Nocturne (760) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2014
Keg at The Beagle, Chorlton. 3.2%. Cloudy pale golden shade with a tiny ring of head. Lemony up front. Taste moves into lactic yoghurt and fizzy sherbet notes. Dry as well as sour. Body is really robust for a beer of this strength, which seemed impressive. A lovely delicious thirst quencher.

zacgillbanks (2244) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2014
Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. A cloudy yellow-white coloured beer with a very tart lemon flavour, dry vanilla notes followed by a sour, spicy, zesty finish. Rather like sucking a lemon...in a good way! Bottle Conditioned.

ianwelby (461) - SCOTLAND - APR 20, 2014
Light sweet aroma from a very pale yellow beer. The taste has an initial wine-vinegar hit, there’s a touch of maltiness in the mouth and the lingering flavour is slightly sweet. It’s a strange one.

Leighton (10674) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2014
Bottle at home in London - picked up at the brewery. Pours perfectly clear, pale yellow, nicely effervescent with a thick, pure white froth head. The aroma holds a good bit of soured wheat, rotting white grapes, mild lemon. Light sweet flavor with a lovely, delicate citric tartness, subtle grassy bitterness, a bit of lip-puckering salty bite, funky lemon. Light bodied with average to lively, spritzy carbonation. Extremely clean on the finish with short sour bite, moderate funk, further citric tang. Just a touch of drying, musty cobwebs in the aftertaste. The body and carbonation are spot, as is the level of sourness. Truly delightful.
