kindly shared by impuritylaw, thanks a lot for this amazing beer fermented with sourdough! Blind tasting. Aromas of lacto and floral hints (jasmine) as well as some floral-herbal ones (melissa, verveine) and citrus. Taste amazes with a lot more sourness than expected from the nose. Retronasally blossoms and honey, nice, almost sorbet-like mouthfeel, lots of citrus and, despite the sourness, still very complex and with just enough residual sugars to let the herbal, woody and floral aromas be present.

Vom Fass im Taproom Jungbusch. Trüb hellgelbes Bier, luftiger Schaum, was wohl am Zapfen lag. Säurer Kräuterduft. Fast schon Essigsauer! Johannisbeeren. Antrunk ist richtig sauer. Dazu interessante Brotnoten. Im Abgang auch Sauerteigbrot. Lang anhaltend. Spannendes Bier.

330ml bottle. Pours pale straw with little head but really fizzy, like champagne. Aroma is all funk, apple and a vinegar. Flavour is all lemon, white wine, apple at first. Then comes a strong wheat note (almost like underdone toast) and then abruptly done. What’s left is tart and refreshing. It’s very fizzy, which works with the style. Really very nice.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
At GBF, a "session sour" so to speak from this English sour ale specialist, fermented with a bread yeast and Brett, and oaked. Moussy, snow white, more or less stable head, hazy straw blonde colour with greenish hue. Aroma of unripe redcurrant, buttermilk, artichoke, sourdough, fermenting hay, wry grape peel, pear, goat cheese, dry lime zest. Lemony sour, a bit puckering even, unripe plum and raw pineapple acidity too, sour cream-like lactic tartness, spritzy carbo, supple and somewhat grainy middle, some bready yeastiness in the end while the drying sourness continues, very refreshing. Interesting deviation from the Berliner Weisse principle - which nowadays seems all too often being used as an ’easy’ and simple alternative to more complex and lambic-inspired sours. Very refreshing.

330ml . In a goblet. A lactic acidic nose darts from the glass... Lemon , sugars , sour candy sweets .... It pinches my nose and makes me recall a less funky Gueuze, like hanssens. The white head died soon and leaves glowing orange . Flavours are refreshing, dry and tart , drinks like a Berliner. Lemon, sour puckering acidity, wheat , little green apple . I like this , a bit more boost would score it higher for me ... And a better head retention.

Small white rim, cloudy beer. Very spicy, bread- and wild yeast, lemon/lime. Quite tart, lemony, lactic acid. Not only very light, but a tad watery. Not so special, the acidity makes up for 95% of the taste & mouthfeel.

From tap. A great highly sour wild ale. Hazy and golden appearance and a long lasting white foam. Average lively carbonation, medium-full body.
