They actually finally made it a couple years ago (after leaving it on the board for years), sadly never bottled: http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/russian...nation/101493/

I chilled and opened a bottle from this batch, it's been 2 months since bottling. First thing I noticed is chill haze...bottles are clear when warm. Maybe a protein rest is needed next time? Carbonation is a little less than the 3.5 volumes I wanted. I'm guessing the residual CO2 was less due to the extended aging than what beersmith uses for default. Flavor is complex sour/tart but there is a sulfur component that is distracting. As Ryan_PA and Oldsock mentioned earlier, this is apparently common in pale sours and disappears with time. One to maybe 4 more months in the bottle should help clear it up I hope?

The sulfur is gone and if the bottle is chilled for at least a week prior to opening, the chill haze falls. It's really an awesome beer, wish I did a double batch of it.
