Appears a murky dark amber with a fluffy head of off-white that slowly fades into a gentle cap. Scattered bits of lacing are left around the glass.
Smell is of pedioccocus up front with hints of cilantro, vanilla, mixed berries, and lemongrass.
Taste is of the aromas with a citrusy key lime standout atop tart berries, yogurt, and vanilla custard.
Mouthfeel is medium-full bodied with a sweet tart pucker that is sweet up front and a tart, dry finish. Pretty balanced for a sour. Nothing out of control in this one.

2013 vintage Bottle from Food and Friends in Philly.
Pours a crystal clear reddish brown with a decent sized tan head that slowly dissipates to a cap on top. Funk and oak permeate from the glass as soon as the cap gets cracked. Vanilla, lemons, sour cherries, brown sugar, and a hint of balsamic round out the nose nicely. The flavor is tart lemony acid. There's a brief sugary sweetness up front that quickly gets swallowed by lemons tart cherries mouth puckering lactic and carbonic acid abounds. The finish is fairly dry with a sharp lingering tartness. Very little of the oak or brett funk survives into the flavor. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a tart sharp mouthfeel. This smells wonderful but the taste is bracingly tart. I enjoyed it like munching on sour patch kids, but on the plus side I forgot how hot it was while I was drinking this.
