This beer is as fun as its label. The aroma is slightly acetic on top of more pleasant things. The taste is a mix of Sweet Tarts candy, a hint of honey, and more beerlike things I can't find the right words for. Normally beers that taste like candy are offputting, but this one does it well, presumably because of the tart component. If this were an image in Photoshop, someone would have cranked up the saturation slider. The flavors are very rich and magnified. I like the post-tart feeling it leaves on my tongue. I was surprised to learn that this was only 3%. It feels more substantial and robust than that. Where is that viscosity coming from? I don't know but it adds to the nice mix of things.

12oz can poured into a pint glass
A: Yellow with a one-finger head that quickly settles
S: A nice tartness, lemon, a bit of stone fruit
T: Lemon, lemonade (a bit sweet), sweet bread, apple and grapes/vinegar
M: Light-bodied, crisp, a bit of an acidic bite
O: Tone the sweetness down and this would be awesome. As is it's crisp, refreshing and would be a great session beer on a hot day

12oz Can

A — Pours a lemony and hazy yellowish hue into the glass. There is somewhat of a white head initially, but it of course fades to a thin layer of nothingness.

S — Smell is lightly tart and acidic, with an oddly acrid nuttiness as well, almost notes of Amaretto on top of some limey and tart sour notes.

T — Much like the nose, very mild overall with just hints of lemon and lemon, and an overtone of nuttiness and semi-sweet malts.

M — Thin and light bodied, easy going enough.

O — Fine overall, a nice light sour, funky indeed.

Had a few times before, but first time trying it out of the can. Smells of intensely lemon sourdough. Feels very fizzing in mouth with absolutely no booziness. Very light beer. Could drink a case and still go out of dinner. First taste of extreme sourness, then transitions into that good bready finish. Leaves one of the best aftertastes of any sour I've tried. Has to be one of the most refreshing beers to drink. I've been waiting Blue Tarp to can this beer for some time now, and very pleased to be able to drink it whenever I please.

An interesting Berliner Weisse. Immediate lemon on the nose, tart lemon taste with a strong sourdough bread flavor. A very interesting brew, low alcohol so it's sessionable. Refreshing as well. Kind of had a gritty mouthfeel at times, but nonetheless a solid offering.

Drank a half pint at the brewery. Beautiful head, very light color.
Not much smell.
Light, tart taste. Very refreshing and very delicious.

I am no expert by any means. Basically, if I like the taste then I'm sold so that being said I tend to like ales better. This beer had a smooth taste, not too overpowering. It was my favorite of the beers we tried there. That being said, it was good on tap. I don't know how I'd feel if they started canning or bottling. Some beers are great on tap but bad in bottle so there ya go!
