Had a couple pints (honest pints) of this on tap at Belmont Station during Puckerfest over the span of a couple days. Bottles to go? Yes indeed. Review done on one of those bottles. Split with TulipSnifter in my Parra and Myers Duvel tulips.

A: Pale slightly hazy apricot body with a big fluffy white head. The head sticks around for a while and leaves lots of clumpy lacing as it recedes. Great looking beer. 5/5

S: Gin, gin, gin, tartness. Botanicals galore makes for a very unique beer. 4/5

T: Again with the gin up front and the unique juniper from the Old Tom style. I’ve got wood… From the barrel’s, get your mind out of the gutter. An honest sourness hits the pucker spots at the back of the cheeks. Floral, mineral, and citrus sums things up. 4/5

M: Thin, crisp, clean. 4/5

O: A good beer to be sure. Upright delivers another one with its anniversary offering for Belmont. Of note, the Upright 1st Anniversary beer was also on tap at Puckerfest. That was also a sour aged in gin barrels. The gin had dropped off dramatically on that one and was no longer interesting. If that is the direction this trends, I would not recommend extended aging. 4/5

A - Hazy golden orange with a small white head

S - Sweet peach balanced with sour lactic acid

T - Sweet peach up front and then tart lactic acid. In the finish, lots of tart lactic acid and sweetness that comes through to make this a well balanced peach sour. Not much funk.

M - Tart carbonation, lots of fizz. Dry finish

O - Really good balance between the peach and the tartness. Really a solid beer

Shared by Wy on his bday!

Yellow body with white head. Sulfuric aroma; pungent yeast imparts intense clove and fruit esters. Can't say I enjoy this aroma, though I don't dislike it either.

Citrus fruit, funky yeast, huge ester presence again. Lots of lacto, mild acetic tingle. A bit too much carbonation; good body though. A strange brew for sure, and I happen to like this one.
