Bottle generously shared by rado. Thanks.
A: Pours a slightly hazed pale yellow with a few white bubbles drifting around and clinging to the rim, no lace.
N: Fresh peaches (fuzz, skin, and juice) present themselves along with a faint tartness, vinous and oaky notes.
T: Tart peaches, a bit of nectarine, can't detect the apricot, but fruity and faintly tannic bite.
M: Moderate body and light carbonation. Finishes tart and fruity.
O: Lack of carbonation is made up for in the aroma. The tart acidity feels prickly like a fine bubbly.

500ml bottle, courtesy of Brian. Thanks a lot for the trade man! Poured into a Hill Farmstead stemmed glass today, 2/11/2014.
App- Pours a hazy orange, perhaps peach juice-coloured body with a small less than 1cm white head that dissipates quickly. No lacing. Pretty placid peach juice, really.
Smell- Tons and tons of fresh peach. No real indication of apricot. Also a lot of rubber, funk and almost popcorn like butter. Strong as heck and very unique.
Flavour- Peaches dominate. Sour peaches. About 6/10 sour, mouthpuckering and quite fruity. Again no real indication of apricots to set aside from the peaches. Again, this is an extreme peach bomb with a very strong peach juice aftertaste.. there is a lot of "dirtiness", like burned rubber or molding trash, in this beer as well, which is a bit off-putting despite the peachiness of the beer.
Mouthfeel- Medium bodied, a bit of a sipper due to the strength of the peach flavour as well as the sourness. Nice and dry, might even be a bit undercarbonated for an AWA.
Overall- Very interesting and unique American Wild. Again, peaches galore. Wish this didn't taste so "dirty", it would have made the beer a better enjoyable drinking experience.
