6oz pour on tap at the brewery. Pours a slightly hazy glowing yellow with minimal white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is huge ripe white peach, apricot and a light sweetness. Taste is again, very fruit forward with a more apricot forward, slightly unripe peach with a ripe peach skin near the finish. The sour is light to moderate with a nice white wine thing going on to finish this out. My favorite Alpine sour to date.

Bottle. Pours hazy yellow with minimal head. Amazing peach and apricot aromas. So good it’s almost fake. Taste is sour white peaches and apricots. Very tart and good balance. I can’t believe how good this is.

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.

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. It’s sour, but not overly so. The acidity is very mild. Fantastic mouthfeel and body. Bravo!!!!

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 can’t hide. Plenty of flavor every step of the way, though it’s a bit one-dimensional. But damn, that dimension is amazing. Damn. I don’t want to finish drinking my pour because that means I can’t smell it anymore. ISO.

Bottle shared post-GABF. Not quite sure who brought this one. Really amazing apricot and peach aroma. Almost real enough to be fake. Tart with lots of lacto, oak, and a dry fruit. Finishes clean. Wonderful.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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. 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.
