Craft Clerkenwell. Tuesday Horal Chugging Tasting! Handbottle - thanks to Leighton for this unique experience! Cloudy amber beer, no head. Light dry palate with a slight crispness. Nasty vinegar nose leads to a reluctant half mouthful. Incredibly strong lemon acid and balsamic vinegar that is quite lierally painful to swallow, burning al the way down. Leaves the mouth watering, presumably an auto immune defence mechanism to stop the enamel on your teeth dissolving. Certainly not in anticipation of another sip of this god awful beer. As an exercise in brewing, clever perhaps, but not something that should be unleashed on the public!

Bottle "thanks" to jtclockwork. Iíve now tried this beer on three separate occasions and, as such, I think I can give it - without reservation - the perfect 0.5. The bottom line is that this beer is, quite literally, painful to drink. Indeed, I am fairly confident that if someone actually drank more than a few ounces of this beer they would inflict physical damage to their body, likely by blistering the esophagus or, perhaps, burning a whole in the stomach lining. Because this beer is, essentially, pure vinegar, though far more acidic than any off-the-shelf vinegar.

The beer pours murky, copper-gold with pretty much no head. The aroma is all vinegar with hints of cherry, maybe some Jolly Rancher candy. The flavor is so sour you really canít pick anything up. Swirling the liquid in your mouth induces goose bumps. The beer first burns your mouth, then your throat. And then, once you think itís all over, the beer wreaks a special kind of havoc in your stomach. Yes, this is a beer that keeps on giving. The body is light and the carbonation is somewhat spritzy. The finish, as you can by now expect, is marked by harsh pain, burning acid, and extreme sourness. There truly are no redeeming qualities to this beer. I feel very lucky to have tried it, because I canít imagine ever encountering another beer of this caliber; it would take a monumental effort from a brewer to achieve something like Lambeak Wants Blood Orange again.

Craft Clerkenwell. Tuesday Horal Chugging Tasting, hand bottle (big thanks and no thanks to Leighton!!!), 17/09/13. Has the appearance of 3 day old festival toliet water, murky amber reddish with a thin off white head. Only the lack of floaty globules prevents this one from a string of point ones !!! Nose is straight from the inner workings of the Sarsons plant, rotten apple pulp, full on vinegar, mutated salt and vinegar crisp packet insides. Taste comprises battery acid (I can only imagine!), high octane burning vinegar notes. Not sure what kind of body this shit has - it just burns you, a real throat scraper, I pitty the plants in the bay window that got the rest of this - RIP. Undrinkable. I pulled 3 or 4 convulsive faces on the back of this ! James in NJ - you owe me one, how could you let this out of your country think disease/germ agents etc ;)

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2014 Bottle from mbrady. Shared at a tasting at my house because who wants to drink this by themselves? Pours cloudy orange. No head. Nose is foul - lots of acetone, nail polish remover, childrenís glue and some orange. Taste is same, but the orange comes through the nail polish better than expected. Though, still not nearly enough. Sour orange nail polish finish. Did I mention nail polish? Because thereís a lot of nail polish here. Nail polish. Nail polish. Nail polish. Medium body.

crossovert (7909) - Illinois, USA - JAN 6, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2013 Flat pour, acetone scent, some sugar, blood orange. The flavor is sweet and malty, blood orange, some butter, but mostly acetone. Definitely a poor buy. Hopefully dark horse can come through with a refund as they knew they were selling a sub-par product for a lot of money.

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2013 Taste, big thanks to Leighton.....! It pours murky amber with no head. The nose is acidic, strong vinegar, lemon, vegetables, mostly hard acid.....The taste is highly acidic, so much that it hurts, battery acid, turps, vinegar, nail polish, rotten vegetables, lemon, sherbet and more acid....really, really nasty. Perhaps the worst beer ever. It really hurts to drink this! Wow.

Bottle at jtclockworkís place for a tasting. Pours a hazed orange amber. Smells like straight up nail polish remover. Gag inducing. Even more acetone in the flavor but itís not as bad as it smells. There is a touch of orange, but the acetone is overwhelming. This is a bad, bad thing.

8/23/13. 750mL bottle thanks to Homer321! >4oz sample thanks to RBSH3. Ugh. Caramel orange-ish pour with basically no head despite a big hiss when the cap was popped. Awful aroma. Awful. Pure nail polish remover/acetone on the aroma with a big dose of alcohol. Veggies, caramel, and citrus if you really search through the garbage. Sweet, sour flavor, tons of acetone, burning, rotten fruits, veggies, caramel, disgusting. Worse than CIB, and thatís saying A LOT. Disgusting.

Bottle shared at Danís Birthday Tasting (Lyons, IL). Pours a nice darker amber gold hue, well hazed and dulled, a good haziness. Frothy offwhite head atop dies to a nice film, laces ok. Aromas show sour oranges, lemon, and acedic acid. A touch of acetone, nail polish, and bread. Initial is oranges, richly acedic and sour. Acetone, acid, and sour lactic twang. Wow, a bit harsh. Middle has a touch of a redeeming fruity citrus character, but really moves quite quickly back to acetone, acidity, and citrus. Wow. Backend is a bit harsh, acedic. Oranges, lemon, and touches of harsh lactic and acedic acid feel. Finish is a bit harsh, acedic, dry. Meh. Not good. But I was surprised that this wasnít as bad as people seem to indicate. People today said this bottle compared to the tap was considerably better.. but not good, certainly.
