District of Columbia

2.55/5  rDev -32.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

appearance: yellow peach with little carbonation

Aroma: very sharp and sour, lots of acid and a touch of wheat / lemongrass

Taste: Tastes like acid, incredibly sour. Not particularly pleasant as it lacks character or dimension

Mouthfeel: thin, lacking in carbonation, but very sharp

Overall: outside of proof of how sour a beer can be there is no reason to consume this one. No complexity, depth, funk, etc. Perhaps the best argument that turning sour to 11 does not a good beer make; everything that is wrong with the "extreme" beer movement. I think if you try to be objective about the judging criteria it is below-average in almost every way; frankly I feel generous.

3.84/5  rDev +1.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Hazy golden colour with no head. Okay.

Moderately funky with tons of earthy character and then some goat. Interesting sweetness and fermented stone fruit notes.

Massively tart. Epic sourness. Interesting kumquat and citrus. Really like this.

Thin and fizzy. Nice. Pops on the palate.

Really nice beer. Massive awesome sourness. Great beer.
