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.

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.
