Big thanks to Thorpe429 for hooking this up

Color: A vibrant golden/orange with a thin white head that recedes quickly. No lacing or head retention to speak of.

Nose: Peaches! More and more peaches! Light oak rises from the glass as it warm, a soft sweetness is paired with an inviting sourness. I also get some light white wine textures.

Palate: Very drinkable. The abv is well masked throughout the beer making the peach profile in this beer shine. The beer is sour/tart, but not to point were it makes your mouth pucker. Very fruit forward with waves of oak and vinous qualities, but these are just sort of floating in the background.

Finish: Simple, fruity, and mildly dry. Great peach flavor all the way through, but the complexity lacks on the back end of this beer. Still a quality sour with a lot of excellent textures and body

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.
