A 12.7 fl. oz. bottle, 2017 vintage, blended on 23rd June 2017. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass.

Appearance: A lightly hazy golden colour (turned hazy light orange near the end) with a one finger white head that dissipated fairly quickly and left only sparse to no lacing.

Aroma: Tart, peach, apricot, light gummy candy, funk, wet hay and a hint of wood.

Taste: Sour, tart, sour peach, apricot, sour gummy candy type sour and sweetness, vinous white grape, funk, orange pith with light vinegar and wood on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Overall: Nice peach and apricots plus gummy candy coming though. Funkiness seemed a little on the light side, but not a problem at all.

Batch 2 (2017). Poured into a SPON glass. Hazy pale orange color with decent carb that dissipates quickly into a ring. Nose is dominated by apricot ice cream, with funk, peach, and mild sewage. Palate starts with barnyard, following with a punch of sweet peach and apricot, with underlying funk throughout. Super interesting and fairly complex brew; the sweet fruits and barnyard play together well. Worth trying.

Pours a cloudy, vibrant light-orange with a finger of white head that's quick to dissipate into a thin film across the top.

Nice sour aroma with peaches, vinegar and oak.

It's not quite as tart and vinegary as the nose prepared me for. Some Bowie-level barnyard funkiness is in there, but the peach and apricot are relatively strong. Apricot especially lingers for a very long time in the aftertaste, mingling with the wood, such that a touch of juicy sweetness shows through the acidity.

It's much fuller bodied and creamier in the feel than expected for the style. Just enough carbonation to keep it lively upon swallowing.

This is a really well-crafted and perfectly fruity sour. To my taste, I think the Belgian classics have a little more bite, but this is certainly in the same class as anything I've had from Cantillon or 3F. It's an absolute pleasure to try. 6/23/17 blending date.

Very lovely - both the peach and the apricot shine as distinct flavors
