Cloudy bronze body with a white collar and webbing. Juicy peach, brett, and bright oak are the trinity of flavor in both the smell and taste. Smell has hints of apricot and funk. Taste has kisses of vanillins, orange juice and apricot. Feel is bright, sour, medium bodied and delicate. Good all around sour peach ale

On-tap at Hops Hill, Brooklyn, NY

A: The beer is slightly hazy pale dark yellow in color. It poured with just a thin collar of white bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of sourness are present in the nose along with hints of peaches.
T: Like the smell, the taste is extremely sour and has notes of peaches. The sourness persists for a very long time into the aftertaste.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and tart on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very, very sour and tart. The peaches in the smell and taste added a little complexity.

Note: 2017 vintage

Serving type: on-tap

Certainly batch 3 even if the bottle says 2015.
Nice brett character. The peach is there but fainted. Quite sour.
Good drinkability. A bit of old oak notes

Pale gold with no head.

The aroma is toasty toasty toasty, but also airy with a peach-apple sharpness on the tail end.

Feel is more watery than I'd prefer, with flavors of apple and pear that are less sour than the smell indicates, as a vibe of peach farm slowly creeps in as it warms, all via a thin dry body.

October 2015 version at 5.0%.

Could use some more bubbles, it seems a bit thin.
