A label resembling a Hammer Horror movie poster aptly introduces this Berliner style wheat beer that pours a vivid, almost toxic looking pink/red colour with no head that looks like it wouldn't be out of place in Frankenstein's lab.
A inviting, sweetish raspberry aroma belies the intense sour hit you get when taking your first sip. I really can't emphasis enough how sour that first hit is! Almost as suddenly as it comes on however the sourness eases to reveal a tart, sour raspberry taste that is really rather pleasant. This almost schizophrenic beer then finishes with a juicy, tart lemon bite.
"Sour by the minute but you're sweeter by the hour." Bands Of Skulls front man Russell Marsden belts out on Sweet Sour and I think that line sums up Dr Caligari perfectly.
