3.81/5 rDev -15.5%
750ml corked and caged bottle into Mikkeller stemware. Reviewed at a tasting 5/3/14.
Pours super carbed (surprise!) with a huge white head and spotty and sparse lace. Beer is a slightly cloudy orange. Average.
Nose is tart peach, mango, citrus and a light Brett presence. Surprisingly mellow but balanced. Nice.
Opens tart peach, oak and Brett funk. Big fruit notes in the middle with more wood, cobwebs and funk. Ends subtly as the fruit presence just fades out. Spritzy tartness in the aftertaste. Solid.
Light bodied with ample carbonation. Tart, crisp and dry in the mouth and goes down dry and filmy. Bone dry finish with a lingering, puckering aftertaste. Really good.
As a peach sour made by Lost Abbey, this is no Yellow Bus... but its still a very good beer. Pretty straightforward flavor profile with clean execution. Certainly worth trying.

3.93/5 rDev -12.9%
750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Hazy deep orange body. Nice white head and a medium collar.
Smell - Very intense acidity, but it still has a nice aroma of peaches and nectarines. Light grain.
Taste - Really sour. Masks some flavors. Wood is strong, as are the stone fruit flavors. The sourness is most intense up front and then mellows. Grainy finish.
Mouthfeel - Medium carbonation. The sourness doesn't seem as intense as it warms, but it still overwhelms the flavors.
Overall - Nice fruit. It's not very complex, but it's tasty.
