Date: 11/13/14
Location: Captain Lawrence Brewery
Draught/Bottle: Bottle
Glassware: Snifter

Appearance: Yellow/Gold in color, very clear and easy to see through letting lots of light in. Big fluffy carbonated head with decent cling and outstanding retention that last well over a few minutes.
Aroma: The peach is juicy and fairly detectable in the front. It's aroma is quickly pushed back by the souring yeast. Some ethanol, bandaid aromas. Which makes my mouth water just from the aroma. The barreling comes in next with a strong aroma of oak.
Taste: This beer needs to be sipped. Too much and my palate gets overrun. The peach really holds it's own during tasting and along with some lemon/lime flavor really adds it's own tartness to the beer. The tartness really builds from there with the yeast flavors, which is leathery. The alcohol adds a touch of ethanol flavoring and along with the oak gives Flaming Fury a clean taste.
Mouthfeel: Medium body that is tart and puckering. A fair bit of dryness begins in the middle but doesn't make it very far into the finish. My mouth is left with that tart juicy feeling. High carbonation really moves the tartness around and can be overpowering if you doing watch it.

Notes: From the Whip it Out Wednesday Bottle Release. For more balance let if warm up. 2014.

Batch 2 into a HF Stemmed Tulip

A: The color is a light, but murky shade of gold. The pour yielded about two fingers of fluffy head that receded to a few cms that ringed the walls of the glass.

S: The aroma is very fruity; peach is apparent in the forefront. Light funky notes, along with a lactic brightness.

T: The taste opens with ripe/juicy peaches that is cut with a soft to moderate lemony tartness, and rounded out by mellow notes from the barrel.

M: Soft carbonation, light to medium body and dry.

O: This beer has been on my radar for quite sometime. Luckily I was off on Wednesday and took up the opportunity to attend the release (which was very mellow). The beer is nuanced, balanced and complex. Overall, this beer exceeded my expectations. It is simply fantastic.

Enormous gratitude goes to BA Facesnorth for generously gifting me with a fresh bottle of this newly released batch 2. This has been a long time want of mine and getting to try the newest batch fresh has my expectations set very high. The brew appears a clear golden peachy color when poured into a matching captain lawrence cervoise. A white frothy topping rests atop leaving stringy lace. A light swirl revives a finger back to the surface.

The aroma is fruity and floral with a minor bacterial tropical feel. A hint towards phenolic and plastic-like at times. Some lactic notes are somewhat lemony and yogurt-like. Plenty of funk across the back with a pitted peachy/apricot note. It gets mildly grassy with some stinky cheese as it warms.

The taste is sharply sour with a strong pucker factor. Some lemony lacto and greek yogurt tartness lead the way with a wheat grain presence felt before the fruity/floral peach and apricot notes evolve. Some oak tannins and barrel character are strong in the finish with some alcohol becoming increasingly noticeable as it warms up.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. Quite sour, complex and very enjoyable. This was everything I had hoped/expected it to be. Thank you again Ryan.

Pour is transparent golden yellow with a good bit of tight white head. Nose has a fair bit of peach, acetone, acetic acid, light bitter oak. Taste has a fair bit of peach fruitiness, moderate acidity, faint acetone, notes of acetic acid in the finish. Lighter body, strong carbonation, semi dry finish. Peaches are fairly bright up front, gets a little hot.
