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.
