Reviewed from notes. Thanks go to a very generous and kind individual (you know who u are). Shared between four. Never ever thought I'd get to try this one. Lived up to the expectation. A bit low carbonation but popping. Brilliant orange hue. Lots of fruity peaches and apricots with some oaky tannins for tartness. Loved every drop as I floated away on a cloud.

Thanks to Jason for this one!
Long awaited and still kicking.

Pours a golden orange, charged with lively carbonation, a frothy head and ample lacing around the edges.

Aroma is sharply acidic with identifiable peach presence still noticeable. Woody vanilla in the periphery, and some cheese rind barrel funk.

Bracingly sour, puckering sour peach pit. Very acidic, it has a sharp fruity note of sour peach and becomes fleeting and dry in the aftertaste. Crisp and effervescent, minimal funk at this point. Very sour with the peach element of Yellow Bus still hanging on. Good stuff, though I'm glad we drank it now.

Long time want! 750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Bright orange and hazy. Very small white head and a thin collar.

Smell - Peaches and apricots. Bright acidic. Woody. Lots of oak. Wheat and grain.

Taste - Very nice stone fruit flavor. Not quite as distinct as the aroma, but a nice peach. flavor. Strong sourness. Woodiness builds. It gets a little bit too strong in the sourness in the finish, but it's just a touch too much.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Really impressive, especially for its age. Delicious fruit flavor that complements a well-made sour.
