(Draught) very cloudy gold pour. Nose of peach, lightly tart, real fruit, light barrel, funky, and smells incredible. Taste of tart peach, light funk, yogurt, light wood, and complex in general. Oily body and excellent carbonation. Freetail’s best beer to date, by a long shot.

Clear, slight yellow appearance. No head. Raw peach and apricot and slightly sweet taste is awesome. Lovely tartness. Sweet and lots of grainy grassiness. Really nice

Terminus (3634) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 5, 2012
Tap at brewpub-pours clear yellow very lite with no head. nose is sour banyard kind of funk, lite vinegar-very nice! lots of lemon like sourness, kind of like a lemonhead candy. lite bitterness on the finish and a very nice sour note with alot of wood alongside it. This is almost a lambic if you ask me, just needs a bit more funky aspects. well done, but not the best sour i had in the sampler.

Rosebud butternuts (2396) - Denton, Texas, USA - FEB 24, 2012
On draft at brewpubs. Poured yellow with a white head. Aroma was peach, sour, citrus, and awesome. Flavor was pretty much the same with a dry body and fizzy carbonation.

deekyn (1459) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 16, 2014
- pours apricot yellow with no head. S - you can tell this is an ananke derivative. That chemical tone. Honey, canned peaches, pineapple juice, lemon juice and acetic acid. Notes of candied sugar. M - sweet as dry. Low carb. Nice amount of sour. T - follows the nose with lots of peach and canned pineapple. Honey and that freetail Sour goodness. O - another nice freetail sour.

brystmar (1314) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 10, 2014
Batch 2, so this is relatively fresh. Hazy gold-straw, somewhat transparent with a good amount of silky white lace.

Aroma is off: super lactic, soured yeast, roast beef (srsly). Improves as it warms, but seriously some prime rib in there when chilled.

Canned peach juice. Mild tartness, lacks the depth and intensity of Woodicus. Honestly totally unlike the base, which I strongly prefer. B1 may have been better, but this isn't anything to write home about right now. No homerism here.

I do expect this to change significantly with time, though, and hopefully for the better.

Rated based on notes taken 27 May 2012 -- At the brewery during San Antonio Craft Beer Week. Strong sour cherries, with bitter middle and sweet finish,
