Bottle: Poured a clear light amber color ale with a nice large foamy head with good retention and some great lacing. Aroma of fruity notes of peaches and mango with light tart undertones is quite unique. Taste is quite unique with subtle fruity notes of mango and peaches with very nice fruity ester with some well balanced tart notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. It is a wonder the aroma that was created using hops; this is definitely a beer I will seek again.

This poured out as a slightly hazy copper orange color with a soapy white head. Very scattered lacing and thin retention. The smell of the beer is earthy, slightly tart, some cherry notes and oak. The taste of the beer is very tart, far more sour than all the other "sour" ales that New Belgium makes. There is more cherry in the flavor with some vinegar. The mouthfeel is pretty good, drinkable and light bodied nice carbonation. Overall this beer is good, the hops have faded but the sour notes are what seem to me as their peak. Really nice beer.
