4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pour is a nice hazy peach color (how appropriate) with a nearly non existent bubbly white head. Lots of funky notes on the nose, lactic sourness, bright apple and peach notes, tart berries, some other citrus, and just a subtle hint of oak. Taste is absolutely stunning. Nice wine like lactic acid, subtle funkiness, bright citrus flavors, light oak flavor, wonderful peach flavor throughout, and insanely refreshing. My favorite Almanac yet.

4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Golden peach color and nice thin white head. Smell of dry white wine and peaches. Flavor of tart peaches and a dry cognac finish. Peaches do not kill it, they are present which adds to overall experience and dimension with the oak brandy and wine characters. Excellent.

Excellent. Big peach and brandy nose. Some slight oak but only adds does not distract. Flavor of peach and very light oak. The flavors of all the tart and oak and peach are so well balanced.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
375ml bottle. Clear golden shade. Finger of white head. Aroma is mostly the effects of the barrel, with woodiness coming to the fore. Taste only carries a hint of peach, but the tart, puckering acidity is really nice. Don’t think the idea totally came together but a very nice sour anyway.

Poured from a 375ml bottle. The aroma is peaches, woody, acidic. The flavor is peachy, woody, rich grape character. This is one of the better Almanac sours that I have had. Solid beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
375 ml bottle shared with Tmoney99 and the Fifty West guys. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have tart peaches, some acidity, the brandy is fairly mild but does contribute some sweetness, some funk, some musty character, light wood, I like the beer but didn’t think that it was overly complex.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home. Pours clear golden yellow, small head that dissapears quickly. Aroma is slight peach and soft lactic yoghurt, and peach candy. Light body with a decent amount of acid freshness, nice tart peach that increases when the sediment are in the glass as well, kind of strong punchy citrus kick in the end as well, giving it a dry thirstquenching finish. Taste is light peach & apricot, yoghurt... Aftertaste is rather nice as there is some more apricot hanging around. Nice beer, but after having tasted this one and the Pluot, I don’t understand the fuzz frankly...
