Ungstrup (38384) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 2, 2007
[Another century celebrated with a Mikkeller beer - this time 7400] An unclear red beer with a lazing off-white head. The aroma is sweet combined with acidic notes, as well as wood - very authentic lambic like. The flavor is again a combination of sweet and sour with notes of wood and hints of cherries. Imperial Lambic - nice.

[Draught at Købehavnske Øldage] 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.

Papsoe (25056) - 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. Sweet’n’sour with some almost vinous accents. Very pleasant, delicate and balanced. No trace of them cherries though. 190506

chriso (21656) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2007
Draught at Kobehavnske Oldage, May 2006. Soft, pale orange/red colour. Slightly cloudy. Plenty of funky lambic character in the aroma. Quite fruity on the palate but the lambic character is less pronounced than on the nose. I found the alcohol level a bit intrusive and the mouthfeel a touch too boozy for a lambic. Very interesting but not, for me at least, 100% successful.

fiulijn (21214) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 16, 2006
Draught at Copenhagen Beerfestival 2006
Hazy red amber color. Cellar aroma. Very close to Belgian lambics, but softer. It has some fruitness.

3.3
yngwie (17234) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 23, 2006
On tap at Cph Beerfestival. Amber, almost clear, without carbonation, and some white bubbles on top. Sour and yeasty aroma with green apples. Quite citric and astringent flavor, with apples and barnyard. No cherries tasted. Tart and astringent mouthfeel, but surprisingly no alcohol, even though it is a bit warming. Not a classic, but an interesting experiment with a pleasant outcome. (060519)

Theis (15151) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 2, 2006
Draught at Københavns Øldage 2006. A very nice lambic. Orange cloudy, white head. Sour as i should, light fruit. Do it again boys !!!

3.7
madsberg (11776) - Søborg, DENMARK - MAY 25, 2006
Draught @ KØ 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.
