Pours a deep golden orange with a small head that recedes to a thin ring around the glass. This particular bottle, just driven from it's home in Seattle to the Bay Area, is hazy, the last one was beautifully clear.
Smells amazing. Super ripe and tangy peaches and
Nectarines are dominant. Perhaps a hint of raspberries as well. Not particularly complex, but just so damn delicious. Fresh fruit all the way.
Intense sourness hits the tongue first, and burns all the way down. Mmm. Soft vanilla and oak linger long after the first sip. Definite acetic twang, bringing out the nectarine flavor. This is definitely a Lost Abbey sour.
Leaves your mouth feeling like you just ate a big ol peach, coated from the sweet tangy fruit character. Nice dense carbonation, ad soft oaky tannins barely there as you enjoy.
I have had this 5 or so times now, and have loved it every time. Not the most complex stuff, no real depth of funk, but, again, the fresh fruit character they manage to evoke in beers like this, Isabelle, and Cable Car is always impressive.

I've had this beer so many times and just realized I've never reviewed it. It's my all time favorite and I'm glad I still have a few left.
Beautiful golden pour with nice white head. Smells delicious! Tart, sour, a little funk and sweetness. Tastes amazing, a little sweet then a nice sour pucker and funk on the finish. A nice balance that keeps evolving with time.
Great mouthfeel. I found this beer had a lot of body when I first tried it and I knew it would age well, as the years pass the body is thinning but it still has so many years to go.
Overall an amazing beer, definitely the best American Wild ale I've ever had. Still has plenty of body and I honestly don't even think it's peeked yet.
