4.25/5 rDev -5.6%
2013 Blend #2. 375ml bottle into CS Teku. Released yesterday, football beer today. Pour reveals almost no head but leaves a thin ring around the glass. Body is beautiful like all CS beers. Cloudy orangeish beige. Aroma is a musty, sweet and sour. Well balanced with a slight burn when you get deep down in there. Brett, not really peachy, and simple. This beer is delicious on the tongue, a lot more peach flavor. Some Brett, but really fruity - an orange/lemon mix. Almost no carbonation and very light in the mouth. A little drying.
Overall it tastes great and well balanced. The nose and lack of carbonation make you want more out of it. Not sure if it is as classic as the first batch, but definitely wouldn't turn it away.

750ml bottle (2011) shared courtesy of rudzud at a recent tasting. Poured into a Sierra Nevada 30th Anniversary glass.
A - Pours a pale peachy golden color. Little to no head with really only a small white collar that rings the glass nicely.
S - Quite sour and tart. Very peachy...lots of fruit flavor to be found here. Nicely funky too with nice barnyard aspects to be found.
T - Tart and sour up front with strong intensity. Very peachy - tons of fruit comes through here. Medium level funkiness.
M - Lighter side of medium bodied with a lower level carbonation that keeps the body a little bit low in liveliness.
O - Intense wild ale...quite tart and sour with super fruitiness with peaches really showing nicely. This was quite delicious.
