Det här var kanske en lite roligare och intressantare öl än den var god, men den var god ändå. Smaken är förbannat syrlig men den är samtidigt välbalanserad. Slutsats: den gör skäl för sitt namn.

Treebs (872) - , Illinois, USA - OCT 19, 2012
750 ml C&C bottle served in a Deschutes tulip. Shared in line at DLD. A: Pours a clear golden amber color with a frothy and bubbly pure white head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thick ring and leaves some splotchy lace on the glass. S: Some sweet fruits, light tart green apple and some grassy flavors. T: Very light in the taste. It’s like there’s nothing here. I have to struggle to find anything besides some sweet lychee fruit and some grassy/wheat flavors on the finish. M: Clean and light bodied. It is refreshing and not drying at all. O: There’s nothing sour about this beer, it drinks like a grassy wheat beer with smidge of fruit added. Not worth half of the $28 price tag. It doesn’t taste bad by any means, but please give me a sour lambic or at least something with some puckering tartness if you’re going to call your beer "Sour Bitch."
