wow...I mean WOW! aside from looking amazing, this smells unreal...vanilla cinnamon golden sour with peaches! I heard it is aged in map of the sun barrels? slam dunk homerun simply amazing blend of flavors. so great. possibly the best rare barrel I have tried to date. if I had to find a flaw, and it is hardly a flaw...but the finish is a hint dry. super awesome...this beer should be called peaches and cream (410 characters)

Sour, tart, like a half-ripe peach. Hint of earthy vanilla bean. The aroma is more peach pie with a toasty crust. Bright, but finishes balanced with a touch of sweetness. Only a bit of barnyard to round out the sourness. (220 characters)

Poured from 750ml Bottle @ bottle share.

A-Darker Golden hue

S- Subtle Peach notes but the cinnamon is front and center. Smells like a Peach Cobbler with Cinnamon baked in, mmm.

T- Follows the nose. Cinnamon up front with the peach in the finish, lingering until the cinnamon catches back up and slowly fade together. Fantastic.

M- Effervescent. Good Carbination.

O- I wish I had more of this to drink and I would/will actively seek this beer out. It's DELICIOUS! (468 characters)

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Slightly hazy yellow body. Small white head.

Smell - Lots of cinnamon. A little bit of peach, but not much. Faint acidity.

Taste - Much stronger stone fruit. Still not specifically peach, but stone fruit. Cinnamon comes through. Sharp sourness in the back.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Medium low carbonation.

Overall - Fascinating smell, but not all that fascinating overall. (433 characters)
