Holy shit. The aging on this bottle mellowed out the super sour aspect everyone seems to be talking about. Aged, this bring a the lemon upfront with the lemonface.

Comes out a vibrant yellow with a full on inch of white head on the top. Plenty of carbonation. Aroma hit massive levels (Upland) of sourness, behind that was a small amount of oak and funk. So much lemon though.

Taste, eee gad if this isn't one of the most acidic and sour battery acid (Upland) kinds of beers around. Drop this and a kiwi lambic together and watch your stomach erupt like in that Aliens movie.

Its far from complex, lots of acidic lemon leads. Not overly funky, but its there, same with the oak. Otherwise, its interesting and still a fun drink. Just bring your friends and antacids.

This thing has aged wonderfully. Some people are saying it's too sour, but whatever. If you like sours, you'll love this.

Upon release this was described as "offensively sour." It has since mellowed to "slightly annoyingly sour."

So super funky sour on the verge of vinegar, but oh so damn tasty. Heavy acetone (another favorite). Super clear, really thin, but still SOLID!
