From the dated 2014 edition 750 Into a Samuel Smith's perfect pint glass results in a hazy orange body with a quickly disappearing head, a few small bubbles rise and die in agony on the quiet surface. This is what I imagine battery acid to look like after its corroded itself through the center of a blood orange.
Carefully I place my proboscis near the surface and inhale, I get lemon rind, vinegar, and a faint mushroom note.
First taste causes my salivary glands to erupt in terror nearly doubling the amount of liquid in my mouth, my tongue lays flat and whimpers for mercy as the sour taste buds rise up in a jihad of conquest over the other basic taste buds . the overall effect on my morphology creates a shudder that starts at the top of my head and dislocates several vertebra. In short, something deep inside that holds all self loathing is having an orgasm of pleasure. I can do nothing but ride along and observe the conundrum of pain as pleasure.
This is what sour tastes like.
It lingers long and powerfully. No one will forget this beer-- ever.
There is rye in this? What did rye ever do to you?
A wonderful trip of a beer, worth the admission, but I think more than 750 of this in one day would lead to excruciating death by acid reflux.

Pours crystal brown. Moderate carbonation. Good for this style beer. Aromas of slightly fermented red fruits, aged malts and sourdough. After the first sip I couldn't say anything for about a minute because of how much saliva the acidity drew out. The taste started with super high acidity but gradually gave way to nice integrated malt with an amazing long finish.
