    I am known as a ticker...of my over 1000 BA reviews, I have more than 65% with a negative rDev and it has even been termed from one of the guys I drink regularly with...its called 'Being Merc'd' or 'Properly Merc'd' or just 'Merc'd'....so here is my review.

    A: Hazy Golden Straw/Orangish Hue, Passes Some Light, White Head, Decent Lacing 4.25
    S: Light Peach, Hay, Yeast, Mild Apricot 4.00
    T: Light Peach, Yeast, Mild Apricot 3.75
    M: Decent Carbonation, Light to Medium Bodied, Mildly Sour, Mildly Drying 4.00
    Overall, this beer has a lot of qualities of a Berliener Weiss and not so much of a sour beer. With that being said, it reminds me a lot of the following beer...

    Maybe with a little less peach than they use, but for a home brew, Yeah, thats a pretty solid offering. Merc approved.

    I have had some of his other offerings so I am not surprised. Just means he may get a knock on his door by a big ugly man soon.

    Box from Giants24 arrived today and all I can say is, if my daughter was old enough to understand the English language, she would have learned some new fun words today. Holy mother f#{*€>ing s#^! did he knock it out of the park. Picture to follow, I have to go change my pants.

    I'm officially clueless as to my sender.
