Had it at Funkatorium on tap in 2017. Wow...Rare Barrel and Funkatorium are my two top sour breweries. When I saw the collaboration I admit I was excited. The smell is the least impressive part of this beer, and it is still good. The aftertaste is incredible, the best sour aftertaste I have ever had. Top notch stuff.

10oz tulip on tap at The Rare Barrel. Reviewed from notes.

A: Served a slightly opaque glowing tangerine color with a thin white cap of foam.
S: Beautiful perfumey nose of complex fruit and earthy straw funk. Sweet smelling, slightly tart smelling. Hints of lime zest. Stone fruit noticeable.
T: Soft and very fruity combination of sweet nectarines and sweet plum meat mixed with lightly tart, very drying, and tannic notes of plum skins, fruit pits, and slight berry. There's a complex depth to the funk with an assertive lactic tartness, but also a rounded creamy fullness to the big profile. Sour citrus rind, maybe grapefruit, lingers in the finish along with some sweet fruity sugar.
M: Carbonation is very soft but very frothy and really foams up on my palate. Medium-full body, drying mouthfeel, with a sharp but quick bite of acidity mixed with gritty, clinging, tannins.
O: Fantastic; complex combination of fruit flavors they work very well together. Drinks extremely well.
