A small white creamy head that recedes quickly. Hazy/juicy, orange-gold color with some specs of sediment. No lace. Smells of fruit punch, peach, mango and tropical qualities. Light body, tart and refreshing. Taste is fruit punch, peach, passionfruit, salt, mango and Lacto sour. Love the passion fruit, mango and peach combo. It’s like a true fruit punch. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sampler at Of love and regret. Pours yellow with a white head. Leaves some lacing in the glass. Nice tropical fruit, salt, and tart notes on the nose and tongue. Finished clean. Very quaffable.

bottle. Hazy golden with one finger head. Tart, lots of passion fruit, peach and other tropical flavors. Lemon sour. Doesn't really have much in the way of complexity, but this is quite delicious.

Bottle from Merchants. Aroma is very sweet and juicy, peach, mango, passion fruit, slight tart and slight wheat, mostly just a juice bomb. Appearance is golden, hazy, off white head that disappeared quick. Taste is sour, passion fruit, peach, mango, sugary, some wheat, extremely crushable yet puckering. Mouthfeel is light body, light crisp carbonation, tart fruit punch and slight wheat aftertaste. Overall, I was not expecting this level of sour on the taste based on the aroma, but this beer is quite good.

superspak (6104) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - SEP 30, 2017
330 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before 7/7/2019. Pours moderately hazy deep golden yellow/light orange color with a small dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin spotty lace cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of huge juicy peach, apricot, pineapple, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, guava, berry, lemon, lime, green apple, fruit skin, white wine, wheat, cracker, light lacto funk, and yeast earthiness. Incredible aromas with fantastic complexity and balance of fruity/acidic yeast, tropical fruit, and light-moderate pale malt notes; with big strength. Taste of huge juicy peach, apricot, pineapple, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, guava, berry, lemon, lime, green apple, fruit skin, white wine, wheat, cracker, light lacto funk, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate fruity/lactic tart/sourness and fruit tang on the finish. lingering notes of juicy peach, apricot, pineapple, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, guava, berry, lemon, lime, green apple, fruit skin, white wine, wheat, cracker, light lacto funk, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/acidic yeast, tropical fruit, and light-moderate pale malt flavors; with an awesome malt/tart/sourness balance, and zero puckering flavors after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from tart/sourness and fruit tang. Fairly crisp/clean finishing. Medium carbonation and light body; with a very smooth, moderately grainy/acidic, and tangy/tannic balanced mouthfeel that is awesome. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.5%. Overall this is an amazing fruited sour ale! All around incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/acidic yeast, tropical fruit, and light-moderate pale malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink with the modestly lactic/tangy/drying finish. Perfectly balanced juicy fruits and Lacto complexity; with just enough malts to balance acidity. A highly enjoyable offering.

drpimento (3801) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 9, 2017
Pretty good stuff and very much like tropical punch flavors that have been soured but in a good way. It’s not the kind of beer you want to drink a lot of but it’s nice for one period good aroma, nothing special to look at.

Dogbrick (14009) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 7, 2017
Sample during the ’Driveway Beer Inventory Reduction - Help Me Obi Wan’ tasting on 05/19/2017. Cloudy bright yellow-gold color with a medium white head that diminishes gradually to a film. Partial rings of lace. Aroma of tropical fruit, yeast and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of peach, mango, floral yeast and malt. The finish is moderately sour with a tropical fruit aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

glennmastrange (2931) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUN 3, 2017
Bottle. Maybe just some grain for the malt, but the rest of the aroma is mango, peach and passion fruit. Head is small, fizzy, off-white, with no lacing and is fully diminishing. Color is murky light amber. Flavor starts heavily to harshly acidic and sour, then finishes heavily acidic and sour. Palate is light, watery, with a fizzy carbonation and an extremely tart finish. Great fruity smells and super tart feel in this Sour Ale.
