Bottle pint sized bought at liquor paradise.

A - pours a decent pale yellow, good carbonation, about 1/2 finger of head. Stays with the pour a bit, dissipates slow, not bad.

S/T - aroma and flavor like a baby's diaper. Look. I'm going to be honest. There really is no getting around it. It literally smells like a baby's diaper. I wanted to really enjoy this beer, but that is what it smells like. I had two others share this beer with me and all three of us had to wash our mouths out after putting it up to our lips. What a disgrace!

M - You want me to review this after I've had the flavor of baby poop in my mouth? Yeah, did not think so. It's not happening.

O- What a rip off. $9 for the flavor of baby poop. Thanks Strand. Never again. I am boycotting your beer, just awful you would try and sell something like this.

Appearance-Nice golden straw with a tinge of green and an eggshell foam.

Smell-Cool fruit and vegetable some fruit roll up as well.

Taste-Tastes like a warhead after the sour wears off. Bitter lemon.

Mouthfeel-The finish is pretty good. A little heavier than I would like from a sour beer that I want to drink in the sun.

Overall-Not bad. Definitely shocked when I realized it was a sour beer. Oh well, sometimes surprises are fun.

A: Pours a hazy, pale straw-yellow with a solid 1-finger white head which leaves splotchy lace.

N: Sour with strawberries (being kind) or bile (being unkind). I'm kind, so let's say strawberries. Grainy wheat and earthy with some grape must, fruity and floral.

T: Slightly sour with a lemony zest, grainy, acidic bite.

M: Semi-moderate body and medium carbonation. Sharp, semi-dry, and mildly sour finish.

O: Refreshing, but there are better offerings out there; however, in a pinch this will do nicely.

On-tap at Naja's

The pour is a cloudy golden/straw color with a white head. The nose opens with a mild acidity and some fruit aromas. There's a definite vinegar quality to it and some interesting strawberry notes. The tartness is there on the tongue, but there is also a mild metallic flavor. Some strawberry fruitiness, mild malt sweetness, and a touch of straw and grass. Light vegetal qualities to both the aroma and palate as the beer warms. This definitely needs some work.

On tap at Strand Brewing Company in Torrance, CA.

Pours a hazy light yellow with a foamy off-white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is sour, tart, and funky with some grain, fruity, and mildly vegetal aromas. Taste is much the same with a sour fruit/vegetal aftertaste. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is refreshing but it does have some slightly odd aromas and flavors.

On-tap at Beachwood I,

A: Pours a hazy goldenrod with a medium soapy white head. Some solid lace.

S: Lemon custard and strawberry jam, odd yet intriguing.

T: Good lactic acidity. Lemons, strawberries and earth make up the remaining flavour. Bit more robust than the average Berliner.

M: Medium-bodied, not as crisp and clean as I'd like. Soft carbonation, nice acidity.

O: A solid Berliner. It's a bit uneven and is never really direct, but I did like it.
