Thanks to Mike! 750 ml. bottle sampled. Batch #2. Hazy citrus golden, quite hazy, solid white head. Nose carries some USA sour vinegar, glue profile, bit strangely mineral but you get very quickly past that, you start getting more fruit, big apricot, some mango. Taste is amazing, great puckering huge fruit, mango (lots actually) with big apricot, nicely puckering, great amazing fruit, nicely sour, puckering, great lacto, really good, massive fruit, great puckering,... Soft carbonation, rich body. Stupidly better than the other 2 Pizza Boy sours that I tried prior to this one.

2016 Boise stone fruit bottle share on 8/27. 750ml bottle thanks to steve. Hazy golden pour , small white airy head. Tart, fruity, some wooden notes. More grapes than stone fruit. Lighter in body, but plenty sour.

Bottle share, thank you Steve. Hazy yellow color with a small white head. Fantastic aroma of peach and funk, a little wine barrel. Nice fruity sour flavors with a little zip from the wine barrel treatment. Very fruit forward, but plenty of sour. Really nice.

Sample in less than ideal circumstances Transparant remnant of head, hazy yellow golden beer. Sour peaches, unripe nectarines, green herbs. Lactic and fruit acids. Sharp Very sharp sour flavour, fruit-, lactic- but definitely also acetic acid. Apricots at every new sip, but also a hint at incense. Puckeringly tart, difficult to swallow. Acidthinning and -burn to the extreme. Another one that is all sharpness instead of complexity. Txs to M & L V!

From notes. Enjoyed at Doug’s house for the Epic Peach and Apricot debacle of a tasting that happened on July 9. 750 mL bottle. The pour is a foggy golden orange-ish color with an off white head that falls slowly, leaving a thick ring. This thing is a lacto bomb. There is a nice apricot up front, but then the tart funky lacto sour moves in and I just can’t get past it. The flavor mimics this. There is a tartness up front that the juicy apricot comes into, and then the lacto just sours it up, and controls everything about the finish. The mouth feel is a bit heavier than a lot of the other beers we’d had. The carbonation is a little softer and the apricots are there on the aftertaste with a ton of lacto souring. This one I was heavily disappointed by. I wish there wasn’t so much emphasis on the lacto souring.
