Amber colour with a very slight cream head, very slight fizz in the glass. Lovely sour nose like a lambic. Delicious sour taste with a wheaty after-taste - superb!

Bottle from the Hop Hideout. Pours hazy golden with a light layer of white froth that quickly fades to nothing. The aroma is sour and slightly musty. The taste is really sour and zingy with sharp lemon flavour. Some slightly earth must in the finish. Refreshing and tasty.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Keg at the MTB/Takeover, CBC St Giles, 28/02/15.
Hazed orange with a moderate off white covering that dissipates quickly to nyadda.
Nose is tarte peach, citric rinds, apricot pangs, straw, light funk.
Taste comprises damp straw, more apricot plunder, mango, passionfruit, a very tropicana forward sour, light acidic strokes.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, zingy citrics in a very lightly puckered close.
Solid refreshing sour, pretty simple but solid throat tickling stuff.
Much better than the bottled version Iíd had a month previously and not got round to rateing.

Notes of ripe apricots, gooseberries, white grapes, white wine barrel, Brett and lemon. Taste is again quite sharp acidic and nicely fruity with more notes of ripe apricots, white wine, hint of salt, funk and lemon. Light bodied with lively carbonation. Overall, delicious

Nice sour beer, just the think to cleanse your palate after some spicy food, lacking much of an aroma.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at home from We Brought Beer in Balham. A dull night in has just found an added dimension. One of Wild Beer Co.ís best ever sours and itís got some great Belgian lambic character. If you told me this was a new Cantillon beer Iíd believe you. Colour is a pale golden amber, no lasting head. Nose is genuinely lambic funky, farmyard, light fruity, peach, sour, tart, acidic, brown apple flesh, pineapple, white vinegar. This is really good. Think it might top barrel aged sour grapes as the best ever British lambic. Taste is tart, sour, light body, light white vinegar, white apple flesh thatís turning brown, white wine and white wine vinegar, acidic bite. Itís not a big full lambic flavour but light and fruity and acidic. Make this a regular chaps, if itís always as good as this.

On tap at Craft Covent Garden. Cloudy orange gold no head. Good fruit on this. Some white wine melon apricot even. Not exactly authentic funk but not overtly lactose either. Decent
