4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Enjoyed from a 750ml bottle in a stemless wine glass. The beer pours a straw-colored yellow/golden hue, with an ample white head. The nose shows decided Brettanomyces character, along with a less aggressive level of acidity. As the sample opens up, a musty note also comes through, perhaps from the corked packaging. Together, the combination is utter and absolutely pleasing. The palate shows a lactic tart note up front, followed by some pleasing grassy/hay/farmhouse Brett character, and an absolutely bone-dry finish. The melange of pleasing flavors and aromas is outstanding. Carbonation is assertive, but not overly so, supporting the aromas and flavors, rather than detracting from them. The finish is nicely tart, leathery, and dry. Overall, an outstanding example of the style, even if it is widely available.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
375ml bottle at home. Clear golden with a white head to fades quickly. Aroma is pretty funky with notes of oak, zesty lemon, light vinegar and green apple. Taste is quite similar to the aroma with the funk and lemony notes dominating, the whole thing is pretty reminiscent of champagne. Light bodied, highly carbonated with a tart finish.

Bottle share from the Good Spirits Co Wine & Beer. Clear orange-amber with almost no head. The nose is so Belgian, and so good, it makes me wonder why anyone else bothers trying to make sours. Sharp, acetic, earthy. Taste is light, sharp, with fruity notes. Palate is quite short.
