been waiting a really long time to try this one, glad i got to do it with my brother. hazy muted orange to rust colored brew, cloudy wheaty looking, and way more fizzy than heady. it bubbles a lot, but nothing really accumulates at the surface. the nose is awesome, fresh peaches all the way, really brightly fruity, fleshy and ripe, summery for sure, but also extremely sour from the lacto. the wood is mellowing and sweet in both nose and taste, and without it i think this would be overly acidic, but its all in perfect balance as it is. the fruit is great in the flavor too, genuine and true to its natural self, with the tart skin and the sweet yellow flesh in the middle, but dried out insanely in the finish. other fruit is here too, namely lemon and white grape, likely products of the lacto fermentation, which is rather intense. its so sour, a hint of vinegar, but more of the high acid pucker than anything else. there are a lot of peach sours out there, but this one ranks near the top for me, the fruit is fresh and genuine, the sourness is high, but so is the drinkability with the low abv and all. huge fan of this whole series, but im not sure this one beats out the cherry, that was the winner so far

Poured into a Haw River Farmhouse Ales teku glass. 2013 vintage.

A- Pours an orangeish medium gold color with a 1/2 inch fuzzy off-white head that immediately dissipates to no bubbles. No lacing.

S- Nice acidic aroma with some peach essence coming through. Mildly funky.

T- Quite sour with some peach undertones and other light fruit flavors such as apple and orange. Definitely on the higher end of the sourness spectrum which could be attributed to the beer's aging. The peach comes out more as it warms.

M- High amount of puckering dryness with medium carbonation and a light body.

O- Definitely the most complex and enjoyable Cisco beer I've had so far which is what I was hoping for since none of their other beers really do much for me.
