Big thanks go to BA mymrnngjckt for sharing this brew. Poured from a 750ml into a tulip. The brew appears a hazed golden color. Some big bubbles form along the edge of the glass and hang out there until disturbed. A swirl doesnt do much but agitate another couple of bubbles to the perimeter.

The aroma of this brew is a mixture of apple cider and acetone. A hint of pear and apple fruited quality is present in trace amounts but it gets dominated but a perfume-like essence of plastic and nail polish remover. Unexciting and not inviting.

The taste is quite acedic. Acetone hits the palate upfront with a mild fruity perfume inclusion. It gets a bit grassy to herbal when trying to focus on something other than the acid. The aftertaste includes a bit of plastic.

This is a medium bodied brew with a still to mild amount of carbonation. While there is no denying how sour this brew is, it is painful and not in a good way. The combo of acetone and plastic was bad...it tastes like burning. Perhaps this was an awesome beer at one time? I dont know, I never thought id get the chance to try it and never will be able to comment on how it was fresh. But what this monster is now, is not good.

Big thanks to a generous trader for sending this one. Served in a Jolly Pumpkin tulip. Pours a clear deep golden color with no head. Almost completely flat. Nose is a bit cheesy with some backing funk. Completely still. Flavor is fairly harsh with heavy acidity. Some cider; no complexity.

Shared a recent tasting, thanks. A long time want, it was pretty cheesy though. Beer is yellow and mildly hazy, flat.

Aroma is a little acetone and a little cheese.

Beer is thin and flat on the palate, mildly cheesy, quite sour, acetic, some solvency, it is not too enjoyable, hard to drink. It be past its prime.
