It is a bright red color with a small head. It smells of fruit for certain. The fruits are the very dominant on the nose. Taste-wise, the fruits are counterbalanced by some level of funk. It is not a very sour beer, but sourness is there. It is bubbly and medium thick. Overall, this beer really taste and looks like a watermelon jollyrancher.

12oz can into a tulip.

A: Pours a slightly hazy grapefruit-pink/orange with 3/4" loose white head that dissipates quickly. Lacing and retention are basically nonexistent.

S: Watermelon and some floral notes are strongest, with just a bit of bready malt underneath. It's low-key and all but disappears when the head goes down.

T: Both watermelon and dragonfruit are present right up front. Mid palate brings watermelon more into the foreground along with some very mild lacto tartness. Finishes slightly sweet and tart with berry-like notes until leaving an oddly seltzer-ish aftertaste.

M: Crisp, with a secretly semi-substantial malt body offset by the above-average carb. Seems about right in the context of what I guess WW was going for here. Doesn't really drink like a Berliner, though.

O: Not especially sour, but basically well-conceived. Tastes a bit like 21A Hell or High Watermelon but with more carb and a stronger nod toward tartness. Not sure what my expectations were, but I feel a bit underwhelmed anyway...it's doesn't really taste or feel like any Berliner that I've had - but still works okay for what it is.

Pours the color of watermelon juice left over when you cut one up. Smells fruity in a kind of muted way. Tastes like sour watermelon with a hint of alcohol coming through. Mouthfeel and aftertaste are mostly sweet, with sour hitting the back of the tongue and the throat. Not overly familiar with the sour genre, but it is obvious that Wicked Weed's reputation in this area is well deserved. Outstanding brew.

Absolutely the worst sour I've ever tasted. It doesn't taste like a sour at all. It hardly tastes like beer. It tastes like they took a lager and dropped some dragonfruit flavor and then burned it.

Pours a light pink, not much in the way of any head. Smells of faintly freshly cut watermelon, sour apples. Taste follows very watermelon notes, they’re bright and refreshing; slightly tart, definitely get the dragonfruit on the finish. If you’re a big fan of dragonfruit like I am you’ll appreciate it. Drinks almost like one of those spiked seltzers to be honest. Super refreshing and under 5% it’s a great summer beer. I will probably grab some as long as it is still warm out.

Worth a try if you’re looking for something light and fruity.
