Leighton (18222) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2013
On tap at the Old Coffee House - London. Pours cloudy yellow with a fine, white foam head. Citric lemon nose. Light sweet flavor, very crisp, loads of biting, acidic lemon, faint dough. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Very crisp to finish with slightly more mellowed lemon acidity sting, mild dough sweetness. A great, very refreshing Berliner weisse.

Tap at IMBC. Pours a pale straw/gold, moderately cloudy, reasonable white head. Amazing aroma of citrus, grapefruit and lemons, with a slight wheatiness and perhaps some bread dough. Flavour is a great hit of sour grapefruitiness with some lemon as well. Very refreshing and just the beer you need in the middle of a beer festival to clear the palette. Over all this is a really good beer, perhaps a little one dimensional but great none the less.

At The Old Coffee House, Soho, and again at William 4th, Leyton. Very pale straw colour, slightly hazy, almost no head. Quite slight aroma, mainly lemons with a hint of green apple. Flavour very crisp and tart, lots of lemon, green apple, lychee. Very refreshing, really delicous sour beer.

In Soho somewhere with my brother. The night of the steak!!! Cheers mate. Murky orange with no head. Aroma is lemons, lilt, berries, quite subtle. Flavour is tongue dancingly refreshing, light bodied, packing a decent amount of flavour and sourness. Very nice.

jackl (7011) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 12, 2012
Keg @ The Old Coffee House. Pours a light, slightly hazy yellow color with no head. The nose is sharp lemon juice, some funky sugar sweetness. Very clean. The taste is light tart lemon curd, mild balancing sweet flavors. Very light body, lip-puckering. Soft carbonation. Overall, this was really pleasant. A nice drink on a hot day.

Keg in The Old Coffee Shop. Colour is very very light pale yellow, touch of haze, light white bubbley head. Nose to be frank is urine, with a bit of lemon. Acidic, musky, pungent. Taste is sharp sour lemons, so much so that you get a shiver right up your spine. It’s fresh sour lemons, but with some wheaty malt that softens the sourness. Very refreshing.

Scopey (12245) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2012
Keg at the Hope Carshalton and Old Coffee House, Soho. It pours hazy, pale straw yellow, with a thin, bubbly white head. The nose is fresh lemon, lemon peel, passion fruit, tropical juice and wet dog. The taste is fresh lemon, zesty citrus peel, light wheat, passion fruit, with a mouth-puckering sour finish. Light-medium body and fine carbonation. Very fresh and zesty. Not particularly complex, but smooth, tasty and highly drinkable.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 6, 2012
On cask at The Independent Manchester Beer Convention. Pours a pale straw colour with a fair white head. Aroma of barley sugar, lemon, blackcurrant and oak. Similar flavours with moderate carbonation, light CO2 prickle and a foamy mouth-feel. Nice and dry to finish and nicely tart.

Keg Old Coffee House London 23/11/12. A very pale straw coloured beer with a white head and lace. Pretty damn sour and spritzy. Tart, really lemony and just totally lush.
