Pour is hazed golden amber with a tight fizzy white head. Nose is plastic, lemon, faint grain, and a hint of strawberry. Taste doesn't have the plastic, a bit sweet, no grain. Strawberry, faint kiwi. Light body, decent carb, very dry finish.

my bottle says 3.3, not 5. was pretty stoked see this at the grand trunk in newburyport. a rad little store btw.
anyways.
L- Its pink! looks like some variety of snapple. The head fizzles away quicker than any of ever seen and is actually pretty cool to watch. im not sure it really looks good, but its interesting and like kinda cool i guess.

S-welp, smells like strawberry kiwi juice blended with unsweetened lemonade. again, more interesting than good.

T- Like drinking unsweetened lemonade. too tart for its size. minimal fruit is noticeable underneath the sour. as your mouth adjusts the hibiscus shows up and is fairly overpowering. like, lemons cost 50 cents, and i can pick flowers fo free, so why would i spend 12 bucks on a beer that tastes just like a blend of the 2?

F- tart ass water. lemon juice.

O- i feel like they either need to bump the abv as well as fruit to support the amount of sour, or just keep it 3 and tone it the fuck down. sour and flowers leave the fruit in the dust and really dont mix well with each other. its sour, and its interesting but at the end of the day i just dont enjoy drinking it. which really is the point of a beer. even as a thirst quencher id snag a water or slug the shit out of some gansette for like a buck a beer. good sours are some of my favorite beers, but sometimes i think people over analyze them to the point they forget its purpose is to be an enjoyable drink and not just something sour. like being sour doesnt equal being good. i kinda hate this beer.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Batch 7, bottled 7/2/13.

Appearance - Bright pinkish red. Beautiful color. Pink head. Settles out quickly.

Smell - Very lactic. Kinda funky. A little fruity. Harsh acidic aroma. Strawberry comes out a little, but not super distinct.

Taste - Much fruitier. Strawberry comes into play more, but I think I'd peg it as a raspberry without the aroma. Again, it's got a harsh sourness. Musty.

Mouthfeel - Very tart. Medium carbonation.

Overall - I don't love the sourness in this. Kinda weird. Decent fruit though.

Tooth-meltingly sour, this one looks like a treasure in the glass, a delightful pink hue, but it's downhill from there. Nose is sour, acidic, with a touch of something akin to vomit. Palate is, as noted, sour to high hell, with very little grain presence. The strawberry and kiwi almost/sort-of pop up in the finish, and you wish they'd come out to play sooner to balance out that searing sourness. A fine beer for those who like their beers to strip away laquer, but I dare say something seems a touch off with this one.
