October 2015 version at 5.0%.

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

A: Lots of dried peaches upfront, followed by a light funky sourness.

A: Straw color, light haze with a very thin ring of head in the glass.

T: Lots of peach flavor upfront, followed by a light lingering sourness that’s faintly funky.

M: Medium-light bodied, no perceivable acidity, with moderate carbonation.

O: Solid; very refreshing and easy to drink. However, the beer is not quite as tasty as its nearly identical twin, Surrette Reserva Prunus Perscia (which has a little better balance between peach and funky sourness)

Looks pretty good.
Smells of unripened peaches.
Tastes very, very sour. Think lemon seed!
Almost no mouthfeel whatsoever.
Overall I don't get the higher ratings.
