andrei79 (32) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 26, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2016 Is this really spontaneous? Not a lot of funk, but finish is long and full of rotten fruit. Pours hazy light yellow, little-medium carbonation. Smell like fruit funk, but very light. Taste is little sour, hint of peach and appricot and tart but not quite. Balanced fruity taste, but too subdued to be spectacular, definitely enjoyable though.

ManVsBeer (8270) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2016
Bottle from Booths, Media City. Straw coloured with a small head and a carbonation. Clearly going to be sour in its aroma, strikingly so in taste. It’s certainly a slow sipper with a wine-like character.

Enno101 (73) - - JUN 21, 2016
Pours like fruit juice. Aroma: Light green apples, acidity, brett funk/sweat right at the back. Taste is quite different to the nose, cider, musty, funky with a sour finish. Light mouthfeel. Overall: Not crazy on this one. Flavour and aroma are too mismatched and even at that, the flavours you do get dont really sit well with each other.

gunnar (7666) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUN 10, 2016
Bottle from Ales By Mail. Pours hazy orange with a big head, fast diminishing. Aroma of acidic lemonade. Taste is light sour & acidic, tart berries, high carbonated, lingering lemon and puke in the aftertaste.

Towey1989 (1654) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2016
Keg at Redwillow Bar, Macclesfield. A hazy greyish, pinky, orangey colour with no head. Aroma of doughnuts, butter, some apple, slight yogurt, a little lemon and subtle melon. Taste of apple, lemon, some yogurt, slight melon, a little grass, a hint of brett, maybe lactic acid and subtle doughnut. Light bodied and a slight oily texture. A dry, slightly tart, citrus bitterness in the finish. An interesting, crazy and unpredictable beer. The wild bacterias sure make the beer flavourful but all together quite missmatched. Grew to like it but overall a different sour experience I’m normally used to.
