Pours a yellow-orange color with a tad of haze. A three finger snow white frothy head crowns the beer and just plain refuses to recede. Smells entirely of wild yeast and peaches with plenty of funk in the nose. First sip has surprisingly much less funk than the aroma indicated…so much so as I was rather disappointed. Not very sweet either so I am guessing age will not add much to the funk or sourness level. Once I got over my lack of funk funk. I was able to appreciate this beer for what it is.

A:pours a hazy orange with two fingers of white head that recedes into a thin ring with a little lacing

S:lightly sour and tart notes with aromas of peaches and lemons. The finish has a clean, yeasty aroma with some bubblegum notes.

T: like the aroma, there are some sour notes and peach flavors at first along with some slightly musty flavors. The finish is very clean with some lightly sweet and bready notes.

M: light body with medium carb, this beer is light and crisp, which goes well with the flavors.

O: a pretty decent sour. Not strongly sour, but rather very clean with some lightly sour notes.
