Lightly hazed orange, momentary foam and delicate drippy lace.
Peach aroma is mild but present, straightforward and acidic.

Mildly oxidized and acetic, peach juice comes through with a drying oak finish.
Feels like peach drinking vinegar shrub, though balanced enough to not come off as straight vinegar.
There isn't much nuance or barrel character present, but it is fairly peachy thankfully.
These are the type of one-dimensional, overpriced "sours" I tend to avoid, but it's not all bad.

Light golden colored with excellent clarity and just some faint traces of sediment are suspended within the body. There's a fingernail of dishwater white around half of the rim and covering about a third of the top. The aroma is of delicate peaches and a touch of woodsy oak. Moderate carbonation and a dry, crisp finish from the oak aging.

A: Poured into a tulip to a light straw colored yellow topped by a finger of dense white head which fades quickly to a collar around the edge of the glass with minimal lacing
S: Smells of light funk and sourness with some juicy peach notes
T: Taste is juicy peach flavor with a hint of tartness that builds a little. Light funk as well but mostly juicy peaches and sourness. Swallow is lingering tartness and juicy peach notes with slight funk and cracker like malts at the very end.
M: This beer is somewhat light but not watery on the palate with soft carbonation that is just under prickly while the beer has a drying finish
O: Overall this is really nice. Not the most complex or tart beer but very well balanced. The beer has some great flavors that make this one an enjoyable drink.

Pours a crystal clear yellow straw with a finger of white fizz on top. Head retention is okay with minimal lacing left behind. It gains a slight haze when the last of the bottle is poured into the glass. Aroma is sugar, and peach. Flavor profile is a lightly sour peach, which has a nice ripeness to it. Mouth feel is medium-thin with a semi-velvety, fizzy texture to it. Overall, light aroma and flavor profile, but it's a complete focus on peach.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 375mL bottle.

12.7 ounce bottle, no dating on it that I noticed. Served in a teku, the beer pours a hazy pale gold color with about an inch white head. Head retention and lacing are both good. I like the aroma, the brew smells like peaches, funk, oak, and bready/grainy malt. Taste is pretty much like the aroma, but there's also some lemon and vinegar noticeable too. Nice amount of fruit and tartness in this brew. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's a bit creamy and coating with a moderate amount of carbonation. I thought this was a good enjoyable fruited wild ale, certainly worth picking up! $7.99 a bottle.
