Tap at Beervana - Awesome sour explosion, also some notes of sweetness hugely drinkable, makes your mouth pucker up, thinking of this makes my mouth water.

Excellent. The nose has a really measured level of funk. It’s not too much, but the farmhouse is ever present. In the mouth it is really easy drinking. Good body and carbonation. Kind of a Cantillon Lite, but all the more enjoyable for it. Great stuff.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Had from the bottle at a private tasting (the beer was from the tap put into a bottle). Pours quite a pale golden with a small white head. Loads of sour citrus on the nose with your typical funky farmhouse aromas and yeast. Add some oak in there and this one smells very special. Taste is very fruity but has a nice balance between sweet and sour. Loads of citric fruits and sour acidity. Very good, unique beer from Feral

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap. Chardonnay-like appearance with a small white head. Honeyed malt, sweet oranges and a modest but powerful mustiness. Taste has a nice balance of sweet and sour and has oranges and some grapes. The sourness doesn’t have the presence in the mouth that it did on the nose. Gentle carbonation on a slightly drying finish. OK but nothing special.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Produces a yellow gold, not quite bright but radiant in the afternoon sun. Excellent head retention, a pad of densely creamy off-white bubbles sets up shop on top and lasts the length to leave a muck of rings down the glass as it empties. Got all the right funk and junk on the nose. Big souring citrus burst preludes some hessian sack and baby spew yeasty notes, some rust and oaked white wine, very nice! Similar to the nose in the mouth, ’Funky’, quite dry, yeasty, malt acidity with a very tight swallow that is hessian rough and sour. Good depth of flavour on the palate but it holds little length in the swallow. An addition of ripe strawberries and raw white grapes come in late. Quite a light, delicate body, claps out with good astringency in tail even as it warms. Overall this is fantastically drinkable and refreshing. A beer lovers dream and I reckon a novices bevvie of choice come the right time. Nice stuff. (Draught at the brewery, Baskerville)

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at The Local Taphouse Melbourne. Pour is hazy golden with a rocky, yellowish, thick head leaving sheety lace. Aroma is cheesy funk, brine, cedar, Brett, Berliner Weiss tart apples and fresh citrus, white grapefruit. Taste is sharp, Bretty, earthy spices, cedar, light white wine vinegar, Berliner Weiss lacto. Fresh, Bretty, infinitely refreshing palate with excellent lactic sourness in the back of the throat. Best beer from Australia? By a landslide.

Tried on tap at Feral. Clear yellowy gold body with lasting white head. Sour in the aroma and the taste but moreso in the aroma. Wheat notes in the taste. Refreshing.
