Bottle shared by Bill, pours clearish golden orange. Notes of wood, booze, sticky fruit, weird funk, and pepper. This is not good, not sure if its always been like this.

Bottle. Pours hazy golden, with a creamy head. Aroma is very nice sour and fruity, with some farmyard and brett, oak, balsamico and lacto. Creamy body, with light carbonation. Flavour is acidic with lots of fruitiness, brett, lacto and oaken barrels. Easy drinking, and with no alcohol heat. Lingering sour finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep amber with lively effervescence and misted by proteins in suspension. Lasting white foam with a mirrored sheen. Good lace. Aroma is dominated by lactic, yoghurt and hairy, Hessian Brett. notes. Tart fruit, oxidised white wine, woody spice and alcohol spice with a hint of vanilla and oak. Insanely easy drinking. Hides that ABV. Tart and tight with a penetrating vinous fruit sourness. Light oak and vanillin amongst wonderfully gripping and lasting fruit notes. A little warmth only builds as it warms fully. A little rough with Brett. notes lasting also. Body is light but rounded. Sprightly and lively. Not awfully complex but adorably quaffable. Lovely! (75cL, 2011 vintage, courtesy of the lads at Feral Brewing)

Bottle - Vintage 2011 - Light tartness and some white grape. Cloudy gold with a light head. Light sourness, malts and some light tomato with a dry and mild booze finish. The age on this bottle has not improved it, I remember it much better fresh.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at first sunday. Got the last pour so a little bit of yeast and grit at the end. Still really complex though. Fruit and fund and wood and oak. A lot going on in the aromas and flavors. Red fruit and plum flavors. Little bit of spice on the finish as well. Every sip is something different and new which is a mark of a ridiculous sour for me.
