Horrid. Like a mix of vomit and nail polish remover.

Props to BJhorvat for bringing this to DLD and so we could have a legitamite comparison to Cable Car. bwahahaha, I kid I kid...

I'm not going to get to detailed because I made it through two tastes.

once it hits your mouth it tastes much like you would expect an American Wild sour to taste like. However within 5 seconds the sour turns into the exact taste of fresh puke. No one would have more than a sip and that includes the 6 or 7 random guys at DLD that we gave pours of. We even offered someone $20 to chug the remaining third of the bottle, no bites.

Bottle # 1/336

Brought this bottle to an "American Sour" tasting at a friend's place. The bottle was shared between about 12 people or so, and the reviews were very similar to the reviews on here: the majority hated it. But, there were a few people (including myself) that were glad to finish the bottle and actually enjoyed it.

A - Golden blonde in color with a small, receding head.

S - Acidic and funky. To me it smelled like lemons and vinegar.

T - Very acidic and vinegar-ish tasting upfront, but that fades into a sour lemon / grassy taste. Other people thought it tasted like nail polish remover and were immediately ready for a new beer. By no means was it the best tasting beer of the evening, but I didn't find the taste objectionable at all.

M - Mouthfeel was thin / medium bodied.

O - I wouldn't go out of your way to find this, but if someone opens a bottle I would suggest giving it a try with an open mind.

Reviewed from voice notes taken at a previous tasting.
Typed up in an attempt to finally consolidate all of my reviews in one place.

I'm a huge FFF fanboy.... so please understand that this review is truthful. Painfully so.

Looks kinda like a gueuze... Golden yellow with a small white head.

Smells like easter egg dye.
You know that smell-- that vinegar/chemical/fake wood/formaldehyde. Actually, it smells like easter egg dye in an open vat in a room fitted with fresh wood paneling.

Little musty... Little earthy.... Little sour... But nothing really GOOD going on here. The aftertaste is actually QUITE unpleasant. Umm... Wow.

This is a bit overcarbonated... And it's like dirty and dank. Just burns funny.

Overall-- not a beer that's worth getting. If you have one: TRADE IT.
If you don't have one: consider yourself lucky.

Really sad.
