4.16/5  rDev -1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

750ml bottle poured into a guess glass. This bottle is roughly two years old.

A: Pours a sunny golden color with a slight haze. Lively crackling white head dissipates shortly. No lacing to speak of.

S: Tart and acidic. Thinly funky and farmy. Lemony/green apple acidity. Hay. Dusty and musty like an old library. Shortbread. Hint of peach sweetness at its core.

T: Juicy peach is quickly countered with ample tartness. Sour apple and lemon. Peach skin. Layers of mild farmy flavors. Musty like old books, light rustic barnyard. Shortbread. Only the most subtle hint of dusty oak. The interplay of all of these flavors is wonderful, one does not dominate the others. Peachy/tart contrast on the finish.

M: Light bodied. Thin frothy feel. Ample carbonation scrubs firmly but gently.

O: This is really hitting the spot on a humid, muggy night in late spring. It's a very approachable beer: the rustic tastes are not overpowering and the sweet/tart balance is really nailed, making for a very easy and appealing drink. Crushable, even. Even those who are more apprehensive about the sour beer styles should find something they like here.

3.66/5  rDev -12.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Slight haze to an orange body. Nice white head. Thin collar.

Smell - Peach. Intense acidity. Nice peach, but it does smell very acidic.

Taste - It's pretty sour. It still retains a nice peach flavor, though. Oaky. Sweet peach before the sourness takes over. Not acetic, but it isn't a light sourness.

Mouthfeel - Medium low carbonation. Very sour without being over-sour.

Overall - It's all peach and sourness, but that isn't a bad thing.

4.13/5  rDev -1.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A: Crystal clear light golden body with a small, fizzy white head that recedes to a small ring quickly. Standard for an AWA.

S: Peach flesh and lemon zest. A hint of cinnamon and carmelized sugar emerges as it opens up, possibly from the oak? Smells like super tart peach cobbler. Very interesting.

T: Peach skins followed by acidic peach flesh and a bit of vinegar. Tart, but not overly so. A bit monotone in regards to variety of flavor profiles, but still manages to maintain a very pleasant depth of flavor with multiple peach notes.

M: Thin and crisp, with fizzy carbonation and a light texture. Very drinkable.

O: Great easy drinking sour, and a great showcase of peach flavor without the cloying sweetness present in so many beers with peach added. Would definitely grab this one again if it wasn't so hard to come by.
