j12601 (6743) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 16, 2014
On tap at Porter Beer Bar. Pours a hazed golden amber with a medium sized white head. Soft musky funk on the nose, hints of old peaches under wood and whiskey. Medium bodied, bright acid with some whiskey and wood hiding out in the background. Acid, funk, chewy wood tannins. Long whiskey, lemon filled acid, tart and tangy with hints of dirty old peaches. Sparkling and vibrant with a lot of depth. Very nice.

kevinator (1040) - The Colony, Texas, USA - OCT 14, 2014
Decent sour in a world where everyone is now making them. Limited edition release at the brewery during GABF week. Aroma of peach and soured fruit. Pretty color of copper with a pinkish tint. It looked like some ciders. Medium to light palate with good carbonation. Some sour up front but subdued with a turn to peach and slightly alcoholic. Liked it.

On tap at Beer Camp Across America southeast. Pours a slightly hazy orange brown with thin off-white head. Aroma is sour peach heavy up with hints of oak and vanilla on the back end. Taste is sour awesome peach, a little sweet but nice balance. Pretty darn awesome.

DrSilverworm (6819) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 24, 2014
Taster on tap at Upland Sour Fest. Mostly clear golden orange color. Thin ring of off-white head. Just a couple loose bits of lace. Really interesting aroma... A very creamy peach flavor to it, definite funk, like a heavily bruised peach and vanilla ice cream. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, crisp, lighter carbonation. Light slick. Moderate sweet taste, lightly tart, light spiciness. Interesting stuff, but a little mild and musty.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2013
On tap at northdown... Pours a mostly transparent golden brown hue and topped with a creamy white head... Sweet maple barrel nose with heavy malt and triple like accents. Peach and booze come into play but overpowered by the aforementioned. A fair bit phenolic and somewhat over the top... Flavors are better than what the aroma suggests with notes of earthy mild peaches exhibiting a decent sour character. Booze is still present with a medium or just there lighter of with soft fluffy carbonation. A bit if bitterness and astringency on the backend.

On tap at Northdown. Nice moderate peach character. Light body and a light acidity. Light and easy drinking.
