Bought this beer twice. $16.99 bottle, little bit of more money on this one, but well worth it. Very sour! Best sour ale as I tested so far. I actually have bought two bottles and they both were a treat. Weird taste, but after the taste you just want more and more and more!!!!

I had my reservations, but this beer really surprised me. The strong fruit (mango, papaya, grapefruit) blasts through at first, and then the sour hits hard on the back end. Realy, really unique sour and definitely worth the $16 price tag.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Look: Peach/amber, a little hazy. Nice fat white head.
smell: Wow, what a nose. Mango, citrus, maybe some strawberry with a little spice. A hint of sweet something, maybe molasses, plus just a touch of funk. Damn.
taste: Not quite the heights reached by the nose but damn tasty. Peachy/mango with a little funk.
overall: No idea this was gonna be this badass. Delish.
