8th July 2013
Craft Clerkenwell tasting. Thanks to Aaron. Light haze on this gold beer, little pale cream coloured head. Light dry crisp palate. Lovely lemon, tart but never acidic. Finishes with a touch of herb and sherbet. Light dry lemony finish. Nice.

Pretty sure this is the one I had. Hazy light tan. Fresh, lemony, vinous...really interesting nose. Tastes lemony, a bit footy yeast, and a hint of lemon. The taste isn’t as clean as the nose, but there’s a nice tartness late that aims ambitious.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours hazy/dirty gold with a slight white head. Aroma is earthy, funky citrus. Sour even. Med body. Flavor pretty much the aroma. At first the mouth is torn asunder, but as fatigue ensues it simply becomes a "smooth" tart/sour earthy/funky citrusy wonderful ale. Not getting much oak, but that’s cool.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden colored pour with a white head. Really intense lemon aroma. A bit herbal, too. Some orange, grass, and oak. Candied lemon flavor, some limoncello, and herbs--maybe thyme? Oak, some grass, and orange zest. Nicely tart, both on the nose and tongue.

Bottle shared at CBC Clerkenwell - London. Big thanks to Aaron. Pours hazy gold with a light, creamy head. Big herbal aroma, some dough. Tangy flavor, thyme. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Herby and tangy finish, some lemony citrus. Quite unique and very tasty.

Kick ass beer. Oh yeah. Sparkling gold with a nice white head. Perfect lactic sourness, perfect amounts of unique citrus character, carbonation is spot on. This beer really is awesome.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle @ home, via trade with bytemesis. Thanks Mike! Also thanks to Levi for cracking a bottle @ MPLS LOL. Pours a hazy yellow orange appearance with a white head. Big lemon, tangerine, passionfruity aroma and the Buddha’s hand comes through quite nicely. Quite spicy / lots of Buddha’s Hand, tart lemon, orange citrusy, almost cinnamon-like flavor that finishes pretty tart. I think I got a lot more lemons when I tasted this with Levi. Very nice beer.

Pleasant lemony sour ale, from Craftshack. The citrus lends a nice complex citrus taste. Just great warm weather afternoon drinking.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Library Alehouse. Clear glowing orange. Wispy foam. Nose is similar to barrel aged stillwater cellar door with fresh blood orange, key lime, sage, grapefruit, some buttery oaked chardonnay, salt and pepper seasoned grapefruit. Taste brings extensive lactic acid all encompassing, key lime, grapefruit, sour unripe peach. Mild sage and salt. Another boss sour from Almanac. Russian River sacrilegious level of quality.
