of berries, wood and hops. Flavour of cherries, wood and hops with acidic notes.

madsberg (11637) - Sborg, DENMARK - MAY 25, 2006
Draught @ K 2006: Dark amber coloured. Hazy. Small off white head. Tarts and horseblanket in the aroma. Some sweetness to balance. Flavour as well is sour and citric with the usual earth and horse notes. Quite refreshing and grapish with some fruity notes. No alcohol is tastable, but a light warmth is filling the palate. Medium bodied. Quite nice for a danish lambic.

sunevdj (4030) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - MAY 22, 2006
On tap at Kbenhavnske ldage 2006. Pours a hazy red/brown. Sour and fruity with a hint of alcohol. Nice and refreshing. I wish my vocabulary was more extended with the lambics but Im still learning to like this style. Best Lambic Ive had to date.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 22, 2006
(On tap) Hazy reddish amber with a tiny head. Distinct, sourish Brett aroma. Rather light body - I cannot believe this is 9.2% ABV. Sweetnsour with some almost vinous accents. Very pleasant, delicate and balanced. No trace of them cherries though. 190506

Belgo (154) - Kge, DENMARK - MAY 22, 2006
Draught at Kbenhavnske ldage 2006. Orange and with an off-white head that disappears quickly. The aroma is classic lambic; tobacco, bretty aromas of horseblanket and some lime. Quite fullbodied for a lambic, but you dont sense the alcohol at all. Dry and sour aftertaste. Interestingly, the cherries arent really present in any major way - it feels much more like a "plain" lambic than a kriek. Truly impressive!

omhper (24380) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 21, 2006
[Draught at Kbehavnske ldage] Clear reddish orange. Tart lactic nose. Very dry with near full body. Some barnyard and citric acid. Authentic lambic flavour, but not as complex as some of the real masterpieces.
