4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from Denman Wine and Spirits, Vancouver
Hazy golden color. The aroma is wonderful, it marries the character of the brett with a strong fruity, zesty component; it’s citrusy, and a bit trropical, pungent. The mouthfeel is very dry, but quite smooth thanks to the high carbonation; the flavor is zesty, citrusy, funky, and rather astringent in the final; plenty of grapefruit, qumquats, and hints of passion fruit.
Wonderful fruity sour.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12.7 Oz bottle. Porus a hazy amber with huge head. Aromas of breadfruit, mashed pineapple, limes, and toasted malts. A fruit bomb with flavors of sour tropical fruit, green berries, pommegranate and mangos, limes, and a little sweet malts,. If hops are present it’s the Ammarillo. Incredible. Though not an IPA by any means...

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
37,5 cl bottle @ home
Aroma has strong bretta tartness and fruit candy in the background. Flavour has tart citron, grapefruit, bretta tones and hints of cereal-style malt. Also mild gastric acid tones. A bit too tart to be completely enjoyable. Indeed no signs of 100 IBU, sourness overrides it I guess.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Gusher! Turbid dull orange with a lively head. Aroma of grapefruit and sour yoghurt with funky undertones. Juicy and acidic, sour and hoppy as promised! Woody undertones, imparting kind of a dirty quality that I thought took away from the zesty focus. Finish is sour and dry. Really good.
