I believe this to be a case where the scores on BA are deceiving. This is a unique sour that I would recommend to seek. The bubbles were so excited to get out that they jumped onto to my kitchen floor. This is a hazard of wild ales. The ale was poured into a tulip as a nice yellow color. The aroma was the least pleasing part of the beer. Vinegary like most sours, the aroma also resembled a mediciny peach. On the initial taste, one gets the acidity of a sour, bubbly peach, woody bourbon, and a mild hint of something like diet cola. The tea notes are also present. In the aftertaste, one detects a tart apple acidity. I thought the texture was a little thick for a wild. Based on the carbonation exploding from the bottle, this is fairly surprising. The benefit of this is that extra staying power is gives to the taste. Overall, I thought this beer is quite nice and apparently victimized by bad reviews.

From Blind Bif 8. Bottle marked <8% and poured into my rinsed out snifter. Once more into the brink!

Poured pale, pale cloudy yellow. Looks like lemon juice. No real lasting head. Damn this looks like lemonade. (4)

I smelled the bottle before pouring and audibly proclaimed “What the fuck!” Smells sour and funky and delicious. Thinking this is a Berliner Weisse from smell and appearance. It’s got a lot of vinegar and also lemon/citrus. It also smells like sugar, not just sweet, actual sugar. (4)

Oh man. This is sweeet, but also sour. Like odd lemonade that is presumably alcoholic. Although I guess 0 is < 8%, which is the only clue I have to go on. There is some slight wheat at the back end, which makes me again assume Berliner Weisse. The sweetness of it is kind of unusual though, I haven’t had an unfruited Berliner this sweet. I’m not sure there’s any fruit in here, though, unless it is lemon. I love me some lemonade though. Should have started with this today, great way to beat the heat (4.25).

Smooth, but with a little carbonation prickle. Light and nice and simple. (4)

It doesn’t quite taste like a Berliner, mostly because of the sweetness. It really just tastes like lemonade, heavy on the sugar, fermented as a beer. As a fan of sweet, but also sour beers, I’m a fan. Damn this is sour though. Not sure most people would like this. (3.75)

This is a 22oz bomber. I haven’t had Oarsman from Bell’s, so I was leaning towards that, but that only comes in 12oz from what I can see. I think New Glarus Berliner Weisse, another Midwest brew, is 12oz too. I don’t know any other Midwest Berliners… so stumped again. Damn you Abraxel.

The reveal…holy shit! From Unity Vibration, this is their Bourbon Peach Kombucha beer! I don’t think I’ve ever had Kombucha before, so that definitely was a hindrance in picking out that flavor, haha. What an interesting beer. I don’t get much bourbon, even after knowing it’s there. Maybe it contributes to the sweetness, certainly the alcohol content. That 7% was a bit surprising! Peach I can get behind, although it’s a very citrusy peachiness, since there’s a definite wild sourness component, but I can pick it out now. It’s like a peach iced tea with citric acid poured into it. Thank you, Abraxel for this great blind choice!

22oz bottle split and poured into a tulip. Best by 04/23/14.

A: Pours a hazy light straw yellow with no head. Leaves a lot of bubbles on the sides. No real lacing.

S: Sweet blend of bourbon and peach. Has a sour aspect to it as well with a fruity Brett yeast characteristic. Mild in most departments, peach is the strongest on the nose. Almost an oakiness.

T: Quite a complex flavor going o here. Obvious peach, bourbon gives you a kick, and sour brings up the rear. There is a lot of sweetness as well. Sort of reminds me of a flavored malt liquor mixed with a tasty sour beer.

M: Light body with pretty high carbonation. A bit of stickiness to it from all the sweetness. Very crisp yet certainly a sipper.

Overall an enjoyable beer that is definitely worth a try. Not sure if the bourbon compliments the sour aspect of this beer but i enjoy the approach.
