2.29/5 rDev -37.1%
Poured from 12 oz bottle into my jester king snifter. This is a good looking beer. Very fizzy translucent gold. Aroma is tart peach and biscuit. Taste is disappointing. Very thin with an unpleasant aftertaste. The poach flavor tastes almost fake. Beer is dry, but needs more tartness to cut through the underwhelming old bread finish. The look and mouthfeel are above average.

Poured out a 32oz growler into my BHB tulip glass. Pours a nice clean yellow color, fizzy white head that is gone fairly quickly. Smell is clean, some sour notes but not a ton of peach on the nose. Flavor is very tart, sour nice. Not a ton of peach flavor coming through but I kind of welcome the subtle nature of it... Once the sour flavors back off there is a really biscuit tone to the finish of the beer. I really like this tart, refreshing great finish.

Pours a lightly hazy golden straw with peach tones and a fleeting ivory head that leaves no trace.
Diacetyl is initially evident, but Berliner yeast funkiness, wheat, and peaches take over quickly. There's a bit of peppery hop tones, but the balance is decidedly peachy.
Flavor is a bit sour throughout, lemony at the finish, and a touch dry. Initial notes of slightly sweet peach give way to biscuit and wheat breadiness mid palate. There's an underlying funk that hides in the background. Floral hops are very subtle.
Body is a bit light of moderate, with slightly high carbonation.
Not as tart or dry as some, and a bit heavy and hot for the style, but a great departure from the usual styles, and pretty refreshing.

12oz into a tulip.
A: Pours a mellow gold with a nice white head.
S: Aroma brings mild peach fuzz, a little lactic and musty.
T: Slightly sweet peach juice, bready wheat, vague yeast, slightly tart lactic note on the breath.
M: Light-boded with zingy carbonation.
O: Pretty nice and refreshing. A bit more tartness (like that in Perennial's peach berliner) would bring it up, but I don't mind this at all.
