Bottle (2010)

Acquired via trade
Thanks, MeisterSmudge!

Light in color than I anticipated, but maybe only because I'm comparing it to the "persimmon colored" label on the outside of the bottle. Clear light golden with a small ring of near-white bubbles atop. Leaves the glass nearly clean, though it does leaves an oily sheen down the glass.

An interesting aroma, and nothing like I've had in the past. Persimmon character, bright and expressive, along with some lemon, and a somewhat strange paint thinner aroma, unfortunately, most likely from the yeast.

The flavor is better than the aroma, as the paint thinner flavor (no, I've ever drank paint thinner) is fairly well hidden, big sour character, persimmon, lemon, and some mild, though in this case, complementary Band-Aid flavor. Very drinkable, even with the strange flavors noted.

Medium bodied with high carbonation.

I've had this beer a number of times now, and I think it was best nearly a year ago. Drink up now if you have it! It's most certainly not getting any better, though will probably always be a very tasty, flavorful, very sour beer.

Thanks to rudzud for sharing.

Very little fizzy head, sounds like a soda bubbling, lots of yeast chunks, cloudy yellow banana Berliner Weiss color.

Nose is tons of sour, tons of lactic acid, light lemony like fruit and fruit rind, tartness and just pure lactic acid heartburn.

Taste holy Shit sour, redefines sour, so much sour and lactic acid, makes my glands hurt and eyes water, so sour my balls hurt, lactic crazy, sticky little flemmy, big lemony tart with little funk. Finish is dry bready but tons of burning acid, sour funk, tart lemon rind, and pure fuck your esophagus. Also late brings an awesome lemon mouth watering tartness.

Mouth burns the Shit out of everything, but still drinkable and tasty, nice carb small bubbles. 425

Overall very interesting, almost undrinkable as its so sour, but still delicious, walks the fine like of awesomeness.

Shared with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice hazy light straw hue with some thin head that faded to leave light wisps and halo.

S - Aromas of big sour acid, lactic, faint faint fruit, light sour tart.

T - Taste is lemon, persimmons, absurdly sour. Seriously, this is just unnecessarily sour. Huge lactic acid, burns the throat it's so sour. More sour than sucking on a lemon! Tasty for sure but yeah...in your face sour. Super tart, assertive, lemon rind. Complete overkill, but in a good way.

M - Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated, crisp, clean, WHAM sour.

O - Overall this beer was way more sour then I thought it would be. Aromatic, tasty, very impressive that it could be so sour yet still drinkable.
