Candor*2: Its a blend of the Peach Sour with our Stationmaster Wheat, but in a 70-30 blend, which makes it quite tart, but in a pleasing way.

Draft on tap at the brewpub (Flossmoor, IL). Jumped at the chance to try the stronger sour blend. Pours a pretty dark murky brownish amber pour, much darker than expected with lingering yeast, and a losse tannish head that dies to a small loose ring, laces small. Aromas are a really nice potent sourness, lemons and peaches mix with bready malts, bretty straw and dust, a nice kick of fruit. The peaches are strong and firm, aromatic sour peaches take control with lactic acid, bread dough. A touch of vinegar. Initial is medium bodied offering a potent sourness up front: sour peaches and lemons bear fruit and good lactic acid, touches of brett. Some floaties, touches of crab apple move into bread dough and yogurt on the backend, showing some of that lighter Stationmaster cut. I must admit, much like the original Candor the aroma is more powerful than the flavor, and the sour kicks up front instead of lingering, mellowing into the wheaty Station base as you get further in. Yogurt, wet cereal grains, some lingering apple, touches of lemons, light peach. Promising up front, pretty drinkable. Id still like to try the beer unblended. Pretty good, perhaps a touch better than regular Candor.. But this far out they seem really similar based on memory. Perhaps a bit more sourness up front, but finish very similar. Aroma does a bang up job, gets a little acidic in the finish further in, speaking to the stronger blend a little more. The peaches do start to linger a bit more in the finish as some lactic acid starts to stick around. I enjoyed this, a bit more staying power than the original as far as lingering sourness.. But the flavors overall are very similar. Id give the nod to this one, despite the same numeric score

Served on draft at the brewpub. Pours a hazy brownish red color with a thin head that fades quickly. Aroma of tart cherries, berries and earthy notes. The taste is tart berries and cherries, caramel, wheat and earthy notes. Medium bodied.
