75ml corked bottle. Exceptionally smooth and drinkable for a sour ale. Lightly hazy, medium golden with light airy head. Soft, but full, fruity, cider aroma. Taste is fizzy, light, mildly acidic, malt, cider, wood. This one has me rethinking sour ales, most of which are too tart for my palate.

Bottle dated 21/1/12

Pours bright with an initially fluffy head that dies down very quickly. Clear and crisp looking with few bubbles streaming up from the bottom of the glass. A thin film of head lingers for most of the session, however, this includes pouring the rest of the 750ml which agitates the head every pour.

This beer smells like dry white wine, pear, lemon with a slight tinge of vinegar. Funk is also present, but not predominant. The flavor of this beer is much like the taste; light fruits, funk, along with a huge pucker-factor that the sour characteristics bring. Very refreshing on the palate and quite easy to drink.

Overall, I'd highly recommend whether or not you are just interested in trying new styles of beer, or are already a sour fan.

Bitter for the first second then sour. A mineral cakey layer lingers with the sour patch party.
