4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a bottle, 2013 vintage.
Aroma starts out moderately fruity with some nice stone fruit and more specifically peach notes. As that recedes you pick up the oak barrels and a light white wine note. Light citrus notes and moderate acidity. Hints of tropical fruit and a touch of rye spice.
Pours a slightly hazy golden orange with a copper hue. Moderate sized, light tan head that quickly recedes to the edges and disappears. No lacing and small legs.
Flavor is fairly acidic with quite a bit of citrus. Light rye spiciness. Light oak and white wine notes. Moderate peach notes with other stone fruit as well. Hints of tropical fruit.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium high carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, a pretty nice beer with a balanced background peach note. I like that the peach is secondary, but others may prefer a stronger character. Lots of acidity.

Bottleshare thanks to dextercat. Pours a lighter copper compared to sitr w kumquats. Aroma is mostly tart acidity, hard to find the fruit. Taste is light than kumquats, still sour, but not as in your face. Get some of the peachy flavor. Personally like this one better.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared thanks to dextercat. Nose is sour, almost makes my gills water. Some fleshy peach notes. Pour is murky orange with minimal head. Taste is immediately puckering and makes my tummy gurgle. Peach is secondary in the flavor compared to sourness. Very good but I think the kumquat is expressed a little better than the peach.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Side by side with SitR-Kumquat. Aroma is big sour, lots of sweet tart (not quite as much as the K). Mostly clear, pale orange with small light colored head. Very sour, very tart, puckering, some light peach character, more so than the Kumquat character, more peach as it warms, acidic, and more sour in the finish. Sour is overpowering like all SitRs but very nice with small fruit character. Heartburn to follow.

(750ml bottle) Pours a cloudy maize body with a medium white head. Aroma of peach, oak, mustiness, barnyard, and earth. Flavor of peach, lacto, oak, lemon, brett, subtle vanilla, white grape skin, and grapefruit with a dry finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to tectactoe for sharing. From memory mostly. Aroma of grain and ultra funky peach. Tastes super sour and acidic to me just like the base beer. Some peach-y yogurt comes through too but just barely. Itís solid and well made but just too extreme with the sourness and acidity like the base beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Hazy, nearly opaque copper body with a fizzling beige head that retracts to a collar in moments. Big punch of sour peach, vinegar, lactic yogurt, lemons, & sharp citrus on the nose. Gets the saliva glands pumping. Small hint of sweaty jock-strap funk buried underneath. Tons of sour citrus on the palate, too, with a good kick of vinegar, acetic acid, apple, lemon, peach, stone fruit, & a modest overlay of mildly perfumy & floral notes that *sound* out of place, but work really well. Lightly musty, damp hay funk with a big drying oak finish, perhaps with a very small hint of vanilla? Sharp, crisp body. A very, very nice beer. I preferred the Kumquat version & donít really think this is vastly superior to the original even, but itís still mighty delicious.

Bottle: The aroma consists of sour peaches, lemons, hints of cola, and vinegar. It pours a hazy burnt orange with a small white head that quickly fades to a thin ring around the edges of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of peach with a hint of cola. The finish has moderate heavy sour citrus and lemon with a hint of vinegar. Itís medium bodied with moderate-lively carbonation.
