Bottle at the Castle Tap, Reading. It’s a hazy pale yellow with a light spritzy mouthfeel. Lots od grape and white wine up front then a light lemon flavour in the mildly dry and sour finish. It’s pretty simple, but it does work well and is very pleasant and refreshing. We used to have boys’ bitters; is this the equivalent in sour ale?

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a cloudy light yellow with almost no head. Yeasty and bready aroma. Classic Berliner weisse sour notes. Flavor is wheaty, yeasty, and tart lemon juice. The body is higher than a true Berliner weisse, and the finish lingers before fading away.

Interesting beer this one. Very cloudy pour and a very lemony wit colour. Sourness is evident on the nose and palate as expected. When looking at the parts it shouldn’t amount to much, but for some reason I liked it.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Bottledog. Gueuze smell but something quite sweet too. Nice sourness, tart and something a little smoky too. But not quite for me.
