3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a cloudy golden orange color with a tall white head. Intense aromas of fruit to this one. Lots of peach which gives a slight sweetness, but also enhances the tartness. Lemon/lactic tartness as well as some mild straw and grass notes. The flavor is similarly heavy on the peach. Quite vibrant fruit flavor lending a little bit of balance to the intense sourness. Lemon and lemon zest as well as grass, oak, and some musty notes. Medium in body and carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
My bottle from an IP with FlandersNed. Surprisingly good. Creamy head. Big oaky vanilla flavour finishing with some peach. Lacey. The sour takes over the palate and the other flavours are overwhelmed, but it is a good satisfying sour.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to GRG1313. Slightly disappointed with this one. Pours with a hazed golden body with chunks of fruit in it. White head. Aromas are sweet, vinous, vinegar, earthy and musty. Flavors are acidic, peach, weed, and light funk. Dry, strange texture with the fruit particles. Chunky.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A Sim rate (bottle thanks to the dark horse, Ken): Aroma of sherbert, orange and not very much peach. Real alcohol in there. Soapy, tasty sherbert sourness. Itís pretty good, but nothing in it that blows you away.
