Wow - had it on draft at the Falling Rock in Denver. I would like it if they could make sours like this year round, but I'm spoiled I get a lot small batches.

If your a fan of La Folie and can find this get ya some.

Sour - yes but not so much that its anywhere near a vinegar, nicely balanced great mouthfeel. Super darkish, cloudly looking - yes yes yes.

On-tap at Stone Sour Fest

A: The pour is a hazed orange/amber color with a minimal off-white/khaki colored head.

S: I know this beer was dry-hopped, but the amount of hop aroma is quite surprising. Lots of nice citrus from the hops along with some other fruits and acidity from the beer itself.

T: The hops (or at least the citrus character) seemed to translate well to the palate as well. A very juicy fruit character along with a solid bite of sourness and some dry oaky tannins.

M: The body is medium with a fair level of carbonation.

D: One of the best beers at the festival. Really easy to drink, refreshing, and interesting with the dry-hopping treatment.

Enjoyed on-tap @ the Bridge Tap House & Wine Bar in St. Louis, MO for $5. Poured from the Red/White Lips of Faith Tap Handle that has "Peach Felix" written in Black into a 12oz Snifter. New Belgium doesn't have this on their normal/advertised Lips of Faith line-up, so I'm much more interested!

Appearance- Pours a Hazy, Peach/Light Red body with 1 finger of white head. The retention is moderate and stays for quite a while.

Aroma- Tremendous peach aroma with a hint of sour apple. Extremely acidic and has one of the most intense sour smells, I can barely handle it!

Flavor- Has a very pungent sour taste and then a light peach attribute. There is a oaky type of taste that lingers here. Great! Also to note, there is no hop flavor or aromas here.

Mouthfeel- Light Bodied, Sour aftertaste that puckers the lips, and a nice lambic overall!

Overall- Fantastic lambic that puckers at times but has a huge tart/sour taste. Can be considered a Gueuze at times, but the Peach in this brew makes it a American Wild Ale (I suppose). I'm still trying to figure out this style, because everyone one of the beers I've had are fantastic!
