Great hop flavor with a nice drinkable lower level of sourness. Nothing crazy complex or mind blowing here, I'd say it's not quite on the level of le terroir. But at $5 for a 22oz how could you pass this up?

Opened with a big pffft. Pours a hazy, yet vibrant, golden color with three fingers of airy, bright white sea foam head.

Interesting aroma of melon, a little pineapple and some slight sour beneath.

Much more sour tasting, pretty intensely so -- lemony, musty, mouth-puckering. There's a flash of juicy sweetness (tangerine, white grape) and then an abruptly very dry finish. A ghost of "lager"-like beer (crackery malt, Noble hops) shows sometimes as an aftertaste. A little sourness lingers, too, but overall this thing is very dry. It has a heavy mineral water quality to it, as well.

Medium bodied and very heavily carbonated, like a seltzer water.

This is an okay wild ale. The flavors are solid, but the carbonation and mineral qualities aren't to my taste.

This beer surprised me. The grapefruit goes well with the slight sour taste.
