Huge thank you to mrbubbler for this treat!
Appearance. Pours a hazy, deep burnt orange/amber with a finger of amber tinted cream coloured head.
Smell. Cherries and green apples. funky old barrel, lactic sourness and vinegar, and a bit of caramel. Nice.
Taste. Sour cherry, funky brett and dank old wood, apples and melons, and a touch of vinegar and caramel.
Mouthfeel. Fairly light body (maybe a little watery even), medium-low fine carbonation.
Overall. A very nice sour that has everything you could could ask for in the style.

Thanks to Axic10 for securing this bottle for me.
$18-20 for the 750mL, poured into a minisnifter
ABV not indicated on the bottle
[A] Not much of a head on the pour - less than a quarter finger. Light to medium tan, foamy and quick to fizz out. Retention is short lived and neither a collar or film was ever much of a consideration. The body comes across somewhere in between maroon and burgundy. Very still looking. No lacing.
[S] Intoxicatingly bright fruit aromas. Cherry dominates followed by a nice backing of raspberry, light oak and a mild vinous quality. Fantastic. At its deepest layer, and only at warmer temperatures, a hint of rubber cement pokes through, but it is barely noticeable and hardly interferes with the nose.
[T] Cherry, raspberry, black berry and currants - definitely fruit forward. Ample acidity with great lactic flavor. Whatever yeast strain was used, it was a good choice. This beer is about as quaffable as it gets.
[M] Semi-aggressive mouthfeel with mild sourness, generous acidity and the perfect level of effervescence. Medium-full body.
[O] Honestly, this beer is fantastic and has earned every bit of the high score that it's received. Drinking exceptionally well right now.

Picked this up at the idiots drool release. "Batch 2" it says on the bottleneck.
A- Tan, extremely bubbly head rises up from the pour. It settles down rather quickly to a thin ring onto a murky violet color. Carbination is evident throughout the glass with small bubbles rushing to the top.
S- Definite pinot noir effect here. Oak is detected from the barrel. There is a big whiff of grapes, and some wine. Smells a lot like a flanders red.
T- Strong grape tannins hit the palatte hard, followed by a sharp vinegarrette acidity. Midway through you can feel the oak creep in. The flavor does round off with enough pale malt to remind this is beer. Nice and tart, turning fairly sour here.
M- Light bodied with high carbonation. Highly drinkable.
O- I thoroughly enjoyed this. I got three bottles of this and tried one relatively soon after I bought it. It was more malty, and less sour then. This is progressively getting more sour in my opinion, and should only get better with age. Anyone who held on to their bottles is in for a treat. Not afraid to let the other one sit for another year. Weyerbacher please make this again!!
