SlackerMads (1657) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2014
Bottle, bottled on 13/6 2014. Hazy pale yellow with a medium sized white head. Wood, fruit, lime, white grapes, leather, hay, white pepper. Medium body, oily texture, medium carbonation, light/medium sweet with little bitterness and acidity. Long finish. Mellow, pleasant and very flavourful for the abv. Made me think of Anchorage White Out Wit.

Garrold (1473) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2014
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Clear, pale straw colour. Filmy, white head. Aroma is green apple. The barrel ageing is evident. I also get a curious undertone of chip shop mushy peas! Taste is dry and light sour. Clean, zingy palate. Finish is dry, and light sour. Liked this, even with the peas.

Hanoi (422) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2014
Bottle. Nose is wheat, green apple, oak leaves, lemon, yeast. Appearance is very pale yellow. Taste is light soured wheat, with green apple, green leaves, leading to a mellow sweeter, vanilla tone in the finish from the oak. Mouthfeel is surprisingly rounded. Kernel’s London sour is one of the most compelling beers I have tried in a while and mixed with the oak aged saison it lifts it into a complex but still refreshing beer.

Marheb (2141) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 21, 2014
De la paille trempé dans le beurre de brett, des notes acides et pas mal de rusticité dans un liquide qui s’engouffre sans forcer.

Svesse (6174) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 4, 2014
(Draught at the brewery, 12 Apr 2014. 4.4%) Clear golden yellow colour with frothy, white head. Fruity, sour nose with notes of lemon, grapefruit, hay and spicy yeast. Fruity, tart taste with citrus, grapefruit, green grapes, earthy hints of yeast and a dry finish with a fairly low bitterness. Medium body, quite dry. Interesting and quite tasty, with a fresh sourness. Nice one.
