Notes: Sour ale comprised of multiple vintages, up to 3 years, blended and aged in oak casks with fresh peaches. Juicy, ripe, nectarous peach notes, finishing with a firm and refreshing tartness.

4.35/5  rDev +6.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance - Pours cloudy golden with a thin white head that quickly dissipates. No lacing.

Aroma - light ripe peach, funk, grass, acidic.

Taste - Much more peach in the taste hits immediately then gives way to tart lemon. Taste is more tart than funky unlike the nose.

Feel - Light bodied prickly carbonation gives way to a dry slick finish.

Overall - Really well done, the peach is very subtle tart but not overly acidic great flavors.

This is an interesting one, in a good way. Pours pale yellow with a touch of both cloudiness and head, nothing more. Smell is of sourness and funk of some undetermined origin. Taste is sour, peach pit, and peach. Definitely a dark heavy pit taste, with some sour funkiness. Not what I was expecting at all, but very good.

Semi-hazy light straw color. Thin fluffy white head. Super spotty lacing. No legs.

Sharp acidity on the nose. Light funk. Muted apricot and peach.

Sweet malts and astringent lactic acid. Light apricot and peach, to the point that I almost wouldn't be able to find it if it I didn't know what the beer was. Strange aftertaste that I can't quite put my finger on...slightly metallic and wheaty.

Lightly carbonated. Medium bodied. Slightly prickly.

It's light and refreshing, but ultimately bland and one-dimensional. My review is a lot lower than the other ones. Maybe this beer was a totally different beast from the bottle.

And Free Will continues to be the only brewery whose sours give me a stomach ache.

Really excited to try this one as I am hearing great things!

Pulled the cork and it was like I was walking through a peach orchard. Aroma filled the room with fresh, ripe, juicy peaches. Total peach bomb in the nose.

Nicely carbonated, but dissipates immediately. Beautiful deep golden haze.

Taste is more upfront sourness and the peach is toned down, but still present. Really delicious and refreshing. Nice prickly, well carbonated mouthfeel.

One of the best local sours in my memory. Going to split a case with some friends.
