On tap at the taproom. Lightly hazy, golden to orange in color and with a small, off-white head. Lots of citrus on the nose. Must be the kumquats I guess. Some lemon peel. It’s lightly tart on the palate, dry, with a nice carbonation. The flavor has lots of the citrus thing, some malt notes, and a good lemony note. Long finish. Definitely a fruit worth trying out. 130811

Leighton (13827) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2013
Bottle shared at Bruce’s in London - many thanks to Kenneth. Pours hazy amber with a frothy, off-white head. The aroma is lightly funky, some tangy lemon, some berries. Light to medium sweet flavor, lots of fruity tones, peach, kumquat, lemon, balanced tang. Light to medium bodied with fine to average, massaging carbonation. Nice tang on the finish, further citric fruit notes, lemon, kumquat, some mandarin orange, grapefruit and peach. Very drinkable. Solid stuff.

brokensail (12886) - Orange County, California, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Hazy orange color with minimal head due to the cask pour. Starts out with a nice vanilla aroma. Tons of kumquat and a very citrusy aroma overall. A decent amount of wood with just a mild rye and vinegar note. A touch of grass along with the wood really the only funk. Restrained acetic qualities and a nice tartness overall. Plenty of kumquat flavor makes this really enjoyable.

Bottle split at Bruce’s pad, big thanks to Kenny for bringing the Bruery goodies once again, 19/09/13. Hazed golden amber with a thin off white head. Nose is tarte apricot, soured tropical fruits, tarte peach, sugars, light smoke, dank straw. Taste comprises tarte peach medley, earthy, grass, soured apricot stones. lightly acididc, touch of must. Medium bodied, fine carbonation with a tickle of prickle, dry tarte finale. Great sour affair.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a hazy amber color with a frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy sour yeast and tart fruit aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sour & sweet fruit flavor with a medium to heavy sweet & sour finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout beer.

hopscotch (10076) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Bottle... Pours cloudy and caramel-colored with a small, fat-bubbled, white head. Decent retention. The aroma displays spicy grains accompanied by other spicy, herbal and rooty notes. Full-bodied with a dry mouthfeel and airy carbonation. The flavor is both sour and spicy flanked by a weird, herbal component. Finishes tart, sandpapery and dry. Bottle courtesy of biggsbowler!

Bottle @ Matt’s house from our Reserve Society membership. Pours a cloudy orange appearance with a thin tan head. Pineapple, fruit cocktail, passion fruit, vanilla, mild cherry aroma. Tangy, big lemon, lime, passion fruit, guava, funky fruity flavor that finishes pretty tart. Pretty tasty beer.
