...I would try one for free but I sure wouldn't spend any of my own cash for some. I posted this elsewhere when I first encountered the product:
While browsing my local beer distro's selection, this product stuck out like a sore thumb dying for attention. Flashy photographic packaging w/plenty of keyword mania, snappy product & brewery names. As I read the carton, I noticed it was an "ultra premium lager sour mashed for character." All this added up to a red-flag pass on my part.
Initial BA and Ratebeer reviews are what I would expect by my initial impressions.
