750ml courtesy of Shane’s crazy generosity. Consumed on Aug 4th, reviewed from notes.

A: Golden sour with a thin lacing. Good carbonation.

N: oak, peach, cheesy funk. Light lemon. Barnyard. Easy to tell this is going to punch you with sourness.

T: Wow, beautifully tart. Oak, plenty of peach. Nice lactic quality. Lemon, green apple.

M: Dancing and effervescent

O: Moving into new territory of sourness. This is better than a number of Belgian gueuzes if not quite the top tier.

Serving type: bottle

Thanks for sharing this, Matt & CJ. Tasted alongside Veritas 004 and Yellow Bus

Light yellow with a thin white head that recedes to a ring leaving no lace, this looks good. The nose has a very nice and deep peachy aroma. A little bit of sulfur is still noticeable, but it isn't too distracting. The balance between the pale sour and tart and ripe peaches is very nice. The palate opens sour with a great peach character. Bright, fruity and ripe, there's excellent balance between the fruit and sourness. The base sour still does have some acetic/acetone flavors, but thankfully, it's at a fairly low level, and this makes this taste bright rather than harsh or sharp/ Mild sweetness is present, and there's quite a bit of a fruity white wine flavor profile (think Sauvignon Blanc). Excellent stuff.
