The pour is a bright yellowish - orange with a finger of the purest white head Ive ever seen on a beer. The head subsides to a thin cap slowly. The nose is sweet and mildly sour with a candied sugar note and light malts. Thorough sweetness with mild sourness and fruity finish. Medium bodied with a oil like moutyhfeel. Overall, a nice sour beer, but a bit too sweet perhaps.

My bottle (250ml) shared with HogTownHarry & garthicus. Pours a deep orange-amber with a small diminishing bubbly off-white head. Nice aroma, quite fruity and a bit sour along with some sugary sweetness. Flavour is surprisingly fruity and a bit sour along with a slightly tart finish -- lovely really. Average bodied. I really enjoyed this, quite nice on a warm Summer day.

375ml bottle at 4.2%. Pours dark caramel with a small head. Aroma is sweet vinegar and some woody notes. Not over the top. Taste has sour lemons to start, then strong candy sugars and a sweet vinegar finish. Some Sharp lemon on the aftertaste.

Pours a medium brown with a small pale head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is toffee, apples, wood. Taste is sweet - apples, pears, candi sugar, and a touch of vinegar sourness.

AndrewC (373) - Canterbury, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2011
I quite liked this. Mildly hazy pale chestnut brown colour. Smells of candy. Sweet-sharp candy-floss flavours with hint of hazel or walnuts.

erickok (5932) - Leuven, BELGIUM - SEP 11, 2011
Clear and light brown with almost no head from the bubbly, soda like body. Raisin, sour green apple, bubblegum and grains. Sweet with only a light sourness in the middle. Short aftertaste. Easy to drink and quite enjoyable. (375ml bottle)

Prokroustis (745) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - SEP 10, 2011
Clear copper colour, extremely lively, white head. Aroma is nicely balanced between acidic and sweet. Some wine and wood notes along with some berries. Flavour is nicely balanced as well, with the sour notes along with the sweetness. Grapes, berries and a subtle mustiness. Very refreshing and enjoyable.
