3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bright yellow with a good finger of active, bright white head, plenty of carbonation and some turbidity. The aroma was quite pronounced: sour lemon all over. It is perfumy and enticing and the flavour is similarly strong. It was clean, sour and refreshing and I drifted off to sleep a happy man.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle big thanks to Kenny. It pours cloudy golden with a small white head. The nose is fresh, funky, white wine, gooseberry, lactic acidity, white wine vinegar and tang. The taste is crisp, tart, minerals, lemon rind, some acidity, white wine vinegar, white grape, gooseberry, creaminess and a decent lactic bite with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate, foamy carbonation. Well rounded and quaffable. Rather nice.

22nd August 2015
Bottle share at the Bottleshop. Hazy paleish gold beer, small white head. Minerally crisp palate. Nice light sourness, touch of lemon. Good white wine vibe, mildly sweet. A light crisp finish brings a touch of white wine vinegar. Refreshing and nicely mildly sour, no bloody lactic nonsense.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Really enjoyed this as one of the first sours I’ve tried. Aroma is like green apple with some "funk", maybe from the oak. Taste is complex, sour, similar to a homebrew cider in some ways with a wheat base. Light bodied with moderate carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pale straw gold with a white head that’s soon gone. Damp wheaty aroma with old lemons, lime, apricot stones. Husky and grainy sweetness, some nectarines, lime, mouldering lemons, mellow apples, hint of hard spice. Moderate sourness, damp laundry funk. No bitterness. The minerally feel that works well in some other Moa beers doesn’t work so well here and maybe there’s a little too much sweetness, but this is pretty good and not entirely unlike a gueuze.
