Tasted at the Black Friday tasting and generously supplied by Dak. It pours an amazing bright vibrant rosy red purple sort of a color and seems it belongs at a Dr. Seuss fairy tale holiday meal and it supports a thin pinkish white head. Holy hell, what is this? OK the aroma, it is simply bold and big and runs toward crazy beyond belief. I get crumbly blue cheese, bloated bird feces, soiled and molding old diapers, earthy rotting fruit, fresh vomit rimmed with bile, vinegar, body odor and revolting to the point you’re not sure you want to go on. Well, the oddness and depth and intrigue and it’s this whole aroma put together that smells very intriguing thus it pulls you forward. The taste has yummy refreshing exotic fruity tartness, moldy crumbled blue cheese, vinegar, body odor and a pleasing earthy fruitiness that pulls it together and balances it out. Crazy insane beer.

Sour. Pink. Hottest sweetest beer I have ever had. The head and the color must have come from Scarlett Johansens crotch.

Sampled @ the BF tasting via Dak...happy to have sampled! Visually, absolutely nothing compares...and I mean nothing! Vibrant, neon pink/merlot hue with a very small cotton candy head. Carbonation is a bit aggressive and bubbly...wish it was toned down a hair. Flavor shows tons of passionfruit, dragon fruit, grapefruit, belgian yeast, ripe pear, and pineapple. Love the yeasty qualities and low ABV...still incredibly tart. Great beer!

This is one of the most interesting brews i have ever tried. Let me tell you that this beer smells terrible in the best way, has the MOST UNIQUE color i have ever seen in a beer, and tastes amazing. Can’t wait to see this brew in a 750ml bottle for sale!

This beer looks crazy. Hot pink/red. It smells...like a cheap strip club, and I mean that in the best possible way. Nicely sour and a bit funky. So perfumy. Salty. Just all around crazy. I did have to abandon the glass it was in because after numerous rinsings the hooker smell still wouldn’t come out.

The aroma is very funky, but super intriguing. The appearance is outrageous . I have never seen a beer this color. It is like a bright cloudy pink, almost hot pink. No lacing, no head. Taste is surely rich. There is a definite presence of dragon fruit and passion fruit. Try it!!!!!!

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2013 Fruit In The Room. Poured bright fuschia with a light pink head. Nose was very tropical with dragon fruit, passion fruit, peaches and pineapple and some nice tartness. Flavor was tart tropical fruits that was insanely complex and refreshing. Definitely my favorite beer from that day. Had again at Sourfest and it just keeps getting better and better.
