I went to the store excited to get a local sour beer on my travels here in southern California, and was excited to try this beer because I will be going to Santa Barbara soon. Unfortunately I was very dissapointed. I may be too harsh of a critic, but it seems too young/commercial - but not so professional. Granted the sour taste is there- it just seems like they are just getting started on this project. It is very cloudy/chill haze. It seems rushed, and is WAY over carbonated in the bottle i got- making for a 1 inch pour into a snifter full of foam. really dissapointed- should have stuck with Russian River, or lost Abbey.

I left it in the fridge over night after that review to see if the rest of the bottle would get better with a little fresh air- Still way over carbonated, but the beer did get better.. still hazy though
