Scopey (6865) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2012
Bottle, many thanks to Bruce at ChrisO. It pours hazy orange-amber, with a thick off-white head. The nose is fresh citrus fruit, tangy grapefruit, mouldy wood and light smoke. The taste is lemon, grapefruit, juicy watermelon, zippy citrus peel, earth, mouldy wood and sharp tartness, with dry, lightly tart finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Interesting and well balanced.

Big thx. to Martinus for gifting me this one // I am always up for more good free sours :) // 66 cl. that looks like 75 cl. cheeky // Apparently won the 2011 Silver Award for Belgian Lambic Geuze style at the European Beer Star Awards, neat // its a gusher which is never a good sign, especially with sours // hazy, very murky peach coloured beer with a BIG slowly descending white head, lacing is awesome // smells of soft, murky fermenting peaches & summer fruits, that red wine smell that this type of beer have, red wine gone lactic with wood or something like that, this is strongly lactic, souring, touch exotic fruits, youghurt // round soft mushy overripe fruits, apricot, peaches, summer fruits, strongly lactic / youghurt, stone fruit, perfume :), once again that woody lactic red wine thing but not dominating the fruits or the youghurt // murky, hazy mouthfeel // good but feels a bit like the body needs to be thinned out by either age or by more aggressive bacteria but that might be a personal preference

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 20, 2012
Draft at The Farmers’ Cabinet in Philadelphia, PA. Pours a hazy, dark golden orange/amber color with a two finger frothy white head that slowly fades into a lasting ring.  Streaks of soapy lace left behind. Musty, funky aroma with subtle smokiness and sweet malt.   Earthy with a faint barnyard character and some acetic vibegar.  Nice malt presence for balance but pretty funky. Medium bodied with a good balance of earthy funk, sweet malt, subtle smoke and acetic vinegar.  Tart and puckering up front with nice funk and sweet acetic acid that lingers over the malt notes into a dry, slightly smokey finish.  Hints of caramel and toffee with rauch characteristics creeping in on the back end.  Very unique and complex.  A bit tough to drink but pretty tasty.

vyvvy (3996) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUL 26, 2012
Pours golden orange with a light hazy and a tight white head. The aroma has a big leathery / tobacco presence along with a sharp sourness. Medium / light crisp refreshing body with sharp carbonation. Starts off with more sourness and citric acid. The leather / tobacco is still there, but more in the back. There is a bit of smokiness as well. The finish has a lingering sour bite. Nicely done and unique for the style.

thornecb (4402) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 12, 2012
Pours deep amber into a tulip. Off-white head with medium retention recedes leaving spot lacing. Sweet tobacco aromas. Slightly tart summer fruit upfront turning to a slight band aid before the lasting earthy finish.

jredmond (5334) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JUN 26, 2012
Sampled at THE FESTIVAL, MA. Pours a hazy orange body with frothy lacing. Aroma is tart citrus, funk, and peach. Mouthfeel is thin with notes of light acidity, orange, funky citrus, overrippened fruits, oak, and a bit medicinal in the finish.

NikkTwist (1625) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 5, 2012
Draft at Farmers Cabinet. Hazy orange amber with a foamy white head. Medium fruity sour. Light brown sugar sweetness. Some noticeable peaty smoke in the middle. Good carbonation. Medium body. Disparate elements that still play well together.
