Big thanks to my friend Chris for hooking us up with a bottle of this stuff! Had a sour tasting/bottle share at the house last night and we threw this one in just for shits and giggles. It was a blast!

Review:

The beer literally smells and tastes like acetone. It is very difficult to swallow. Hell, it's difficult to even get it in the mouth, because of the strong odor of nail polish remover. Once in the mouth, it is pretty sour, true enough. But the flavors of rubbing alcohol and acetone are so strong, that it is nearly impossible to get down. At one point, I was able to hold my nose and swallow my 2.5 oz pour, but others in the room were not quite as successful. You may have heard about "drain pours." Well, one guy did a "drain toss" with this one. If you haven't witnessed this before, it is basically what happens when someone slings all the liquid out of his or her glass into the sink, when standing several feet away from the sink. Pretty awesome maneuver.

Anyway, good luck getting your hands on this rare bottle. There were only a few hundred made. It is definitely worth trying at least once. I can't imagine that Dark Horse wasn't joking when they released this. If they were, I can certainly appreciate their sense of humor. Cheers!

I am trying to think of good things to say about this beer but it's difficult. I love dark horse but this is straight up rubbing alcohol or nail polish remover. There is zero carbonation. It looks like an amber or brown ale. The only blood orange taste is the bitter white pulp. Stay away from the Lambeak Wants series.
