3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle @ Joel Tucker’s Party Palace. Hazed straw colored pour with a white head. Sour, underripe peach, green grape, and yogurt. Mild to moderate funk, maybe a bit of kombucha. Sourness sort of dominates the flavor, but there is a good funk to it as well. Slight mushroom, some yogurt, and kombucha. Nice peach and apricot. Some lemon juice and zest to it as well. Maybe a little bit of oak and white wine, definitely some grape skin.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle provided by Willrunforbeer, much thanks. Light color with ample carbonation. The aroma is delicate, mild fruit, light Brett and hey. The flavor is spot on the aroma, mild oak tannins, juicy peach, more tartness than sour. Effervescent mouthfeel and Lightly acidic toward the backend. Pretty tasty and glad to have tried it.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours hazy golden, medium off-white head, dissipates fairly slowly leaving a ring and nice lacing. Aroma is bretty, peach skins, oak tannins, basement. Flavor is dry, peachy, lots of Bretty funk going on, oak tannins add acidity and flavor. Medium tart, medium funky. Pits and skins. Medium body, acidic, fairly high carbonation. These guys really hit on all cylinders right out of the gate. Impressive.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nose is initially offputting but opens up to show stone fruit, peach and apricot. Still a bit of funk. Pour is mostly clear, small white head. Tasters moderately peachy with a bit of earthy funkiness, slightly dirty. A touch sweet as it warns. Some acidity but not over powering. Very drinkable.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pale yellow amber. Cloudy. Small-ish white head of creamy froth. Just a bit of lacing. The aroma has a whole bunch of peach flavor. It’s natural and sweet. Underlying funk. Dusty farmhouse saison yeast note. Mild oak barrel comes out. Some other fruitiness, grapes, plums and mild sweet citrus. Taste has light acidity. Much less tart than the apricot version. Creamy peach sweetness. Restrained juiciness, still quite good. The oak barrel is a bit stronger. Maybe, a vinous note with the oak. Spicy, fruity funk with a nice saison character. Light malt sweetness. Everything comes together very well. Refreshing and complex. Light and creamy feel. Full. Another excellent beer from Tahoe Mountain, though I prefer the apricot.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Liked this one alot, just like the apricot. The difference between the 2 is that while they are both of the stinky cheese sour variety (yum) the apricot is a little funkier while this is a little more fruit leaning. Both are excellent and refreshing, depending on your mood. So glad to have sours of this calaber being made <40 miles away

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a 12 oz bottle.
Aroma is very fruity with a ton of peach character. Light tropical fruit with pale malt notes. Faint oak character.
Pours a fairly clear, pale yellow gold with a thin, fairly large, fluffy white head that recedes quickly to the edges where it lingers for a bit.
Flavor is slightly acidic with some medium light oak notes and faint tannins. Light malt character and medium light peach notes. Faint tropical fruit and cherry notes with some citrus notes.
Mouthfeel is medium light bodied with medium high carbonations. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, a really nice beer with tons of juicy fruit character. Nice secondary oak and Brett character that compliment the aroma really well, but slightly overpower the peach flavor.
