4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
75cl bottle from Mother Kelly’s in London. It pours a deep dark ruby color with purple edges and the tiniest off-white head. The little foam dissipates immediately. Aroma is intensely sour and vinegarish with notes of wiod, basement, cherries and more wild berries. Taste is acidic with some sweeter fruit notes. More flavours of sour cherries, wild berries, wood and dusty basement. Some funk and lemon zest. Body is medium with lively carbonation. Overall, very good brew and quite a proper example of the style.

Pizzeria Paradiso keeps hitting them out of the park. Excellent sour, tart and sweet. Pours out dark brown/ruby, minimal head. Over the top sourness on the nose, a bit more subdued in the taste, but still a sipper.

Poured from bottle into snifter. Pours a mahogany color with a slightly off-white head about two fingers high. The head dissipates down to a few millimeters thick. Nice typical sour brown aroma - notes of cherry, sour fruit, some grape, touch of leather. Taste - very tart (obviously), lots of brett character with earthiness, touch of vanilla. Mouthfeel is a full body, thick on the tongue, and lively carbonation level. Finish is medium length and pleasant.
