3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at The Hanging Bat, Edinburgh. Deep red with nice frothy pink head. Aromas of red fruits; raspberries, cherries. Nice and sour, light-medium sweet, quite tart. Medium body, crisp mouthfeel. I have a feeling this would have benefitted from being served chilled, like most sours, not room temp.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 8, 2014 Bottle at RBESG. Bright blood red, medium foamy off white head. Smell is fantastic. Raspberries, sherberty sweetness and berry fruit, subtle pepper, nice sourness. Taste is lots of raspberry, sour and sherberty fruit. It’s like lots of fresh raspberry juice with delicate wild yeast and fruit sour dominated. Another really great beer from Wild Beer Co and great chilled on a summers day.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Sampled on keg at Birmingham Beer Bash pop-up bar. This is immense. Not sure I’ve tried too many beers which can top this one. The fruit flavours are jammy, rich and delicious. The sour backbone is pronounced, developed and perfectly balanced. I drank lots of this. It is unbelievable.
