sarro (122) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUN 10, 2012
Rate based on second bottle I had (first wasn’t as fruit forward or creamy). Slow gush on opening. Pours a yellowish, light orange with a thin frothed head. Nose is sticky, prickly fruit full of apricot and peach notes and a tiny bit of yogurt. Creamy mouth feel. Beer drinks softly with no real alcohol presence to speak of and finishes with some bitter fruit skin. Creepy girl on the label gets a bit cuter when you get to the end of the bottle.

RichTheVillan (2681) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2014
Bottle drank during RBESG; hazy yellow pour with a frothy white head, lovely peach aroma, taste has an excellent level of acidity well balance with fruit, peach, apple, citrus, has that lip puckering sourness, excellent use of brett. Real stand out beer of the RBESG Sunday tasting at craft.

Sour, earthy, subtly fruity aroma. Tart, fruity (apple-ish?) flavor. Earthy flavor is subtle. Sweeter finish.

dfroms (230) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUN 14, 2014
Bottle. Pours glowing apricot color with small head that dissipates. Aroma is amazing: softly acidic ripe peach, tropical fruit, saltwater, lemon. Taste is ripe and juicy piece, orange, lemon. Great balance, long finish. One of the best fruited sours, especially American, that I’ve had.

nimbleprop (4741) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 6, 2014
750ml bottle pours a clear gold with some sudsy white head. Nose is nice, sweet, honey, loads of peach, apricot, nectarine, white grape, perfume, just loads of fruit. Flavor is beautiful, sweet, lightly tart, fruity, dripping ripe peach, ripe nectarines, a little pinot gris, white grapes, lavender, honeysuckle, a little zucchini blossom. Clean, fruity finish. Superb.

Small sample from bottle @ Zeebra II. Pous hazy dark yellow with a small white head. Aroma of peach, apricot, yellow fruits and some malts. Taste has yellow fruits, peach,a soft sourness, some yeast and a medium bitter, slightly dry, finish. Medium body and carbo. Nice and refreshing.

MrHangover (2456) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 25, 2014
Bottle @ tasting, courtesy of kermis. Small gusher. Pours a hazy amber, headless beer with the aroma of butter, peaches, diacetyl and tropical fruit. Flavor is light sour, yeasty and a bit messy. Could be infected, could be the American take on a Belgian style. Way too yeasty and buttery for me, yet the fruity touches of this are pretty nice as well. Decent, but certainly not impressive.
