4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Holy Christ this is sour! 25oz bottle. This one has been taunting me in my cellar to drink it, pours out a nice lighter golden yellow hue. Aromas are a smack in the face, in fact my wife could smell it from across the room, powerful lemon zest aromas, screaming acidity, a little funk. Palate is weak only because of how sour and acidic this one is. Fruit is up front then a ripping acid hits the mid and makes you feel like a hole is getting drilled in your stomach. It finishes long with a reverberating cascade of lemon warheads on the way down. I’m splitting my bottle between tonight and tomorrow, share this one for sure.

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

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
