A very strong sour beer that hides its strength. Mild aroma, good appearance, and just plain sour slightly malti flavor. other than that, so what.

Pours hazy orange with a good sized white head. The aroma has sourness, ripe stone fruits, raspberries vinegar and bit of lactic acid. It has a a medium body thatís a bit crisp, but fuller than most sour ales and a lot for fairly soft carbonation The taste starts with stone fruits, vinegar, berries from the aroma and malt that balances to keep it from being very sour. The finish is fairly crisp and refreshing, I donít know how this thing is 10% alcohol. It doesnít taste like it at all. Not up to the norm for sour ales, but itís quite enjoyable and less expensive than most sours as well.

wedgie9 (2501) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 27, 2015
Tasted on 2/26/15 from a capped 330mL bottle purchased at Woodland Wine Merchant. Pours clear, bright burnt orange with a thin white head that slowly recedes to an average collar with a large spot of lace in the middle of the liquid. The nose is very funky and earthy with some caramel bread and lightly nutty malt, along with a very light hint of a hard to place fruity aroma. The flavor is tart and lightly sour up front, very funky, some citrus peel, quite a bit of bread and caramel, along with the same hard to describe fruit from the nose. The body is nearly full with lively carbonation and a long fruity, malty bread finish.

Garrold (2152) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2015
Bottle. Beermoth, Manchester. Hazy, reddy amber. Minimal head. Sour cherry. Barely ripe raspberry. Bready, and yeasty. Some strawberry. Some pear. Smells lovely. Taste is dry, tart, acetic, and light bitter. Fresh, clean palate. No way does this feel 10%. Finishes soft, fruity, lightly acidic, clean, palate cleansing bitter. Stupidly easy drinking at this ABV.

Mild gusher but no surprise there! Murky amber beer with a cream colour head. Palate is airy, semi dry and crisp. Mild to medium sourness with a nice fruity tang. Mellow orange and light lemon. Light airy finish. Approachable and drinkable.

olliejobbins (1185) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2015
330ml bottle. took 10 mins to open carefully as i couldnít be arsed to clean up my kitchen after the inevitable gush. pours very hazy orange with huge head that disappears quite quickly. aroma is vinegary, vinous and yeasty. taste... not overly carbonated and the alcohol is completely hidden by the sourness. tastes like a much weaker sour ale but not in a bad way. very nice but not overly complex. just....sour. either you like it or you donít

Eructoblaster (3222) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 28, 2015
Bottle - 330ml. Hazy golden body with a huge white foamy head. Strong hoppy aroma with fruity hints. Its robust hoppy taste carries malty, citrusy, and flowery notes. Ends with a long sour finish. Good sour ale.

Bottle @ Three Notchíd Tasting. Thanks, Drake! Light amber pour with a small head. The bottle was unsurprisingly a gusher. Pear and apples. Fruit bread. Estery. Taste has a light sour tang. Lightly acetic. Hints of earthy pepper. Medium body, soft carbonation.
