Hazy amber beer, small cream colour head. Fruity nose, lightly sour. Palate is light, semi dry and minerally crisp. Light brett. Moderately sour generic fruits, cherry and orange identifiable. Crisp finish. Not sure if the end result was what the brewer intended, but it’s all right.

HogTownHarry (6201) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JAN 11, 2015
500ml bottle muled to me from Scotland by my friend AZ - thanks, A!! Dead-looking brown-amber with minimal head. Quite a lot of caramel with a little licorice and sour persimmon - oddly strong for 4%, at least on the nose. Taste - mostly sour and watery. Maybe a bit past its prime?
