3.6/5  rDev n/a
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Poured from the bottle into a tasting snifter.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy amber with a mild golden hue. There is just a little head that goes away.

Smell: A bit tart with a hint of wine. Lots of herbal notes with some vinegar as well.

Taste: Quite sweet with a red fruit tartness and vinegar sour note. There are some pleasant light fruity notes as well. The finish is rather tart.

Mouthfeel: The body is a bit syrupy with a very small amount of carbonation.

Overall: I would say this was a solid enough sour beer but it wasn't my favorite. I don't need more in the future. (578 characters)

The beer is orange with a wispy white head. The aroma brings peaches, citrus, brettanomyces, alcohol, oak. The flavor is sharp and acetic, with stone fruit character. Low carbonation with a bit of a burn in the back. Pretty good. (264 characters)

On tap at the Livery last weekend. Served in a short glass. This was blended for their 6th Anniversary party and is a sour amber ale with peaches and nectarines.

Pour was a rusty copper with a very thin off-white head that dissipated almost immediately and didn't leave too much behind. Color was really bright and attractive, though.

The nose starts things off right with a good lactic presence followed up by plenty of stone fruits. Peaches and nectarines, along with some light accompanying sweetness, shine through. Light tropical notes as well. Not much funk and the acidity is predominantly lactic. The flavor consists of the same components, but the sourness takes over a bit too much and doesn't leave enough room for the fruit.

Light-medium body with good carbonation and a nice dry, sour finish. Highly recommended. (834 characters)
