Bottle from Proof. Poured into a Goose Island wine-style glass. Slight haze to this beer. Color is like the skin of a lemon. Yellow/gold with a twinge of straw. Tons of bubbly white head that held about a minute before fading into a thinner head and medium collar. Lots of lacing. Aroma is like dry earth, faint barnyard funk, a healthy amount of peach is noticeable, but not at all overpowering. Taste is delightful: peachy farmhouse goodness. Dry/tart yeast. Earthy/floral hops. Simply divine. Nice high carbonation and medium-low body really make this fun to drink.

Rund säuerlicher Antrunk, angenehme Herbe. Die Säure bleibt vordergründig, das Bier frisch, rund, zum Ende aber kratzend. Spritzig, gelungen. 11/10/11/12/9/12

Thanks to Rian. Smooth fresh nose. Hints of sourness in the nose. The beer starts fresh, easy to drink with a nice sourness. Citrus, very smooth, easy to drink but not too deep. Very smooth, nice citrusy hints. Refreshing but the depth is missing for this percentage...

750ml bottle. Clear golden orange color with a fading white head. Big tropical aroma, peach and pineapple. The flavor is also tropical and somewhat citrusy. Peach and mango with slight tartness with mild sweetness to balance. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Overall nice but not a standout.

750ml bottle thanks to rich. Pours out a hazy straw topped with a small white head. Nose is spice fruit and a nice yeast kick. Taste is more of the light spice fruit finishing with a yeast end.
