Bottle share, thank you Steve. Hazy yellow color with a small white head. Fantastic aroma of peach and funk, a little wine barrel. Nice fruity sour flavors with a little zip from the wine barrel treatment. Very fruit forward, but plenty of sour. Really nice.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample in less than ideal circumstances Transparant remnant of head, hazy yellow golden beer. Sour peaches, unripe nectarines, green herbs. Lactic and fruit acids. Sharp Very sharp sour flavour, fruit-, lactic- but definitely also acetic acid. Apricots at every new sip, but also a hint at incense. Puckeringly tart, difficult to swallow. Acidthinning and -burn to the extreme. Another one that is all sharpness instead of complexity. Txs to M & L V!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From notes. Enjoyed at Doug’s house for the Epic Peach and Apricot debacle of a tasting that happened on July 9. 750 mL bottle. The pour is a foggy golden orange-ish color with an off white head that falls slowly, leaving a thick ring. This thing is a lacto bomb. There is a nice apricot up front, but then the tart funky lacto sour moves in and I just can’t get past it. The flavor mimics this. There is a tartness up front that the juicy apricot comes into, and then the lacto just sours it up, and controls everything about the finish. The mouth feel is a bit heavier than a lot of the other beers we’d had. The carbonation is a little softer and the apricots are there on the aftertaste with a ton of lacto souring. This one I was heavily disappointed by. I wish there wasn’t so much emphasis on the lacto souring.

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy sour apricot, peach, and lemon. It pours a dull cloudy orange with a small white head that fades to a minimal film outlined by a thin ring. The flavor starts with moderate-heavy sour apricot and a touch of tropical fruits. The finish has moderate-heavy lemon, peach skins, and mild funk. It’s light-medium bodied with mild carbonation and a somewhat soft mouthfeel.
