March 2014 bottling.

A: Cloudy golden pour with a good sized by very fizzy white head. Soda-like head really. Loudy and quickly fizzes out. Tiniest bit of lacing and zero head retention.

S: Smells like plums, a lot like plums. Then apricots after I read the label (of course). Tart, almost nose-curlingly so.

T: Oh yeah. Massively sour. Apricot mainly. Get some sour apple in the middle too. A little bit of wine barrel in the finish but the sour apricots really shine here. Lightly dry and very crisp finish with lots of lingering apricots.

M: Medium bodied, crisp and sour.

O: Man, I'm really starting to enjoy Almanac sours. Very sour but with a level of refreshing crispness that you don't find in too many other beers. Not super funky or barnyardy either. Just a straight up fruity sour with great balance and drinkability. Well done.

375 mL into a tulip. Pours a hazy straw w/ a thin white head.

Aroma is sweet, fruity, oaky, tart. A nice blend of contradictory, but complementary, aromas.

Taste is puckerlingly sour with an underlying fruity, berry sweetness. Nice dry oak presence.

Mouthfeel is light and crisp, refreshing.

Overall a really nice, drinkable sour.
