This is a great sour beer. Hats off to victory. If you are not use to a sour beer you need to remember when drinking it to try not to compare it to a traditional style beer. However, this beer is refreshing and lite with a big sour finish on the end. Cheers!

I'm no sour expert, but I like the style and will seek it out. This is the best I've had.

Almost concerned that I won't find a better beer than this. I absolutely love this beer. It is not fruity. Has a good abv kick. It's very sour but not cringeworthy.

Loved it... drank the bomber alone which is usually tough for me with most sours.

Yum. Can't believe how high the apv is. Similar taste and feel as a gose, with lemony, somewhat salty flavor. Sweet tart-ish but in such a good way, don't be afraid! Not too sweet at all. Sour, yes. I've had this many times on tap and in bottle, and it consistently pleases. Maybe stick to one so you're not off the wall. Great choice for starting the night.
