750mL bottle shared at tasting. Reviewed from notes.

Golden orange, bright and glowing with a rapidly diminishing white head. Vigorous bead.

Zingy and vibrant peach lending a subtle sweet edge to the solid base notes of light dusty funk and mellow lemony tartness.

Quite a bit sourer than expected, although still manageabley so. There's a unique sweet and sour twang from the peach that integrates very well with the base beer.

Lovely mouthfel. Buzzy, lively acidity, silky carbonation and dreamy tartness.

Excellent treatment of a very smart base beer. The peach fits like lock and key.

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.
