3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle… Cloudy straw-colored ale with a small, fizzy, white head. Very subtle, restrained aroma; I can only pick out the faintest note of peach puree. Pungent flavor with subtle peach and lemon nuances. Heavily acidic and citric with a very crisp hop bite. Light-bodied with fizzy carbonation. Lengthy, sour, refreshing finish. It sweetens up a bit as it warms and begins to present some unsavory corn and mash notes in the nose. I enjoyed it more when thoroughly chilled.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle. Closest thing I have to a bowl is an old Johnnie Walker scotch glass, so that gets duties here. Pours a yellow/orange body, very fizzy, with a rapidly vanishing white head. Nothing more than a few white bubbles after 30 seconds. Man the body on this thing is full of carbonation, looks like a Sprite in the glass. Aroma is a bit muted, but I get some peaches, oranges and lemons in there. Tough to pull though. Fore of the tongue is very sour, full of peaches and lemons, and heavily astringent/acidic. Also get some wheat notes in there. Light to medium bodied, heavily carbonated. Finish is at first sour, then folds into a mellow sweetness that lingers for a good while. First example of this style, and it’s damn good. Excellent summer brew. I need more of this.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured hazy pale yellow color with fizzy whitish head. Aroma is large citrus melody, mostly peach, lime, and lemon, maybe a bit of grapefruit. Flavor is very very sour and peachy and lemony. Maybe some like this kinda beer but reminded me too much of a woodchuck cider gone peachy and bad.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
i know i am completely unfamiliar to this style, so i may come off a bit harsh...
on tap...hazy straw colored body with medium white head...aroma is large in lemon with small peach/apricot undertones to the basic wheat backbone..pleasant nose, but very minimal and basic...flavor is quite puckering with a large lemon juice backbone...peach is very subtle, and comes across more in the finish...body is quite musty and acidic (somewhat lambic-esque in nature)...wheat undertones as well...the slight over carbonation of this beer created a somewhat unpleasant mouthfeel (as well as its perceived "dryness")...interesting, but dont think id want another one

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Hazy cider-like body beneath a puny white head. Little peach in the nose. More lemon, yeast, wheat, and the air upon emptying a vacuum cleaner bag. Medoum body and fizzy. Acrid to the tongue. Unpleasant beer.

A slight aroma of peach and wheat. Taste is acidic and only slightly fruity. Thirst quenching but eh.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Hazy pastel yellow-orange with a small white head. Musty sweet peaches, grassy grainy notes, very light yeasty funk. First sip is bracingly sour - tart. Tong quickly acclimatizes though and the sour comes in waves. Very light fruit character like an over attenuated cider, light peach, straw. Light palate is fairly effervescent. Pleasant change of pace. I want to say I like it but I do not necessarily crave more of it.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very carbonated, light in color, fizzy sour nose, subtle peach flavour but not intense. It reminds me of a faintly peach flavoured pale lager which isn’t a good thing. My sister loved it and she isn’t really a beer conosour.
