4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma has a nice phenolic note to it with hints of fruity acidity. Medium barnyard funkiness and some light oak notes. Hint of a floral character.
Pours a clear amber orange with a small white head that shows average retention then recedes to the edges.
Flavor has a faint sweetness upfront but that quickly recedes. Moderate barnyard funkiness with some light oak notes. Some fruity acidity with some juicy citrus and light cherry character. Light tropical fruit. Dry finish with a faint herbal character and some lingering funk.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Soft character to the carbonation. Low but present acidic astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall a very enjoyable beer and a nice departure from the wheat based lambics. The barley adds a nice darker malt character to it making for a more phenolic beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle shared at home. Pours hazy light amber, with small white head. Unusual aromas, in the the sourness is clearly there, represented as cider-like smells, but with lots of floral notes and grass. Vinous qualities when drunk, which is surprising for the strength, sweet and sour on the taste, not much bitterness though. Very nice.

Draft at the Great British Beer Festival 2013.
Poured a hazy light brown/ golden colour. Aroma of tart lemon, white wine vinegar and straw. Sour vinegar flavours grab the tastebuds, with grain, vegetable and unripe flavours. There’s a bit of a burst of hop then a nicely balanced sweet/ sour ending.
