look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Bought because of marketing stating a new "sour beer" craze. As a fan and open mind to new beers, I decided to try.

Look: Bottle looks nice itself. Poured into a beer glass, light straw colored beer fills the glass with two finger head. Slightly orange.

Smell: Smells like sourdough. Reminds me of home-brewed ginger beer I brewed last year using yeast, sugar, and ginger.

taste: Oh my! The first sip sends me into a fury of new mouth sensation. definietly a different type of beer altogether. notices straw and citrus prominent. Like lemons and oranges. Very tangy and sour. Tart. The tartness overpowers the drink, but otherwise there is not too much complexity. Reminiscent of apple juice.

Mouthfeel: Light, stings the tongue as it goes down due to the high acid and tartness. feels tingly in the mouth. otherwise light and smooth.

Overall: I really like this beer. Definitely a new favorite. If you have never tried a sour beer, it is much different than anything you have yet tried. This beer is light, easy drinking, but is tart dominant. Reminds me of eating a green apple, but without the apple taste. As a beer, it lacks the dominant beer character, but is overall a great alcoholic drink. The best way I can describe it is a light beer with heavy tartness. I could drink one beer in just a few minutes. I would imagine, though, that after many, the tartness might become overbearing to some.

Cask: Poured hazy deep golden color Berliner with small bubbly head. Aroma consists of funky notes and lactic acid is quite powerful and maybe a bit too funky for its own good. Taste is also dominated by powerful funky notes with light wet leather notes with some tart notes, light acidity and some lactic acid notes. Body is quite full for style with low carbonation due to cask. Maybe because it was serve warm or maybe because there is just too much funky notes but I can’t say that I would seek that one again.

375ml bottle, part of a cavalcade of new sour brews to recently arrive in Alberta - mon pauvre, pauvre estomac!

This beer pours a slightly hazy, pale golden yellow colour, with three fingers of puffy, finely foamy, and rather creamy bone-white head, which leaves a bit of chunky major island group lace around the glass as it evenly subsides - lots of swirling effervescence after the fact, as well.

It smells of tart yeast, sour wheaten malt (so, sourdough, then), underripe lemon and red apple, and a bit of musty and floral hop bitterness. The taste is tart apple, pear, and lemon fruit, a mild milky sourness, gritty and grainy pale and wheat malt, salted white crackers, an earthy yeastiness, and more tame grassy, musty, and floral hoppiness.

The carbonation is quite active in its palate tingling and taunting frothiness, the body a so-so medium weight, and actually somewhat smooth, the tartness here of the benevolent sort, it would seem. It finishes dry, sour (in the fruity sense), and bitter.

Overall, this is a decent enough version of the style, tart/sour without being overbearing. A nice, refreshing sipper, and complex in a way that I'm sure I cannot really elucidate properly - so, if you like this sort of thing, check this one out.

Pours a clear hay color with a tall, white, cloudy head with good retention and lacing. The smell is dominated by tart acidity, corriander, lemon and maybe a slight funk. The taste is similar with tart lemon and acid notes but a faint salinity also comes through. The beer is light in body with good carbonation making it easy drinking. Overall a very pleasing berliner weiss.

Mild sourness but nice drinkability. A fine summer day beer, if no legend in its style.

Pours a slightly hazy golden straw colour with minimal white head. The nose brings forward fruits like apple, lemon along with a slightly floral smell. The taste has a lemony tartness and a slight grass like yeastiness. The mouthfeel is actually quite light with an active effervescence that gives its tartness a crispness but it still leaves me wanting. I've really taken a liking to sours these days but this beer seems very one dimensional to me.
