look: 2.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

22 oz bottle into a goblet.

A: Pours a clear golden color. The head is about a finger high, with a white shade. Retention flat-out sucks, and there isn't much lacing left on the glass. It looks like a flat, cheap lager basically.

S: I'm a bit surprised by the acetic presence here. Some notes of lacto and cheesy funk can be found, but given how tart it smells, it could pass for a decent sour ale at times. But it's not perfect - I'm not sure where this faint meaty presence is coming from. Still, though, a pleasant surprise coming from a Berliner.

T: Oh wow, that is tart! As expected, the tart attack is front loaded on the palate (primarily acetic/vinegary, but there's still some lacto in there). Once it fades, though, the flavor transforms into mostly diacetyl. Awww maaan. And really, this is all it brings - tartness and some lesser buttered popcorn. No subtle fruitiness, no perceptible wheat, no nothing. Even worse, it doesn't seem to integrate that well - if it did, I might just be singing its praises right now.

M: The feel is pretty rough/tannic, as expected from a sour. Because of the diacetyl, though, it doesn't really go down that easily. There's a lot of carbonation as well.

O: I'll give it credit - it's both sour AND cheap ($5/bomber). It just doesn't seem to have much balance, though. Sure, the sourness is nice, but it's devoid of the lesser subtleties that make sour ales great. Since it's so cheap for a sour, I still think it's worth trying if one needs a cheap tart fix.
