I'm not gonna do a traditional review. But let me just say that this is the best sour I've ever had. Aroma is all peaches. Walking through a farmers market. Slight funk but a ton of peach. Flavor is even better. Some tartness, though I do wish for a little more but I'm just nitpicking at this point. Loads of fresh peach flavor. Seriously an amazing beer and glad I got to try it. Great beginner sour as well for anyone not too into sours.

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.
