4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Smell is almost like a sour red. You get hints of stone fruit and funk in there. Taste is like a sour red mixed with a bit of stone fruit, brett, and oak. In the finish you get all of that followed by a punch of bread/yeast/wheat. Medium body, high carbonation, and mild foam.

Part of the RBSG vertical. Thanks Jer!
A: Cloudy gold, some white head.
N: Lemon, funk, earthiness, attic spaces, acetone, vinegar, and some green apple.
T: Very tart with lots of acetone.
M: Light body, sharp carbonation.
O: Not a fan, and in fact, I’m surprised that 007 had more stone fruit flavor than this one - though the peach is probably contributing to the acetone profile.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft. Cloudy burnt orange, like mulled cider, with thin head of grayish bubbles. Complex aroma. Barnyard funk provides a backdrop for sweet cherry, peach, sour apricot, orange peel and caramel. Displays rich aged character I’ve only previously found in Cantillon products. Not as tart as expected. Definitely some fruit juice in here -- the sweet/sour balance is right on. Sweet apricot and peach up front, a little sour lemon, some vinegar (leaning balsamic), and the swallow delivers sweeter cherry and caramel malt. A little weak at the finish. Allow it to sit on the tongue for a while and the apricot really comes forward. Viscous medium body, mild carbonation like pepper. Alcohol is unnoticeable. Good but not mind-blowing. The sour yeast need more time to take hold, methinks. I’d give it a year or two.

[ Bottle ][ 750mL ][ cquiroga ][ Gift ][ Reidel Vinum XL Pinor Noir ][ 3.29.15 ]
>> Rating #9100. Thank you Chris for this treat! Clear deep orange amber pour, fizzy yellow foam. Nose is mild soap, tamarind, saltwater..moves to sour cherry, dried pineapple. Not really peach or nectarine. Taste is bubbly, lightly spicy, medium lemon lime, fruit leather. Flavor is pretty impressive for this series, no acetic, big dried apricot fruit leather. Browned butter, spicy oak take over as it warms. Softer and complex, not really a one-note peach sour like I expected. Almost mixed drink/cocktail fruit blend.

Poured from bottle to glass. Amber hue with fizzy off white head that dissipated to a thin ring. Aroma is tart cherry, oak, lactic, acetic. Mouthfeel is great with a medium light body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry sweet with a tart following. Overall this is a great brew.
