Sippa Sippa Sour Beer!
A told B, and B told C, “I’ll meet you at the top of the coconut tree.”
“Wheee!” said D to E F G, “I’ll beat you to the top of the coconut tree.”
Sippa Sippa Sour Beer! It’s so light and clear! Here comes H up the coconut tree,
and I and J and drunken-ass K, all on their way up the coconut tree.
Sippa Sippa Sour Beer! It’s sour; should I fear? Look who’s coming! L M N O P!
And Q R S! And T U V! Still more – W! And X Y Z!
The whole alphabet up the – Oh, no! Sippa Sippa… SOUR! BEER!
Skit skat skoodle doot. Flip flop flee. Everybody drinking at the coconut tree.
Mamas and papas and uncles and aunts, hug their little dears, then dust their pants.
“Help us up,” cried A B C.
Next from the pileup blitzed-brained D and effed-up E and banged-up F. Then comes G all feeling like death.
H is tangled up with I. J and K are about to cry. L is knotted like a tie.
M is looped. N is lit. O is twisted alley-oop. Skit skat skoodle doot. Flip flop flee.
Look who’s coming! It’s hammered P, Q R S, and loose-cooch T. Then U V W covered in pee.
Last to come X Y Z. And the sun goes down on the coconut tree…
But – sippa sippa sour beer! Look, there’s a full moon.
A is out of bed, and this is what he said, “Dare double dare, you can’t out drink me.
Sippa sippa SOUR! BEER! Sippa sippa SOUR! BEER!
I’ll beat you to the top of the coconut tree.”
Sippa sippa SOUR! BEER!
Kent Falls Says:
Well, gee. Thanks guys. My bottle of Lemon Coconut Gose was really good, if a little bit lacking in the coconut. The sour was there. The lemon was definitely there. But any sort of tropical sweetness was sort of last in the blast of lemon zing.
Another weird thing here as the pour – immediate giant fluffy white head… Then, as I turned to put the bottle opener away, poof! It was gone. Like, in an instant. I’m not really one to care about such things, but the chemistry and physics behind what happened is sort of unique to this beer.
Lemon, coconut, salt, ethanol, fermented grain… makes for a rather unique little sour beer. Kent Falls is certainly good for them. Several of their other wild/sour/gose efforts top this one, but that’s not say this wasn’t good.
Just not the best.
