Bottle at the radikal whale slaying. Thnx to FX. Pours dark orange , no foam. Smell is full, fruity, mild sourness. Taste is very intense, sour ( mostly lactic) rich fruityness. Juicy peaches. Donít get the white wine as a specific, but it does help the fruits to rise up in the taste. I like it.

Bottle shared by Adam, thanks! Pours a hazy deep gold with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a great tart peach note with a bit of tart and sweet apricot, light acid and a bit of a funkiness. Flavor has a really nice tart peach note with a bit of acid, a touch of tart apricot and a wine dryness in the finish.

500ml bottle acquired via trade on bA. Thanks, bro. The gem of our tasting tonight. Pours a deeper golden orange hue, decent haziness with nice sunny glow, frothy offwhite head dies to a nice firmer ring, decent lacing sticks around ok. A nice decent hazed glow. Aromas are rich and peach driven, mellow oak, cobwebs and firmer lactic and peach life. Big peach and nectarine nectar, citrus and a bit of white grape. Gentle bread, funk, and touches of yogurt. Initial is peachy and lively, sour and white peach meets lemon, citrus and oak. Touches of white wine, grape and yogurt meet a bit of bready malt, straw. Middle gets a bit funky, dry, tannic. Still, that big fruity apricot nectar, lemon and some acidity. Firmer yogurt, earth, bread. Backend is sour and lively, a bit bitter with rich peachy/apricot life. Fruity, lush and amorous. Some juiciness, oak and lactic life. A bit of acidity, yogurt, and citrus. Lively flavors, not acedic, instead focused and flavorful. Really nice stuff. Big fruit flavor, good firm sourness, nothing harsh. Lovely.

Bottle shared post-GABF. Not quite sure who brought this one. Really amazing apricot and peach aroma. Almost real enough to be fake. Tart with lots of lacto, oak, and a dry fruit. Finishes clean. Wonderful.

Bottle. Less acidic than other Alpine sours that have come before. Apricots and peaches are front and center with a nice citrus peel tartness. Some vinous qualities along with some light oak. Long tart semi-dry finish. Very well done.
