Davros (1939) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 8, 2013
Pours amber with a fading head. Nose shows floral hops with a little fruit too. Some lemon notes too, along with an earthy note and a little sweet malt. Lovely mix of elderberry, lychee, lemon, earthy notes, a hit of acidity and some biscuity malt. Incredibly drinkable. Nice high carbonation works very well.

dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - JUL 13, 2013
Hazy amber yellow pour, thin white head. Soft lemony dry hops, touch of lychee, definite soft weiss character underneath. Dry, dry wheat but not quite lambic sourness - soft and complex with some hay flavours, tiny touch of vinous stuff, a whisper of pine resin lurking somewhere too. Elegant supple tartness on the finish. Absolutely astounding. Improbably perfect soft prickly carbonation. Call me a fanboy but this is up there with Axe Edge for me. Beautifully refreshing.

Leighton (10969) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2013
Keg at the Euston Tap - London. Pours murky, amber-gold with a creamy white head. Great lacto tang in the aroma, ripe lemons, mild baby diapers. Light to medium sweet flavor with tangy citrus, nice lemon bite, a bit of jammy fruits. Light bodied with average, massaging carbonation. Clean finish, further tangy lemons, a bit of funk, ripe tangerines. Wonderful stuff. Really clean and refreshing.

McNeillR (1221) - SCOTLAND - JUL 14, 2013
Murky light brown body, ringed white head after dissapaption. Bright lychee, creamy white pepper and nutmeggy nose with a wink of tart. Initial taste tooka few sips to get a handle on, the wheaty sour carbonation combination couldn’t be more on the button if it tried. Swirling wheat throughout but is subtle enough, tightly entwined against a sour blend of pink grapefruit and cloudy lemonade. The twine that binds it all together is a green, tropical hop that isn’t noticeable from the nose at all. Like swinging from four Tropicana cartons One after another. Carbonation sprinkles on the finish with a pat on the palate dryness that’s more well done than there there. Proper wig out tart bitterness on the linger you forget it’s a sour, so little scraping of the finish you expect. The ABV is smartly capped, because you just want to keep taking swings at this the moment you’re done savouring. Phenomenal collaboration.

Keg, Bow Bar, Edinburgh

stravale (2099) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - JUL 17, 2013
Keg @ The Caley, Edinburgh [120713]
Amber, hazy, thin white head
Aroma - very soft sour, zesty fruity hops, good aroma
Taste - Quite sour initially, some old lemon zest hops, light pale fruity malts, getting some cereal, soft sour citrus fruits, fairly simple but really decent flavour, very refreshing
Palate - Medium carb and body, soft texture, fairly oily probably from the oats. Finish is citrus lemony zest hop then later on a touch of cereal
Overall - One of the best sour beers I’ve had...very drinkable...sour notes are just right - nice and mellow, good summer drink. Really harmoniously put together.

Scopey (6833) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2013
Bottle at home. It pours cloudy golden orange with a small white head. The nose is tart green apple, grapefruit, white grape skin, tangerine, floral and wood. The taste is crisp, tart, lactic, grapefruit, orange peel, Granny Smith apple, sour apricot, sherbet and wood with a dry, tart finish. Light-medium body and fine carbonation. Crisp, tart and refreshing. Eminently drinkable. Prett delicious stuff.

maneliquor (3110) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 6, 2013
Bottle from BD online. Pours cloudy, vibrant orange with a small white head. Nose is full of lemongrass, lime leaves, grass, lemon zest and light pepper. sweet and sour with appeal. Taste is superbly balanced with light lemon rind, lemongrass, moderate zest, some spice and a touch of sherbert. Drinkability is out of this world. Damn good. Plus the label is fucking awesome

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 !
