alassio (72) - USA - APR 10, 2013
Pleasantly zesty with a light fruity density on the palate; a touch of apricot and then some light tree-bark hops. Sour, sweet, and bitter all vie for attention, with none of them succeeding and the flavors cancel each other out to make for an overall simple beer that is not all that pleasurable, really. If anything, the mouthfeel is the best thing about it. Don’t need to have it again terribly soon.

SarkyNorthener (1955) - Walsall (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2014
Bottle from midland tasting group. I never got round to drinking this on the day due to being pissed. This was a spare bottle thanks to minutemat, who also warned us about its liveliness. Well it was certainly a gusher, I opened it a little and the foam started seeping. It took 10 minutes to open safely. Dark hazy amber beer with floaters And a big head. Aroma is barnyard funk, citrus and yeast. Taste is orange pith, caramel, yeast, citrus and sour fruits. Medium bodied. Good stuff.

Bottle - Sweet apricot and sweet light malts. Cloudy gold with a nice off white head. Stone fruit, light sweet malts and a very light bitterness in the finish. Very fruity and sweet.

aleigator (225) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 13, 2014
Hazy, golden yellow color, with a big white head. Bread, tart hints, orange, yeast and clove. Sour, with soft yeast and white-bread malts, unexpected sour, compared to the other flavors of the beer. Citraic notes with unripe orange, also an noteable fzziness, due to the dominating sourness. Lively carbonation creates a fruity, slightly spiced refreshing beer, with an unusual, well fitting sourness. Decent body, soft, pleasant mouthfeel. Has a refreshing, fruity aftertaste, with a subtle bitterness.
