Thanks ineedbeer. Pours a brownish dusky red color. Darker than expected. Quite cloudy. Little to no head. Absolutely no bubbles after a minute. A bit of chunkiness. Aroma is tart raspberries, underripe stone fruit, vinegar. Fairly acetic. Some vanilla. There's some peach/nectarine sweetness but it's mild. Big acetic note in the taste. Quite sour. Stone fruit, berries and grapes, all very tart. Nothing is terribly well defined. Some malt character knocking around. Quite dry. Tons of pucker. Tiny bit of body. I wish there was more fruit character to this beer. The acetic sourness dominates for me. Still, it's good, just not great.

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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

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.

The beer pours (gushes) a tarnished copper color with generous sediment and a fluffy off-white head. The nose is slightly off-putting at first (out house-esque?), but reveals distinct peach skin and apricot in time. The taste brings forward apricot and funk, a little candi sugar-like sweetness (dominates - especially when colder), and tart, unripened peach/plum in the finish. It has an overly sweet medium body with masked alcohol, muddled fruit characteristics (more defined when warm), minimal carbonation, a semi-sweet finish, and lingering yeast presence. This beer is definitely tasty and a very drinkable sour, but lacks fruit definition and is still a bit sweet for my liking.

Thanks to Skuter for sharing this one at the Revenge Of Instant Replay bottleshare held at Instant Replay in Canoga Park, CA.

Bottle # 337.

Pours a murky orange with a foamy beige head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. No lacing on the drink down. Smell is sour with malt, grain, fruit, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with sour malt, grain, and fruit flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with a nice balance between the sour and fruit aspects all around.
