Pours ruby red and cloudy with a pink head. Smells of tarte fruit, lactic sour, some funky hints. Taste is hard to describe. It’s a pear/cherry taste with some velvety underlying tartness and an acidic finish. Great beer.

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2011 Had on tap at Freetail and a few times in bottle, aging one for a few years to see where it goes.. . Pours a crazy cherry red.. . decent foam, light spits of lacing .. . tart.. . flavours of cherry, wet hay, fake powdered sugar cherry koolaid( you known, prison style ), cherry skin, and what i’m guessing to be prickly pear .. . a milder sour, but enjoyable i really dug, especially from the the ’special edition’ 30ml bottle, you got me right- an amazing beer and I know one thing...We find that crazy typewriter, we’ll find our kidnapper..

Pours a light pink with no head. Aroma of vinegar, pear and cherries. Taste follows, light and slightly sweet. Subtle and delicious

Thanks to Eric... A great color of magenta, reminds me of CCB Pilot Series Dragon Passionfruit. A great super pink head, forms a great ring, awesome... The aroma is light funk with floral and herbal cactus notes. Really interesting.... The taste is a sweeter than I imagined, sugared flower water with some cactus juice, light tart raspberry finish... This is pretty outstanding, would love to have again.

Bottle, huge thanks to Caleb. Crazy pink/magenta dark rose, with white head. Aroma has big notes of bleu cheese, cactus, cheese, funk, acetic apples, berries. Taste has awesome tart berry, cactus, pear, and apple notes, with some big green apple vinegar notes in the middle, with a big dry sour in the finish that is funky, dry, and perfect. Really delicious, and very unique.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle... This beer rocks!… Lightly hazy, electric rose ale with a small, fizzy, white head. The nose is both fruity, acidic and funky – horse blanket, cherries and strawberries. Light to medium-bodied with intermediate carbonation. The flavor is sour and very sessionable. Fruity and nicely acidic – watermelon Jolly Rancher comes to mind. Finishes very tart, fruity, and then mildly dry. World class bottle of beer split with me by 50belair. Thanks, Matt!

Bottle. Clear pale watermelon jolly rancher color pour with a fleeting white head. Aromas of barnyard and ass. A little watery with fantastic funk, watermelon jolly rancher, and strawberry flavors. Light and refreshing. A great job by the kids from San Antonio..

Bottle at a tasting at James’ place. Pours a beautiful ruby red grapefruit color, mostly clear, with a soft thin pink head. Soft fruit, berries, goji berry, light tartness. Lactic on the nose. Gently carbonated, lovely fuzzy berry notes, nice acid. Apparently there’s prickly pear in here. Nice. Great flavor, a wonderful amount of subtlety. Lingering acidity with a touch of funk. Absolutely beautiful. Like a wonderful imperial Berliner Weiss.

On tap at Freetail bottle release. Aroma is sour, slightly floral and slightly sweet. Appearance is an absolutely gorgeous ruby red with a pinkish bubbly head and delicate lacing. Medium carbonation. Taste is sour and fruity with hints of rose, lavender, berries and grapes. Smooth and easy to drink. Absolutely does not taste like it’s 6.9% ABV so be careful! One of my Freetail favs for sure!

Bomber at CL release, what the hell is going on with this color its like magnetic pink rose peddles man. Really out there and fitting cause this beer is just full of surprises. Figured this koolaid beer was gonna be a straight up fruit beer but not so much. Funk y cheery notes, light skins and pit. A hint of oak with some spicy prickly pear notes. Really sublime sad i didn’t take better notes.
