Bottle shared by Barry last night, thanks man. Really cool label art.

This one pours a hazed golden dark yellow, with a small head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells super wonderful, tons of tart, juicy and beautiful peaches, some oak, and vanilla.

This is really just purely delicious. There is a ton of oak here, more than most American Wilds I've had, which is a nice, spicy and vanilla-tinged counterpoint to the big explosion of sour peach here. The peaches are definitely a little sweet and jammy, but mostly prickly and tart.

This is super, super drinkable, my pour disappeared so quickly. The mouthfeel is juicy and tart, with a moderate level of carbonation.

One of the best sours I've ever had, super nice.
