Nose light peaches, pretty tart smelling but not super sour in the palate. Kinda has a wine spritzer character to it. Tasty but largely forgettable.

Bomber into snifter glass, clear yellow-golden color with white lacing. Aroma notes of peach, barnyard yeast funk, grainy malt, white wine, dried apricot and brett. Taste adds white grape, vanilla, citrus zest and sour yeast. Light-medium body, moderate-low carbonation, soft, lively with sharp tart fruity finish. May be my first peach sour, very nice.
