Huge thanks to lalaloveyou for sending this awesome extra! Thanks lauren!

poured into a snifter glass.

Appearance: yellow bodied beer with with a short lived white head that drops quickly to a thin white ring.

Smell: Sour lemon and big vinegar notes. Oaky. Not getting any peaches in the nose.

Taste: moderatly sour lemons and big oak notes. Mild vinegary sourness. Maybe some sour white grapes too. Still no peaches!

Mouthfeel: its at the high end of a light bodied beer. low end of moderate carbonation that has a dry tart finish. I nice a lively sour that very refreshing.

Overall: This is a good sour, but I cant find the peaches at all. That was a bit of a let down, but it was still an enjoyable sour none the less. Not a deal breaker by any means. My second Cisco sour and these guys make really wonderful sour beers! Seems like Lady of the woods is a little better sour! That was a surprise!

750 ml C&C bottle served in a tasting glass. I shared this at fellow BA danielnovak3's engagement party. Huge, huge thanks to Eric (Holland) for including this long time want as an extra(!!!) in a our recent trade. I owe you buddy.

A: Pours a clear yellow color with thin white foam forming on the pour. It recedes slowly to an airy ring that leaves some sticky webbing.

S: Definite peach flesh with a slight tartness. Mild acetic sourness with some soft, sweet pale malts and a touch of oak.

T: Big peach flesh up front, definitely sweet, but slightly tart. There is a raw honey-like sweetness to the middle and the sour peaches comes back on the finish with a little mix of oak as well.

M: Light bodied with a nice bubbly, above average carbonation. Easy drinking with smooth, slightly tart finish.

O: A great beer. The peach flavors aren't lost at all and it is really easy drinking. Would love to have again.

Split a 75o ml.... Poured into a duvel glass

A: pours a slightly hazy peachish color golden with about half a finger of head that settles into a film and remains... Minimal to no lacing, looks like refreshing peach juice.

S: peachy fuzzy sourness, a touch of wood, Smells like delicious fuzzy sour peaches.

T: much like the nose, nice amount of peach flavor with a nice sourness, delicious sour peach all the way, a nice little oak character.... Yum.

M: light bodied with medium/high carbonation, that give this a perfect fuzzy mouthfeel that accentuates bout the sour funk and the peach flavor, a little bit of wood makes the dfinish on the dry side, a little residual picking sourness in the aftertaste.

O: a great peachy sour, probably my favorite to date from Cisco, this wild ale gave me a lot of respect for this brewery.

750ml bottle served in an oversized wineglass

pours a hazy, pale yellow while yielding a short-lived 3/4" white head. a bit of patchy lacing evident. nose offers peach, a bit of funk, and some tartness. more or less what i was expecting on that front.

flavor follows the aroma closely with a light peach presence to blend with the tartness (though not overly tart) and moderate-to-light degree of funk. tasty and refreshing, though not the transcendent taste i was hoping for. light bodied with medium-low carbonation.

overall, this was good. i'm admittedly not the biggest fan of sours, but i enjoyed this take on the wild ale - very approachable for anyone just getting into the style, and a great summery brew.

Bottle to Oakuniox
750 Ml C/C

Thanks to Twstandley for this one

Shared at Beachwoods BBQ- Long Beach Ode to Lambic

App- A very clear golden color with yellow and soft haze intermixed. At the same time this beer was very clear. Had a small white head and was gone quite quickly.

Smell- Had a ton of fresh peaches behind it. Just like a fresh pressed batch in Georgia. A bit of a sour note to it vs. funk and a bit dry like a wine.

Taste- I poured this a bit warm but its still super tasty. Its very light, crisp and refreshing. A large amount of peach is all over the profile with some wheat flavors, a bit sour and offers a nice tang.

Mouth- A little bit of a peach pucker on this one. A light sour as well on residual flavors. A light medium body with a light active bubbly carbonation.

Drink- This was a very tasty beer. I enjoyed it alot. The small ABV made this one super easy to drink and just very well layered and crafter flavors.
