Thank you d4radio for an excellent trade!
Pours a murky peach colour. No real head... Looks okay but nothing special
Smells awesome! So much peach! Smells awesome!
Tastes heavily of peach. Lots of fruit character with a touch of nice tartness. The sour is well integrated. Every sip hits with more peach. The oak character comes through subtly. Very enjoyable. This is definitely one of the best beers I've had In a while!

Thanks to Skuter and mrbubbler for sharing this one at mrbubbler's "end of the world" tasting.

Bottled 4/30/12. Bottle # 193/420.

Pours a hazy orange with a foamy bone colored head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is sour, tart, and funky with lots of peach and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same a phenomenal peach flavor that is mouthwatering and delicious. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a fantastic beer and definitely one of the best sour fruit beers I have ever had.

Shared with JLindros at his Birthday Whale Tasting. Reviewed from notes.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a crystal clear peach juice hue with a thin, quarter inch head that fades immediately .

S - Super, SUPER ripe peach notes, peach skin, flesh, candies, peach juice. Its just awesome how peachy this beer is. Light funk as well.

T - Peach juice galore with light wild funk notes. It then switches over to tart, sour stone/pit notes. A great combination of fresh fruit and canned peach flesh and syrup. Over the top with just a little bit of brett funk.

M - Mouthfeel is super tart/sour with light carbonation.

O - Overall this is an incredibly good peach beer. Love when a beer delivers what it promises.
