3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Hazy dandelion gold with a fuzzy off-white head. Aroma has prominent peach followed by sharp vanilla and oak, lemon and soft wheaty funk. Big peach flavor, very much like biting into the fruit with sweet juice and a little peach-skin bitterness. Acidity is very mild, as is the funk. Watery medium-light body; mild CO2. Good peach flavor but lacking in the acidity and complexity of other Cisco sours.

Bottle split at Bruces pad - for the last time, big thanks to LKS, 27/03/15.
Hazed orange golden with a moderate off white covering.
Nose is lemon rind, tarte apricot, buttery notes - but not in a bad way, pissy tones.
Taste comprises light funk, atraw, apricot yoghurt, citric zest, peach, tangerine, tarte fruit rinds.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with a funky soured fruit wash.
Decent approachable sour.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml corked and caged bottle. This one has a light peachiness and a sourness that is nonexistent until the finish where it gives a nice sharp puckering note. Pleasant beer but nothing mindblowing.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Thanks, Jeff. Semi-clear amber body with a slightly off-white head that fades to a thin collar quickly. Aroma of dusty peach, popcorn kernels, mild grassy, green, & slightly vegetal floral notes, a big of tart, acidic stone fruits lingering hard on the back-end. Flavor full of sour lemon, lacto, acidic peach, lightly juicy with a strong rush of drying oak mid-palate to finish. Some dusty hay-funk coats the palate into the aftertaste; leaves the mouth dry & tart.
