COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This NW style sour is a crisp, refreshing wheat beer that was barrel-aged for seven months then additionaly aged with strawberries for another eight months. Bright, sweet strawberries and light candy notes greet you in the nose. A light tartness and berry sweetness intermingle on the palate, giving way to a light, sparkling fresh berry tartness in the finish. It is better as a breakfast beer or a dessert? You decide.

Garrold (3775) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2016
Bottle. Little Leeds Beer House. Bit of drama on opening. Hazy, gingery, pinky orange. Thin, fairly dense, lasting, white head. Nose has Strawberry Mivvi ice lolly. Get the oak, in spades, and the vanilla. Missus canít bear this one, getting plastic and UHT milk. Anyhow, I donít. Taste is light sweet. Nicely tart, and light dry. Foamy mouthfeel. Some acidity. Dried out toward the end, with the vanilla, oaky sweetness lingering on the lips. Nice one.

Hazy amber-red colour. Thin head. Aroma is big jammy strawberry. Tart, woody, some phenols that arenít all that pleasant, and then lots of jam. A bit too artificial for my taste.

75cl bottle @ Shrewsbury Beer Share, March 16, courtesy of Mike. Many thanks! Pours hazy pink, white head. Aroma is strange mushy strawberries. Aged complex berry sour flavours with additional strawberry sherbet dust. I have a sweet tooth so I enjoyed it.
