Can.

A: Citrusy, lemon zest, with moderate sourness.

A: yellow-orange color, lightly hazy, with a rocky thin white head that decent retention.

T: Lots of hops with citrus and lemon zest, light complimentary bread notes, coupled with moderate lingering lacto sourness.

M: Medium-light body with moderate carbonation and light acidity.

O: Solid; the beer has lots of dry-hopping character, though slightly acidic and much more sour than I was expecting!

Like Raul’s first time on acid...wtf? This beer is hog crazy! Hoppy sensations! Sour! Lacto! It’s like Kim Kardashian after a Botox injection...it’s almost too much to handle! But nah, I got this.

I like it!

12 oz. can poured into a nonic style pint glass.

Effervescent and pale it looks like apple juice with a slight haze. The one finger fizzy white head doesn't stay long.

The nose is moderate in strength and starts with light wheat and fruity aromas with sour apple following.

Taste is dominated by sour apple, lemon and brine. There is a tiny bit of wheat sweetness trying to come through along with some malt vinegar.

It is light and crisp with a juicy feel, more tangy than acidic. The carbonation is moderate.

Not bad, I'm not a sour beer fan but I think I could drink one of these every once in a while.

A: The beer is hazy pale yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation along with some hints of amber hues. It poured with a short white head that quickly settled down, leaving only a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of sour lemons and peaches are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and has additional notes of vinegar that contribute to the sourness.
M: It feels light-bodied and tart on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very sour, much more sour compared to other beers in the styles.

Serving type: can

A can into a teku appears clear golden with a white cap.

The aroma is soapy and has a funk to it like dirty armpits, taint, vinegar and grapefruit.

The taste is vinegar, lemony lacto, stale grain and grapefruit. Like the nose, this has a bit of offputting funk to it along with brine. A bit excessively tangy.

This is medium to lighter in body with modest carbonation. Not my favorite for the style, its too vinegary and I cant finish the can let alone want to drink more.
