Thanks a ton to Mike for giving me such a generous sized pour out of the bottle. Poured into a Cigar City snifter on 4/26/2014.
A- Hazy straw-yellow body, one finger white head, good retention, some lacing. Looks quite well carbonated.
S- Vinegar, tart stone fruits, oak, even a bit of barnyard at the end. It's wave after wave of sour, peaches and funk. Wonderful.
F- It starts out with a nice non-descript vinegar sourness, 6/10 as it is not explosively so, but nice enough to make my parotids shiver. The peach flavours come next; a nice and tart peach juice that starts contributing a sweetness that helps balance out the vinegar. There is tons more peach character in this than Peche 'n Brett. And then the finish is a dry oak and Brettanomyces. Musty and oaky dry finish. Wonderful flavour profile that makes me wish all peach sours could be like this.
M- Medium bodied, but light on the tongue and effervescent. Very refreshing tartness results from the vinegar and peaches, leaving a dry oaky finish. So drinkable, if I had a 375ml of my own, I'd easily drink this by myself without getting any heartburn.
O- Excellent peach sour. No beer is worth what people are having to offer up to get this one, but it does speak to Cory King's expertise in brewing and blending wild ales and saisons together. This is one of the best examples of the American Wild Ale genre I've come across, and certainly the best fruited one. Yes, I think this is better than Very Sour Blackberry.

A: aggressive pour yields two finger white head that dissipates quickly. Rich golden-peach color, yeast accumulation in the bottom of the bottle but doesn't follow to the glass. Leaves legs on glass that dissipate slowly. Looks nice.
S: prominent sweet peach aroma with a definite vinegary complement. Some distinctive funk, a bit musty, lemony, cheesy, almost gueuze-like. A slight bready aroma underlies, almost like a peach danish.
T: lemon, vinegar, lots of funk, cheese, yogurt tartness. Peach flavor is definitely there but a bit overwhelmed by the significant tartness and acidity. tastes like an earthy gueuze with peach added.
M: thick, rich, coats the tongue with almost a yogurty smoothness. Pretty dry despite the adequate carbonation. Pretty unique.
O: much different than I expected. On one hand, I don't get as much peach flavor as I expected or as much as other American peach sours I have had. On the other hand, its gueuze-like character is good in its own way and the peach complements it well and in a unique way I have not ever encountered. I just think the vinegar and funk overwhelms a bit. While not necessarily my favorite peach sour, it is well-done, complex, and unique. Dunno if it is worth the price of admission but enjoyable nonetheless.
