Bottle into a Bruery snifter. The first bottle I opened was fresh out of the shipping box so it was very hazy and though I enjoyed it quite a bit, I longed for a clear pour without intermingled dregs. I've let this bottle settle for a couple months so hopefully this finally settled.

A: Nice clear pour with a dark orange color and a big frothy white head. Great color.

S: Big lactic peach character with notes of apricot, tartness, vanilla, and oak. Vinegar is light. The fruit smells very nice. Slightly musty.

T: Beautifully sweet and tart with a monstrous peach presence. Soft lactic notes throughout with just a whisper of acetic character. The stone fruit is surprisingly intense. It's like peach and apricot SweeTarts with oak and vanilla. A little more vinegar in the finish with a burst of sour fruit that lingers after everything else fades.

M: Lower medium body with a nice level of upper medium to lower high spritzy carbonation.

Overall: Easily one of the best sour beers from The Bruery, if not the best. I hope this is indicative of where their sour program is headed. After the first clear pour the carbonation shot up all the dregs and it was really cloudy again. I think I'll pour the whole bottle into another vessel next time and not give the dregs a chance to rise.
