12oz can into a pils glass.

Pours murky dull gold with a head that fades completely.

Very faint aroma of lime and pineapple

Sour, tart, fruity and a bit of salt to balance it out

Aggressive carbo bite, but light and puckering otherwise

This is a very good example of what a sour should be. I had it first on tap at 7 Monks in Traverse City, MI in August 2022. Thankfully, it was also available at a local liquor store, The Beverage Center, Traverse City, MI. I'm looking forward to visiting this Christmas/New Years holiday. I hope I can find it again. Typically, sours are only available in the summertime but, I think that they're growing in popularity. So far, where I live (Savannah, GA) I'm still finding them at bars, grocery and liquor stores. Yay!

Got this on tap at 7 monks taproom in GR.
L - Pours a golden champagne color, with a thin white head and small amounts of lacing.
S - Smells of pineapples, honey, apple peels, and malts
T - Sweet and tropical, finishes with a sour flair
F - Super drinkable. Refreshing. Medium-light body with very little carbonation.
O - Very interesting and very good.

From a 12 oz. can dated 07/27/2021. Sampled Feb 27, 2022.

The appearance is a slightly cloudy olive-yellow color with a short-lived fizzy white head. Fades out.

The fruity aromas are forward and they make me think of cherries and berries. A lower profile breadiness.

Light mouthfeel.

The flavor is fruity and mildly tart. More approachable than some sours but that could be due to how old this can was.

Purchased on-tap from The Blue Door for $6. Poured into a tulip glass. This review was written earlier today, but I'm just now posting it.

L - Hazy goldenrod with a one-finger, quick-to-fade pale white head.
S - Generic stone fruit notes, apple peels, and sugary acidity.
T - Sour, for sure! Lemon-lime soda, green apple. strong wheat finish. Definitely on the sweeter side throughout.
F - Super drinkable. Refreshing. Medium-light body with very little carbonation. Sort of coats your mouth, but not in a bad way.
O - A refreshing brew for this warm, sunny afternoon. I'd get it again, but i wish there was a bit more complexity to it. Definite vibes of those big tubs of rainbow sherbet, but you sort of have to dig for it. I'd get it again.

It really taste like rainbow sherbet scooped into a dry ginger ale! It’s tasty, fruity, and crisp, with a hint of sour patch kids. I’d get it again even though it makes me thirsty for water.

Pours a hazy and pale straw color with a foamy white head which disappears very quickly. Aroma is that of a lemonade and the taste too of a sour lemonade. If you’ve had some mike’s hard lemonade this one a a more tart version in taste.
