This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

A Blended Belgian-style beer aged in wine barrels with white peaches and apricots added. Delightfully tart and fruity, complex from the unique mix of wild yeast and helpful bacteria, a beer for sipping.

Smell was actually 6 out of 5. Best smelling beer I've ever had. And the best sour beer I've ever had so far. Yup. The hype really is real. I didn't spend $400 on the bottle, had an opportunity to try it thanks to one amazing BA, so there is no overrating factor included. The beer really is just this good. I need another one for sure!

Worth the hype. Tastes like the child of Fuzzy and New Glarus Wild Peach. Less acid than Fuzzy but still a great sour note + the wonderful fresh peach notes from NG Wild Peach.

Is this a great beer? Yes. Is it over-hyped? Yes. Lost out at tonight's tasting to a $10 bottle of De Garde Imperial Apricot Bu.

Easily the Best beer i've ever had period. I don't know what else to say. I've tried many peach / apricot sours and this one just slams the rest down. Closest would be Side Project Fuzzy.

The nose is all peach and ripe apricots and you know it actually tastes similar to what it smells like. I can put my nose to this snifter all day. When it warms up the funky zesty character comes out shinning. The carb level is perfect.

I wish I can have a fridge full of this winner. If you happen to get a chance to grab one of these babies.
