Had this 2014 version. This beer tasted great, I'd still take duck duck over it, but man what a great beer. Great funk, great smell, great taste. I'd gladly drink this one over and over again

I've only had 2012 CC, but it was the best BA AWA I've had....absolutely extraordinary stuff...so complex and amazing. Layers of fruit and funk, but neither was overpowering.

Had at Toronado (SF) yesterday, served at perfect temperature.

L: clear, brownish dark yellow

S: predominantly fresh peach and apricot.

T: apricots and peaches up front, lemon tartness in the back

F: light to medium bodied

O: tasty, but expensive. Nice to try but won't buy again. Compared to other fruited sours, there are cheaper alternatives. $80/bottle to drink on-site.
