Despite what my auto captioning software tried to display (before I smartly edited it), this beer is not “poison berry” or “boys and berries” but rather it’s one of the more sour-stunted sour beers in all of Arizona.

An almost non-existent tartness is a welcoming gesture in this refreshingly fruity flagship beer from Helton Brewing Company in Phoenix.
