15th February 2014
Scopey 5K Tasting in deepest Croydonia. Thanks to Colin. Hazy pink - purple beer, small pink head! Palate is light and dry and a little crisp. Nice fruity blueberry blackcurrant does battle with sour cheesy yohgurty things. Finishes dry and crisp
Skewed but not awful.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared at Scopey’s 5000th rate. Cheers to Colin. Pours bright pink with a sticky white head. Nose is candied cherry, very sweet raspberries and tarty plum. Touch sugar forward. Taste has a little more citric lemon zest feel to it, heavy sherbert, touch bubblegum with big and sweet red berries. Very spritzy feel to this. Ok

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle thanks to GT. Pours a hazy deep rose color with pinkish head. Aromas of blueberry skin, yogurt, medium ripe plums, and very slight sour. The palate is dry and watery, with flavors of red fruit, light tartness, and very slight citrus. Nice, but needs more tart.

Sampled at the brewery. Once of their first bottled beers. Average sour beer with the nice fruitiness of the blueberries and plums... could use some aging

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle thanks to a trade! Pours a slightly hazy light purple with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma is full of rich tart plum with some dark blueberries and a touch of sour wheat. Flavor is more mild with sour wheat and a growing note of tart blueberry as well as just a hint of light plum.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 17, 2013 Bottle: thanks, Jeff! Very clear, ruby red grapefruit color with a lavender & pink tinted head that fades to a skin & collar rather quickly. Aroma has notes of funky old popcorn, berries, light cotton, cereal grains, musty wheat, & some generic fruitiness. Taste loses the popcorn funk aspect & has more appreciable tartness. Raspberry, blueberry, plum, & a quite tart finish with lemon flesh... Slightly acidic in the finish, but not to gut burning levels. Very nice & tart, though. Great flavor for 2.9% ABV.

HUGE THANKS TO THE LOINE MAN!!!
Holy Moses, bottle from box aroma. This one is a thing of beauty. Pours the most brilliant hue of dark pink I’ve ever seen in a beer.
Aroma is lactic sour lemons, yogurt, some light sour fruit. Summertime breeze. Berries from the field. The sea washing up on shore in the night. Drunk fumblings in the dark with your middle school girlfriend. Taste is similar - slightly bacterial, modest tartness, modest funk. But oh, so well done. This is a beautiful beer. Finishes quickly with an abrupt tartness and a slight lip smack. Beautiful.
