4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
330ml from Beer Gonzo, Coventry. Pours hazed orange with a patchy white head receding to a skim. Unexpectedly lambic nose with a giant slug of Drie Foneinen creaminess and acid; funk, horse, crab apple sharpness, acidic fruit- possibly kumquat, and more than a whiff of Sperrin Brewery Stadium urinal trough Yeast similarly dominant on the palate which is crisp, funk-drenched and Payottenland-accented with a huge juicy scoop of lychee, blackcurrant and gooseberry hop fruit beneath. Trickle of soap. Out of the box. Not had anything as unusual and brilliant as this for a long time. Extraordinary beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours cloudy orange with low white head. Aroma of wine barrel, elderflower, makes my head spin, this smells like a gueuze! Taste is tart sour with light hops and caramel. Like someone poured 10cl of DIPA into a big glass of gueuze... Body is light and crisp with soft carbonation.

330ml bottle from Good Spirits Co. Light orange amber, not much head. Sharp sour lemon hop aroma. Very bitter spicy lemon hop flavour. Bitter sour aftertaste. More like a saison than a pale ale.

330ml bottle from Cornelius. Hazy golden yellow, thin white head. Aromas of lemon and sherbet, lots of brett. Taste has lemon sour funkiness, and the white wine comes through. Not much of the base beer left, actually! Nice beer though.
