3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draught @ Sail & Anchor, Fremantle.
Produced up a pastel, opaque yellow with a whispy head of white. Aroma is sour, hairy, Brettanomyces fuelled (?), fruitful but ill defined, acidic and quite lactic. A strange ride between Greek yoghurt and the white of the watermelon. Sour, tart, mildly hairy with supple citrus, and lactic, yoghurt notes. Spritzy and light but yet full in finish. A flavour of cucumber dominates Ė question mark. Lemon zest lingers amongst the yeasty yoghurt notes. This is strangely addictive stuff though my notes have very little positives. I liked it. It excites the taste buds. I give it two thumbs up and donít know why!!

On tap at Archive. Pours cloudy and golden with fluffy white head. More tart than I was expecting and didnít detect much remnant of watermelon. Once I got into it, I found it really quite refreshing.

Draught @ GABS Melbourne 2015
Pale looking cloudy thing
Smelss sour, lactic, citrus, watermelon gone bad.
Light, very tart/sour, lingering on the palate.
Comparisons to sour Warhead candies are apt here - lightly acidic, odd candy (water)melon flavour in there.
Bit hard to drink, intense!

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy light golden, a little fizzy white head. Nose lots of lactic tartness, slight grain, maybe a hint of aromatic melon. Flavor is really sharply tart, mouth puckering, a little watermelon. Light, medium carb. Really great and refreshing.

Looks like alkaline solution. Aroma is off cheese plus watermelon. Love the taste - watermelon subtlety and strong short sour hit. Good medium carbonation. Nice Berliner!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A smack-in-the-face-sour with a subtle hint of something special (watermelon). Given the low alcohol content this is one to have another of for sure (in my book).

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at The Archive for Armakeggon. Pours clear and champagne, it tastes just like a watermelon warhead! A bit too sour to drink a lot of but very interesting indeed.

PAle gold with no head. Aroma was watermelon, slightly citrusy. Taste was sour, wheaty. Really not my cup of tea so a hard one to rate

A polarising brew - donít know what the aim is here - sour... I get that but just not a great drink - and not beer as we know it, Jim...
