Bottle pour. Aroma is sweet peach, almost peach rings. Tartness is balanced and plays extremely well with the fruit. Another home run from New Glarus.

Had from a friendly pour while waiting in line at DLD 2015. Very nice peach flavor without some of the mouth blistering acidity Iíve seen from other peach sours. Very nice, very drinkable, and very much expected from New Glarus.

After having a couple bottles of this, I like it but it isnít nearly sour or funky enough. A nice hazy orange body with an off-white head. Aromas of peach and malt with some funk and vinegar. Not nearly enough peach or funk in the flavor. It is balanced, but not elevated to a high level of sour. Medium body. Iím excited to see New Glarus sours, but am hesitant to hold them as highly as some of the other sour makers out there today.

Was saving the entry of these notes as a toast to my newborn twin sons, theyíve been here for a week and a half, so itís probably time to just enter it.
Whatís fun is that I took notes on this a couple days after it was released, then again in January of this year, so 2 ratings of one beer, on the occasion of two babies via one pregnancy!

Pours a hazy orange with a smallish head that manages to leave plenty of lacing on the glass. - 4

The aroma is bright with lots of tart fruit, very peachy with some oak and some barnyard funk. Appetizing and pungent! - 8

the flavor is oaky with tart peaches, itís lightly bitter & nicely sour without any acetic character. The bright peach character provides a little sweetness & the earthiness of the beer marries well with the oak. - 8

The palate is lively and well rounded. - 4
Overall - 17

Pours a hazy sort of rust color with a decent head and nice lacing on the glass. - 4

The aroma has plenty of peach and a touch of woodiness. Itís funky and almost sweet smelling at times. - 8

The flavor is woody and lightly sour, itís only a little sweet up front but dry in the finish with plenty of tart peaches. - 8

The palate is very bubbly and a touch sharp - 4
Overall 16


Fun case study, I gave it almost the same score both times, and even though I remember thinking the one we had in January was distinctly different from the fresh bottle, I will say the notes I took were awfully similar.
Funny.

Bottle at the 10th anniversary of Dangerous Bottleshares, thanks to Baron! Pours a hazy reddish amber with a yellowish, big, long lasting head. Looks really nice! Aroma has sweet and very funky peach, "haribo ferskner", peach sorbet. Taste is tart up front, and with a huge dry funk. Sweeter peachy notes. Medium high carbonation and a nice, juicy texture.
