I'm not a huge sour fan, but this was as good a sour as I've tried.

So much peach as its poured, floral and fruity. Same with the taste, floral peach, nicely sour. So much peach!!! Amazing (but not quite vsb).

S-Peaches, bourbon, oak, leather, tartness.

T-Amazing balance. Nice peach followed by mild bourbon and oak. Leather notes and well. Some grass, nice tartness.

M-Medium bodied, nice carbonation and super smooth.

O-The best sour I have ever had.

This tasted like a slightly less sugary peach ring gummy. So peachy, slight sourness. Very tasty if you love peaches.

It taste like you are biting into a peach, literally. Not sour at all like I expected. Great beer.

Hazy burnt orange pour, with a small wispy layer of off-white bubbles that held pretty good. In the nose, funk and peach, not overly sour. Lots of fresh peach flesh in the taste, again, not overly tart and sour, somewhat earthy and mulchy, leather and a little farmhouse. Also some almond in there; wonder if they left the pits in the peaches. Body was medium, mouthfeel wasn't really crisp like I prefer in beers like this, more chewy, with a toned-down acidity. Not bad.

Appearance: Pours a hazy orange/copper color with a modest head that leaves a few dashes around the collar

Smell: The bouquet of fresh peaches is enormous, with some bready character underneath; just a touch of funk and sour tones

Taste: Peach juice dominates, with crusty bread, leathery funk and a hint of maple; slightly lactic, after the swallow

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation; slightly puckery

Overall: New Glarus is gifted when it comes to fruit beers and while this one is more of a fruit beer than a wild ale it is still incredible
