On tap @ Provisions Market. Hazed orange pour with a small white head. Nice sour peach candy aroma, some oak, green apple, and lemon juice. A touch of musty funk, hay, and yogurt. Fairly sour taste. Big time lactic acidity. Tons of lemon, green apple, and peach. Sour peach candies, yogurt, and some grass. Wet hay, oak, and a slight blue cheese on the finish.

Draft pour at Toronado. Pours a golden color with a sweet and sour peach aroma. Intense sour fruit flavor with peach and orange. Juicy, with a long lingering sour finish. Amazing beer to say the least. Loved it.

This is an amazing beer. Smooth cascade of sour peaches that flow into a crisp, tart preach. So much intensity but bone dry. Amazing beer!

On tap at Harry’s Hofbrua. This is a great beer! Hazy golden with a full white head (perhaps aided by an over gassed keg that needed some settling). Beer had fresh peach and tart aroma. Taste is well balanced tart sourness with supportive yeasty and bread backing. Nice ripe white fruit.

Epic! On draft at LA during the Christmas in July event. Tons of peach freshness at only 5+ ABV! As always, Lost Abbey killing it. Thanks Tomme Arthur for the free Veritas tickets!

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2014 Tap at the Ale Arsenal 2nd Anniversary. Pours hazy brilliant apricot butterscotch, no head, no lacing, but a beautiful color. Aroma is heavy peach, barnyard funk, lemon, some oak. Flavor is fruity and bright, a bit of initial sweetness fading quickly to medium tart, stone fruit, but not necessarily peach specific, skins and pits, lemon, barnyard. Lingering tartness. Medium body, flat. Pretty nice. I wish it had some carbonation, but... Lost Abbey.

bhensonb (11060) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Tap at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours light amber with no head. LIght sour aroma. Flavor is quite tart. It’s even very sour light stone fruit. I shudder at each delicious quaff. Sour doesn’t seem brett. It’s not very earthy. Finishes dang sour and fruity. And really shockingly sour to the end. Woot!

A well carbonated, fruity LA sour so it’s basically a guaranteed winner. Fresh peachiness and a nice lactic tartness. Not funky but really delicious, better than peak FF by my analysis.

popery (1418) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 12, 2014
Pours cloudy and orange gold, small white head, dissipates quickly. Aroma is funky and peachy, fairly jammy, good deal of funk. Quite sour, lots of peach sourness, loses some delicacy, could be cleaner but interesting enough I guess. Lots of pucker, a little thick.

Draft at the 2014 Anniversary Party. Semi cloudy golden pour, with a white head. Sour green apple, peach juice, lactic acid, funk, hay, yogurt, musty, and lemon. Weird beer, quite sour. I like it.
