Intense aroma of fresh cut peaches balanced by a playful Brett funk that Crooked Stave does so well. The flavor follows, a sour bite up front giving way to an intense fresh peach flavor (so often very muted in peach sours.) This beer makes me gush with superlatives. It is a precious liquid. Thinking about makes my mouth water.

2016 batch - Incredible sour peach nose with slight funk, small white foam head and color is clear golden, flavor is balanced between sour (clean, slight acidity) and lots of peach, closes with a dry finish. Overall extremely well made peach sour.

Wasnt expecting much from this beer but wow, at a peach/apricot tasting, this was damn near number 1, and i hear its falling off, christ what was this guy like fresh!
Blend 1 and 2 dont hold a candle to this, but blend 1's tast was closer to this than 2.
