Nocturne (1992) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2013
Keg at BrewDog Manchester. Hazy yellow/orange shade with very little head. Fruity, minerally aroma. Masses of sherbet on the tongue. Almost medicinal. I’m not familiar with tayberries so the fruit character tasted to me like white grape and hedgerow fruits. Lovely refreshing sourness. Delighted to see British brewers taking on this style; long may it continue. Rob_D_UK (1366) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 11, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 6, 2013 The pour’s hazy amber with a tiny white head. Tart fruity nose. Notes of cantaloupe, lemon zest, unwashed herb and rhubarb. The taste is refreshingly sharp. Nice acetic bite. More cantaloupe. Soft salty brine. Abrupt finish. Bit too sharp for the rest of my friends though. joergen (29180) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 11, 2013

ekstedt (6976) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 8, 2013
Sampled at CBC 2013. Hazy orange, low white head. Grainy and doughy malt aroma, fruity and sourish. Light bodied, medium carbonation. Dry, medium to high acidity. Lilja (3489) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 7, 2013
Fat på CBC 2013. Frisk och syrlig smak av blåa och röda bär som hallon och björnbär fast omogna sådana, beligisk jäst, lätt sötma som dock är en aning artificiell. Scopey (15652) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2013
Keg at various BrewDog bars. It pours hazy orange-amber with a medium white head. The nose is sour, lactic, light vinegar, cat litter, barnyard, earth, wheat, berry and rhubarb & custard. The taste is mouth-puckering tartness, rather fruity, sour berry, lemon, Granny Smith apple, passion fruit, rhubarb, light acidity, faint jamminess, lactic and sherbet with a long dry-tart finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Massively drinkable and good body for the style. Flavoursome and very well-balanced. Delicious! flying_pig (1646) - SCOTLAND - MAY 6, 2013
Half Pint at Brewdog Glasgow (Keg, £3.85):hopbomber (88) - Manchester, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2013
Very sour as expected with some bitter lemon and a touch of sweetness from the tayberries. There is a lot of tart coming through with some background fruit and plenty of sourness.
Cloudy amber with a thick looking, foamy white lacing on top about two millimetres thick that manages to leave some lacing.
Really sour with some berries and lemon along with a touch of sweetness making up the most of the taste. There is some citrus and orange zest with what I assume is the tayberries and there is a hint of wheat in the mix as well.
Smooth and very sour with some hints of sweetness throughout but not a great amount. Quite a tarty beer and bitter too but the beer goes down surprisingly easy.
More sour than I had been expecting yet it was also a lot easier to drink than I had been fearing and went down a treat. Very sour and tarty but very nice.
interesting brew, sour vinegary barnyard cheesy funky flavors with an upfront bready yeasty tones medium carbonation. Good.
