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 – 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 don’t know why!!

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

On tap at Brewski. Rating from early May 2014. Waited a long time to try this and wasn’t disappointed. Big flavour for such a low alcohol beer.

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

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler thanks to MordeciaFunk as part of beeradvocate Aussie BIF. Pours a hazy light golden straw with pinkish tinger. Great aromas of waterman, wheat and light citrus like acidity. Good stuff. Taste is quite tart though not agressively sour. Slightly minerally and very dry on the finish almost reminiscent of champagne. Easily got through the growler. Great beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours pale straw with a quickly fading head.
Sweet watermelon evident in the aroma, kinda like watermelon lollies. Some wheat and a tart character follows. The watermelon note is pretty tempting!
More watermelon as a flavour along with the promised tartness. Remains very approachable, nowhere near mouth-puckering.
Could use more carbonation.
Very refreshing stuff.

Tap at the sail and anchor. Pours a cloudy straw colour. Very light. Nose tonnes of watermelon and zesty lemon. Taste is incredibly sour with a watermelon burst at the back end. Incredible stuff. Very refreshing and funky.
