Poured from a can into a tulip glass. Murky orangish yellow color with nice initial head and little lacing. Pleasant tart fruit smell and taste. Tart cherries and berries, and a bit herbal. Pretty good sour.

16 oz can poured hazed golden, orange hue with two finger white foamy head.

Nose is tart cherries along with a collage of assorted tart fruits. Little berry types. Strawberry in the back also.

Mouth is tart, crisp, assorted tart berries, lemon, lime, a little pear on the finish.

Nice sour. Complex and can be picked apart alot further.

Pours a deep orange red with a finger of white head. Fades quickly. Hazy appearance, no clarity.

Nose is tartness, sweetness, stone fruit, strawberry. A bit muted.

Taste is more vibrant. Tart hits right away and fades quickly. Lingonberry comes through. It's tart and mildly bitter presence creates a nice counterpoint to the dominant sweetness. Having never had Cloudberry or Hawthorne berry, i cant attest to its inclusion or impact. Sharp strawberry and pear come in after initial tart impact. At the back end, a crackery malt rides to the finish.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. A quick bite of carbonation at the front doubles up with the tart to create a strong intro. It dissappears shortly after. I wish the carbonation had a little more liveliness. This brew is a little sticky for a sour. Lingering on the pallete for a while.

Overall a nice offering from Nightmare. I've been enjoying their brews. This one seems a little too busy though. Too many fruits involved. Not as characteristic and enjoyable as their Ling Chi, but good nonetheless.

A real cornucopia of tart red, yellow, pink & purple berries. Med sour. Intense tart fruit finishing grip. In between a full bodied, complex fruit bonanza.
Another line-drive home run that's out of the park before ya can round 1st. These Fuckin' guys are Golden!
