3.28/5  rDev -20.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

Pours a hazy yellow with gold and orange highlights. A very acidic fizzy carbontion, somewhat boring but very to style.

There's a lot of citrus aromas. Strawberry dominates but the citric notes bring out hints of orange, pineapple, and passion fruit.

I'm not a big fan of strawberry, but thankfully the mix of light pepper, strong acidic notes, and a relatively minimalist malt bill keeps this pretty exciting.

Sour yet carbonated well enough to keep it interest. The 9.5% is very hard to notice.

Two major flaws with this beer. The price is high. The bottle is annoyingly large. I hope this is a beer that's WELL distributed otherwise opening this means 10 others aren't going to get it, really who makes a damn 765 ml sour? Put it in an 11.2 oz bottle or something!
