This would probably look best in a champagne flute. In a tulip glass it looks only so-so, with a weak, frothy head and a lightly hazed, golden body. But the aroma makes up for the appearance. Delicious notes of freshly pressed apple juice, hay, cut grass, damp wood, lemon and weedy fields. Bright and lively yet earthy at the same time. The texture is soft and slightly chewy, which encourages savouring its very nuanced flavors; green banana, lemon peel, white wine, and something fungal like the rind on a good, old Cheddar. It's tart rather than sour, dry and slightly bitter but not aggressive in any way. Very good and something I would love to pair with food. Possibilities: Cheddar, mentaiko, game curries, roast pork belly, shellfish.

330ml bottle from Brewdog's online shop (£3.50):
An enjoyable offfering & one I enjoyed more than I expected, particularly for a new style of beer to me. I was expecting a funk & tart overload with too much sourness but in actual fact it was fairly well balanced & mellowed out the more time I left the beer sitting in the glass as well. It was definitely a new & unusual style of beer but one that was quite drinkable & seemed a good introduction to the style.

When you pour this beer, it pours a cloudy and straw yellow with a medium white Head. The Head retention on this one is really good, probably because both the blended beers have Wheat in and the Champagne yeast keeping the carbonation going. It fades to a thin head and eventually a cap on top of the brew but it doesn’t disappear all together. On the nose there’s Apple, Lime, Wheat and some Belgian Funk. On the Palate there’s a nice Bready, Wheat backbone that carries throughout tasting, on top of this there’s Sour Apple, Lemon, Lime, some Floral Notes and some nice Belgian Funk. I was expecting this one to be a lot more sour, but it’s mild on terms of Tartness and it’s a very complex brew. It’s very full bodied for a sour beer with high Carbonation. It finishes Medium Dry.
