2nd rating - Same but a bit more bright.
Aroma vino blanco, algo de madera y levadura. En boca ligera acidez, ageadables notas de madera, ligero ahumado con un muy buen final seco y acido

Very interesting story behind these acquisition of YB. Id like to give a big thank you to Tomme and David for authenticating my bottles. They went way out of their way to help me and it is much appreciated radagast83 (8520) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUL 1, 2012
A- Poured from a Tomme Arthur hand signed bottle. Beautiful apricot color with a light ring of head.
N- Peach, peach, peach.... drank next to V004/V010 and the peach in YB was more prominent. Sour notes of vinegar probably from the age. Brett and moldy peach funk
T- Fresh ripe peach as though they were picked yesterday, sour peach skins, light vinegar and brett. moderate funk, with incredibly well balanced sweet/tart characteristics. Peach e o’s come to mind
M- smooth with very light carbonation.
O- The best peach sour i have ever had...hands down... My wife drank most of my pour not realizing how rare the yellow bus is. Big thanks to Mark for letting me drink pretty much half of his glass.
Alright, so yeah - this is courtesy of Tomme Arthur - this is roughly #20 of the remaining bottles of this beer in possession of Mr. Arthur and The Lost Abbey - yes there are apparently now less than 20 bottles left (please keep that secret).
Poured a slightly cloudy, vibrant orange-yellow color, with not much of a head to speak of. Aroma was mild peaches, but with that said - the flavor was mightly peachy. So peachy. Well, I love this - it is well balanced with plenty of enjoyable tart notes.
