Bottle poured dark hazy orange color,

Smell of candied peach, sweet juice and citrus

Flavor of peach e o's, candy, metal with a tart finish.

Light carbonation, clean finish

Overall, not great, needs time to develop. Has a lot of potential, but was a bit disappointed

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy pale orange. No head. Just a thin white collar.

Smell - Nice peach aroma. Slightly acidic. Light graininess. Mild brett, but more of a lactic acidity.

Taste - Bright tartness. Peach isn't as... peachy. Lemony tartness. Grain. Clean lactic sour finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium light. Pleasantly light and drinkable.

Overall - This is a far cry from how I remember the original Persica, but it's still very good.

Bright peach like coloring yielded a fizzy, bubbly but lively head.

The aroma was of sweet buttered popcorn, a caramel malt and then peaches and apricots. Not a typical blend but very easy on the nose.

The flavor held some sour tartness with a lemony cream, sweet caramel and toffee notes and a creamy butterscotch that had rich candies written all over it.

The feel was snappy and alive with the the high champagne like bubbling but it had a easy fullness.

I will admit that I'm a sucker for creamy caramel and butterscotch flavors and then to blend it well with a tart lemon, bravo!
