look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

a hazy orangy pour with two fingers of head which diminished quickly into a thin ring. smells wonderfully refreshing.. lots of lacto sourness comes into the nose immediately, definitely getting some peach, lots of wheat, funky bretty notes. ohhh that tastes excellent.. a subtle sourness/tart flavor of lactobacillus and peach combined. not extremely mouth puckering sour or anything - but just enough to bring out the fruit flavor AND the wheat taste. light in body and high carbonation fits the style perfectly.

this is my first beer from sloop, and i'm impressed. this is a wonderful take on the berliner weisse style, and not to be overlooked. i'll have to check out some of their other brews.

Bottle purchased at Half Time Beverages in Poughkeepsie, New York, and shared with Isaac and Will last night.

Pours a golden orange-ish yellow, with a quarter inch fizzy head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells like peaches, lemons, and some dirty sour funk. Smells great.

My usual problem with Berliner is that there isn't a lot of naturally juicy fruit flavor left over, it's just sour and thin. This remedies that wholesomely. Lots of great sour peach flavor, peach skin and peach flesh both, with some hay, lactic acid, lemons, and lots of dirty tasty barnyard funk. It's pretty sour, but not overwhelmingly so, doesn't get old.

This is light bodied, with an airy, spritzy mouthfeel, and a higher amount of carbonation. It's really, really drinkable and quite refreshing, even in November.

This is one of the best beers I've had from New York State. Maybe this batch is better than previous ones, because I feel this deserves a much higher rating than it gets here.

Dan and Emma, big weekend thanks to you guys. Never heard of this beer or this brewery before Friday night.

A- Semi hazy golden orange body to a few pint glasses. A white head rises with a frothy consistency but falls to a tiny ring. The lacing is spotty at best to be honest.

S- Tart fruits off the top with a pretty big peach contingent. Lactic acid and lemony sourness with notes of peach, apricot, dried straw barnyard and citrus.

T- Peach flesh opens up here with a stone fruit feel combining with a funky, tart bug feel to produce the final product. Every sip brings lactic funk, heavy peach and pith notes, tangerine, white grape and just generally funky tones,

MF- Light end bodied with a pretty hefty carbonation. Foamy and puffy overall as the high end carbonation falls on the taste buds. Tart to sour in the finish.

Happy to try this brew as it combines a funky Wild Ale/Sour feel with stone fruits and the obviously added peaches. Thanks again Dan/Emma for this beer. Funky stone fruits overall.

The beer has an aggressive apricot jam or a strange chemical candy peach aroma.

The flavor follows with follows with that strange peach flavor. A nice tartness, and then onto a candy and grainy malt body.

For some reason, the beer just doesn't taste exactly right.
