A 330ml bottle with a bottled-on date of Aug 2013. Acquired a while back from Trembling Madness in York. The label suggests the magnificent madness of a lunatic, but doesn't tell you much except that this beer is sour.

Poured into a chalice. Bottle conditioned. A very hazy orange-amber hue with plentiful fine sediment and low carbonation. Yields a small head of white foam that lasts for a minute or two before disappearing. Aroma of sharp, lactic sourness with hints of white fruit, hops, earthiness, faint husks and an underlying twinge of sauerkraut. Unusual and not entirely satisfactory.

Tastes of tart lactic acid with a dry finish. Possessed of considerable sourness, with notes of lemon peel, faint citrus, earthy yeast and a vague fruitiness. Highly attenuated and exceptionally dry, followed by a lingering acidity that envelops the palate. Mouthfeel is tingly and dry; verging on harsh, with decent body but a lack of carbonation that renders it rather textureless. Very astringent, accompanied by an aftertaste of lactic acid, earthy yeast and faint fruitiness.

Intriguing but flawed. I like Berliner Weisse and am happy to sample a new take on the style, but there's something not quite right about this one. Lacklustre looks with a weak head, and an aroma that is tart and earthy but spoiled by unpleasant undertones. The flavour is better; the sourness all-encompassing but more rounded. Body could use improvement, beginning with the carbonation. Hard to know what to make of it - perhaps I should have drunk it sooner? If sour brews float your boat then this is worth a punt.
