From 08/19/14 notes. 375 ml bottle poured into my Lost Abby stemware. Big thanks to BeerLawyer85 for sharing this one; thanks Ross!

Pours a murky bright yellow color with one inch of bright white head. Super sour nose and taste, peaches, sour white wine, oak, floral notes. Taste is very vinegary and has more sour fruits and oak. Acedic , light to medium body.

Overall a really good sour. Way more sour and vinegary than fruity, but really great. Worth seeking out for sure.

**REVIEW NUMBER 700**

Big thanks to dujayhawk for sending this one down! Reviewed from notes. Poured from 375 mL bottle into a Tampa Bay Brewing Company snifter.

A: Pours a hazy light gold, with a thin white head and medium visible carbonation.

S: Big funk, barnyard and horseblanket, less stone fruit, and some lactic tartness. Mild vinous character as it opens up during the drink.

T: Funky tartness, lactic acid, an incredibly natural peach flavor. Some barnyard, milder barrel tannins, hints of the white wine. Nicely attenuated light malts, and puckeringly dry funky tartness. Finishes with some lingering stone fruit and bone dryness.

M: Light body, good carbonation sensation, and an alcohol content that is VERY well-hidden for the listed ABV.

O: This was really, truly, very good. Drinkable, but maintains the tart, funk and fruit that you're looking for. I truly don't know if it would be worth what it seems to be trading for, especially since it disappears from your glass before you realize it's gone. But it's really yummy.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pours with a hazy peach-influenced honey color; the head is modest but leaves a few streaks behind

Smell: Peach and funk, with lemon and vinegar tones

Taste: Lactic lemon and peach flavors, with a growing vinegary funk; earthy, after the swallow, with a decent pucker factor in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation; puckering

Overall: Excellent flavor and a well-balanced sour; not as peachy as I was expecting but it made up for that with the other attributes

Bottle shared by Dave tonight.

Pours a hazy bright golden yellow, with a quarter inch head, and a solid amount of lacing.

Smells absolutely incredible- bracing tartness, lactic acid, strong sour peaches, vinegar. Smells incredibly sour.

The taste is really incredible. The peaches start to come through after a few sips, they are quite sour, not really sweet at all, subtle and delicious. The barrel comes through strongly, huge taste of tart white wine, with blinding acidity- huge lactic character here. One of the best sours I've ever tasted.

The body is fairly light, but not thin, with a tart and crisp mouthfeel. The sour lingers for a very long time.

Next level sour here, absolutely incredible.
