LoFi (1637) - GŲteborg, - NOV 18, 2012
Bottle, thanks to fredrik_ and Ludvig. Opaque orange red with a thick beige head. Huge aroma of green apples and vanilla. Taste: green apples, lemons, tart and sour, low on the funkiness, dry finish. Medium bodied, lively carbonation. Not a lover of the style, but this one definitely works for me.

illidurit (2224) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 22, 2015
Medium dark orange with a white head. Musky cinnamon, basement aroma. Flavor is so smooth, a bit of bright sweetness to offset the dank wood lemon sourness. Pleasant soft funky geuze, incredible.

UPDATED: JAN 28, 2015

Bottle share at Cotteridge Wines. With huge thanks to Beersiveknown. Cloudy hazy orange, small ring of white head. Aroma is spicy with dirty, earthy lemon notes. Body is medium, very foamy, low-ish carbonation. Taste is very, very sour and bretty. Lemon, vinegar, acidic. I know Iím a heretic when it comes to sours, but my palate isnít there yet Iím afraid! Very pleased to try it though.

BlackHaddock (4510) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2015
24th Jan 2015: shared bottle at the Cotteridge Wine meet. Brought and poured by a proud Steve (Beersiveknown) during the event. . Hazy golden body with a mean, thin white head. Sour from the off, this is one tart beer with a heavy citrus presence within itís flavouring. Not my sort of beer usually, but this was very pleasant and a good foil for the malty sweeter beers it was surrounded by on the tasting day. Acidic but nice!

Garrold (2210) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2015
Bottle share. Cotteridge Beano. In the midst of an onslaught, this stood out. Tart. Acetic. Rich. Smooth. Cleansing. All at once. Subtle lemon. Bit cheesy. Bit funky. Lovely balance. A highlight.

imdownthepub (11086) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2015
Bottled, sampled at The Cotteridge Convention, many thanks to Beersiveknown for this one. Hazy gold with white head. There is a pleasing citrus note in the aroma and this follows into the beer, nicely tart and palate cleansing, hints of bitterness, good restrained acidity. Really very pleasant indeed.
