Sample glass at Mikkeller bar. From notes.


A - Hazy, dark gold or orange in colour. No visible carbonation. Just a few big bubbles floating on the outside on the top.


S - Very...lambicy. Lot's of sourness. Grape comes through alot. Sort of a floral element is there as well.


T - Quite a bunch. Grape is very present. There is some apple too. Very strong and aggressive.


M - Very mild carbonation. Medium body. Sour finish lingers a while. Almost a harsh finish. I didn´t have to choke it down, but it was a chore towards the end.


D - Couldn't have too many of these. I was very happy to try it and would again if offered, but the rough finish after a while takes some points away, even though it tasted great but was a little hard at the end. I would have 2 or 3.
