Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. Yellow pour with a white head. The aroma is full of some strong strawberry notes. Smells almost exactly like strawberry cheesecake. The flavor is also very similar to strawberry cheesecake. I get some strawberry notes as well as some biscuit and a medium level of tartness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Delicious. Super pumped I got to try this one.

Thanks to tastybeer for splitting this with b3shine and myself. A nice sour is very balanced and a great way to kick off an evening. If there are still bottles of the first two in the wild I would love to try them.
Aroma / Appearance - The body has a nice golden hue. A crisp clean white head and sheer legs provide nice contrast. Lemon, starch, and crisp cool weather smell like a late summer harvest. Earthy and dry as a good champagne this has a great balance.
Flavor / Palate - A delicate mix of strawberries and melons is a tart fruit salad. The simpleness of the sour base hangs in the throat. This is more like a berliner weiss than a full on intense sour. That makes it easy to finish regardless of whether you have one or three people to split the bottle.

UPDATED: SEP 8, 2014 Bottle: Thanks, Doug! Murky, amber-yellow with full opacity and a thin, wispy & bone white foam. Aroma is different and delicious; tons of sweet strawberries, candy-like and reminiscent of Pez. Sweet and lightly tart with a faint touch of lemon juice and tangerine tang on the back; mildly acidic smelling. The taste is superb, and oranges (nectarines) come out full-blast on the palate. Tangy nectarines, acidic sourness, lacto yeast, mild strawberry candy notes, sweeter in the finish but tart all the way through. Puckering, dry finish. Great beer, possibly my favorite of the Almanac sour series so far.

Bottle to glass. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a thin fizzy white head. Aroma is quite tart, with mostly acetic acid and some faint citrusy fruit notes. Flavor is also quite sour, with some faint fruity sweetness showing up in the finish. Light in body with a fizzy mouthfeel and lingering tartness. Excellent beer. I’m definitely a sucker for sours.
