OF course it lacks body, but it makes up for it with a lovely aroma and a fair punch of pucker up sourness. Enjoyed that.

Slightly hazy yellow straw colour body with a very thin head. Aroma is sourdough bread, yeast, some lemon. Taste is mild sour, tart, sweet too. It really tastes like sourdough bread. Light to medium body, dry finish. Refreshing and easy to drink beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle: Poured a lightly hazy bright yellow color ale with a small bubbly head with OK retention and some light lacing. Aroma of tart notes with light funky ester is quite pleasing. Taste is a nice simple mix of tart notes, light oak with some funky Brett notes. Acidity is very low as well as residual sugar notes. Body is light with great carbonation. Superb mix of great drinkability and loads of complexity. I also love the fact that they didnít feel the need to go double-digit on the ABV.

(Wild Beer Sourdough) Bottle 330 ml at home, served into a big tulip, ABV 3.6%
Bright, sunny yellow colour on the body, clear, with a small and thin white head on top. Low head retention, minimal lacing on the glass after it has collapsed.
Subtle but nice aroma. Maybe itís subliminal but I smell fresh baked bread in here, wheat, light yeast.
Quite sour taste, with floral notes, wheat, grapes, bread, sesame, long aftertaste.
Medium thin body, good carbonation. Light dryness on the palate.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at the Castle Tap, Reading. Itís 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. Itís pretty simple, but it does work well and is very pleasant and refreshing. We used to have boysí bitters; is this the equivalent in sour ale?
