Tasting at Craft Clerkenwell. Hazy reddish brown beer, small peach - pink colour head. Palate is light, dry and crisp. Starts with a burst of sharp sourness, cherry and a little lemon acid. Nice balancing toasted coconut comes in and then a little balsamic. Finishes crisp. Pretty tart and fruity but the coconut really helps to smooth it out.

Bottle shared in London - thanks to Kenny. Pours murky red with a frothy, off-white head. Interesting aroma, some tart citrus, berries, wood, sweat. Medium sweet flavor with some apple sauce, tangy wood and berries, lemon rind, citric twang, decent acetic bite. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Lightly warming on the finish with some woody dryness, more acetic burn, leathery berries, toasted coconut, spicy wood. Novel.

brokensail (13234) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 23, 2011
A: The pour is a rather familiar hazy dark amber color with a small khaki head. S: Somewhat acetic with a big time berry and fruit aroma. The blackberries really stand out, but there is a nice cherry undertone to it as well. A mild malt character that makes the beer sort of reminiscent of an Oud Bruin. T: A nice hit of blackberry and cherry up front, as well as some other dark fruits. Mildly acetic, but overall nicely tart. Plenty of oak and perhaps even some red wine flavor. M: Medium in body with a medium carbonation, though maybe it could have used a bit more. O: A nice beer. Not amazing, but another example of the Bruery sours getting better.
