Hold on, I’ll put the kettle on, it’s sour time! Sour number, like, 50 something. I might kind of enjoy this style? Kind of like how I enjoy air and sustenance, sour is life, and life can be oh-so-sour. Or maybe I’m just sour…
I can’t help but say ‘Russell’ without saying it in a faux-Indian accent à la Russell Peters. See, I love playing with fake accents. I can do a pretty killer faux east Indian, Cantonese, Mandarin, Jamaican, and a handful of others. If you’ve never tried it, I highly recommend it. Just be careful where you practice them, because y’know, accidental racism.
Seriously, it’s fun. I think I can probably use my powers to mess with people on the phone, acting like multiple people in a call center or something. The ultimate goal will be to be able to subtly shift from one accent, to a completely different accent, slowly over the course of a conversation. How much of a mindfuck would that be? “A moment ago I was sure this guy was Australian, but now he sounds Iranian..”. I would die happy. Lonely, alone, but happy about audibly fucking someone’s brain up that one time.
The label is pretty lackluster. Needs work. See me after class.
The pour is a slightly hazy golden amber with a half finger of fizzy bubbles that fizzled out quickly, leaving a small collar and flecks of lacing.
The smells are big lactobacillus, banana candies, pineapple, melons and a sweet doughy overture. Smells fantastic! Quite delicate aroma overall. Sweet and mellow.
The tastes are stone fruits, lemon tarts, watermelon, pineapple, basement musk, and a sweet dough like a glazed doughnut. Has a slight lactobacillus ring to it, overall this is probably the mildest sour I’ve ever tried. Really tasty!
The mouthfeel is mid-bodied and crisp with a slight sticky finish. Light tickling carbonation. Flavors spike around the back of the palate and leave a nice glowing melony aftertaste.
4/5 That’s a great sour! A menage of melons with a good doughy balance, musky ‘je ne sais quoi’ and slight sour tint. I’ll get this again! Recommended for sour curmudgeons and maybe cider fans? Great beer.
