Leighton (10512) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2013
Bottle shared at Bruce’s in London. Thanks to Jay for trading me this one. Hazy gold with a creamy white head. Mild tangy clementines in the nose, touches of flowers. Decent funk in the flavor, light sweetness, hints of white bread, some oranges. Light bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Dry finish with light sweetness, modest bitterness, some white grapes, lemons, oranges, slight herbs. Quite delicate. Very drinkable.

375ml bottle (bottled 5/12) in a tulip. Pours pink/amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of flowers, some light tart notes, light malts, hibiscus, and a little spice. Flavor the same with a nice blend of flowers and a tart ale. Average texture. I wish it was more sour, but still really good.

Thanks mverity! Dirty haze rose pink color with white head. Aroma of funk sour cherry and light watermelon. Taste similar slightly less sour. Very good and drinkable. A bottle to the dome would be very enjoyable.

Hoppypocket (408) - Trois-rivieres, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 13, 2013
Ppir is clear orange/pinkish with white head with good lacing. Aroma has lots of flowers, homey, light citrus, funk. Taste has some flowers, honey, brett, lemon but then it gets followed by lots of acetic notes. Low body and medium carb.

Glouglouburp (5944) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 11, 2013
In short: An acetic oaky sour pale ale with a whole lot of flowers. Just ok.
How: Bottle 12.7oz, consumed approximately 9 months after first bottle rating. Bottle from my man dmac, thanks a ton Dave.
The look: Opaque pale auburn color body topped by a small beige head.
In long: The strong nose blends a bouquet of flowers over a typical acetic American pale sour, some fruity esters (watermelons, apricots, bananas) also join in. Taste is pretty much just that. Strong acetic character typical of too many American Sours, plenty of oak, tannins, earthy flowers of all kinds, bee pollen, grapefruits juice, chewing a mouthful of flower petals, licking a lithium battery. Some funky notes here and there but it is buried by the acidity and sourness levels which are pretty high, this is definitively a sipper. Lots of hard bubbles that increase the already high acidity sensation. Not a bad beer but I’m getting increasingly tired of acetic American Sours, maybe it was better when fresher and probably less sour/acetic. It was almost hard to finish my bottle. This beer is made using roses and other flowers, however I don’t think there was anything gay about me drinking a beer made with roses and other flowers while I took a warm bubble bath, although it might be a bit gay-ish that my friend Dave was in there with me.

Boutip (4642) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 5, 2013
Bottle: Poured a light dirty pink color ale with a quite large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of tart notes with light oak and some dominant notes of hibiscus. Taste is also dominated by tart notes with light oak notes with some dominant flavours of hibiscus with light dry Brett finish. Body is quite full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Very well brewed with very good refreshing factor.
