HogTownHarry (6101) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 13, 2014
September 6, 2014 - at The Kernel (Bermondsey) - on draught. Oh, what a way to start a drinky drinky day (930 am)! Lovely colour - clear, refractive pale berry red with pinkish head. Smells like lemon, light tannin, and plenty of mixed ripe raspberry and crushed raspberry seeds - the base beer shines right through ... taste follows, but oh my it’s good - lemon, fruit and a hint of salt - no alcohol whatsover, so this is juice, right? Healthy? Shut up. Light body, carbonation and acidity, quick-finishing, just right. Lovely, lovely fruity beer with just the right amount of acidic funk - love it.

jercraigs (7812) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 12, 2014
2014-09-06. Dark red pink body, with a small pink white head. 3++ Pleasantly sour throughout, refreshingly so, with modest fruit character that comes out in the finish with notes of raspberry and sweeter generic fruit touches. 7++ Aroma is mild but pleasant, dilute raspberry, light vegetation touches. Tasty. Bottle via trade with Ferris.

hobsch (485) - Cologne, GERMANY - SEP 9, 2014
From tap at brewery. Pours pink with white head. Aroma is full of raspberries, tart, funky. Taste is light sweet, light bitter, heavy sour, raspberries, fruity. Excellent sour, very refreshing, very drinkable, amazing fruit flavour balanced with sourness. This was the first beer at 11:00 am at Kernel brewery. Perfect choice.

Garrold (1318) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2014
Keg. Leeds IBF. 2.5% (I think). Clear, dark pink. Big, pink tinged, white head. Light, dry, yeasty tartness. Hint of red fruit. Taste is light tart. Bone dry. Light, airy palate. Lots of tang. Finishes fruity dry. Ridiculously fresh and tasty. Beautiful.

PonderStibbons (10) - - SEP 3, 2014
Pure and transparent look of this pleasantly red Sour does not compensate for its overly acidic, too heavy on a sour note taste. It’s unfortunately unimpressive due to lack of balance and structure. Berries do come through in the smell, but faintly. It wouldn’t make for a session beer, neither for aperitif. However, I can still imagine it as a chaser in between meals, to clean the palette, as sorbet would.

Koelschtrinker (10636) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - AUG 28, 2014
Säuerlicher aber etwas dumpfer Antrunk. Natürliche Fruchtnoten, leicht bitter, im Verlauf tritt die Fruchtigkeit stärker in den Vordergrund da die anderen Aromen schwächer werden. Gut! 14/11/11/10/9/11
