Ernest (7248) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 6, 2014
Bottle. Head is initially large, frothy/fizzy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately yeasty (dough), with notes of lemon/lime zest, gum, mint. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, fizzy/lively carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic. Another generic, unremarkable sour/fruit beer from Haand. Aroma is kind of like a Belgian golden ale, and the doughy yeast is a bit strong. Ok flavor balance...quite tart but not super sour. Better than the Krekling, but still meh.

Bottle - Yeasty stone fruit and a sweet jammy nose. Clear gold with a nice white head. Light tartness, bright flavors of stone fruit and yeast. Fruity and sweet, with lots of Belgian yeasty character.

maneliquor (3483) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 8, 2014
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours hazy orange with a dense white cap. Nose is like sherbet, kind of sweet and sour with a focus towards salt, orange and musk. Nice light sourness throughout this. Very musky and candied sort of sour with a mintiness coming into the fray. Reminds me of those lollies which are also wrist bands that you eat off - but with more sourness. Very sherbet like. An oddball sour but I enjoyed it

reebtogi (5522) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 2, 2014
500ml bottle pours a hazy pale golden orange color with a generous white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is light fruit with grains and rind. Taste is a fruity and malty sweetness with a fruit rind bitterness and a dry lemony finish. Medium bodied with decent carbonation leaves a pleasant sensation on the palate. A well done fruit beer, enough fruit present, but not overpowering. Recommended.
