Bottle 75cl. @ [ Chris O’s pre NYE Tasting ].
Unclear hazy medium yellow orange color with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, white to off-white head. Aroma is grapefruit, citrus, barnyard, rubber. Flavor is heavy acidic, vinegar and sour with a long duration. Body is light to medium, texture is watery, carbonation is soft. We have this after having Russian River Temptation, Lost Abbey Isabelle Proximus and Girardin Gueuze Black Label, and I must say the Girardin beat the American breweries, they are all nice sour but they still have a long way to go to match the real thing ;o)) [20081230]

22 fl oz bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a small, fizzy and white head. Aroma is citric and crisp barnyard acidic. Dry, acidic and yet very elegantly fruity. Mild acetone to acidic touch on the back of the tongue. Lingering brett and orange fruity flavoured. Lasting into a the far finish leaving a dry sensation and a lasting brett and fruity flavour. Nice.

Scopey 5K Tasting in deepest Croydonia. Big thanks to Paul for breaking out this whale for his 5K. Lightly hazy gold beer, small white head. Palate is light and crisp. Light sourness with touches of wood and worcester sauce. Little citric peel bitterness and sour sherbet. Light floralness and tangerine. Finishes semi and crispy. Very nice.

harrisoni (13848) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2009
Bottle at Chris o New Year tasting 08/09. Cloudy yellow gold, lasting white head. Yeasty farty aroma. It’s a sour beer. It’s a tad harsh, but it’s ok. Lemon squashy. Had this along with Russian River Temptation, Lost Abbey Isabelle Proximus and Girardin Gueuze Black Label and the Girardin beat the other 3 into a cocked hat. I like the fact that American breweries are playing around with sours, but they still have a long way to go to match the real thing.
