2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
750ml bottle thanks to matboz. Pours flat clear pale golden yellow with no head, a few bubbles. Nose is strong acetic acid and vinegar, nail polish remover, funk, lemon, the nose is pretty off-putting. Taste is sour acidic lemon, vinegar, and maybe some citrus? Hard to taste anything over the acidity. Finish is acetic sour, slight burn, with some bits of earthy hay, one-dimensional. Finished maybe 2oz of this and that was enough.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 75cl, from trade with Papsoe. It’s a lightly unclear beer, golden in color and topped by a minimal sized white head. Quite funky, sourish aroma with nail polish remover, lemon, vinegar and fruityness in the aroma. Lemony, vinegarish flavor with lots of generic fruityness. Dry on the palate, soft carbonation and dry. Some vinous hints too, both initially and in the end. Ok, so it’s a good one, but it would certainly do better in a much smaller bottle. Or you could of course share with four or five friends. 131026

Bottle. Hazy yellow pour with a ring of white bubbles on the edges of the glass. Aroma is over the top vinegar with tart, lemon, and perhaps some like cheese rind funk. Taste intense, puckering sour with vinegar and white wine and grinding tart/sour into the finish. Light, almost watery mouthfeel. Over the top, imbalanced.
