Quick review from written notes, thanks Joe for sharing!

Murky yellow orange, peachy toned with champagne streamers rising, sheets of soft white foam lace in the glass, end of bottle pour was opaque.

Huge tropical passion fruit aromas and taste, fleshy peach pit, puckering sourness with a nicely dry finish. Light bodied and effervescent. Crisply sour and vibrant. This is a real contender, up there with Temptation to my taste. I could see the dry hop version being pretty interesting, in the same vein of Le Terroir.

Thanks to dunt for sharing this!

White head. Golden orange in color.

Flavor is very sour and funky. A nice grape and wine flavor. A lot of peach and apricot flavors. Funky and fruity. It ends with an odd butterscotch flavor.

Mouthfeel: sour and tart. Lighter bodied.

Overall, this is a really nice sour. Very easy to drink with a lot of awesome fruit flavors. I am a big fan of this one!

A: A pale yellow and hazy body with a very thick and white head.

S: Very good. Very sharp esters and sour aromas. Perfectly balanced with a subtle sweet caramel sweetness.

T: It starts off as a very pleasant sour apple flavor and then it transitions to a perfect sour caramel flavor. This should be a measuring stick for all sour beers.

M: Nice heavy body with a very sharp carbonation.

O: Amazing sour. Get this one as soon as you can.
