oh6gdx (26447) - Vasa, FINLAND - NOV 26, 2016
Bottled (Spontaneous KSMT tasting). Hazy golden colour witha small white head. Aroma is toffee, some sour wood with mild ripe fruitiness. Flavour is very much sour wood with some citrus, mild herbs and spicy notes along with some slight yeasty notes. The sourness in the flavour came quite much by surprise, the aroma didnt give much of a warning here.

Bouteille 33cl de et partage avec Pierre T, merci. Dore, col blanc. Arme est plaisant offrant de suite un bouquet bois ponctu deffluves de raisins Chardonnay. Petit bouquet vert houblonn et une certaine douceur de grains arrivant en rtro rappelant un peu un lger biscuit. Palais est malt, lger, bois avec une acidit maitrise, rpeux qui perdure sans pour cela devenir trop au niveau acidit. Le ct barrique donne une belle note de vin qui nest pas dominante. En bouche je retrouve encore cette base plutt biscuite qui reste lgre et rappelle un peu leur bire Sourdough avec ce ct pasta madre au niveau levure et grains.

Towey1989 (2572) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2015
Bottle. A clear straw colour with a thin white head. Aroma of apricot, pear, lemon zest, some yeast funk, straw and slight wood. Taste of apricot, grapefruit, pear, sharp lemon zest, yeast, straw and slight barnyard. Light bodied and a mouth filling oily texture. A dry, clean, sharp lemon finish. A funky, lightly sour wild ale. Crisp, clean and close to a good Belgian lambic.

EdKing (2554) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2015
Bottle at home from We Brought Beer in Balham. A dull night in has just found an added dimension. One of Wild Beer Co.s best ever sours and its got some great Belgian lambic character. If you told me this was a new Cantillon beer Id believe you. Colour is a pale golden amber, no lasting head. Nose is genuinely lambic funky, farmyard, light fruity, peach, sour, tart, acidic, brown apple flesh, pineapple, white vinegar. This is really good. Think it might top barrel aged sour grapes as the best ever British lambic. Taste is tart, sour, light body, light white vinegar, white apple flesh thats turning brown, white wine and white wine vinegar, acidic bite. Its not a big full lambic flavour but light and fruity and acidic. Make this a regular chaps, if its always as good as this.

apickles (559) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2015
Amber colour with a very slight cream head, very slight fizz in the glass. Lovely sour nose like a lambic. Delicious sour taste with a wheaty after-taste - superb!

Theydon_Bois (18966) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 12, 2015
Keg at the MTB/Takeover, CBC St Giles, 28/02/15. Hazed orange with a moderate off white covering that dissipates quickly to nyadda. Nose is tarte peach, citric rinds, apricot pangs, straw, light funk. Taste comprises damp straw, more apricot plunder, mango, passionfruit, a very tropicana forward sour, light acidic strokes. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, zingy citrics in a very lightly puckered close. Solid refreshing sour, pretty simple but solid throat tickling stuff. Much better than the bottled version Id had a month previously and not got round to rateing.
