Hazy brown color with an effervescent head, which rightfully disappears quickly.
Yeast, fruit, oak and spice on the nose.
Sourness is nearly puckering and sharp; seems a bit immature, whereas I would imagine that with age, would become a much rounder flavor profile. I have to say that I might prefer this (like my women) young, tart and a bit immature.... however I'd also like to cellar a bottle for a time to see how/if she blossoms with age. lol

Pours a clear medium brown, tinted red, with two fingers thick dense offwhite head, settles with a spray of delicate lace on the glass. Smell: hay with light barnyard funk, acetic, vinous, oaky with substantial herbal and vanilla pops, melon. Taste: melon, cherry juice, acetic, red grape skin, herbal and oaky. A lot of oak in this one. Good but relatively pricey for what you get.
Batch #17 2013 Bottle 1532.

Split with Goblinmunkey7

A: Medium to deep purple, brown up close - an interesting hue with some browns - pours with a small, off-white head, fades to virtually nothing but leaves a few streaks

S: Somewhat light rather than pungent - some light sourness and tart notes, with some barrel and dark fruits - cherries - musty wood with some general woody mustiness - damp, earthy, old cellar - some yeasty aromas

T: Old, ripe funk - lightly unpleasant at first, but it grows on you - straight-up bacterial weirdness with mostly lactic notes - very wet, damp sourness - lightly tart - some old, musty barrel - an overall flavor of dark fruits, with some stone fruits and old cherries - cherry flesh - funkiness seems to build as it gets warm and the general watery character subsides

M: Light to medium, minimal carbonation, smooth - oddly watery, as if this was overly old, but this bottle is not that old (or oxidized)

O: If this is the "Sour Version," I may be more interested in the "Very Sour Version"

This is weird, but perhaps not as weird as I expected. There are some nice sour and funky notes here, but it also tastes simultaneously too old and too young. Maybe this was not the best year. I might try this again.
