Leighton (21239) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2011
Bottle shared at GBBF 2011, Day 2. Pours a clearish amber with a faint, filmy head. Sour, funky nose, some berries and grapes. Light to medium sweet flavor with a great, refreshing sour tartness. Notes of fruits and funk. Medium bodied with light, smooth carbonation. Has a clean, tangy finish. Overall a superb beer.

chriso (7533) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2011
From bottle at Great British Beer Festival, day 3, on 4 August 2011. Not sure where this one came from but thanks to whoever for sharing. Amber colour with a slightly murky appearance. Good tart, sour, woody notes in the aroma. Strong sourness on the palate with a sharp. lactic, vinous feel and more musty woody notes. Tart mouthfeel. A new brewery for me and a very promising introduction. There’s some good sour stuff coming from Italy.
