3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle @ 10K + OT. Thanks, Jake. Clear golden pour with a finger of white foam. Nose is tart lemon juice and underripe peach. Green grapes, oak, and a slight damp funkiness. Really nice and bright acidity to the taste. Plenty of green grapes, lemon, and peach. Sour stone fruit, oak, and a dry, leather note. A touch of mineral oil. Solid.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared at westmeister’s. Peach aromas and flavors. Whiskey and wood sneak through to the palate as well. These flavors are confilcting somewhat and the bitter peach does not meld too well with the smooth whiskey. Points for uniqueness but the end result didn’t quite come together for me perfectly.

Cumming Ga Tasting. Thanks jrob21 for providing this one. Quite the unique brew here. Oak, peach, bourbon, fruit, light funk, apricot, spice. Some of the flavors are a bit conflicting, but overall this is a nice sour with an interesting twist.

Forsyth County Bumble Tasting. Scent is more earth and citrus without much bourbon. Bourbon is noticeable in the flavor, and, surprisingly, blended well. Darker clear pear with small white head. Medium carbonation on medium light body. Bottle - Shared at Tasting

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A - pours hazy orange amber with zero head. S - nice fruity aromas of peaches, apricot, apple juice, orange, white grape and pineapple are all mixed in with sweet musty whiskey barrel notes. Some acetic axis ad lemon juice. M - a little sour and medium strangely dense body. Dry alcohol warmed. T - up front taste is dried apricot and fleshy peaches with overripe orange juice with a quick acetic acid nip. The palate is malty sweet citrus musty oak as peach pie. End is musty and whiskey. O - this is a nice sour. Maybe the best whiskey aged light beer I've had. Still doesn't exactly work as well as say the Chardonnay surette. 4.1

Wafting fruit bowl aromas, peach and orange. Cloudy orange colour with spider lace. Smooth mouthfeel, a tad above average mouthfeel. Declicious moderate fruit, tart building up in finish (and extra in sediment). No sign of booze however alcohol warming on another wind chill night.
Marvelous, thanks again Jason B.
