Poured from a 750ml bottle into a HF stemmed Tulip. Vintage 2011.

Appearance is murky amber with one finger of bubbly off-white head that left nice lacing. Smell is is baking spices. I get a bunch of apple pie and pumpkin pie, cinnamon and lemony citrus aromas. Taste is tart lemons and apples with much of the same baking spices. Mouthfeel is great. Body is medium/full with mild sourness and ample soft carbonation and no booze heat (10.9% ABV)!

Overall this is a great beer. Very unique sour beer that I liken to Ghouschip if I had to compare it to anything. I wish I saved this for thanksgiving to eat with some pie!
