4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at CCB. I love the color on this one. The body is a dark pink/reddish hue that just looks insane. Off-white head with good lacing. The aroma is funky with some light guava and an off smell. Honestly, this one smelled like vomit/bile after a good while pondering what else was present besides the tropical, sour fruit aromas. The taste was nothing short of biting into a fresh prickly pear fruit (cactus fruit for those that might not know). If you’ve never had one before then you should go to your nearest decent grocer and buy one to really appreciate just how well this brew has taken on the flavor of prickly pears. Awesome. Light, tart, funky, full of fruit and finishes with a hefty dose of bran or cereal notes. I really liked this one other than the aroma which wasn’t terrible by any means. Good stuff.

On draft at Cigar City, poured an amazing red/pink color with a soapy white head. Aromas of tart fruit, rhubarb, and more fruit. Flavors are tart fruit, acid, rhubarb, and a smidge of sweet fruit. Real nice beer, I second the kudos to Ben comment, real nice beer, sucks that they won’t growler this one.

Pours a brilliant red with a soft pink head. Nose is sweet fruity, tart acid. Flavor is perfectly tart with incredible sour fruits. Awesome beer. Kudos Ben.
