Tasted in a snifter from draft at The Vine on October 5, 2018. An easy drinking session sour that demonstrates a clean tartness, balanced out by an assembly of ripe peach flavor.

Pours a mostly clear golden color with two fingers of white head. 
Smells is refreshing, light peach, sweet malts, a bit of tartness.
Taste follows, a bit sweet up front, peach, a slight tart kick, followed with lingering peaches.
Medium bodied somewhat dry finish.
Overall a very refreshing brew. This would be a great summer pool/beach/yardwork choice.

12oz can, filled 06-08-2018. Frothy white head caps a golden colored ale. Yeasty and tart aroma with some fruity peach. Sweet and tart with some mild bready malt, peach, apricot, white grape, and chardonnay. Lighter body, modest carbonation, mild tart finish. I feel like this could have been more tart or more sour. Glad to try it but I wouldn't get it again.

Revolution Beer LLC "Freedom Of Speach"
12 fl. oz. can, "FILLED: 06-01-2018 06:30:48"
$2.49 @ Roger Wilco, Pennsauken, NJ

Notes via stream of consciousness: It's poured a two-finger thick head of white foam atop a very hazy golden body. The aroma is fruity and mineralish with just a mild suggestion of tartness. The flavor, however, reveals more tartness but it's still not "sour", just tart. In fact it's not really even that tart at all. Some peach comes through but it's not a peach bomb either, which is nice, and there's just a mild sweetness to the malt that balances everything. It's like a mild sour-peach gummi candy except that the peach comes through as authentic and not just a flavoring. The head has dropped to a standard collar at this point , which is to be expected, and there's not much lacing left behind. In the mouth it's light-medium in body and delicately crisp. It's refreshing and super easy to drink, and at just 4.5% abv you could drink more than a couple if you wanted to. I'm not sure what anyone could find wrong with this other than that they might want it to be more sour or more peachy but I find it perfect as it is. Worth trying.

12oz. can into Night Shift stemware. Shared with schen9303.

Nose is a zesty peach with a metallic and yeasty note. Tart. Lightly acidic. Beer opens creamy. Almost vanilla-like sweetness. Like a peach milk shake. More sweet than tart with just the slightest yeasty, bright tartness in the middle that dissipates quickly. Dry with a touch of bitterness at the end. Pretty good. Body is light with ample carbonation. Up front is a little too creamy for the style. Soft, clean finish with a sticky aftertaste.

Not overly complex but this sips nicely. Good balance and the vanilla and creaminess on the palate works well.

12oz can, teku glass. Cloudy, slightly unfiltered golden yellow body, one finger white head, short retention, bit of lacing. Smell is primarily lactic acid, yogurt, touch of peach juice, light grain, touch of acetic acid. Flavour follows; more peach rings than the nose would suggest, fair bit of lactic acid but not too acidic. Touch of grain, yogurt. Mouthfeel is lighter bodied, refreshing, fair carbonation, easy to drink, peach rings on the finish. Solid session peach beer, nothing too crazy but this is good to have as an option in the summer.
