375ml bottle poured into Captain Lawrence taster glass. Released in '09 with ~800 bottle count. Thanks Joe (ineedabeerhere) for trading me this bottle to bring it to a tasting a week later. Consumed side-by-side with '12 Fou' Foune.

A- Pours a translucent yellowish orange color, fairly vibrant but very minimal carbonation or head.

S- Peach skin, peach flesh, acetic acid, a very faint touch of acetic acetone. Fairly aromatic, barely any oxidation, and still plenty of fruit for being almost five years old.

T- Sour peaches, peach skin, peach juice, light acetic acid (not anywhere near as close as I thought there would be). A little bit one-dimensional at this point however it has held up considerably well for it's age. Still has a very nice peach presence, much more then the Fou' which was less then half it's age.

M- I was expecting an acid bomb however this was quite drinkable, fairly minimal carbonation but I didn't mind too much, finished extremely smooth without hardly any alcohol detection. For a peach sour being 5 years old the mouthfeel on this has held up incredibly well, the only thing I can default it on is the lack of carbonation.

O- I wasn't quite sure what to expect of this, I've heard reports that this has turned into an acid bomb. At this point though it probably primarily depends upon how it was cellared, and luckily this seemed to be cellared very well. There was way more peach then I was expecting and despite the carbonation being fairly lacking this was still quite drinkable. This is without a doubt still worth trading for if it's been cellared properly and one of the best peach sours I've had.
