3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Keg in Old Coffee House. Murky yellowy red, medium white foamy head. Nose is minerally sour, cherry, acidic. Taste is lemon sour citrous with a bit of syrupy cherry, sour raspberry. Lemon citrous dominates. On the finish it’s sour, bit of citric acid prickle and lemon sucking sour. Think it needs a bit more cherry fruit to work.
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2016 Traditional ale like. Some yeast, lots of wood. Very dry, maybe a bit too subtle sour. Will developed, not really to cherry like, but it sure adds character. Great woody brew.

On keg, King William IV, Leyton, London, 9/1/2016. Pre-family meal. deanso (10126) - Chiang Mai, THAILAND - SEP 12, 2015
Excellent sour notes. Very much like a Frank Boon gueuze. Bone dry. Loads of cherry-cola on the tongue. Nice carbonation. Like a bottled beer. Not ott not too soft. Great drinkability. The lactose was there but it was not at all heavy or prominent which is exactly how lactose should be. I did get a huge abundance of cherry-cola and I thoroughly enjoyed this. Excellent.
Bottle shared at September THT.

Keg at Old Coffee House. Buttery, little sherbet, only mild, slightly watery cherry vibes. Not really much sourness or tartness here. That said, once the wet yeast vibes die down it’s pretty drinkable. Overall a rare fail for a Brodies sour sadly.
