I bought this beer from a liquor store in Sacramento last summer. It sat in my fridge for months. Decided it was a special occasion(Detroit Tigers vs Oakland A's playoff game 2) . I had forgotten what kind of beer this even was. I was very surprised to find it was a sour type beer. It smelled awesome. I can't even describe it. Then the taste....just awesome. Nice and bubbly.
