Bottle pours hazy burnt gold with a white head. Aroma is jam packed full of lactic goodness. Notes of vinegar, oak, lemon, peach, and a touch of funk. Flavor shows the same with blazing acidity to back it up. This stuff is amazingly mouth puckering and I love it. As it opens up, it even seems like it gets more sour! Definately not for the feint of heart. If you donít like sours,donít bother, just send it to me and iíll drink it!

Wow! I was told this is sour, but didnít expect it to be this sour. Lots of granny smith apple and vinegar. Plenty of funk. This is definitely for those who love a sour and vinegar bomb.

UPDATED: OCT 18, 2012 Bottle generously shared by Nick! Dark scarlet copper pour with a small ivory head. Didnít leave a trail inside the glass. Enamel peeling sour with lots of unripened berry, vinegar, tart citrus, lemon zest, cherry skin and wood. This thing was uber aggressive. Made my teeth bleed and I loved it! Now Iíve got to seek these out!

Live Rate! Bottle shared by dak-billy -- thanks! Pours a hazy copper color with a trim ring of off-white foam. Smells and tastes agressively of lemon juice, Sweet Tarts, and red wine vinegar. This brings the sour hard. Havneít had anything like this since Trinity Old Growth. Boom.

BottleÖ This beer rocks!Ö Pours hazy and caramel-colored with a small, fizzy, white head. The bouquet is acidic, ultra funky and mega fruity - sour cherries stand out. Full-bodied with a mildly creamy mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. The flavor is intense Ė caramely, acidic, funky and just plain super-sour. Finishes up much the same. Intense tartness coats my tongue for a long while after each sip. Thanks go out to daknole for sharing his bottle of this world class beer!

Bottle, big thanks to Kevin for this. Reddish orange with white head, aroma has notes of acid, lacto, sweet tart type funk with a touch of lemon and cherry. Taste is big battery acid, lemon, mouth puckering acid with a big lasting sour finish. Intense, intense sour. Like this a lot, but canít do a lot of it...
