Keg in Pivni, York. Pours hazy blond with a white head. Shocklingly sour and salty at first. Lots of gooseberry flavour. This is a full flavoured beer, but it just wasn’t pleasant to drink. Just too salty for me.

Keg Euston Tap London 18/03/14. A hazy olive/diarrhoea coloured beer with a white head and lace. Sour and quenching. The nose is a bit thin. Sour and salty in the mouth. Funky fruit. Doesn’t have the drinkability of the lime version but it’s OK in small measures.

brokensail (9935) - Orange County, California, USA - MAR 12, 2014
On tap @ Beachwood Brewing. Hazed orange colored beer with a small white head. Nose is nice and tangy. Slightly salty, tropical, citric aroma. Lemon zest, unripe berries, and a bit of a briny funk. A good tartness/twang to the palate. Lemon and lime acidity along with some unripe berry and sour melon. Light saltiness, green olive brine, and a subtle bready sweetness. Pretty decent beer.

jmgreenuk (3563) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 9, 2014
Tap at Brewdog Birmingham. Poured a hazy medium amber with a frothy white head and lots of gassy bubbles. The aroma is light yeast, light citrus. The flavour is light sour with a tart gooseberry citrus, slightly watery palate. Medium to light bodied with fizzy carbonation. An interesting experiment. Very refreshing and nothing dominates on the plus side but on the downside it is lacking flavour. It’s just a watery light sour and not much else. Would I buy another? Probably not, but mainly because there are better examples out there.

BiddleBrau (876) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 25, 2014
Tap at Iron Abbey. Hazy golden thin white head. Minimal nose. Light and crisp. Lemony and citrus notes. Pretty nice starter brew or on a hot day.

Golden with a a thin white head. Sweet with a tart, sour finish. Plenty of fruit, gooseberries. Thin, watery texture. More like a cider than a beer. I kind of get it, but it’s not really my cup of tea.
