On tap at hot city pizza for sourfest. Aroma is mouth watering sour. Flavor is fruity and sour! Palate finishes dry. Very clear pour with diminishing head. Loving it!

On tap. Hazy golden with a fizzy white head. Big peach and berry aroma with tons of sour fruit notes and hints of green apple. Very bright silky palate. Tastes of sour peaches, apricot, pear, and sour green apple with a good crisp tart bite and a dry white wine finish. Damn good.

Bottle via trade with brian, keith, joe and bill. Pours clearish gold with light head. Aroma is floral funky brett and peach nectar. Taste is ultra tart peach sourness, sweet tart candy, brett, barrel, and more skunk funk. Medium body. Puckery. This is the shit.

Tasted on 2/813 at the SF beer week opening celebration. The full batch now called The Unity, as in Edward finally gets released on 2/9/13. This one seems to be rounding into form nicely. It pours a clear gold/orange with a white head. The aroma is very sour and lactic with low but perceptible funk and bright peaches. Good balance. The flavor is beautiful tart peaches with some crackery and almost cookie like malt near the finish. Barrel influence comes across as a touch of coconut and vanilla. Finishes very tart and lemony. Really nice sour.

Bottle. Pour a much deeper hue than I expected; reddish amber with a small off-white head that mostly dissipates, leaving a ring that nevertheless laces rather well. Aroma is that beautiful woody, tart, fruity, vinaceous smell of a good sour. I don’t get peach per se, but what I get I like. Flavor is lightly sweet, light to medium tart, just a touch of funk, buttery peaches, wood, but minimal associated astringence. Semi-dry finish. Medium body, champagnelike carbonation, a bit creamy in the mouth. Quite the tasty beer. I definitely get the butter notes that popery mentions, but not sure if it is diacetyl or just peaches; I don’t get anything off in the finish.

(12oz bottle thanks to bu11zeye) clear bright gold, fine white bubbles. Nose of peaches, quite tart smelling, funky wine barrel, fresh herbs and yogurt. Taste of tart peach, light acetic, wine barrel, straightforward but awesome.

Clear yellow pour with a nice white head. Peach and citrus nose. Tart and nice tasting. Soft. Complex. Stone fruit.

Draft at Ale Industries. Pours a brilliantly clear, deep-golden color with a modestly retained white head. Lots of bright tropical fruit character and oak coupled to a juicy grapefruity tartness. Mouthwatering and complex. Medium body; lively-ish CO2; juicy, juicy grapefruit and tropical fruit tartness alongside lightly buttery oak and a hint of tannins; delicious, nicely tart, well-developed brett character really bringing out that tropical note, plus bright (American?) oak. Balanced, toasty, lightly tart end. Per Morgan: this beer’s 14 months in the making, 12 months in the barrel. Kudos to Jesse on this one. Nom.
