Growler fill from Cranbury Buy-Rite. 1L; $9.
Pours a pinkish red similar to the color of ruby red grapefruit juice. Light pink head a about a finger tall blooms and falls to a subtle ring of bubbles.
Beers smells incredibly funky and odd. So much complexity. Blue and sharp cheeses come to mind. Juniper lending a hand as well. Some slight acidity on the nose as well.
Total palate assault here.. First few sips were ripe with some faint cherry, lime zest and lacto. Quite tart and sour. As it warmed notes of grapefruit and juniper come together with the lime and cherry rather harmoniously in my opinion. Would love this on a warm summer day.
Full bodied and expansive on the palate. Had full taste bud activation on this beauty.
I can see how some people would say this beer smells like baby vomit or something to that nature but in my experience with the beer I would say that they are smelling more the juniper than anything. Thought this was an amazing beer and surely a staple for springs and summers to come at Carton. Awesome job.
Also, think this is my first actual review on BA. Had to give this beer from the great state of New Jersey the recognition it deserves!

3.2/5 rDev -8.6%
A: Looks more like a tequila sunrise than a beer. Hazy peachy yellow fights with a deep blood orange. Small lacing, little head.
S: Just a blast of sourdough and milk that has just turned bad. Couldn't search for much complexity as it was really funky and rank, even for the style. It's still stuck in my nostrils 3 hours later.
T: Not as bad as the aroma would suggest. Blasted by mouth puckering sour. Definite lactobacillus. The cherry-lime flavors have no chance. Maybe a slight tartness reminiscent of bing cherries breaks through. Barely any brightness from lime. Needs something to combat the stank of the sour milkiness.
M: Refreshing crisp, low-medium body, but not a quick drinker. Good astringency in the finish.
O: Don't be turned off by wild ales just by this sampling. There are other more successful examples out there.
