4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Amber color with rich frothy foam. Dry woody nose with hints of oaky vanilla, grapefruit and gentle phenols. Flavour is dry woody and grapefruity, with notes of goat cheese, gentle phenols, ripe green apple and oak. High acidity here. Musty mouthfeel. Almost puckering after due to the tannins and the dryness. Really complex.

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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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!

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.

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.
