Bottle to oversized red wine glass (what else bitches?)
A: Pours a straw-orange with a small effervescent head that recedes quickly to a rim around the edges.
S: Jesus this smells like somebody poured malt vinegar on top of hawaii. And I mean that in the best way possible. Big notes of both sweet and sour fruit up front: grapefruit, big lemon, tangerine, and sour apple all dance like prepubescent naked teens conjuring satan in the forest during the salem witch trials. This fruitiness is pulled by an acidic tartness that is surprisingly more sweet than the vinegar sourness that has been known to plague a select few LA sours that shall not be named.
T: First few sips were an overwhelming acidic pucker that kept my anus clenched through the end, where it finally faded into a funky and musky finish. Some subtle fruit sweetness, but mostly vinegar and acidic. Not like shitty Bruery sour-gone-bad vinegar, but the typical LA vinegar as mentioned above. As it warmed, the vinegar started to fade, and morph into a more juicy and fruity sour as the initial aroma would have suggested. By the time my first glass was empty and the second was poured, I fell in love. This beer is the pinnacle of what an AWA should strive for. Sour as fuck, funky as shit, but also unbelievably juicy. Green apple, lemon juice, and sweet nectarines stood out once it warmed. Finish is dry and full of unicorn semen. Like sucking on a green apple jolly rancher. Wo0ah daddy like.
M: HOLY SHIT WHO TAUGHT TOMME HOW TO CARBONATE PROPERLY?
O: Admittedly I am lost abbey fanboy, However, I don't hesitate to criticize them when they fuck up. They do fuck up a lot, but when Tomme gets his shit together, they are 100% fucking all time...this beer would be an example of being 100% fucking all time. Like an otter pop blended with lemon juice filtered through sweaty gym socks. And yeah, that was intended to be a compliment.
