On tap at Home Brew Mart:

Look: It pours a golden honey color with a small, quick dissipating head. Nonexistent lacing

Aroma: The high point of this beer. There is a predominant aroma of peaches, with apricots seeming secondary. I smell peach pit too, which has a slightly woody scent.

Taste: The tartness is immediately noticeable, followed by the stone fruits that are added. The finish is fairly dry. Apricots linger on the aftertaste

Feel: The tartness is pleasant, but marred by relatively harsh tannins that aggravate the mouthfeel.

Overall this is a decent sour beer that's fine to try once, but I doubt I'll return to it.
