375ml bottle courtesy of the person I trusteed for, thanks buddy. I've heard this beer had diacetyl issues and I'm very sensitive to it. I picked up not a trace of butter in the aroma or flavor so that's good. Color was a slightly hazed orange yellow though I kept the yeast out of the pour, no head at all. Aroma was weird to me, I swear I got a touch of mint or menthol, yeast, and no peaches though my girlfriend said it smelled like dried peaches to her. Flavor was mildly tart, the faintest hint of peaches, and pretty mild. Overall very easy to drink but disappointing considering the reputation of the previous iteration. In fact if I were a reserve member is be sort of upset by the quality of these beers. I know Crooked Stave is capable of producing stellar beers but 95% of their stuff let downs.
