domienS (250) - Oostakker, BELGIUM - SEP 25, 2014
Clear orange/amber beer with no saturation and white foam. Smells yeasty and fresh fruits. Tastes sour and very refreshing. Leaves a long fresh sour palate. Mouth feel is full and non alcoholic. Very good beer you can drink a few of.

Davros (2871) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 8, 2013
Pours amber with a fading head. Nose shows floral hops with a little fruit too. Some lemon notes too, along with an earthy note and a little sweet malt. Lovely mix of elderberry, lychee, lemon, earthy notes, a hit of acidity and some biscuity malt. Incredibly drinkable. Nice high carbonation works very well.

nosajhongkong (54) - North Point, HONG KONG - AUG 13, 2016
0,33L bottle bought at Craftissimo Hong Kong. Appearance: Pours a hazy orange amber colour with very thin white head. The head disappears quite quickly. Aroma: Fruity and hoppy aroma of tropical fruits such as passionfruit, peach, grapefruit and lychee. Some berries, citrus, pine and herbs too. Taste: Intense medium to heavy berries and passionfruit sourness. Later turns into some subtle lychee and lemon zest tartness. Light herbal and grassy bitterness at the end. Palate: Light to medium body with sticky and oily mouthfeel. Long-lasting tart and sour berries aftertaste. The finish is quite dry and funky with lively carbonation. Overall: Excellent sour beer. The complex tropical fruits aroma and intense tartness are refreshing and thirst-quenching. I think the Buxton/ To Øl Sky Mountain Sour and the Buxton/ Lervig Trolltunga are the two best sour ale I have had so far. Maybe Buxton do have a secret recipe for making exceptions sour ale.

dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - JUL 13, 2013
Hazy amber yellow pour, thin white head. Soft lemony dry hops, touch of lychee, definite soft weiss character underneath. Dry, dry wheat but not quite lambic sourness - soft and complex with some hay flavours, tiny touch of vinous stuff, a whisper of pine resin lurking somewhere too. Elegant supple tartness on the finish. Absolutely astounding. Improbably perfect soft prickly carbonation. Call me a fanboy but this is up there with Axe Edge for me. Beautifully refreshing.

Leighton (19176) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2013
Keg at the Euston Tap - London. Pours murky, amber-gold with a creamy white head. Great lacto tang in the aroma, ripe lemons, mild baby diapers. Light to medium sweet flavor with tangy citrus, nice lemon bite, a bit of jammy fruits. Light bodied with average, massaging carbonation. Clean finish, further tangy lemons, a bit of funk, ripe tangerines. Wonderful stuff. Really clean and refreshing.

RaijinSen (369) - POLAND - OCT 9, 2016
Bottle. Pours clear orange colour with a decent, white head. The nose brings a very refreshing composition of passion fruit notes, pineaple, orangeade, lemon and vitamine C. The taste offers decent sourness of admirable quality, medium to dry body and really high carbonation. The flavours again are white fruits with long overripe mango aftertaste. The beer is so tasty and drinkable that I could guzzle a bucket of it if there was such a possibility.

McNeillR (2241) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 14, 2013
Murky light brown body, ringed white head after dissapaption. Bright lychee, creamy white pepper and nutmeggy nose with a wink of tart. Initial taste tooka few sips to get a handle on, the wheaty sour carbonation combination couldn’t be more on the button if it tried. Swirling wheat throughout but is subtle enough, tightly entwined against a sour blend of pink grapefruit and cloudy lemonade. The twine that binds it all together is a green, tropical hop that isn’t noticeable from the nose at all. Like swinging from four Tropicana cartons One after another. Carbonation sprinkles on the finish with a pat on the palate dryness that’s more well done than there there. Proper wig out tart bitterness on the linger you forget it’s a sour, so little scraping of the finish you expect. The ABV is smartly capped, because you just want to keep taking swings at this the moment you’re done savouring. Phenomenal collaboration.

Keg, Bow Bar, Edinburgh
