4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Both Keg @ Hanging Bat and bottle @ home. Pours pink. Pepper spices with a red wine tannin. A saison/brett taste which with a fruit cider almost sweet but tart finish makes it an interesting and tasty drink. I liked the carbonation in the bottle more it lifted the flavours more than the almost flat Keg, but both are stunning drinks.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Sourced Market St Pancras and drunk at home. Pink gold lasting pink head. A bit of a wild fruity floral aroma. Then too much carbonation so I swirled the glass a lot to get rid of it. A weird fruity hoppy slightly sour beer. Some sweetness towards the finish then a harsh bitterness on the finish. Drinkable enough, not sure I’d want another. Weird fruity beer.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from sharrow Vale beer shop, sheffield. Clouded rose/orange ale, with thick creamy white head. Aroma is peppery and tart with passionfruit, not overly sweet though. Taste is pepper and sweet tart tropical fruit. Slightly Prickly carbonation and quite thick body. Perfectly balanced ale, tasty and refreshing.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Who would think of adding bursting fruit flavours to a sour beer? The Belgians? Who would mix in crazy ingredients like pink peppercorns and hibiscus? The Japanese? No, it’s the Wild Beer guys from Somerset, with overseas help, as if they needed it to be innovative. To be fair, for me, it overpromises. The sourness and passion fruit dominate - nothing wrong with that, but the other elements don’t come through strongly enough for me. It’s cloudy orange with a hint of pink, little head, and an unspectacular mouthfeel. Interesting rather than compelling.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Keg at BD Sheps Bush, 27/08/14.
Clear golden with a decent off white covering that soon collapses to spotting and edgework.
Nose is tangy melon, apple core, spice, light dose of funk, caramel, citric peel.
Taste comprises tarte citric vibes, pear drop explode, apple core, light woody must, spice, trace of pepper.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close.
Ok but not particularly complex or overly puckering - if at all puckering!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught keg at Mother Kelly’s. Fruit, spice & saison aroma, lots of fruit in the flavour with a slight sharp flourish at the end. Could be mistaken for a fruit & bitters cocktail.

On keg at Small Bar, Bristol July 2014. Pinkish in colour with a small, white, head and plenty of fizz. Tart berry fruits, a yeasty edge, oak, grassy hops, white pepper and a lingering, vinous, finish. Enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from deeside drinks emporium. Pours a slightly hazed orange with a lively white foam head which lasts. Very strange but nice aromas or sour passion fruit, wine, and orange. At first you get a bitter/sour apple cider like taste which relaxes into a nice tangy refresher bar zing. Hints of varnished wood and earth. Very strange unique beer. Could only have the one in a night though.
