App- Right out of the bottle, this has a nice color with a deep gold and orange color to it. The darker color lends itself to more of a style that I dont get from the base beer. Looks more like a DIPA to me, but the head that was there and gone with only about 1" of head. The more I swirl,the more it takes on a pancake batter head. A little foam and from. A ring remains after each swirl. No cling though.

Smell- I like the smell of this beer. I have always like the smell of SITR, but this was a bit too acidic and this is in the middle of the base beer and the addition of the Peaches creates a nice balance between citrus rind, flaked rye and a little oak.

Taste- This was more of a enamel stripping version of Kumquats. The citrus was more prevalent but still retained more of the base version with tart, acid, rye and oak. I couldnt finish this peach version and this was worse than expected. When it warmed more of the rye did come out. The ABV is quite hidden but once you get to the 2nd glass, its there, similar to the other two versions.

Mouth- A semi medium body with at times a little bit of lightness to it. A good medium carbonation was there, with a solid residual flavor of the fruit and rye IMO. I liked that at times it was a bit creamy and brought that head into play.

Drink- I think this one is the bottom of the 3 in terms of bottles of SITR. This lacked balance and wasnt layered than the other two and was cloyingly sweet and overtly acidic and a drain pour of the last 1/4 bottle.

Thank you, Abraham!

A hazy cloudy peachy yellow with a dense off-white head with good retention and minimal lacing, this beer looks good. The nose is solid. Initially sulfury, especially when cold, this beer takes on a pronounced semi ripe peach juice aroma to go with the rye spiciness. Sourness is quite lactic. The base beer, one I'm not wholly familiar with, is quite decently expressed with rye, caraway and a little allspice. Solid.

The palate opens sour with raw peaches, lactic acid and an intense period sourness. Peach juice flavor permeates the palate quite nicely, really complementing the spicy sourness. The sulfur thats present on the nose is absent from the palate, especially after it has a chance to breathe. A touch of burn, faintly solvent like, is also present. Medium in body and moderately carbonated , this beer is fruity and soir on the finish. Very nice.
