This was a really good beer for the moment. It was hot and this was refreshing and a bit of a wake up call on the palate.
Haven’t had many sours but this seemed to get the mouth puckering sour aspect pretty perfect.
Enjoyed the beer.

On tap at Craft Clerkenwell. Clear pale gold slightly hazy lasting white head. Good spritzy sherbert berliner weisse. Sherbert hop and sour. Wow what a combination. And it’s from Huddersfield. I mean really. If you have been to this dour Yorkshire town no way would you think something this vibrant coyld come from there. I’m having a synesthesia moment. This tastes of bright warm yellow. Lovely. I melted

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Churchkey. Poured a light hazy yellow. Aroma is very mild, light cereal notes, crisp light lemon. Flavor is some tart notes, light lemon notes, plenty of tart funk. Pretty easy to drink.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Churchkey. Hazy piss colored pour, small bubbly white head. Nose and flavor hold bitter lemon pith, unripe stone fruit, white wine vinegar, and tangy funk. Spritzy carbonation. Good, not great.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg at Craft. Cloudy yellow, completely still, no head or lacing at all. Looks like squash. Smell - toned down lemon and lime, something dodgy going on in the background (sick?), especially as it warms. Body is medium to light, carbonation is medium, not frothy. Taste - watery orange squash up front, sour lemon comes in towards the finish, balanced out with a malty musty bitterness. Not overly tart. A decent easy drinker which deteriorates as it warms.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tap at Craft, keg I think. Golden with a white head. Slightly funky (not in a good way) with biscuit aroma, musty foot odour. Taste is mouldy, musty, cheesy and biscuity. Dry. Everything I hate about this new berliner fad

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Draught at Oliver Twist, Stockholm, 18 Jan 2014) Hazy yellow colour with brief, frothy, white head. Fruity, malty nose with lemon, white bread and hints of sweaty socks. Fruity, tart taste with notes of citrus, green grapes, lemon and white bread. Balanced grassy bitterness. Light body, quite dry. Quite fresh and fairly sour. Interesting beer. Quite nice.

Draught @ William K. Annankatu
Aroma is rather soapy with some citrus and peaches. Flavour is sour and rather tart with citrus, some lactic acid and raw apples. Not my thing.
