22 oz bottle 2014 version - Appearance is dark brown with amber highlights. A one finger head moves to an off white slightly creamy lace. Smell is of cherries, pears, green apple, cider, and bread. Taste is sour reminiscent of the nose, surprise, but there was a nice undercurrent of malt, vanilla bean and chocolate that helped balance it out. Picked up some wood/oak notes later on. Mouthfeel is interesting, below average carbonation, and it is not as crisp as other sours I have had. This one has more dense, creamy mouthfeel. Recommended, price is a little steep, but worth it.
