Been sitting on this since its release at Puckerfest and looking forward to trying it after a few years.

Golden orange, nice carbonation, good head retention and lacing that will hand around forever.

Smell is sour lacto peach with some juniper pine.

Taste mellows a bit from the nose in a good way. Great blend of peach, gin and tart lactic acid. Not too puckering. Dry finish from the brett.

Overtime the sour has taken over the dominant gin I remember. It is still delicious four years later but it has changed a bit, not in a bad way, adds to the uniqueness of the beer.

Cool seeing Don Younger on the bottle. Keep it up Belmont/Upright.

Thanks to Eric for sharing this one!

Pours a murky saturated orange, frothy halo of white lace around the edges with good surface coverage.

Fruity and acidic aroma, juicy grapefruit and passionfruit, didn't get apricot specifically though.

Bright and tart flavor, sour grapefruit and lemon notes, passionfruit impression again. Full bodied, savory, with ample carbonation, juicy. Overall really enjoyable, thanks again to Eric for sharing this one! 4.25/4.25/4.25

A - Hazy golden orange with a small white head

S - Sweet peach balanced with sour lactic acid

T - Sweet peach up front and then tart lactic acid. In the finish, lots of tart lactic acid and sweetness that comes through to make this a well balanced peach sour. Not much funk.

M - Tart carbonation, lots of fizz. Dry finish

O - Really good balance between the peach and the tartness. Really a solid beer
