Pours hazy, orange-red in color with minimal head. Taste is strawberry, kiwi, light citrus, with sour mix. Sour and perhaps a touch salty but not overly so. Just a beautiful sessionable fruity beer that still tastes like beer. One of the better beers in the state. I will get this again.

Pours a beautiful, pinkish-orange color with a nice fluffy white head.

The aroma has plenty of notes of strawberry mixed with sour vinegar. Get some notes of green apple as well.

The taste, like the nose, is very tart. With a very floral, lemony flavor taking shape. Some sweeter notes of melon and strawberry are subtly included in the back end.

The feel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation. The tart flavors are hard to shake off as they linger throughout each and every sip.

Overall, a very solid beer. Not much else to say. It looks pretty, and whilst I enjoy the tart, robust flavors it seems a bit much for a beer with just 5.00 ABV. I expected something much lighter and more palatable. Still, a good beer, and one worth drinking again.

Hazy orange, hint of pink in it, honestly it's really not very pretty. Sour and a tad on the acidicside, I like both these things so I love this beer. A little on the dry side, but the tartness is awesome, it's refreshing that beers like this exists..

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.
