Currant, meyer lemon, grapefruit, star fruit nose, very nice. Brown with a maroon hue, thin tan head. Currant, grapefruit, blackberry, starfruit. Medium body, moderate carbonation. This was really neat, nice complexity of exotic flavors that complimented each other very well. Nice hoppy sour. hershiser2 (3972) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - FEB 11, 2018
$2.39 bottle from Rio Hill Wine. Pours brown with a small beige head. Aroma of cat piss, pine needles, lemon, black tea. Flavor is a weird, sour funky cat-piss-like pine broth. Black tea, lemon zest and juice, grape skins. Not my thing. raymow (1937) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2018
bottled - interesting light brown color. Nice sour aroma and flavor. Not bad. jgb9348 (6730) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 2, 2018
Dark brown coloured body with a thinnish, very fast-dying pure white head on top. Aroma of citrus, light tea, grain, alcohol and a big dash of raspberries and tart lemons - interesting and somehow mouth watering. Light-bodied; Sharp light citrus and floral flavours with a very light sweetness of fruits, grain and a super tart and interesting berry and citrus flavour. Aftertaste shows more of the raspberry, strawberry, lemon, lime and citrus notes with a light malt backbone and only a touch of sugars near the tail end - this one (from the name alone) is all about the sour and tart notes throughout. Overall, an interesting beer for sure that shows a lot of tart, soured notes where most of them work out well, but some are left a bit unchecked and unbalanced. Still, nice to sample from the reliable Easton brewer and well worth trying if you like the style and can find this (I found this many states away from home and PA!). I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Corner Store (Bait and Tackle) in West Palm Beach, Florida on 26-December-2017 for US$3,29 sampled in my hotel room at Disney World [Dolphin] on 01-January-2018.

Poured into a sample glass (6oz) from a bottle. Virtually no nose is present. No head really; no lacing. Murky unfiltered pour; nothing appealing. Refreshing, spring water quality is present. Really copy cats an Arnold Palmer (so it doesn't taste like a beer). Strong citrus finish. Probably wouldn't have it again. Dacrza (1096) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - DEC 27, 2017
DATE: December 27, 2017... OCCASION: watching Garfield's Christmas with the boys--a classic passed on... GLASSWARE: La Fin du Monde tulip... pours an instant issue: a velvet-dark body, not at all what the description (or most sours?) claims it to look like... an off-white head that collects to a quarter-finger ring, smearing to a thick, extended lace... first scent is tart, sharp, and flowery... lightly boozy too, with a vinous, woody impression that makes for a sincere first impression... as expected, dry at the finish, with a medium-bodied delivery that encourages its next sip...what is missing here is the aggression, the burn associated with some sours... flavor profile drives blackberry, red grape, warm bourbon, tart apple, and brown sugar... a nice attempt at the style, with the high ABV acting to make this more of a late-night accompaniment... kassner (1787) - Wexford, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 21, 2017
Cherries, well balanced, light cola color. No head or lacing but certainly refreshing. On tap at Stacked. Inbreak (7047) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - NOV 4, 2017

Taste is dry sour-ish fruity, soda powder, fruit stones, overripe dark fruits, dark malts, grass, minerals, sour winegum, berry skin, hay.
