Not sure if the flavor changed with age but this was light, lightly fruity, definitely strong nectarine flavors but for me the chamomile was almost overwhelming. Doesn't match at all with previous logs so this was either the beer changing in the bottle or my taste buds were killed by the gone-bad crowler I previously had.

It's not a sour, it's a fruited golden ale, strong nectarine flavor, very strong wood character, little bit of funk from the wine. Brandy-like. Chamomile is a mellow, herbal hint. It's super yummy.
