On tap for the Bruery Initiation Celebration held at The Phoenix Club in Anaheim, CA.

Pours a murky orange with a foamy beige head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is sour and tart with lots of peach and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with a very nice sour peach flavor on the finish. There is a medium amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp and prickly mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with a fantastic smell and really tasty flavors.

Poured out as an orange gold color with a thin white head on top. The smell is funky as hell but also has some very nice fresh peach aromas in there too. The taste of the beer has a good amount of sour funk going on but the peaches once again save the day on this one. Overall this beer is pretty enjoyable.

Shared with Rudzud as our HS membership says.

Small fizzy head fades at a med pace light lacing, very murky like solid color orange juice kinda thing tangerine orange color.

Nose brings peach flesh right off, like squishy fleshy peach and even a little nectarine citrusy like, faint bready malt, just a touch of passion fruit juice, touch of a tangerine passion fruit peach orange juice blend.

Taste brings more peach but not a lot, again that fleshy chewy stringy white peach like flavor, more juicy fruit like a def tangerine flavor, light citrus as well. Some tartness but not nearly like sour in the rye, a sour peach fruit. Light bready malts, and a nice spicy rye coming through a lot more than original sour in the rye. Light bready funk and wild Brett flavors but not a lot. Light acetic acid bite. Finish is drier but sticky and flemmy, lingering sour peach and fleshy peach, light bready funk, nice spicy rye, hint if tangerine juice lingering as well.

Mouth is med to lighter bod, lots of fluffy carb that even gets a bit sharp, some tart acidic bite.

Overall a decent beer but original sour in the rye is better. The peach is nice in the flavor but still muted and lighter overall in the aroma, lighter on the tart fruit and sourness, and almost no barrel, but the rye comes out a bit nicely, and the carb gets a bit too much. As far as peach beers this is not quite up there, Filmishmish was better IMO.
