Bottle. Pours hazy yellow with minimal head. Amazing peach and apricot aromas. So good itís almost fake. Taste is sour white peaches and apricots. Very tart and good balance. I canít believe how good this is.

Bottle. Less acidic than other Alpine sours that have come before. Apricots and peaches are front and center with a nice citrus peel tartness. Some vinous qualities along with some light oak. Long tart semi-dry finish. Very well done.

UPDATED: SEP 21, 2014 Bottle shared by Jake. Pours cloudy gold white head. Nose/taste of apricot, peach, white wine, funky wild yeast. So fresh! Medium body.

Bottle thanks jake. Hazy fruit juicy pour. Super tart apricots and peaches aromas and flavors. Drinkable but nicely tart and sour.

Another acetone-laced Alpine Sour. Sorry, but while the peach flavor in the front was a nice surprise, the finish left me displeased with the overall result. Not buying the hype.

Bottle thanks to matt and Phil. Pours a cloudy orange yellow with small frothy white head. The aroma is strong citrus oil, peach, and apricot. Thin mouthfeel with apricot puree and light sourness. Wow really enjoyed this one. Very impressive stuff.

Hazy orange color with a peach skin smell. Taste was sweet and sour, loaded with stone fruit, yeast and tartness.

brystmar (1276) - Dallas, Texas, USA - FEB 7, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2014 Pours a misty yellow hue with no head. Smells outrageously good: an apricot bomb supplemented with fresh peach juice. Jesus. Bright, puckering sour fruit start to finish. Wine barrels canít hide. Plenty of flavor every step of the way, though itís a bit one-dimensional. But damn, that dimension is amazing. Damn. I donít want to finish drinking my pour because that means I canít smell it anymore. ISO.

Half bottle Ė part of a 5-bottle peach/apricot sour blind tasting. The beer has bright fruit aroma with a hint of canned peach nectar, fruit pits, almond, tree bark with huge acidity. Interesting earthiness to play with the sweet aroma. The beer pours a cloudy yellow with a very thin lace on the sides of the glass. Taste is initially sweet, with that peach flesh and apricot funk. There are notes of sourdough, lemon-lime, nectar and a very dominating sour cherry finish. The body is a little thin, but there is a nice lactic key lime / yogurt note right before the cherry takes over. The finish is very lasting and sour. I find the dominating cherry flavor out of character with the initial aroma and taste. Although there is a subtle note of citrus and peach in the beginning, the finish is a bit harsh. Overall a very complex sour peach/apricot/cherry hybrid with earth notes and some funk.

boFNjackson (4143) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 12, 2014
Bottle @ a recent bottle share... Poured hazy, light golden/orange with a mild forming head. Aroma of peach juice and yeast spices. Tasted like biting into a fresh peach. Amazing fresh peach juice with sweetness and tartness. Refreshing and delicious. Perfect amount of sourness with a hint of barrel. Peach and apricots dominated this delicious beer.

Bottle. Murky burnt orange pour with an off white head. Tantalizing sour peach aromas. Tart, but bursting with flavor. Big peach and apricot highlights with sour cherry and mandarin orange backbeats. Itís sour, but not overly so. The acidity is very mild. Fantastic mouthfeel and body. Bravo!!!!
