Golden Orange color. White head.

Aroma: very odd. Sour dough bready aroma. Funk. No fruit. Some random herbal flavor.

Taste: very different from the nose. Lots of peach. Sour and tart. Acidic. So fruity and juicy. Amazing.

Mouthfeel: lighter bodied. Nice carbonation. Ends clean.

Overall, a really awesome beer. Too bad the nose isn't that good.
