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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

750ml 2013 bottle served in a wine glass.

Appearance: Pours a light golden orange color with less than a finger of a white head that dissipates very quickly to a thin ring. Body is very hazy, but still translucent with some light visible carbonation.

Smell: Super oaky, with fresh peaches, lemon and orange like citrus, grassy, light tropical fruit notes with some mild wet hay.

Taste: Fresh peaches, oak, lactic acid, touch of white grape and a very very mild funk. Relatively strong acidic sourness as well that carries through from start to finish.

Mouthfeel: Light and crisp with medium high carbonation and a sour, dry finish. Really refreshing.

Overall: Really nice sour wild ale. Lots of oak an peach character and a nice strong sourness. I would get this again.

A really good sour ale, but I wish it packed a little more peach flavor. I was really struggling to find any peach. Poured a pale straw, a nice bright, white, 1 finger of head. Can smell the sourness coming off of this. A slight wet hay. Huge punch of tart right up front! Then fades into almost nothing. Finished dry and really invited me to take another sip. This was really excellent, besides the lack of peach flavor.

4.11/5  rDev -2.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: The beer is clear yellow in color and has a slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a short white head that quickly died down, leaving a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate to strong aromas of stinky cheese and spoiled fruit are present in the nose. The foul smelling odors begin to dissipate as the beer warms up.
T: The overall taste is very sour and has notes of peaches towards the finish.
M: It feels light-bodied and tart on the palate and has a low to moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer has an awful smell but a pleasant taste. This is one of the few beers where serving it in a snifter glass does a disservice to the beer. It's not a beer as long as you can ignore the smell. A pint glass would probably be the best option to drink this in.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours quite effervescent with very short lived head that recedes as fast as it appeared. Hazy golden straw color.

Aroma is nice and tart with sweet peaches. Funk is there as well.

Taste is big ripe peaches. Sweet tart candies. Sour funk.

Not quite a lush as I would like on the mouthfeel.

Nice beer. Would love this at $15 for a 750 rather than $20.

Date: 4/5/4
Location: Half a Time Mamaroneck
Glassware: Tulip
Appearance: Orange in color. Takes in lots of light and is see through. Pours with a very large head that dissipates quickly. No carbonation on top but a small viscous head that does not cling yo the sides.
Aromatics: The sour yeast is very strong and tart. The peach smell comes through with some dry hay. As the beer warms it builds must.
Flavor: Very tart and musty. Lots of peach flavors. The acids are very strong as well. Very light oak.
Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel is very acidic and causes the mouth to water. There is a medium oiliness that keeps the tart flavor on the tongue.

Bottle pour at the tasting at la casa de dirtinabottle.

Pours a murky orange, with a half inch fizzy head and not much lacing.

Smells incredible, fresh peaches- peach juice, peach flesh, with lots of sour aromas as well.

The taste is quite sour. However, it is highly carbonated and fizzy, which blocks out a lot of the sourness. The peach flavor is great, but slightly more subdued in the taste than in the flavor. The sour peach flavor stays on your mouth and lips the whole session.

Light to medium bodied, crisp mouthfeel, highly carbonated.

Starting to get more into sours, this was nice.
