3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from a corner shop.
Appearance - hazy yellow with a quickly disappearing head.
Nose - bread and tart apple notes.
Taste - tart apple sauce.
Palate - close to medium bodied with a rich tangy texture and a long dry tangy finish.
Overall - like it but prefer more fruity notes in my sour beers. Interesting but not as good as it is interesting.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared with Van Moll crew @ Van Moll Brewpub. Clear pale golden color, virtually no head. Aroma is sort of cider like, apple and cucumber. Taste is sourish, cucumber, applepeel, grapepeel, salt, tart, a sharp sourness in the finish. Weird and barely drinkable, but an interesting experiment. Won’t buy it again though.

2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
330 ml. bottle sampled. BBF 25/05/2019. Purchased @ Caigny. Clear apple golden, little white head. Nose is quite off-putting in a unique and highly intense way, nasty rotting lactic with a oddly very big spoiled cucumber note, pickle juice, vegetable,… Taste is luckily milder but still, vinegar, lactic cucumber, spoiled cucumber, pickle juice, huge bottle lemon juice, acidic,… Thin, watery & fizzy. I appreciate the idea & intention but this is just a bit too unpleasant & undrinkable for me. This beer is proof that complexity doesn’t equal pleasantry and that too many people get hanged up on the idea that beers need to be complex in order to excel. There is such a thing as too experimental or at least there is for me. For me it seems like for every Wild Beer that I like there is one that hate.

Bottle from Whole Foods PM. Pours hazy lime margarita colored with ni head. Nose is tart lactose, pedio, fruit. Tastes tart, fruity, with heavy lactic acid, funk, like a wild ale hybridized with a saison.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
The Somerset Sour Ale’s crisp, acidic flavor was exactly as I had hoped and well worth the downtown Albuquerque $7 price. If you prefer your chicken sautéed in a lemon caper sauce and you gravitate towards tart Granny Smith apples, then this British import is for you. The hazy, pale, yellow ale with its refreshing light carbonation had enough zing to make me want to go back for more. citrus, astringent,

Great sour beer. Although it's a bit on the tart side. It's what I'd expect a sour to taste like.
