3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy light straw color with a diminished white head. Citric and sourdough bread aromas. I catch a bit of grape skin as well in the nose. Soft feel, with just enough zip to keep it lively. Hints of sweetness that are quickly ushered away with a light citric acidity. Almost a bit too sweet and thick at times. I’m sure this would do well with either of the syrups if used sparingly. Linger has a nice return of pale malt along with a touch of vanilla.

14th April 2016
Bottleshare at Mr Smith’s pad. Hazy gold beer, a very short lived white head. Some egg on the nose. Palate is light, dry and has decent fine carbonation. Light tangy citrus, orange and lemon. A bitter and wonky funk underneath. Light semi dry finish. Pretty lame all round.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light hazy straw hue with a thin white rocky top. Big cheesy sulphuric fart on the nose, but you can kinda get a little banana and guava fruitiness underneath it. Better taste than the aroma but it’s just a bit bretty wheaty and a touch of acidic lemon rind. Dry and wheaty flavor with lots of funky Brett.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
From notes (10/7/15). Good and refreshing after a long and unexpectedly hot day. It’s dry, thin, sour, and effervescent, and it’s a really solid if somewhat one-dimensional Berliner Weisse.
