3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2012 Keg at the Evening Star Brighton. It pours cloudy red with a medium pink-white head. The nose is creamy, fresh cherry, lactic, wet leaf and butter. The taste is dark cherry, lip-smacking sourness, lactic acid, cherry pip and red berry yoghurt with a long, sour finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation and high level of sourness. The diacetyl on the nose is off-putting, however the taste makes up for it.

UPDATED: JUL 20, 2016 Traditional ale like. Some yeast, lots of wood. Very dry, maybe a bit too subtle sour. Will developed, not really to cherry like, but it sure adds character. Great woody brew. (15cl pour at the sour beer tasting event at M-Cafe Leuven)

Light red with no head. Flavour has some glacé cherries and quite a bit of smoke and leather. Strange.

On keg, King William IV, Leyton, London, 9/1/2016. Pre-family meal.
Excellent sour notes. Very much like a Frank Boon gueuze. Bone dry. Loads of cherry-cola on the tongue. Nice carbonation. Like a bottled beer. Not ott not too soft. Great drinkability. The lactose was there but it was not at all heavy or prominent which is exactly how lactose should be. I did get a huge abundance of cherry-cola and I thoroughly enjoyed this. Excellent.

Keg at Old Coffee House. Buttery, little sherbet, only mild, slightly watery cherry vibes. Not really much sourness or tartness here. That said, once the wet yeast vibes die down it’s pretty drinkable. Overall a rare fail for a Brodies sour sadly.
