The PucaThe Puca
Notes: The Puca was a mystical force, manifesting itself in multiple forms. It was believed that beer was created magically, a sort of soup possessed by the spirits. But wild yeast was of course the magic at play. For this cloudy, crisp, tart and fruity beer style, we have fostered our own wild yeast. It brings the complexity, the surprise, and, it certainly brings the magic.

Pink clear body with a little white head.

This beer is very sour and very drinkable from the berry character.

Champagne-like mouthfeel.

Nice one.

Wow! It's pink! It smells like sweet hibiscus! It is a sooooourrrr pucker, brrrrr! Amazingly refreshing, I really love its zestiness, juicy sourness. When the sourness is gone you start feeling the berries in there, thus creating an amazing experience - and still it remains to be a SOUR and not a fruit beer. Very well combined with their wild yeast - read the can notes for the sory. I really enjoyed this with its extremities, a very nice and refreshing sooooourrrr!

Canned in a crafty craft can
Pours an odd looking inpenetrable matermelon flesh pink colour with no head
The smell is strong distinctive and to be honest I dont like it, the mix of ginger and hisbiscus creates a compost like smell to me, but will be objective with score because there are nice individual elements within that aroma
the mizture is really sour fruit cocktail
its great its refreshing with out being watery but to me it stinks, in the olfactory sense

A 330ml bottle with a BB of Dec 2017. ABV is stated as 3.5%. Acquired a while back from the Brewdog webshop. Named after a Celtic spirit, the label describes it as a wild-fermented fruit beer with lemon, coriander, hibiscus, ginger, rosehips and wild berries included among the ingredients.

A: Poured into a Duvel tulip. Bottle conditioned. A lightly hazy orange-pinkish hue with fine suspended sediment and good carbonation. Produces a decent head of creamy white foam that lasts for a moment or so before collapsing and dissipating.

S: Aroma of intense fruity notes with hints of raspberry, red berries, mild lemon, subtle spice, delicate lactic acid and faint herbs. Reminiscent of a fruit cider. Quite distinct from the average beer but very nice.

T: Tastes of tart fruitiness with notes of raspberry, red berries, sour lemon, lactic acid, mild earthiness, a twinge of spice and faint stewed leaves. Very sharp and bone-dry, with no bitterness to speak of.

M: Mouthfeel is smooth, tingly and dry, with prickly carbonation and a touch of spice on the palate. Highly astringent. Aftertaste of sour raspberries, fruitiness, lemon, lactic acid, earthy yeast and faint spice.

O: An impressive fruity beer - very clean and sour. Looks great, while the aroma and flavour are stuffed with fruity red berries/raspberry, lemon, earthiness and lactic acid. Nice body and texture for the style. A great palate refresher. Goes down all too easily; well worth sampling if you like sour brews.
