Pours an ugly cloudy orange with little to no head. Aroma is peach, vanilla, light toast. Taste is medium tart with great fruit flavor. Really interesting and nice sour.

ACBF on tap, but I have had in bottle as well. This one getting the hype as the replacement to flaming fury, weíll see. Pour is nice, a peachy hue, kind of clear, no real depth in color. Aromas are meak, peaches certainly, but Iím not getting any funk, sour notes, or any signs of aging. The palate is very thin, which is what I expected with such a low ABV, however the fruit is decent and fresh. I really do like this one in the end, I just wish the sour levels and acidity was higher.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: light fog of white breads under a splatter of delicate white bubbles.
Nose: peaches and cream. Peachsicles. Cinnamon sticks. Pie crust with crunchy golden baked sugar granules. Indigo. Lemon bars crunchy and caramelized in delicate sugar sprinkles. Lavender.
Palate: creamy and soft with a lingering delicate tart smoothness. Lemon bars, peach sours Ė Sour Patch kids come to mind. Lemon ice and peach ice. Essence of standing on the shore, a gentle salty breeze caressing the senses. Peach skins linger atop the tongue long after each swallow Ė tart and dry and thirst-inducing. Hint of cinnamon powder right in the very front.
Final Thoughts: wow. If Glade made a plug-in air freshener that smelled like this beer, twould not be an empty outlet left in the house. Wow. Cisco Brewers from what Mark tells me is this itsy bitsy family run farmy brewery in the middle of nowhere in Nantucket, Massachusetts. Suffice to say during our next family vacation in Mass Cisco Brewers will be at the top of our BEERtrekking list.

Light honey/10 karat pour with just the faintest tint of apricot. Razor thin head, low carbonation. Fills the nose with aromatic peaches, sour citrus pith, vinegar, and funk. Extremely acidic and tart, the peach less aggressive in flavor that aroma. Light and refreshing.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, caged/corked. Poured exceptionally light in color, with a dervish of carbonation in the middle and just a thin top. Thereís a mellow aroma of sweetness. This drinks with a very sweet and sour impression, mostly puckeringly sweet up front, but with the tart finish ... not unlike sucking on a lemon. At only 4.8% if unfortunately doesnít get the anticipated warmth and kick behind it. Would like to see them try this at a higher gravity. (#4257, 9/13/2011)

Clear straw pour with a thin white head. The nose holds juicy peach nectar, and the slightest hints of acidic funk- almost like faint barrel cheesecake. The flavor takes a drastic turn from this- uber acidic and sour- bursting with peach nectar. The palate is light, but amazingly refreshing. Carbonation is low but ample, while the finish with dry and acidic. Good stuff!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Iíve been a huge fan of this series since itís inception and am stoked to drink this 750ml to the face! Pours a hazy straw/gold colour with a foamy white head that diminishes quickly to a pencil-thin thin ring. The nose is beautifully complex, allowing the nuances of peach, other stone fruits, the barrel tannins and the tart, funky aromas. There is still noticeable coriander, and wheaty goodness coming through in the aroma as well. This is very tart, but not like a Girandin Black Label gueuze of Hanssens lambic. The tartness has a mix of acetic acidity as well as lactic. Peach and apricot flavours meld harmoniously with tart, sharp, cheesy notes. The palate is thin, a bit slick, crisp and quenching. Itís insanely dry in the finish, keeping my coming back for more sicks with increasing frequency. Perhaps it is a bit too highly carbonated for my tastes, which is why I cannot give the palate perfect score. Very refreshing, spritzy, and puckering drink that is not overwhelmingly sour. Phenomenal sour ale that deserves higher marks. This beer has received unfairly low marks within itís style. A beer is allowed to be fruity and thin bodied and not violently sour, especially when intentionally.
