Bottle purchased at Nathaniel Square Corner Store in Rochester, NY.

Pours a murky, turquoise purplish red color, with a small fizzy head, and no lacing.

Smells very, very sour, it stings my nose. Very tart aroma-wise, tons of plum, some lactic acid. It smells incredibly musty, too, in a great way.

This tastes awesome. The plums are really strongly forward here, leading to it being much fruitier and jammier than I expected. It's definitely sour, but not as strongly as I expected. It's musty and slightly chalky, and it just tastes...damp, if that makes sense. Awesome.

This is fairly light bodied, with a really juicy and tart mouthfeel. The carbonation is moderate. It's really drinkable.

This lived up to the hype. Quite tasty.

Lovely, cloudy orange-lila color, reminding me of the pulp of a plum, no head at all.

Has a very sour, tart nose with fruity hints in it. I honestly can’t tell for sure that I am actually getting plum, but I try to imagine that :). If so, its reminding me of the pulp of unripe plums, with stone hints to it, blended with leather, old cheese and hay.

Unexpected low carbonated with a very sour, dry, citric foundation. Underneath the dominant, acidic tartness, refreshing sour notes become recognizable, with a subtle, lovely hint of fermented fruit to it. The fruitiness itself is surprisingly sour, of unripe plums and green apple, which is very soft on tongue, while the brett acidity dries out the palate. Not too fruity, compared to the sour aspect of the beer, a subtle addition. During the finish, acidity reaches its peak, overwhelming the fruit flavor completely, leaving back a slick, tremendous sourness.
