Thanks to whoever brought this one to the Hill Farmstead CW pre share.

A - Pours a hazy golden peach color with a nice one finger tall white head, dissipating down to a light film, leaving small trails of lace on the glass.

S - Smells of fresh peaches, mild funk, woody oak, lactic sourness, some basement must and a bit of sweet pale malt. Lots of funky peaches, love it.

T - Starts off with fresh picked ripe peaches slowly giving way to oak tannins, basement must, light funk, greek yogurt, white wine and a bit of sweetness from the malt. Finish is quite dry, lingering long after the finish. Lots of flavor, just with the peaches came through a bit more.

M - Medium body with moderate carbonation. Smooth, tart feel with a nice dry ending. Quite easy drinking all things considered.

O - This was an awesome peach sour. It was going up against a bunch of other Peach and Stone Fruit sours and really held its own, it was in my top three. I would love to have this again in the future.

From notes. Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a tulip.

A very hazy golden color with a ton of carbonation out of the bottle.

Sour peach and oak come rise above a blonde base beer aroma. There is a bit of vinegar as well.

Peach, light malts, crisp, tart, fairly sour during the flavor with a lingering sourness. There is a little bit of lemon zest and some oaky white wine notes. The peaches are not as full as I would have hoped. The depth is kind of lacking in the flavor.

Veritas 010 is very crisp, and the medium body borders on over-carbonated.

This is a nice beer, but my expectations are very high for a beer in the Veritas series.
