3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a cloudy orangey color ale with a medium size white head with ok retention and some light lacing. Aroma of light fruit notes with some tart notes that are easily discernible. Taste is a mix between some light apricot notes with some tart notes with a light funky finish. Body is somewhat full with good carbonation. I must admit that my expectation were quite high but this seems to lack the complexity I was anticipating.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tasted in summer 2012 with Curtis and the Nashville crew. Pours hazy yellow/orange with an average white head that leaves a nice collar of lace. The nose is nicely sour with tons of lemon acidity, a hint of white wine vinegar, and tons of peach, trending to the under-ripe. The flavor is a bit more ripe with peach, quite sour but not abrasive, white wine vinegar, and a touch of vanilla barrel treatment. The body is light and tannic with average carbonation and a long sour peach finish. Big thanks to Sean von Tagen for sharing this one with me so many different times.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a peach meat color with a fine white sheet. Smells sour, lactic bite is there before I even get into it. Then there is some sweet peach, some grain, some funk. Nice nose, I’m anticipating some really sour beer here.....It’s sour, then, some bicarb, some funky brett notes. Clean finish. the peaches aren’t there for me. Medium on light bodied with medium on high carb and a semi dry finish. Nice beer, not a beer you’d nut off to get to...Honestly.

Thanks to tom10101 for arranging the trade, thanks to (sorry. I forgot your handle) for the actual beer. Pours a pale golden and is topped by a small head that transform into a thin veil but you can easily revive it. Low lacing power, though. Aroma is of peaches, sour wheat and grass. Taste is tart, fruity (bursting with peaches and apricots). It also contains some light wheat notes and yeast. Mouthfeel is really light, almost watery. This isn’t a bad thing necessarily, it is really drinkable. Really nice and never too much.
