On-tap at Hermann's in Plymouth.

Had this a few days ago and was intrigued by the idea of a light sour. I came to the conclusion that this beer both smells and somewhat tastes like a combination of Shock Tarts and SweeTarts. It's truly bizarre, but not a bad thing. This beer isn't super sour, but it does have a nice twang. The aroma at first has a muskiness/funk to it, but it develops the Shock Tarts/SweeTarts smell and flavor as it warms up a tick. The mouth feel is light, but not as light as I would expect, given its ABV.

I enjoyed this one, but I can see why many would dislike it. I wasn't a big fan of it at first, but it grew on me with every sip. Give it a whirl.

A nice clean look. Smell and taste are both simple, tame but very enjoyable and sessionable. Feel is the only real weak point with it being a bit too thin and watery. This would be awesome in a 6 pack.
