Swimsum brought this over to our place as part of an epic tasting on Saturday. Thanks Brent! Following review based on notes taken at that time.
4oz. sample poured into a snifter.
Appearance: Body is very hazy and goldenrod in color. A fine white film sits on top and retains well. No lacing.
Smell: Slightly under-ripe banana, sweet cream, lemon meringue, and vanilla. Smooth and mellow; doesn't exhibit any sour or vinegary aromas. Odd, but certainly pleasant.
Taste: Sourness is bold, but not palate-wrecking, allowing subtler flavors to shine through quite well. Lemon meringue, banana cream, and citric acid all play large roles. Very balanced and enjoyable. Would give it a 4.75 if I could.
Mouthfeel: Moderately carbonated, medium-to-light in body, and surprisingly easy for a sour.
Overall: Balanced across the board, complex, and just fucking good. I can understand why this is such a highly sought after sour. Thanks again Brent!

This beer is amazing. The appearance was golden and brite, slight orange, crisp with very little head only brief lacing that didnt linger at all. Carb bubbles were present throughout.
The smell was sweet & sour with a good funk, slight notes of tart apple and pear. I thought after smelling that this was going to disappoint honestly.
The taste though, wow. Tart apple, granny smith, bright farmyard funk, the taste lingered as well and was slight bile lemon and finished with sweet spice notes and some orange grapefruity effervescence. This taste for me was perfection. Even as I cherished the last couple sips that had warmed it was even more complex with some malt, bread, salt and dank balanced funk. So good, better on the cold side but I cherished it all through the pour...
The mouth was crisp and dry, the tart wets the cheeks afterwards and it lingered in a good way
I really was close to a 5 on this beer, its definitely in my top 5 and left me craving desperately for another
