Another sour poured & passed around at Mista's place. I usually don't review when I'm out & about (or aboot, if you're in Canada), but with a bunch of sours I'll probably never get to try again, it seemed like a good idea. Have been wanting to try this one for a while.

Pour is a filmy red color, very still. Nose was straight-up sour, not getting much fruit/guava or anything else. Not sure I like where this is going.

ISO:FT might have the greatest name of all-time, but it couldn't stand up to the other sours at the tasting. Harsher & more one note than the two previously sampled, this brew is mostly unalloyed sour with a faint side-dish of bitter guava. I couldn't tease out either the barrel notes nor the other ingredients, which left me disappointed. 3-4 ounces went down about right.

Glad I didn't land this one via trade, but it continues a trend of unfortunate collaboration mediocrity, which seems to be the rule rather than the exception. A strictly average wild.
