Bottle through RBSH13. Pure acetone in the nose. Chemicals, gasoline, everything that is bad in beer is here except vegetables. Taste is vile. And I had to drink 4 ounces of this. I can’t say that someone would drink this and think that the public would want to buy this and drink it. Bad Bad Bad. FROTHINGSLOSH (8291) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 24, 2014
From the March 2014 Pittsburgh Ratebeer gathering. +++ Sampled from a 750 ml brown bottle this beer poured a murky peach-orange color with a medium sized foamy orange-tan head that faded and left decent lacing. The aroma was very tart orange, bread, pepper and had notes that were astringent and reminiscent of band aides. The flavor was tart, chalky and astringent with notes of Sweettart candies and band aides. Long tart, chalky, sour and astringent finish. Medium body. Gets worse with every sip. Absolutely awful.

This poured a hazy orange color with a white head Aroma was of acetone, lactic acide and light pale malt. Falvor was similar, a bit hrash on the mouth, definite acetone, but not to the point of undrinkable. Is this beer bad? yes, is it the worst i’ve ever had, definitely not.

Bottle shared thanks to beerman6686. This definitely isn’t as bad as everyone says it is. Sure the aroma is a tad pungent. Maybe slight poopy diaper and band aid but it’s not too crazy. The taste is much better than the aroma, however, the taste is quite tart. It definitely felt like my stomach lining was being eaten away. Glad I had the little that I did have and give the beer a real rating. jackl (8557) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Rating #3500. Cheers to Leighton! The pour’s disgusting. Deep, soupy orange. Possibly the most unappetizing appearance imaginable. The nose is terrible. Straight vinegar. If you dare sniff it for more than an instant, a creeping, malevolent acrid stench assaults your sinuses. The taste is truly disgusting. So aggressively sour and putrid. Like raad and daad if it had been filtered through a rotting corpse. Overall, dear god I hate myself for drinking this. this was even worse than I thought it would be. Legitimately the worst beer ever.

Bottle at the Pre-Zwanze tasting. Thanks to Leighton for this spectical of a specacularly bad beer. Tiny sippy cup pour, bleive me it was enough. Aroma is pungant vinegar / acidic. Milky caramel / shit water coloured pour thin scummy head. Palate is acidic and burns the esophagus and stomach on the way down. I would love to know the ph of this badboy. So acidic. REally vinegar flavour. Fetch the fish and chips. Theydon_Bois (21503) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2013
Craft Clerkenwell. Tuesday Horal Chugging Tasting, hand bottle (big thanks and no thanks to Leighton!!!), 17/09/13.
Has the appearance of 3 day old festival toliet water, murky amber reddish with a thin off white head. Only the lack of floaty globules prevents this one from a string of point ones !!!
Nose is straight from the inner workings of the Sarsons plant, rotten apple pulp, full on vinegar, mutated salt and vinegar crisp packet insides.
Taste comprises battery acid (I can only imagine!), high octane burning vinegar notes.
Not sure what kind of body this shit has - it just burns you, a real throat scraper, I pitty the plants in the bay window that got the rest of this - RIP.
Undrinkable. I pulled 3 or 4 convulsive faces on the back of this ! James in NJ - you owe me one, how could you let this out of your country think disease/germ agents etc ;) madmitch76 (26453) - , Essex, ENGLAND - SEP 18, 2013

Craft Clerkenwell. Tuesday Horal Chugging Tasting! Handbottle - thanks to Leighton for this unique experience! Cloudy amber beer, no head. Light dry palate with a slight crispness. Nasty vinegar nose leads to a reluctant half mouthful. Incredibly strong lemon acid and balsamic vinegar that is quite lierally painful to swallow, burning al the way down. Leaves the mouth watering, presumably an auto immune defence mechanism to stop the enamel on your teeth dissolving. Certainly not in anticipation of another sip of this god awful beer. As an exercise in brewing, clever perhaps, but not something that should be unleashed on the public!
Bottle "thanks" to jtclockwork. I’ve now tried this beer on three separate occasions and, as such, I think I can give it - without reservation - the perfect 0.5. The bottom line is that this beer is, quite literally, painful to drink. Indeed, I am fairly confident that if someone actually drank more than a few ounces of this beer they would inflict physical damage to their body, likely by blistering the esophagus or, perhaps, burning a whole in the stomach lining. Because this beer is, essentially, pure vinegar, though far more acidic than any off-the-shelf vinegar.teorn88 (8066) - Rimini, ITALY - SEP 15, 2013
The beer pours murky, copper-gold with pretty much no head. The aroma is all vinegar with hints of cherry, maybe some Jolly Rancher candy. The flavor is so sour you really can’t pick anything up. Swirling the liquid in your mouth induces goose bumps. The beer first burns your mouth, then your throat. And then, once you think it’s all over, the beer wreaks a special kind of havoc in your stomach. Yes, this is a beer that keeps on giving. The body is light and the carbonation is somewhat spritzy. The finish, as you can by now expect, is marked by harsh pain, burning acid, and extreme sourness. There truly are no redeeming qualities to this beer. I feel very lucky to have tried it, because I can’t imagine ever encountering another beer of this caliber; it would take a monumental effort from a brewer to achieve something like Lambeak Wants Blood Orange again.
Hand bottle at Bruce’s, many thanks to Leighton! It pours a cloudy red colour with no head. Aroma is just strong vinegar. No beer in it. Harsher than balsamic vinegar. Taste is just uber acidic. More than vinegar. Very difficult to swallow, it feels like it could really hurt you. Overall, I can see the potential as a salad dressing and would probably rate this 4+ on ratevinegar.com, but as a beer is just a disgrace.
