Poured from a 500mL bottle into a Jester King stemmed glass. Acquired in a trade

Pours a bright cherry, slightly hazy body with a bubbly white head that reduces fairly quickly to leave little lacing or retention.

Aromas are sharp and inviting.. big, juicy strawberry aromas upfront mixed with tart lactic, vinegar, oak, farmhouse funk, cherry, lemon. I could smell this all day.

Upfront the strawberry shines with a pretty acidic sour berry taste, lemony citrus on the follow through with a nice oakyness to compliment. The finish is tart, unripe berries, funk, and a sour fruity bite. Mouthfeel is light and easy to drink. Tough to sip this one!

Overall an outstanding beer, nicely balanced and very flavorful.

The beer comes in a beautiful pink hue.

The beer has a decent amount of strawberries and tart qualities. Reminds me slightly of an Almanac fruited sour. More towards sour with touches of strawberry flavor instead of a jammy note like Atrial.

Pour is clear grapefruit pink with very little foamy off white head. Nose is a bit watered down fleshy strawberry, moderate plastic, light grain notes. Flavor is has the plastic right up front, ripe strawberries, some burnt rubber lingers through the finish, faint acetic acid, lightly sour. Lighter body, lower carb, fairly palatable.
