3.75/5 rDev -13.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Bottle: Poured a cloudy orangey color ale with a medium size white head with ok retention and some light lacing. Aroma of light fruit notes with some tart notes that are easily discernible. Taste is a mix between some light apricot notes with some tart notes with a light funky finish. Body is somewhat full with good carbonation. I must admit that my expectation were quite high but this seems to lack the complexity I was anticipating.

4.21/5 rDev -3%

this is a delicious beer, not as sour as a lambic, and a little more body to it, but in that same flavor family. the pour is pale as they come, washed out straw color with a tall inch of white creamy head. the peaches aren't as prevalent in the nose as they are in the taste, but what is in the aroma is a very cool wild yeast, a heavy oak profile sweet and mellow, and a blossoming fruity element, although not specifically peach. the taste tarts out a little pucker but softens quickly into a peachy sweetness supported by pale malt and a very dry yeasty finish with a faint hint of white pepper or some other delicate spice used tastefully in moderation. the peaches are not dominant, but accentuate the beer well. fuller bodied and rounder for such a light offering, expansive, and fuzzy on the tongue almost like the outside of the peaches themselves. not very well carbonated, but it really doesn't demand that, the peaches make the feel unique and delicate, while being full enough to hold up all the flavors. i would use maybe touch more peach in nose and taste here, but the subtlety is noted and appreciated. excellent beer, the best I've had from upright by quite a margin.
