Poured out as a hazy golden color with a white head on top. The smell of the beer is tart along with the taste, some subtle peach notes hidden within the sour elements that the beer has. The feel of the beer is light bodied with a clean finish. Overall it's a pretty solid Wild Ale.

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.
