3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at Tony/Jim BA Birthday Extravaganza 2013 (Western Springs, IL). Pours a well hazed amber orange hue, a bit murky with some gentle frothy offwhite head. Laces small, rings ok. Aromas are tart and lactic, big lemony presence meets peaches, some lactic elements, yogurt, and more citrus. Toucyes of yogurt with straw, funk, vanilla. Some touches of oak, gentle bready and gentle rye malts. Initial is lighter end of medium bodied, firm sharp lactic sourness, lemons and peaches, touches of oak, funk, and cobwebs. Nice yougurty and citric appeal, some peaches really liven the joint up. Middle is tart, peaches and apricot, a bit fruity, medium sourness, touches of yogurt. Backend is firmly tart, sour and fruity. Some vibrant flavors, the peach really starts to take off into the backend. A bit biting and bracing, some yogurt, natural with lemon and tartness. Some straw, cobwebs. Finish is lactic, slick and yogurty, nice citric acidity elements taper out. Better than the base. Probaby better than Kumquat. Tasty shit.

On draft at the Brass Tap, poured a cloudy yellow orange color with aromas of light oak, some tart peach, and some light barnyard. Flavors were light tart peaches with some dust. Ok beer over all, wanted more tartness in the flavor.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tasted at GABF. A highlight of the night. Pours golden. Aroma of peaches and vinegar. Very bitter on the front with a nice sweet fruitiness that balances out the back end. Not much of any rye, but a twinge of malty backbone. Nice.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Balanced well between fruit character, lactic sour, and vanilla/oak/earth notes. As with the aroma, the peach character and a slight vinegar presence becomes slightly more pronounced as the beer warms. Perhaps not quite as sour as the base beer without fruit. Complete and delicious. Fantastic.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A steady pour into my teku glass produces a two finger thick, pale tan colored head. The beer is a murky amber hue that shows a pale, redder tinged, amber tinged version of the same when held up to the light. The aroma is quite tart up front, with a nice floral character, a light peach aromatic note, perhaps a touch of an acetic bite, and some spicy rye notes that contribute a bit of whole grain character.
Bracingly sour, in fact this is hard lambic type of sour here such that this is clearly the dominant note. As the palate adjusts a bit some soft peach and general fruitiness starts to come out. Lots of hard lactic acid, some citric acid like flavors seem to come in towards the finish, as well as a touch of spicy rye character. The texture is quite prickly more from the acidity some how than the carbonation, but the latter is lightly here as well. The beer has a dense viscosity to it up front from the rye character, but this is quickly counteracted by the biting acidity that really helps to lighten the body of this beer up quite a bit.
This is quite nice if you are able to withstand the biting acidity; I have certainly had beers that are more sour, but this still is able to be quite drinkable for the sour beer lover.

Bottle shared at Collected Works tasting. Lots of lactic notes throughout, I get goat cheese and Greek yogurt especially. The peaches are pretty subdued, maybe a sort of peach skin note in the flavor. There’s also a heavy acetic burn to the palate.
