3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: a combination of apple juice concentrate and mushy brown apples beneath an apple tree in autumn, honestly, that’s the aroma that predominates to me, and I’m not even sure if apples are in any way involved in the brewing of this beer; Appearance: a very pale yellow on the pour that turns more orange/golden as you fill up the glass, light, white head that quickly dissipates after the pour, decent, consistent streams of bubbles that collect at the edge of the glass; Taste: a strong sour punch without any sweet (aka: not candy-like) upon initial draught, followed almost immediately by a bitter aftertaste and maybe something reminiscent of medicine, indeed, this is a very strange beer, maybe some soggy wood in there somewhere, the malts are hidden behind the sour, but, to me, the hops are completely masked by the sour, I still taste something apply, maybe almost apple vinegar, since I love sour ales, this is all very good to me, but I’m pretty certain that my wife would resolutely refuse to finish the glass after the first draught; Palate: mostly, the sour lingers, not a lot of complexity in the palate, mostly, I think, because the hops are so masked by the sour; Overall: a nice sour ale experience, since I still don’t have many sour ale experiences under my belt, I can’t really say one way or the other whether or not this is superior in its class...I’d definately recommend it to an adventurous beer drinker though!
Bottle @ home w friends/chef. Appearance: pours clear yellow with ok white soapy head and lacing. aroma/taste: bread, straw, oak and sour berries/grapes. palette: strong yeasty aroma, average carbonation, medium body, low to average sweetness, unbalanced by distinct acidity, average to long duration, and a watery texture.

Bottle. Clear golden body with a small white head. Yeast, petroleum, alcohol, citrus, tartness, oak. Hmm absolutely not what I expected, but somehow good. Quite weird. vinivini (2402) - Gomel, BELARUS - JUL 16, 2017

Zapach intensywny, kwaśny, ocet, białe wino, stajnia, zielone jabłka, siano, drewno. Kolor słomkowy, klarowne. Piana obfita, średnio i grubopęcherzykowa, szybko znika, zdobi szkło. W smaku wytrawne, kwaśne, średnia pełnia, ocet, stajnia, cytryny, zielone jabłka, drewno. Goryczka niska, wysycenie wysokie. chipmunk3774 (2) - - JUL 14, 2017 does not count
Quite tart, not as tart as Bakewell sour. Like it! Don't love it. But it's better than a fruit beer

This was my first sour ale, it grew on me the more I tasted, aroma was perfume, lemon citrus and slightly bready, clear light yellow in colour with a good sized white head, half way through I felt the lemon sourness kick in, with an aftertaste of spice pepper, carbonation was soft but tangy, increadable mmmeinike (185) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 8, 2017
Slightly hazy pale yellow with a small white head. Sour aroma with notes of white wine and vinegar. Taste of sour refreshing vinegar.
