I love that DFH experiments with different ingredients when they brew their beers. Some make the beer awesome, some don't. This beer was a little of a miss for me. A cross between a pale ale and a sour. I guess I wasn't expecting it to be so tart. If you're looking for something different and you like sour beers then I would suggest it.
