DanielBrown (3748) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2014
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines. Rather enjoyable. Silky, honeyed sour, with tropics and sweet throat burn. Went down in double quick time. Winey. Great stuff.

jackl (4379) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAY 15, 2014
Bottle @ Home. I’ve been sitting on this for a while. Hazy deep orange pour with a tiny head that quickly fades. Lemon cake, mellow citrus. A bit of soap-covered peaches. A bit of underarm and musty gym locker. Wonderfully tart, vibrant flavor. Peach and raspberry fruits. Clean lactic finish. Light body, soft carbonation. Very refreshing stuff.

SlackerMads (1439) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2014
Bottle, bottled in August 2013, consumed in October. Unclear orange with a small diminishing white head. Baking yeast, red grapefruit, wheat, light red berries, gooseberries, very light lactic. Tropical fruity hop notes? A bit puzzling, but kind of nice. Light body, light/medium sweet and light sour.

jjsint (666) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2014
Bottle from Bitter Virtue, Southampton. Hazy dark gold, almost no head. Scent of sour lime, Pixy Stix, cedar and a whiff of nicotine. Pretty cool. The taste is a straightforward sour with sweet overtones. Chalky sour candy aftertaste. An odd but strangely addictive beer. Good sour.

danlo (1090) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2014
330ml bottle from Vesuvio, Darlington. Hazy orangey-brown amber colour, foam white head that dissipates and aroma of fresh citrus zest. Taste is light malt and a sour grapefruit citrus, with some slight yeast, wood & nutty notes. Tart juicy mouthfeel, medium bodied, fine carbonation, sour dry finish. Quite refreshing.

jmgreenuk (4109) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 14, 2014
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Poured a slightly hazy light amber with a bubbly broken white head. The aroma is a lovely strong zesty citrus and yeast. The flavour is moderate to light sour with a citrus, yeast, acidic, light aspirin palate. Medium to light bodied with flat carbonation. An interesting beer from Buxton. Nice to drink and quite refreshing too, but i’d like to see more sourness and a little more life. It was a little too flat for me. It was bottled in Aug 2013, so it wasn’t that old.

OleR (4786) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 5, 2014
Draft @Søernes Ølbar. Pours an unclear orangey amber, with a blond lace on top. Fruity milky sour orange peel aroma. Hint of hay-ish hops and soft wheat malts. Light off-dry malt body. Fine acidic tart fruit flavors with a touch of lactic acids. Soft carbonatian. Dry acidic tart fruit finish. Refreshing. [22.07.13]

c0fein (180) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 31, 2014
330ml bottle @ home. From Saveur Biere.

Not much experience of Berliner Weisse. Not so sour what I expected, more like pungent and Groovy. Strange acquaintance.

Peu de mousse, jolie couleur ambrée. Je dois dire que le goût est surprenant. D’habitude je n’aime pas trop ce qui est trop aigre mais les notes fruitées sont excellentes. A découvrir !

Very little head and a golden pale body. In nose it is fruity with grape and apple aromas. It tastes sour as it name says. Very inteteresting beer
