The nose immediately gives away the style, as you can smell the tartness. This one is pretty intensely sour, dry, and easy drinking. I should have brought back a few of these from my trip to Bend.

(HUGE GUSHER!) Pours a cloudy golden with a small white head that leaves good lacing. Nose is of fruit gummies and melon. Taste is of same fragrant fruits and grapes. Body is medium and carbonation moderate. A pretty nice fruited berliner, I love the "grapes"!

cobaink2 (388) - seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 9, 2016
22 oz bottle. Opened and is a gusher. Really foamy. Taste is fantastic. Nice orange color. Tastes of sugary tart but nicely balanced. Medium balanced right where this beer needs to be. Solid. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Have had this many times on tap and from bottle. Pours out a pinkish color topped with a small pink head. Nose is very nice the hibiscus pomegranate is very present along with a nice tartness. Taste is great plenty of the pucker tartness hibiscus and pomegranate. Very nice and refreshing with a nice tart pucker.

Bottle shared by a friend. Clear gold pour with a thick white head. Aroma of malt, tropical fruit and lactobacillus. Malty flavor giving way to tartness and tropical fruit before a sour citrus finish.

Pours a thin head on a hazy straw to red colored body. The aroma is mildly sour strawberry and pomegranate. The taste starts slow and builds to a nice tart pomegranate flavor, a little grain. Great balance. The texture is crisp. An outstanding beer. Perfect for hot days.
