So much off about this. Plastic, acrid smell dominates the nose and lingers on the palate.

12.7 C&C bottle poured into a Heavy Seas tulip (Bottled on 10/9/14)

A: Milky, grayish fog with a tinge of straw to it. No lacing or collar, but a nice head on the initial pour.
S: Earthen funk that is pretty singular and unique.
T: Nice balance of funk, tartness and wheat. A bit plain at times, but very drinkable. Not sure what the age did to this, but it probably mellowed it a bit or added some tartness. I can see why people don't like it though. The picture it paints isn't the sharpest or crispest. It is all kind of muddled.
M: Nice bit of carbonation that rises up fast but maintains a steady note of texture that isn't overly aggressive.
O: I swirled it all together and got the dregs in there as well. You can really feel it working in your stomach and quite quickly I might add.

Bottle purchased at Nathaniel Square Corner Store in Rochester, NY.

Pours a light pinkish-red, with a half inch head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells like wheat, lactic acid, and jammy strawberry. It's not quite as strongly berry-forward as I'd want, but still good.

The taste shows a lightly-sour Berliner, with a strong wheat background, slightly bitter, with some hay and lactic acid, and a strawberry finish. Like the aroma, I wish the strawberry was more forward, but at least it's definitely present.

This is light bodied, with a crisp and tart mouthfeel. It's very drinkable and refreshing.

Smuttynose really seems to be picking it up lately, this was pretty good.

Served at the Malted Barley in Westerly RI into a 22oz Hefe glass.

Pours a pale, hazy yellow body with a small ring of a white foam.
Aroma is somewhat plasticky but has nice hints of lemon, wheat, spices, fruit.
Taste is lightly tart apples, fruity, caramel, tart strawberry, creamy caramel. Easy drinker, light body with medium carbonation.
Overall decent, I'd def drink this on a hot summer day.

Came to my stool a fairly cloudy medium straw color with a tint of pink and without much head at all. The aroma is tart and lactic with a bit of strawberry sweetness to counter. Sour tart fruit mix with a bit of strawberry sweetness before a bit of plastic phenol flavor and funk come up to greet my palette. Medium body which is more than I was expecting for such a low alcohol brew. Moderate level of carbonation with a tart sweet mouthfeel. I'm glad I got to try this as its a pretty good beer.
