Pours a light yellow translucent color. Nice nose of lemon, lacto, wheat, very clean. The palate is of crisp acidity, citrus, lemonade, wheat, and nice carbonation. Finishes dry and crisp. Well done.

This is my type of sour. Has an over the top sourness that tastes amazing. If you like really sour things this is a good one.

On tap at Bear Republic. Hazy golden color with no head at all. Very tart and acidic. It's pretty much the only thing you can taste. It was described as the lemonade of beers and I have to say that is a fairly accurate description. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sperine (283) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 6, 2013
On tap at Blue Dog in Chalfont, PA. My notes indicated that this was painfully tart and hard to work through. My palate has changed a bit since, but I'll stick with my review at the time.

timfoolery (1124) - California, USA - MAY 28, 2013
On tap at Pizza Inferno in SF. Aroma and flavor of Meyer lemons and not much else. This one starts well, but the flavor fades quickly and goes straight to sour/acetic and no flavor. It’s like riding a train and they never finished laying the tracks... Good vision, poor execution. Ok beer.

Vinegar and acetone. Just a horrible palate. I can tell there’s some good things going on in it, but it’s hard to see past that vinegar taste on the finish.
