danlo (1846) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2015
330ml bottle from Hemelvaart Bier Cafe, Bedale. Hazy yellow colour, fizzy white foam head and aroma of lemony citrus rind, grain, yeasty funk. Taste is vinegar sour, citric fruity, lemon zest, grains, barnyard with yeast, hay & biscuit notes. Fairly smooth mouthfeel, light to medium bodied, fine carbonation, dry tangy sour finish. Nicely drinkable.

Towey1989 (962) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2015
Bottle. A clear straw colour with a thin white head. Aroma of apricot, pear, lemon zest, some yeast funk, straw and slight wood. Taste of apricot, grapefruit, pear, sharp lemon zest, yeast, straw and slight barnyard. Light bodied and a mouth filling oily texture. A dry, clean, sharp lemon finish. A funky, lightly sour wild ale. Crisp, clean and close to a good Belgian lambic.

EdKing (2232) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2015
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.

Bottle at home split with Sarah. Picked up from Bottledog KingsX. Clear bright yellow / straw coloured pour with a light haze and a thin halo of pure white head. Aroma is tangy sour, onion, splash of vinegar, grapes. Little sweet and sour thing on the nose as well. Vanilla. Flavour is grainy, sour grapes, apricot, little creamy, dry pucker, spicy finsh. Palate is medium bodies, dry sour finish. Little grape skin tanin. Lingering sour and cream cake. decent.

apickles (303) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2015
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!

Theydon_Bois (14316) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 12, 2015
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.

gegwilson (2389) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2015
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.

Pours a cloudy and bright yellow with no head. Aroma is sour fruit and the taste is a sharpness with a hint of lemon.

harrisoni (15794) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2015
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

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