bluebetty (1019) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 19, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 20, 2012 Bottle. Pours a slightly murky brown with slight deep copper flecks down the side of the glass. Mininal tan coloured head disappears super quickly. Initial aromas of vinegar and acetone. Some light sour stone fruit and a little butterscotch (Diacetyl) as it warms. Flavours are sour and pretty one dimensional. Slick mouthfeel thanks to the Diacetyl and low carbonation levels. Not too bad but a little lacking.

330ml bottle. The more sour ales I try the more I like them and this one was no exception. Red coppery colour with tart bitter aroams jumping from the glass. The first sip had that mouth twisting flavour that lets you know you are alive and sends the tastebuds into overdrive. The flavour is tart and vinergary but is more subdued as the glass empties. Maybe that is just the tastebuds getting used to the flavour.

Bottle. Dark coppery red pour with very little head, just a smattering of white bubbles across the surface. Aroma is tart, fruity and lactic with notes of apples, cherries, currants, vinegar and oak. Flavour is very much the same as the aroma with lots of vinegary sourness up front and a lingering bitter herbal quality coming through. Mouthfeel is slick and oily with virtually no carbonation and a long bitter, slightly sour finish. Nice experiment from this brewery, definitely has potential but doesn’t quite pull it off, there being a few rough edges that could be smoothed out

hawthorne00 (2257) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 5, 2011
Bottle. Murky reddish brown with a small light beige head. Aroma of tart plums, apples, brett, brown sugar. Slightly slippery mouthfeel. Lowish carbonation. Taste has plums and apples, a hint of chocolate, quite a lot of tartness that’s mellow until a bretty zing right at the end. Some salt there too. Quite complex and very refreshing.
