ComradeK (1086) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 8, 2014
330ml bottle. Pours a n opaque black, with a minimal light beige head, which fades quickly and leaves no lacing. Prune and malt sweetness mix with a good level of sourness to create the aroma. Lemon juice tartness up front softens into a more rounded sourness as the plum flavour comes in. The finish has a nice sweet and sour feel to it. A decent sour ale.

Sevenlee (1711) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - JUL 24, 2014
Pours a reddish brown colour with an off-white head. Aroma is malt, plums, cherries and other dark fruit, yeast with some nuts and woody notes. Taste is pretty tart and yeasty. I really love Moon Dog’s adventurous spirit but I feel this one missed the mark a little.

Niksko (568) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 13, 2014
Pours inky black with a little crop of beige head. Quite effervescent with bubbles constantly surfacing. Nose is quite tart with slight coffee and a bit of a dank horseblanket type note. Flavor matches the nose in terms of sourness. Very lemony acid character. I get a little bit of the plummy tannins, some vanilla, and a definite dose of roasted coffee on the finish with lingers along with a bit of acidity. Body is quite light, slightly fizzy. Pretty tasty, and certainly different.

From a bottle. Initially I was not into it but it grew on me. Big sour fruit aroma which took some getting used to, the cherries take away from the bitterness, this is not my favourite style of beer.

On tap at the new bar in the Moondog Brewery. The 2014 version is seriously good. They kegged it last week, it had been in oak barrels for about six months. It’s 6.1% rather than 6.9% this time. Still with the same light body but a super complex palate reminiscent of classic Flanders Reds. Also loads of Brett (awesome). I highly recommend trying this new version on tap if you were one of the people who was displeased with this beer last time.

330ml Bottle- So tart it hurts, but oh so good. A well made sour ale, lambic style beer.
