CaraCurtis (116) - Nevada, USA - MAY 18, 2012
Fruity and full of sweet flavors upfront. This seems to take an immediate turn to a dry, leathery and more barnyard aroma. This beer is opaque and to me impressive. Orange, white head, lasting frothy head. It is bubbly upfront, minimal lingering with some aspects, while longer lingerings of a few of other characteristics. As it warms, the bite/sourness comes present.

Scopey (6317) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2012
From Bottle at Sour & Bitter 2012. It pours cloudy light orange, with a thick white head. The nose is farmyard, sulphur, blue cheese, funk, tart lemon, lime, grapefruit and cabbage. The taste is red apple, pear, vinous notes, white grape, grape skin, lemon, grapefruit and a bit of alcohol warmth, with a smooth, tart finish. Medium body and prickly carbonation. Decent.

Starts very sour, dry, modest yeasty. Mild fruity notes of lemon. Finish less sour, still quite dry. Aftertaste is dry with lemon notes. A good one!
