A- Pours a beautiful and hazy light gold in color. A small, fizzy head forms but doesn't stick around too long before leaving a small amount of lacing.
S- Moderate to strong tartness up front with some fruitiness in the back. Peaches are fairly prominent in the fruitiness to go along with the sourness. There is just a touch of the brandy flavor behind the tartness and peach scents.
T- Starts with a moderate bang on tart sour flavor. Sourness is mostly citrusy in taste before the peach juiciness kicks in. Peaches make their presence known with a big blast of juiciness right after the initial sourness, before they themselves start contributing to the tart flavor. Just a touch of some darker fruits in the brandy towards the end of the drink before the lingering tartness sticks around on your tongue.
M- Light and highly carbonated, this beer is pretty thirst quenching overall. The tartness is the only restriction on drinkability here, but overall, this is more of a juicy than tart beer.
Overall, a terrific beer. I would have liked the brandy barrel to be more prominent, but the sourness and peaches are spot on.
