On draft at the Barrel House. It pours a nice golden color with a creamy white head. It has a really nice peachy sour aroma, pretty clean with mild white wine notes. The flavor is intense with sour stone fruit and mild acetic notes. Just below my personal threshold before it gets unpleasant. Spicy brett notes as well. Surprisingly full body. Overall, this was a nice sour. I could have used more clean lemony lactic tartness, but it was surely flavorful and had a nice pucker.
