    Trader shows that Liquor Central in Delton, WI has it...not sure where that is in relation to you.

    Going to be honest, I've seen a lot of positive responses to this beer but dropped $18 on a bottle and it tasted off. Overly tart with an unpleasant metallic note. Maybe I am crazy.

    Can't vouch for the bottles, but I had it on draft last week at the brewpub and enjoyed it. I agree that it has a strong sourness, but not an overly lactic taste like some sours (Destihl). It has a lot of pear fruit flavor, very much like a pear sweet tart. Not one I would age, as I think the fruit dying off would just leave the sour and make it less appealing.

    Had it at the FFF Brewpub yesterday. Very very sour but very very good. You could taste the pear coming through but I thought it was a tad too sweet. My only reference to compare is Russian River Consecration and Temptation. I put them both above this but this beer is still very good.

    I know where there's a bunch of this but trying to cut back on super expensive beer and $18.99 for a bomber falls into that category for me.

    Consumer Beverage in Hales Corners had some as of a couple of weeks ago. They didn't have too many bottles left when I was there so I'm assuming it's gone. Didn't see any at Discount liquor, they had just received a new shipment of FFF beer a couple of weeks ago too.

    Ask someone in Whole Foods Milwaukee. They have a couple cases in the back.

    Just finished a pour of this and it was incredible. Tasted like a lemon warhead candy. So good.

    I saw it down at Antioch Wine last Saturday, but passed due to the price. Not big on sours
