2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2008 Re-rate - Jesus Mary and Joseph this even worse than I first thought. Tastes like the emptied water from a vase of flowers, strained through a bowl of pot pourri, add a dash of washing up liquid, ferment in a ladies handbag. Bit watery, fruitier than Carmen Miranda’s hat and sour. Doesn’t sit nice on the belly.

Bought a bottle from morrisons. Expected a bit more than just that watery sour taste with a hint of fruit. No, not for me.

Bottled sample. Orange peel/lime aroma. Pours with a cloudy yellow hue and frothy white head. Sour lemon/lime and orange peel flavour. Some spicey hints and a dry-ish finish.

[659-20070922] Cask @ The Magdalen (Oxford, OX). Aroma holds tangy fruit spices. Hazy, yellow body with a big medium-lasting foamy white head. Sour grapefruit citrus peel flavour hints at straw. Medium body. Interesting and different, but not particularly repeatable.

Bought for the bottle, always a mistake. This beer is sadly an acquired taste, it is very sour. Dark, cloudy colour promises something good, maybe I got a duff one.

The aroma is sour perhaps some grape fruit too. The flavor is also sour with a twist of grape - there is no aftertaste!

While entering about 30 ratings, this one turned out as #1100, which I just couldn’t accept, so I deleted it and am now re-entering it. Was going to bring a couple bottles of this home as they are nips, which meant one for me and one for Eugene, as I know he collects them. Well, not real nips, 8 oz, but close enough. Space ran out though, so I decided to just drink mine and toss Eugene’s. Hah! This shit sucks, though, I’d be embarassed to even have it on my wall, despite the size. Very fizzy head, aroma is your typical nasty cheap beer, with maybe a little coriander. Slight spices in the tastes, a little tiny bit Belgian yeast, but very raw and unfortunate. Tastes like spoiled cheese. Thin. Do not drink this.

Sampled @ The Prince of Wales, Shrivenham. Pale yellow in colour with some haze. Aromas of lemon, ridiculously strong tropical (mango and especially papaya), and light coriander. Lemon/lime flavors and sourness levels dominate the palate. Although the tropical notes are totally over the top and artificial tasting, the spice level seems about right. Yes, it’s not great, but at least they got one note right.

Yes a should know better and yes it was synthetic and contrived. Nevertheless was a nice spritzy citrusy beer with alot going for it. Nice as a novelty. Good marks to be chemists.
