a really weird series of beers, this the weirdest of the three i tired in succession. it says on the can a triple fruited sour ale, but that hardly does this justice, its like some of their other flavored sours in that its really thick and unrefined out of the can, but this takes it to a whole new level, and is easily the densest of the three, the bottom half of the can more dribbling out as a semi solid than pouring out like a liquid, with chunks of fruit in the permanent head like a jello mold, slippery and thick to drink, i mean, really the texture of a smoothie with frozen fruit and heavy yogurt and such, super weird in a beer, and even though it has some carbonation and a low abv, neither really help make this feel very light, hard to even describe it as beer in terms of feel or flavor. tons of peach to this, no doubt its authentic and there is a lot of it in here, thankfully not too much pepper, i smell more than i taste, with just a little back of the throat warmth to it, honest flavor from it, just not overdone, nicely proportioned between the two, and they are certainly cohesive. this is sweet enough and thick enough that the sourness and acidity are fully offset, and overall, it tastes great, but ends up a little more like a blended frozen cocktail than any kind of beer. there is a line to this sort of thing, and this crosses it unapologetically. in the end, this is way too new school and forced for me, like, who would ever drink two of these in a session? its like just for the sake of it, but as a fan of experimental and extreme beers, i have to tip the cap to this, but now that they have demonstrated its possible, they can go back to making objectively better beer. what a weird thing this series is. all of them taste great, but these textures just dont work for beer, especially this one, straight up jelly from the can. not sure if i liked or disliked this overall, but it was certainly an experience...
