Thanks to mhksuccess for sharing this at dabaloons' tasting.

2013 vintage.

Pours a hazy light orange-red with a foamy off-white head that fades to nothing. No lacing on the drink down. Smell is sour with malt, cherry, acidic, and wood aromas. Taste is much the same with sour malt, cherry, and acidic flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a tasty sour cherry presence.

22oz, 2013 release
Hill Farmstead glass

As another reviewer mentioned, this wax is a bear. I almost cut my hand off removing it.

A: Pours a pale light blush hued golden color. It's fairly clear, despite a little haze. Initially a little fizzle of bright white head. Turns into nothing but a collar.

S: Funk. Wet hay. Bandaid. Tart cherry is there but light. Smells acidic. Getting that wheat smell.

T: Very sour beer. Tart cherry right up front. Puckers the mouth. Again, lots of funk and oaky tannic flavors. Taste the wheat. Very dry. Salivating as soon a sip concludes. Sort of one note, sour bomb, but I like it.

M: Lighter side of medium. Prickly carbonation.

You'll need a blow torch and a crowbar to get the wax top of this bottle. After opening poured a reddish orange haze, little head with a smoky-fruit-tart nose. Taste was tart and smooth with a little bit of smokiness in there that reminded me of bbq? The cherry flavor is subtle and not overbearing.
