I think I have not had enough sour's to really appreciate them - or this beer just really was that bad.

This was pretty close to a Goze than a Berliner Weissbier by my taste. Generally, it was way too tart and sour for my liking. But still an interesting beer to try, especially if you like sours.

Extremely tart. Way outside of the realm that I would expect from this style of beer.

I'm not a huge sour fan. But this beer wasn't terrible.

22 oz bottle into a goblet.

A: Pours a clear golden color. The head is about a finger high, with a white shade. Retention flat-out sucks, and there isn't much lacing left on the glass. It looks like a flat, cheap lager basically.

S: I'm a bit surprised by the acetic presence here. Some notes of lacto and cheesy funk can be found, but given how tart it smells, it could pass for a decent sour ale at times. But it's not perfect - I'm not sure where this faint meaty presence is coming from. Still, though, a pleasant surprise coming from a Berliner.

T: Oh wow, that is tart! As expected, the tart attack is front loaded on the palate (primarily acetic/vinegary, but there's still some lacto in there). Once it fades, though, the flavor transforms into mostly diacetyl. Awww maaan. And really, this is all it brings - tartness and some lesser buttered popcorn. No subtle fruitiness, no perceptible wheat, no nothing. Even worse, it doesn't seem to integrate that well - if it did, I might just be singing its praises right now.

M: The feel is pretty rough/tannic, as expected from a sour. Because of the diacetyl, though, it doesn't really go down that easily. There's a lot of carbonation as well.

O: I'll give it credit - it's both sour AND cheap ($5/bomber). It just doesn't seem to have much balance, though. Sure, the sourness is nice, but it's devoid of the lesser subtleties that make sour ales great. Since it's so cheap for a sour, I still think it's worth trying if one needs a cheap tart fix.
