Tasting this sour ale, the tartness walks right up to the line, but never crosses into excessive sourness. The hop bite intercepts you right before the line, and you're left with a delightful, light and well-blended champagne taste. Really well done!

4.5/5  rDev +3.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 750mL bottle into a Teku glass. Bottled November 2017.
3.75/4.25/4.75/4.5/4.5
A: Very pale straw, lightly hazy, mostly transparent, with brief head and persistent effervescence.
S: Smells lactic, fruity, and pleasant. Hint of fruit or bubblegum, but mostly sour.
T: Fruity bubblegum indeed! The very initial taste is crisp grain and acid, but then WHAMMO! outta nowhere comes this amazingly powerful wave of fruit like a starburst. It's tart, yes, but juicy, delectable, and deep. Green apple? Balsamic strawberries. This excellent maintaste is lamentably brief, and the aftertaste is a mere echo of what came mere moments before.
M: Light, refreshing, moreish, and spritely. If you don't mind a touch of funk and grain in your champagne, you're all set.
O: Grimm continues to outperform nearly every brewery in this megalopolis. An outstanding and interesting "mostly sour" isn't so aggressively strange to put off a newcomer, but has enough deep (or maybe I just love Mosaic hops) to engage the most jaded drinkers.
