Thanks to Jacinta for the share at Pulling Nails b4 release. This looks, smells, and tastes like nectarine juice with all the pulp in the world added.

750ml bottle, served in a stemmed glass.

Peach flesh-coloured body, one finger white head, great retention and great lacing. Beautiful beer. Smells of an obscene amount of stonefruit, moderate lactic acidity, wheat, a bit of cereal grain. The stonefruit is similarly super tart, but without that particular apricot skin aroma that I get from Imperial Apricot Bu. Flavour is a bit more heavy on the wheat and lactic acidity, with the stonefruit still having a strong immeasurable presence. It smells so good, and it integrates more with everything else on the flavour. Some oaky lightness comes along as well. Mouthfeel is medium-lighter bodied, good carbonation, crisp and dry, lots of nectarine tartness on the finish. Another big DG stone fruited bu, I can never say anything bad about these.

A - Pours an opaque nectarine color. No lacing. No head.

S - Straight up nectarines.

T - Tart nectarine start to finish with a slightly acidic twang. Lots of puckering nectarine funk on the back end.

M - Very dry on the top of the tongue while the rest of your mouth salivates profusely.

O - Didn't think I would like this, but do.

Pour is hazed peach in color with a white head that fizzes away immediately. Nose is highly acidic, bitter, with notes of tart nectarine. Flavor has a much brighter and riper nectarine, the insanely high co2 is still there, the acidity flattens out the bright fruit a bit. Finish is thin and highly carbed and a touch sweet but the nectarine lingers in a good way with a long finish.

Pours a hazy bright yellow golden color with little fizzy white head. Funk, tartness, citrus, lemon zest and orange-like aromas on the nose; follows onto the palate. Light bodied, dances on the palate. Finishes tart and dry.
