look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Batch 2 poured into Hill Farmstead wine glass. Thanks to cavemanlawyer for hooking me up.

Wonderful golden body with small white rim of head. Aroma is peach, peach jam, pulp, peach preserves. The taste is right in line with the nose, peachy and slight tartness not overly sour. Mouthfeel is smooth and crisp.

Overall a 4.5. Just a femnamenal beer. I could use a touch more carbonation and sourness. Would absolutely trade for again.
