For the love of Gord, open this bottle over the sink. My bottle vigorously expectorated half its contents all over my table. Otherwise delicious. Has something of a lemon juice tartness in a way, but also some oakiness? The perfect amount of body, this is probably the best low-alcohol beer Iíve ever had. (Kernel Brewery Iím looking somewhat disappointedly in your direction). It may go without saying but it was also wildly overcarbonated.

tricksta_p (901) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUL 19, 2014
Aroma of sour apple juice, lemony citrus, some more tart fruits. Flavour is light vinegar, sour apples. Very dry. I enjoyed this one, but I would have liked it better with a little more funk in the aroma.

laiti (5512) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 11, 2014
Sample from growler @ Beer Temple. Aroma is odd with peaches and yeasty tones - actually a Sahti feeling here. Flavour is rather tart with milky tones and some fruitiness.Tart, weird and messy - reminds me of Hair of the Dog Ruth.

Benzai (7287) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 28, 2014
Tap @ Beer Temple. Pretty hazy light orange color, virtually no head. Smell and taste are sourish but in a nice way. Clearly fruit and fruitpeel present, citrussy, apple peel. Dry finish, decent body and carbonation.

Retronasal itís a bit more subtle: tart, a light malty sweetness, some wood. Flavor is tart, soft, with a light sweetness. Light bodied. Dry finish.

KnutAlbert (6013) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 27, 2014
On tap at the brewery. Very inviting aroma, sweet lemon. White wine barrels giving a perfumed sourness.

minutemat (1341) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2014
75cl bottle @ the Sixth Shrewsbury Bottle Share, June 14, courtesy of me, bought from Vanuxeem. Insanely lively, exploded all over the table and floor in the pub! Pours cloudy yellow with a nice mild sour taste. Lemon curd, honey and pear drops with artificial boiled sweet notes. Refreshing.

Sample at the sour event at World of Beer Brewery District on 5/25/14. Pours clear gold with no head. Aroma of dry roasted peanuts, tart acidity and malt. Malty flavor with dry roasted peanut accents before a sour and dry finish.

ST247 (360) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - MAY 19, 2014
On tap @Schooltje. I remember when I first tried this (I wasnít into beers as I am now), I didnít like it and didnít finish the sample. So I really wanted to try it again now.
Clear golden, white head. Sour and fruity aroma and taste. Must admit that it really has taste despite the low alcohol percentage.
Iím still not a huge fan, because Iím not really into sour beers (yet), but I finished this sample. If there ever comes a time Iím into sour beers, Iíll definitely try it once again.

bartlebier (1524) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - MAY 6, 2014
First tasted at ?BAP 2013, then ZBF 2013, rating from tap@ZBF 2014. Not much of a looker, but it packs a great condensed lemony punch, more natural and juicy than lemonade. If this be the dry and fruity prequel to non-Senne lambic, holding all vinegar, donít funk & ferment it out! Genial simplicity.
