Experiments. Inventions. Adventures. This is a limited edition brew from the frontier of beer. You may like it, some won’t. But you will never know, until you give it a go.

Bottle. Pours a dark orange colour with a thin white head, aroma is light with some the wine coming through strongly, the taste is medium bitterness at first, then comes the sour in the mouth with a dry bitter finish.

beer-yum (1361) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 8, 2015
One of the better local (New Zealand) sour beers. Lacking only the subtlety of the masters (in Belgium).

Cantabrian (990) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 5, 2014
Bottle shared with the generous Jimthechap. Lovely afternoon that ended up with a misplacement of my notes. Now, here they are. This awas a spectacular coppery beer, terrific, with that aroma of Belgian sour fruits aging in the cellar. Flavour was sour. Damn sour. Apple sour. A nice extravagance.

CapFlu (5101) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 28, 2014
Nice vinegar aroma. Does have a light Flemish sour taste. Good tart base and a citrus touch. Sour cherries, somewhat dry and thin through the finish. Good. Thanks Dean!

MrChopin (4303) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 19, 2014
murky strawberry tea, thin white large bubbled. Musty nose, red fruits, heavily dusty. Flavor is super dusty throughout, manure and berries across mid with lightly tannic with acetic acid in the sticky finish. Pleasant and balance if a muted.

Great balance on this beer. Orange pour with ok head and lacing. Light floral yeast with some bretta. Light sour finish. I like this one a lot. Bottle thanks to Travlr at Epic Sour Tasting.
