Scopey (14012) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2011
75cl bottle (dated 17/12/07) from White Horse, Parsons Green. It pours a golden yellow colour with moderate carbonation and a large foamy white head. The nose is farmyard, grape, lemon, lime, grapefruit and even some sour tomato. The taste is dominantly tart: lots of lime, lemon rind, grape, redcurrants, grapefruit and granny smith apples, which mellows out to slightly sweeter notes of red apples and pears. Its complex, very well balanced and smooth. Absolutely brilliant stuff and one of the best beers Ive tasted.

bierkoning (13055) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUN 23, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2010 Bottled, 375 ml, 07.03.2002. Oak, honey, lemon and a hint of pepper in the perfect aroma. Sour flavor, but an eased down sourness, not too harsh. Oak, lemon, grapefruit, raspberry. Still some sharp edges, that need to be eased down by further cellaring. Great balance, great potential. Very long oaky and citric aftertaste. Close to perfection, I wish Id bought more bottles. Bottle 375 ml, vintage 2-2005. Special label. Honey, lemon and sewer in the aroma. Sour flavor with sewer, lemon, grapefruit, oak, honey and rubber. Very complex and especially aromatic, but the aftertaste is too rubbery. (8 4 8 3 16 = 3.9)
