COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named after atom bomb test grounds, designed by a French car engineer - the bikini was to many a disturbing and degrading creation and fortunately for others a symbol of emancipation. This is attractively light bodied, seductively well balanced and very drinkable Sour Bikini is anything but a sissy beer.

Taste is really sour, zesty grapefruit and lemon peel. Salty note as well. Some bitterness too and light sweet tropical fruits. Lightish juicy body with high carbonation.

islay (3036) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 11, 2017
22 oz. bottle, consumed on 9-10-17. Pours a clear, dark gold with a small to moderate amount of beige head. Shines bright in the sun. Highly effervescent and nice color; hence what would have been a high appearance score. However, it is milky, cloudy, and much less attractive and darker tan in the final pour. I have to penalize the appearance score back down to average for looking like grapefruit juice mixed with coffee and cream. Pleasant, floral aroma features scents of kiwi and scented soaps. Strong and likable aroma. Quite sour and slightly bitter taste. Lemon-like astringency. Mineral. Watermelon. Soapy finish, which isn’t ideal. Not the most complex beer, but there’s a lot of acidic power here. Medium body, quite heavy for the ABV. Frothy and smooth. I like this a lot more than I expected. A well-above average Berliner Weisse. A classic Berliner Weisse, in fact, full of sour power and ready to be mixed with syrups. Hard to drink in quantity, but then again beers shouldn’t be consumed in quantity. 8.3.7.3.15=>3.6

Alpha10 (839) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 5, 2017
2017/08/05 - Pours a clear yellow straw colour with a soapy, shite head that quickly reduces and leaves moderate lacing. Aroma is tart lemon and green grape. Taste is tart lemon, vinegar, vinous notes and a strange backbone I can't identify. I read through some other reviews and someone else described the strangeness as "glue notes" which is close enough in my mind. Mouthfeel is medium with lightly biting carbonation and a tart, astringent, drying finish. Ok, but the strange flavours were somewhat off putting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can. Opaqie golden color, frothy white head. Sour, fruity aroma. Fairly bitter, sour flavor with some apple and buttery notes. Kind of weird flavor profile. Medium-light body, medium carbonation. Not my thing.
