teorn88 (8066) - Rimini, - MAR 6, 2017
Keg at the brewery tap room. It pours a clean pale yellow color with a minimal white head. Aroma is grassy herbal and tart with notes of lemon and sage. Taste is also acidic tart dry and herbal with more notes of lemon peel, sage, oregano, grass. Light to medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, decent

Draft 0.25l at Foeders Amsterdam, The Netherlands. 26.04.2017. Pour it hazy yellow color with small white head. Aroma citrus, some vinegar kind of pickles. Taste sourish herbal spice, some lemon, tart finish, not so balanced for my taste, medium sourness, light body, slick feel, lively, astringent finish.

330ml bottle ([email protected]’s)
Lemony aroma. Lemon juice, wheat, taste. Lactic acid and lemon juice bite. Horrible modern kettle-soured nonsense almost entirely lacking in beer.

berkshirejohn (6759) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2017
On tap at the Waterloo Tap, Waterloo. A hazy straw colour with a tight white head; interesting herbal citrus aroma; the taste is tart, but not too tart, and has a good blend of herbal and citrus flavours. Interesting.

(Keg at BrewDog Helsinki, 20170311) The beer pale yellow and cloudy. Its head was small and white. Aroma had sourness, tartness, fruitiness and sweetness. Palate was light bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were tartness, sourness, sweetness, fruitiness and bitterness. Aftertaste was tart, fruity and bitter. A pleasant tart brew.

3.6
Alengrin (5884) - BELGIUM - MAR 8, 2017
Sour ale with - rather unlikely - herbs, at ACBF. Snow white, quickly dissolving, thin head, hazy straw blonde robe with vaguely greenish tinge. Aroma of indeed mashed lemon vervain leaves (including their ’lemon-scented soapiness’), less so of the ’green’ qualities I associate with lemonbalm (a plant I’ve been familiar with since my earliest childhood) and even less bayleaf, but some fresh sage leaf does come through; other impressions involve green tea, salted apricots, chalk, lime zest, sourdough. Vivid fruity onset, unripe green lemon, sweet pineapple and pear, gooseberry, spritzy carbo, lots of lime sourness but no acidic puckering effects, rather a gentle drying tartness accentuated by the lemon vervain and lemon balm especially in the end, where green, aromatic, ethereal herb qualities rise up, over a soft bready malt middle; finishes very chalky, with ongoing lemony sourness, very refreshing. Utterly weird concoction, the chalkiness was a bit much for me but does remind a bit of lemonbalm; I can imagine something rather daring like this will sharply divide opinions, but it does appeal to the amateur botanist in me and brings back long-lived memories of fragrant garden plants.
