Tap @ Grain and Gristle... Poured hazy, golden orange with a white head. This is the stuff dreams are made of. Nice floral tones, perfume-y apricot with dried yeast, wood, funk, and tartness.

Bottle @ Crooked Stave ROY-G-BIV Day, shared by a generous dude. Thanks! Pour is hazy orange with a big white head and great lacing. Huge peachy, apricot aroma - oak, light spice, tannin, straw, somewhat doughy, lemony, and zesty. Taste is big sour peaches, apricots, lemon zest, somewhat peppery, and fruity with a big sour finish, yet smooth and refreshing. Medium body with soft carbonation. Seriously tasty sour!

Bottle 24/120 courtesy of James at a tasting at his place. Pours a lightly hazed golden amber with a thin white head. Bright dusty dried apricots on the nose, soft funky acid and tartness. Apricot and soft musk, toast and sweet acid. A touch of acid and nutty acetone. Smooth and delicious. Apricot on here is tasty. Very, very tasty. blipp (9374) - La Mesa, California, USA - MAY 27, 2012
Bottle. Pours hazy orange with a white head. Light tart aroma with fruity apricot and white grapes. The flavor has tart and fruity sweet apricot, funky yeast, white grapes and a quick tart and dry finish. Great balance of sweetness and tartness and a very tasty addition of apricots. Good stuff.

In short: A rustic, oaky, dry and apricots-fruity ale. Highly drinkable and complex. Lovely.arminjewell (9688) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 6, 2015
How: Bottle 750ml. One sent to me by julian and another one by mcberko, thanks guys. This rating for the bottle sent from julian, an ealier (first?) release, one year of age?, bottle #91 of 120.
The look: Cloudy shining peach color body topped by a persistent small white head.
In long: Nose has a bright wild yeast character, dry freshly cut oak, apricots. Taste is very clean for the style. Nice fresh fruits (obviously apricots upfront but also mangos, goseberries, peaches, and even some bananas). Dry oak. Very nice bright and clean wild yeast (pedio-ish I think). Strong rustic sensation. Very high attenuation. Low sourness sensation, this is definitely more a wild-rustic ale than a sour ale. Fun foamy and very lively mouthfeel. Not many so-called sour ale I can describe as sessionnable but this is one I could drink gallons of, I went down my 750ml bottle like it was a session Saison. I think there would be a lot more divorces if all beers were that good and if internet browsers did not have a clear history button.
Pour out of 750 mL bottle, hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of big peach, vanilla, apricot into a bit of wood, funk, slight musty, basement notes with a hint of oak, some slight white fruits. Taste was a mix of white grape, oak, wood into a bit of apricot, peach into a bit of lemon, some slight funky, yeasty notes, finishing tart, slightly sweet.

750mL at Woodshop 7. Pours a low haze peach juice with large head formation. Nose is sweet peach, honey, sugar, sea salt, mild fresh brine and nectar fruit skins. Taste is bitter peach skin, peach juice, lemon pulp, and big peach cobbler dessert. Palate is clean, dry, fruity. Soft. Another winner from Upright.
