2013 bottle

Short brown head erupted quickly and dissipated as quickly as it came, leaving a placid, cloudy reddish brown glass.

Wow, no doubting its sourness on the nose. That acquired vinegary delicious funk. Almost like bleu cheese just before it hits your lips.

Oh my god. So good. Just a great blend of sour with a sweet fruit back and funky bite. Every sip makes me want to take another.

Incredibly smooth and easy drinking for a sour. Has that astringent bite and finishes clean.

Not quite as good, but in the same ballpark as the Russian River sours and my favorite of the Lips of Faith series, Eric's Ale. Will definitely have this again.
