Bottle. Poured a purplish / pinkish tinged body and head. Initial pour was clear and cloudy up. Fruity floaters. Berries, fruitiness, and some funk. Subtle in a nice way with a lighter tart finish.

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.

Theydon_Bois (6986) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2014
Bottle split at Scopey’s 5K Extravaganza of Oompah Band meets doorbell music, acquired via an IP trade with Frank from PA - 15/02/14. Hazed crimson with a moderate light pink covering. Nose is tarte berry fruits, sour tinges, lactic ring, tarte blueberries. Taste comprises summer berry sherbet, plummy, tarte blueberry, soured berries, more lactic tinges. Medium body, fine carbonation, crisp close. Solid stuff, good flavour profile for 2.9%, nice tartened berry licks.

maneliquor (2782) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 17, 2014
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

Bottle, big thanks to Colin. It pours purple with a small pink-white head. The nose is earthy, barnyard, musty, kitty litter, plum, red grape, and raspberry. The taste is crisp, tart, plum, blueberry, black currant, plum, decent acidity, cheesecake and Granny Smith apple with a dry finish. Light- medium body and fine carbonation. Nice.

ChinoSkillzian (134) - The Hills, California, USA - JAN 21, 2014
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.

VTHopHead (1503) - Barre, Vermont, USA - JAN 18, 2014
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

deyholla (5959) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - DEC 29, 2013
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.

Deep pink/purple color. Juicy and sour, tart berries, lemon-lime notes. Dry finish, some yogurt sourness. Damn good stuff.

tectactoe (1167) - Michigan, USA - DEC 16, 2013
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.
