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 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is closer to a cider than a beer, its almost as if someone took a farmhouse ale and dropped a whole lemon into the glass. Look, I want to love it, farmhouse sours are a new thing to me and I've been all about them. But this is just unbalanced, and in all honesty, a bit lacklustre. Maybe another vintage?

2013 vintage. Two sours in one night and in comparison this is less sour but more funky on the palate. Quite dry on the finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, 11/9/2014. Pours cloudy straw yellow, golden highlights, small fizzy head, some carbonation still visible. Aroma is soft sour lemon, touch of apricot, with dusty wheat undertones, yeast and tropical brett funkiness. Taste is bright, sour lemon and citrus fruit, wheat cracker and yeast, moderate bitter finish, clean. Light crisp body, not overly sour, nice balanced. Almost lambic-like characteristics, like Zwanze 2010. Really nice, would like to try again.

As a sour beer this is one of the most accessible ones that Iíve had, and whilst the palate is of course dominated by the sour itís not all there is, with a sense of creaminess that carries it and compliments it. I thought it looked fantastic and better when I muddied up the yeast sediment into it.
