Pour at The Monk's Kettle. Wow...this beer pops with smooth fresh peach aroma...crisp, sweet, smooth, tangy. Clear light golden pale body with a tiny white head. Flavor has nice nuanced peach with lactic acid, mild funk but a delicately complex flavor. Crisp finish and not too much biting acidity. An amazingly delicious beer!

Had both '14 and '15 on tap at the Upright tasting room. Slightly preferred the '15 as well believe is was less acidic and more peach forward.

Unripe tart peach, hint of lemon, pear, restrained sweetness, tartness and only a hint of sourness. Some funk. Extremely well balanced. Semi dry. Interesting and delicious brew. Was expecting a bigger punch of flavor though.
