Looks delicious like all beer. Murky caramel color. Head dissipates. Smells like delicious fresh peach with a little sour in the background. Taste is all sour upfront with a peach finish that lingers around. The rye base is in their too. Unremarkable mouthfeel. Smooth with a little carbonation on the back. Kinda fruit juice like. Excellent sour if you like peaches which I do.

2015 edition from bottle.

Poured into a tulip ice cold. I truly enjoyed this one. Pours a very light amber color with very little head. Smells of peaches, rye, oak, and funk pop out right away from the first sniff. The beer had the right amount of peaches where you could definitely tell that the Bruery did not skimp out at all. The peach flavor was not exactly in your face like some of the top peach sours in the world but it was enough for me to be completely satisfied. In terms of the sour and tart factor, this one had it for sure. For the feel, the beer had a medium body with light to moderate carbonation. Definitely one of the most sour and tart beers from the Bruery that I've tried. I do enjoy their Sour in the Rye variants and this one I would definitely love to drink again given the opportunity. Cheers!

L: peachy amber. Two finger head.
S: lemon, green grape skins, unripe peach
T: wow sour. Lemon pulp and zest, green grapes, unripe and gummy peaches. Mild pepperiness from the the rye. A hint of salt.
F: medium light, with some body (I assume from the peaches)
O: tasty. Very sour but not sharp. Peaches are good compliment to the base flavor.

2015 version. This is super sour; not quite as sour as Oude Tart, but close. The rye adds a nice, subtle spiciness. I really liked this - one of my favorite Bruery sours.

750mL bottle acquired through the Bruery's Society. Bottled 4/2/15. Served in a Bruery snifter.

Pours a cloudy peach hued orange with a two finger cap of pale froth. The head shrinks quickly to a thin, broken ring around the edge leaving very little in the way of lace.

Even the nose here is sour with peach, oak and funk. That acidic tartness is the prevalent note.

The taste is very tart/ puckeringly sour with spice, sour peach, acidic citrus, oak, earth, some barrel funk and faint vanilla. There has to be a boat load of peach in there for it to be so noticeable among all the strong acidic sour notes.

Medium full feel with moderate carbonation. Finish remains quite sour and acidic with a little peach, rye like spice and barrel.

I like the fruit addition to the base Sour In The Rye. It lends a little more sweetness than I found in the kumquat variant. Glad that I got to try this.

Had a bottle from the newest batch. This one was totally lacking in peach flavor and tasted exactly like regular Sour in the Rye. Had this side by side with SITR Kumquats and the Kumquats took it by a significant margin. A good brew, but needs more peach to differentiate itself from the OG.
