May 2016 - Bottle share at Canary Wharf Sour, Sour and More Sour Tasting as ’Mraz The Cardinal’. Nice artwork, and red wax topped. Many thanks to Cloin for another face scruncher. Dirty orange, hazy, opaque, small foamy off-white head. Aroma is mostly swimming pool, some toffee and light fruits, some snooker table cloth. Body is smooth with tingly carbonation. Taste is acetic, vinegary, light toffee, quite harsh and reflux-inducing. Just OK for me. Found it quite hard going just sharing a bottle, so I imagine a full bottle would be a chore. (3.0)

Bottle thanks to Cloin. It pours hazy brown with a medium yellow beige head. The aroma is earthy, woody, funky, musty, dried fruits, damp leaves and fruit cake. The taste is crisp, tart, lemon sherbet, sour apricot, peachy, decent acidity, tea bag, wood and damp earth with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Aroma is mellow, but taste is decent.

slowrunner77 (12972) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 10, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2017 Bottle: brick red pour. Mraz continues to impress with this dialed in sour. Wine and oak notes throughout. Moderate to heavy acidity. Fruit and oak linger. If the pucker/acidity were just a touch lower, I’d score this even higher.
Batch 2 blend 2 more vinegar and way more wine. Still nice, but gotta dock it.
