drowland (5953) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - FEB 24, 2012
2/24/12. On tap at the brewery during RBWG 2012... thanks! Hazy orange pour with a small ring of khaki head. Definite sour aroma - acidic, sour, and fruity - with nice vanilla touches. Very tart flavor, acidic and citrusy with complex fruitiness, a bit of vanilla and wood, slight funkiness, and lingering tartness and dryness. This is the best beer of the day so far!

thirdeye11 (5390) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 10, 2012
(Draught) very cloudy gold pour. Nose of peach, lightly tart, real fruit, light barrel, funky, and smells incredible. Taste of tart peach, light funk, yogurt, light wood, and complex in general. Oily body and excellent carbonation. Freetail’s best beer to date, by a long shot.

TheAlum (5205) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - APR 1, 2014
Bottle shared at Dunt’s Tasting (Chicago, IL). Pours a nice hazy golden hue, gentle bubbly carbonation, frothy whitish head dies to a decent ring, laces ok. Aromas are gentle peach, crisp cereal and bready malts. A touch of straw, gentle yeastiness and oak. Mellow peach and lactic acidity. Nose comes on a bit harder as it settles in. Initial is a bit tart, fruity, the wit base certainly shows some life. A bit of coriander, citrus and bready malt. Touches of lactic acidity meet sweet and tart peaches, peach juice, oak and gentle bready malt. Flavors and sour element comes together better into the backend. A bit more lactic and oak presence, the base comes more in line. A bit more bitey sourness and peach as we really get there, distinct bready and cereal malts. Nice at times, a firm sourness but also a lot of base and Wit feel at others. A nice beer, better than that Salado we opened a few months back but still a bit young. Solid.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - MAY 24, 2012
Tap at brewpub
Pours a cloudy yellow with a nose of peche blanket and horse barn blanket. Flavor is uber-sour peach. leathered cherry, and barn air. Oily mouthfeel. Wow. Just WOW.

Terminus (3146) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - JUL 5, 2012
Tap at brewpub-pours clear yellow very lite with no head. nose is sour banyard kind of funk, lite vinegar-very nice! lots of lemon like sourness, kind of like a lemonhead candy. lite bitterness on the finish and a very nice sour note with alot of wood alongside it. This is almost a lambic if you ask me, just needs a bit more funky aspects. well done, but not the best sour i had in the sampler.

On tap at brewpub. Pours a cloudy yellow with no head. The aroma is strong peach and apple. Thin mouthfeel with a sour apple and peach flavor with tart finish. Easy to drink a very good sour ale from Freetail.
