Thanks to callmemickey for sharing.

Pours a hazy, bright pineapple juice color with a one finger white head that quickly settles into a thin, lasting ring. Sporadic spotty lacing left behind.

Slight solvent/chemical-like aroma with strong spices. Lots of ginger, white pepper and lemon grass with some citric acidity and sourdough bread. The solvent chemical notes are really overbearing though overtaking the other notes.

Wow, this beer has a crazy amount of harsh acetic acid! So much so, it destroys almost all of the other flavors. Very strong acetone/solvent chemical flavor completely overpowering everything else. There's some sour lemon acidity and bready yeast as well but they are hard to pick up underneath all of the solvent/vinegar. Complete acetone bomb with harsh, rough solvency. Impossible to finish. All but one person at our tasting poured this down the drain(AKA Ryan's stomach).

3.81/5  rDev -0.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A-Cloudy bright yellow one finger head that doesn't last very long.

S-Mild tart notes, wheat and then tones of lemon. Lots and lots of lemon. very slight ginger.

T-Starts and ends with lemon. The lemon flavor was good but there was too much of it and it didn't balance well with anything else. More tart than sour. Some wheat and ginger but once again dominated by the lemon.

M-Lighter, tad watery slight carbonation.

O-A good beer that could become much better if the balance improved.
