Bottle. Smells lovely, fruit, dark berries. Nice spritziness, nice sourness, but fruit dominates. Bit musty. Good stuff.

Deep cloudy purple color. Nice light sour mouth, very tart with lots of damson skins. Really really sour. With big sour and damson finish. Very interesting and I love it.

September 20, 2014 - at The Kernel, Zwanze Day 2014; on cask. Hazy deep raspberry red with a frothy pinkish white head. Aroma is ... fucking sour - awesome, awesome, awesome - damson, sourness, no alcohol - just a big ol’ attention-getter for the nose. The taste isn’t anywhere near as sour, but that’s okay - it’s pleasant, fruity, there is some gluten stickiness and lacto character ... the London Sour base beer shines through, which is good, I love that beer. Light body and carbonation, oddly it’s only moderately acidic (it’s smells hugely acidic, go figure), finishes quick with a bit of marmalade in the aftertaste; lovely stuff.

WoW. A really nice and pleasant sour ale. Even my friends had to say ok. Sour can be nice. They are developing! Good looking Deep Purple stuff. Pleasant sourness and acidity. Fine body for a 2,3% beer, and a nice carbonation. Plums, lactic and mild citric. Nice one!

Aromat jest intensywnie owocowy, choć raczej czuć suszone śliwki niż świeże. W tle nuty gumy balonowej przypominające trochę te z piw pszenicznych. W smaku to piwo wydaje się być najbardziej kwaśne z dotychczasowo degustowanych. Ponownie dominują śliwki, wyraźne kwaśne (niemal octowe) i wytrawne. Piwo pozostawia lekko winny posmak.

Bought a bottle at the kernel. Poured a hazy purple. Head is not present. Aroma is weak but when you get your nose in it you smell the the damson. Taste is sour and refreshingly light with sweet fruit flavor and damson. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draught@CBC2015. Hazy reddish orange with a small pink head. Aroma is cherries, some citrus along with mild lactic and some slightly acidic notes. Flavour is citrus, some fruits, mild toffee and some lactic notes. Pleasant. Refreshing "light" beer.
