From the absolutely awesome experience of proving yourself worthy of a hoarder membership in order to buy the beer, to the sad wistful gazes of others in the tasting room, to the sublimely rare flavors and aromas, everything about this beer screams "TWO PERCENT'ER!"

It looks likes something you couldn't buy unless you were part of the privileged elite. It smells like something only a rarefied pair of nostrils would be able to appreciate. And it tastes like pure refinement and exclusivity in liquid form. It glows softly with sociological advancement.

Peaches are surprisingly forward and well integrated. Better integrated than many of the more esoteric Bruery sour-y offerings, and considering its rarity it's a damn shame that it is one of the more welcoming/gentle introductions to sour beers I can recall. The base beer shines through mostly in the acidic, slightly musty back end as the fruit is very forward on the front end. Nice bubbling.

I broke my reviewing embargo for this one.

Poured from a 25 oz bottle into a Bruery snifter. Acquired as a generous extra in a trade with vitese. Thank you sir!

A- Pours a very cloudy orange-yellow body with an effervescent white head that reduces quickly and leaves no lacing.

S- SUPER fruity and fresh, like walking through a fruit farm! Freshly squeezed peaches, watermelon, tropical fruits, sour apples, tart citrus, lactic, and some oak. Very inviting.

T- That's what I'm talking about. Upfront is a huge punch of mouth-puckering sourness, like lemon juice, super sour lemonade, and unripe tart fruits. Next up is juicy peaches, plums, passion fruit. On the finish is a slight rye zing and vanilla presumably from the oak. Very nice.

M- Medium-light, refreshing body, medium carbonation.

Just like Oude Tart with cherries, the Bruery took one of their world-class sours and kicked it up a notch, elevating the taste and complexity which really makes this beer stand out. It may be hard to find, but seek it out of possible!
