4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle... This beer rocks!… Pours murky and peach-colored with a small, creamy, white head. The bouquet is funky, acidic and super fruity - peaches, apricots and lemons. Full-bodied and creamy with airy carbonation. The flavor is über sour, fruity and bready. Finishes tart with a light, crusty bitterness. BIG TIME THANKS to richiesd for shooting this world class ale to the east coast for the south Florida crew to enjoy!

750 bottle thanks to Adam for finding a hoarder member that had this. Amber orange color with no head to speak of. Nose is nice, peach, apricot and a touch of vinegar. Flavor of peaches, tart tropical fruits, some oak, apricots, and lighter vinegar. Why does every Bruery sour beer display vinegar?? No really every sour beer from this brewery show me vinegar… I guess that is a characteristic of the style? This is best that I have sampled but…. I keep trying sours / American wild but sadly, I still really don’t find them enjoyable.

Traded a FouFoune for this beer in the spring of 2013. Opened it up with Chris. Sour in the Rye Kumquat was awesome so let’s see how this does. Opened around 40F and slowly let it warm up.
A - The most bronze / copper colored beer I’ve seen. 2 finger fluffy off-white head that fades to a nice thin line.
S - The smell is really nice! Loads of spice, tart acetic acid with a touch of balsamic. Peaches are there but not in the nose as much as taste.
T - I gotta say the heartburn kicked in as soon as I took the first sip. Rye spice, vanilla and honey and a really great oak presence, tannic green grape skins and just a ton of peach fuzz, apricot and grapey tastes. But it’s very sour, very difficult to drink more than a glass.
M - Not a lot to say. Has the regular SiTR mouthfeel. Big carbonation on the mouth swish, very creamy and fluffy. just a dessert like even latte creaminess very soft.
O - If this beer was free of vinegar, it would be awesome but it’s not and that’s disappointing.

Hazy orange pour. Nose is tart, some fruitiness, doesn’t leave you anticipating a sour bomb like regular sitr. Taste is initially tart, grainy, and then a sweet fruitiness, like fruit juice. Not enamel-ripping sour like regular sitr. Medium bodied.

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.
