On tap for the Bruery Initiation Celebration held at The Phoenix Club in Anaheim, CA.

Pours a murky orange with a foamy beige head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is sour and tart with lots of peach and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with a very nice sour peach flavor on the finish. There is a medium amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp and prickly mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with a fantastic smell and really tasty flavors.

Shared with Rudzud as our HS membership says.

Small fizzy head fades at a med pace light lacing, very murky like solid color orange juice kinda thing tangerine orange color.

Nose brings peach flesh right off, like squishy fleshy peach and even a little nectarine citrusy like, faint bready malt, just a touch of passion fruit juice, touch of a tangerine passion fruit peach orange juice blend.

Taste brings more peach but not a lot, again that fleshy chewy stringy white peach like flavor, more juicy fruit like a def tangerine flavor, light citrus as well. Some tartness but not nearly like sour in the rye, a sour peach fruit. Light bready malts, and a nice spicy rye coming through a lot more than original sour in the rye. Light bready funk and wild Brett flavors but not a lot. Light acetic acid bite. Finish is drier but sticky and flemmy, lingering sour peach and fleshy peach, light bready funk, nice spicy rye, hint if tangerine juice lingering as well.

Mouth is med to lighter bod, lots of fluffy carb that even gets a bit sharp, some tart acidic bite.

Overall a decent beer but original sour in the rye is better. The peach is nice in the flavor but still muted and lighter overall in the aroma, lighter on the tart fruit and sourness, and almost no barrel, but the rye comes out a bit nicely, and the carb gets a bit too much. As far as peach beers this is not quite up there, Filmishmish was better IMO.

At the time of this review, this is #15 on the "Top Beers - American Wild Ale" list on beeradvocate.com. Holy sour Batman, served in a Bruery tulip because I can.

Beer is light amber and hazy with a nice white head, low retention, some lacing.

Aroma is sour sour sour with some fruitness...peaches sneaking through.

Beer is light in body and sour sour sour. The sourness is really pronounced and sort of eclipses everything else going on in there. The peaches sneak through....it is a good beer though I enjoyed it and will have it again.

750ml bottle poured into a matching Bruery snifter. The brew appears a hazed golden orange color with a 3 finger white cap. A swirl revives a finger of yellowish stained offwhite back to the surface and patches of lace cling.

The smell is typical sour in the rye with funk nfs lactic lemony character but a significantly bigger amount of earthy to juicy fruit like peach/apricots. There is an overall big tropical punch almost like pineapple also included in the nose.

The flavor is lactic and lemony tart with plenty of peach that seems more like apricot than anything else. There is also plenty of wild tart fruit flavors with a bit of musty oak that blends into peach skins/pith towards the finish.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. A little bit of kiss of alcohol comes into play with the tartness. I am a big fan of sour in the rye and this fruit addition really delivered as expected. Very nicely done. I had zero issues drinking this 750 myself and probably would have reached for more. As you get towards the bottom of the bottle, the yeast gets a little stringy and fiberous almost like macerated peaches were added directly to the bottle.
