Bought this beer twice. $16.99 bottle, little bit of more money on this one, but well worth it. Very sour! Best sour ale as I tested so far. I actually have bought two bottles and they both were a treat. Weird taste, but after the taste you just want more and more and more!!!!

One of the best beer experiences I've ever had was in Fort Collins at a little cheese bar during GABF week. This happened to be on tap and I got a pint of it with a few select cheeses. Was a holy experience. I believe I admitted to my waiter at the time that I was euphoric.
