look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

750ml bottle poured into a teku

Pour - Nice opaque golden yellow pour. Slight head that quickly drifts off. Appears to be a bit of pulp / cloudiness at the bottmo of the pour

Smell - Peach up front which smacks you in the face. Citrus picks up afterward from there

Taste - Peach comes on quite strong hit by the sweetness and tart/sour following. Really quiet refreshing in hot weather. Bit of acidity to it, but not nearly what the other reviews communicated. Perhaps a sign of the age.

Mouthfeel - Nice level of carbonation with smooth mouthfeel leading way to the sour of the beer. Nicely done by Pizza Boy

Overall - Appreciate this beer and it's balance between flavor of the peaches and sourness to offset the sweet. Well done and look forward to more PB sours

Chock full of proteins and one of the ugliest beers I've seen. Smells like the inside of a boat house, which isn't saying much. Pass.

2/3 of this beer was sediment, like drinking the pulpiest orange juice you can ever imagine. Had serious potential taste wise too.
