ElkSherpa’s the man for sharing this motherfunkin’ funk monster.
The bottle has a warning which might as well read: not for the faint of heart. This is a wild ale for those who like sour beers in the way that a triple IPA is hoppy and bitter for those who love hops. It takes mouthpukering sour/tartness and turns it up to 11.
This pours a cloudy blonde with a hazy spiral of foam. The tartness dominates all other sensory perceptions. (Well, smell and taste. I didn’t dip my finger in the glass. Nor did I hold it up to my ears to listen to it/) At first I pick up some green apples on the nose, with something akin to what I can best describe as sour vanilla. It’s not quite buttery, it’s not quite butterscotch, but it is intense. In fact, this whole beer is pure intensity. The flavor doesn’t disappoint in that regard. It’s intense (like the life of a repo man) with a singular focus (like a robotic killing machine sent from the future). Pure soured/tartness, like an edible Vitamin C tabled turned into beer form. Oh, I loved it and the conversation we had over this one. But if you’re not into the style this isn’t for you.

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.
