750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Murky orange. Lots of haze and sediment. Nice white head. Medium collar.

Smell - Bright acidity. Grainy. Peaches blend in nicely. Might even detect some rye there.

Taste - Peaches are much more prominent. Peach nectar flavor that gets stronger throughout. Oakier in the taste than the nose. Lots of vanilla. Peach juice in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Pretty sour. Not the cleanest of sours, but nice. High carbonation.

Overall - Not often I enjoy a Bruery sour. This is really excellent. Delicious peach flavor.

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.

Gusher! The beers hazy yellow with a small head. The aroma brings a heap of peaches. Fresh, sweet, tart, lactic and brett notes. Beautiful flavor. Peaches away out out front with some natural sweetness from the fruit countered by present acidity and lactic character. Puckering finish. Peach skins and oak. Wonderful. In fact, this is redondo, though not quite racemosa nest. Cheers Joe!

This is peachskin, this lovely Tuesday Rindos that you Fortunato Brad racemosa nest. Definitely some like doozies suffering, mineraly Ness, bananas Redonda BOKF - what is RCF? Oh yeah he was once beat.

In sum, loads of peaches make poetry in my mouth. Like eating peaches aged in sulfury barrels. Delicious, delicious Redondo. Recommend.
