September 2017 - Theydon Bois' 20K Tasting at One Canada Square. Bottle thanks to Kenny. As 'Avery Lunctis Viribus', 5.4%. Hazy browny-orange, foamy light brown head leaves light lacing. Aroma is airy, plenty of fruit cake and cranberry. Body is light and frothy with tingly carbonation. Taste is orange cake, tangy citrus zest, sugary orange, little syrup. Decent.

Sampled at the 2017 Beer Fest. It poured a reddish color with a white head. The aroma was of tequila, wood and wine. The taste was similar to the aroma with more tequila, wine, wood and funk. It was medium bodied with a sour aftertaste. Really good. madmitch76 (25809) - , Essex, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2017

Bottle shared in London on cloin's 20k - cheers to mitchy. Pours unclear deep orange-amber with a small, creamy white head. Strong sweat and tart berries in the nose, some leather. Light-medium sweet flavour with assertive acidity, more tart berries, old cherries, a little oaky dryness. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Drying finish, with a little warmth, more acetic bite, ripe and tangy and leathery berries. Not bad.

Sour malty mash with some aguava, tannin, burnt molasses, acidic, mild carbonation and full bodied, dried sour plum rinds with more barrel coming through. Capa (3499) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - JUL 30, 2017
Slightly muddy reddish brown. Wine notes from the start with sour berries beyond. Some sweetness from the malt, tart fruit, vanilla, faint oak. I missed any tequila notes, which was fine by me. Sour, dry finish. A very enjoyable brew.
