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 (4275) - 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 (1915) - 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 (10777) - 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.

Bottle at Cotteridge Tasting, Saturday 24th January 2015 Light gold superbly refreshing. This is wonderfully tart the dryness remains throughout. Lovely lambic nose. Lovely zippy sourness. Superb, tastes likevyou are drinking something quite regal, this one really awakens the tastebuds. Loved it, will be hard to surpass this today, hang on there is quite a bit more left in the bottle, excellent. A8 A4 T9 P4 Ov18 4.3

neongolden (598) - LinkŲping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 21, 2015
(750ml bottle @ Akkurat, shared with friends Jan 4 2015) Pours hazy medium gold with a big dense white head that lingers with lace. Aroma is super fresh. Green apple, cut fresh grass, dandelion and other light spring floral notes, light lemon zest, young oak sort of wood, softly musty and earthy but more in support than dominant. Palate has the style of the nose with fresh grassy notes and that light spring floral character throughout. Apple skin, very subtle lemon/lime acidity, soft bright wood - is it young barrels? Some wheat, lightly grainy towards finish. Hop bittering in finish, quite dry, fresh dandelion greens on the aftertaste with a little wood. Light, zesty body with moderate effervescent carb. Absolutely bloody phenomenal.
