Bottle, 33cl, 1 y.o. Pours intense tea with thin and short-lasting foam. Aroma is sour, very intense, biological, yeasty. Taste is amazing, very sour, a bit salty, with low bittering finish and dry aftertaste. Cannot feel roasted barley. Highly drinkable and enjoyable.

Sjohnh (250) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2014
Clear, attractive red brown colour. No head to speak of. Light body and little carbonation, but the sourness gives an impression of a fuller body. Sour, sharp fruit, tea. Strong but well balanced sour ale.

Kita (1194) - Koper, SLOVENIA - SEP 9, 2014
Bottle, 0.33l, shared with Hoppiness crew. Hazy ruby brown color with small off-white head. Aroma of wine, sour cherry and strong notes of wood. Taste starts musty and with ripe fruits acidity, follows by tannin bitterness at the back of palate, which creates pretty warming mouthfeel. Medium to full body, oily texture and soft carbonation in palate. Liquid tart fruit cake...

uckelman (319) - Durham, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2014
Pours hazy reddish brown, no head. Sour apple and cider vinegar aroma. Jaw-clenchingly sour. The finish is disappointing---it would be better with a little sparkle from the carbonation, but there just isn’t any.

sarauckelman (215) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2014
Dark reddish amber, with a strong aroma of cherry jolly ranchers, until you put your nose in, then it’s just straight sour (yum!). No carbonation. Burst of sour on the tip of the tongue floods to the back, enough to make the jaws clench. Just excellent.
