I thought this beer deserved a 5, but it seems 5's are rare here and that would likely devalue my opinion.

I had this beer 3 months ago and I remember it like it was yesterday. I had never heard of dry hopped sours before this, but it instantly became my favorite beer of all time. I went back to Wicked Weed from GA hoping to buy several more, only to find out it is no longer in production. If it comes back I will be buying several.

If you see this beer and have even the slightest appreciation of sours, buy it.
