COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named after atom bomb test grounds, designed by a French car engineer - the bikini was to many a disturbing and degrading creation and fortunately for others a symbol of emancipation. This is attractively light bodied, seductively well balanced and very drinkable Sour Bikini is anything but a sissy beer.

Bottle, shared at RBAG by dfearnley. Hay golden. Big lychee and passionfruit character, unripened fruit sourness, quenching, really great!

Canned 2/26/16, drunk 7/8/16 at Loyal Nine.
High clarity to this golden-brass bodied beer. White head atop is thin and quickly fleeting.
Simple kettle souring is apparent in the nose with earth, whitebread and light salinity. Strong minerality even rusty at times, with a big lactic finish pepperred with light lemon.
Slick texture, well-carbonated and with a good attenuation, little/no astringency despite its very low gravity. Salt, whitebread, biscuit, lemon amd big lactic notes are fairly well-balanced and homogenized but there’s a bit too much breadiness and acid buildup as the beer wears on. Stiil, a lot of respect for the abv.
