Nocturne (912) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2015
375ml bottle. Slight hazy golden shade. Aroma is grassy, peppery, menthol, and with nice yuzu character shining. The acidity of the fruit tempers the sourness. Quite a chewy, slick mouthfeel that the fruit contributes to. Dry finish. I really enjoyed the fruit character here even if it was lacking the wildness I’d like.

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2014 Pours a hazy golden and is topped by a small white rim that leaves some lacing. Nose is really funny and reminds you both of lemon pie and floor cleaner. It was definitely a discussion item. Anyway, weird but good. Taste is of fresh lemons, limonata, oranges and a little funk toward the end. It is moderately tart and really refreshing. There was a slight bitter ending to it that must be from the fruits themselves. Body was medium, carbonation low but still present and texture oily. Overall a nice fruited lambic, I just wish the yuzu was a bit toned down but it made for a fun tasting.

UPDATED: DEC 5, 2014 Bottle from De Hopduvel. The yuzu taste was stronger as I thought it would be. It was nice but it’s not my most favourite taste.

Beermack (684) - Dublin, IRELAND - NOV 26, 2014
Pour at Ölrepublik Gothenburg. Light lemonade nose, some sourer stuff albeit light, some dust. Taste is pure radler - with a bit of mustiness and grit in there. Some light pot pourri to finish, perfumey. Very little sourness. Light. Very refreshing but lacking complexity. Liked it though.

Jesterdeal (1984) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - NOV 11, 2014
Bottle shared by Dan (big thanks). Aroma is lemon pledge, bitter rind, and slight plastic. Pours light blonde and super bubbly fizzy with a nice lingering haze. Taste is lemon zest, lemon household cleaner, dishwasher detergent, rubbermaid, and a light barnyard. It’s a shame the citrus translates as a detergent more than a fruit but ultimately wasn’t gross. Just not what any of us felt like drinking at the time. meh?
