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.

Poured from a 750mL bottle into a snifter. Purchased at Yankee Spirits in Attleboro. Bottled 8/6/15

Pours a pink-lemonade maroon body with a fizzy and fleeting white head that reduces quickly to leave no retention or lacing.

Aromas are lactic and tart, light strawberry and other berry aromas, slight plastic off-note.

On the tongue it's pretty sour - lactic acid, heavy lemon juice, and tart fruit skins, light berries, with a dry lactic aftertaste. Light, refreshing body, medium-high carbonation.

Would have preferred a little more fruit to balance out the sourness,but overall it's refreshing.

Freshly poured, it looks like a beautiful, creamy, fizzy strawberry lemonade though head fades fast. Aroma is moderate sourdough with mild fruitiness. Taste is luscious! Juicy with a well balanced, crisp tartness. Very pleasing. Rather creamy for the style which is very welcoming. I could drink this all day long at that abv and I'd me more than willing

Poured from a bomber (bottled mid-August) into a tulip glass on a fine breezy autumn afternoon.

L: This is a pinup of a beer. It looks like an adult pink lemonade, with a soft ruby blush that would shame your mother. There is a nice white head.

S: a surprising lack of strawberries when considering the color of this bad boy. There's some wheat in evidence here, but not much else.

T: OK. Not what I was expecting. That nice white head kind of assaulted me. First off, more like white foam than head -- it dissipated immediately upon touching my lips, and was filled with a sour medicinal flavor. The beer itself has strawberries and kiwis, sure, but I had to search them out. Most of what I got was an out of whack sourness, almost like a spoiled dairy product. I'm not sure what bacterial cultures were used here, but they overtook the entirety of the beer. Beyond the sourness I got a thin honeyed wheat.

F: Felt like this bottle was injected with a sodastream before being capped. So carbonated it made my eyes water, and coupled with the aggressive sourness it almost made me cry.

O: shocked by how unbalanced this beer was. Maybe I had a bad bottle?
