Hazy golden color with a small snow-white head.

Smells strongly of sour sticky grapes. Additionally there's a bit of pine and candy. I'm torn on this smell, even though it's definitely quite strong.

Taste is similar to the smell, but more subtle. The grapes don't at all dominate as much as the smell, but this is still a surprisingly sour beer for a Belgian IPA. Feel is very light, with little carbonation.

The sour element of this did not at all work for me. I could definitely see how someone would like this as it is quite unique. However, personally I'll pass on this next time.

Bought a 1 pint, 6 ounces growler for $6.50
