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.

Bottle shared at the RBESG 2014, grand tasting 10/08/2014 Craft Beer Co Clerkenwell. Clouded yellow / straw coloured pour with a thin white head.

Palate is semi-sharp, crisp and somewhat wheaty. Tasty.

"Holy hell this is one good brew. Best peach beer ever. Easily. Great mix of ripe juicy peach and stinky cheese. If you told me Cantillon made this I’d believe you. 2012 was a little funkier, 2013 a little fruitier, but with a more than adequate sour aspect. Love it!"

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle at DC Epic Sour Tasting 2014, courtesy of noodleuser, thank you sir! I’ve been tantalizingly close to tasting this one several times before, thank, Joel, for finally making it happen. Hazy yellow color, fluffy of white head. Gorgeous aroma of perfume, fresh meadows, light funk, grapes that have been carried around in someone’s grandmother’s skin folds (and I mean hat in a good way). Taste is softly sour mixed summer fruit, lavender, berries. Delicious.
