4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A- Pours a clear peachy hue with a 1 finger, frothy head that hang around for a long while.
S- Tart, lemon rind, mango
T- Lemon, white wine, strawberry, cherry, orange, wheat, very tart, some residual sweetness, lingering notes of light fruit.
M- Medium bodied with ample carbonation.
D- Awesome beer that may be my favorite from almanac. Slight sweet fruit flavors complement the intense sourness well. Overall a very complex yet drinkable beer.

Bouteille embouteillée en février 2013 et partagée par SlovakSniper. Merci. Une robe jaune qui ne mousse pas. Un nez de citron, de blé, de bois, citronnade à la lime, des pêches et du jus de lime. Une bouche sèche, piquante, du blanc d’agrume (âcre). Une texture avec une forte expansion en bouche.

Another knock out, ive had it a coyole times. I got one bottle that had like half sediment in it, chunks of fruit i could actually distinguish, it was awesome and actually chunky on the palate, had to literally chew it. Also had one on draft and it was crisp clear, equally as tasty.

Bottle. Pours a very delicate cloudy straw yellow in the top and orange’ish in bottom. Minimal white head. Some sediment. Aroma is lactic sour and fruity, certainly lot of apricots and a little hint of apple. Some vanilla and slight wood. Taste really sour and with long lactic sour finish. All the time complimented by the sweet apricots. Light body and slight dry. Opens at it warms a little. Very well hidden alcohol.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Slightly hazy, bright golden body with a white head that quickly traverses to a collar. As with many of these Almanac sours, big vinous white grape aroma, lightly tannic & tart with just a hint of vinegar. Lemons, apricots, peaches & citrus on the nose with a touch of musty wood & drying oak. Apricot asserts itself on the palate first. Sour peach, prickly tannins, & a sour punch of lacto infested wood. White grape shows up more towards the back-end with a mixed finish of apricot & Pinot. Drying mouth feel, sharp & crisp, faint acidity. Really enjoyed this one. Nice mix of apricot, peach, & wine-like characteristics.
