Batch 2, I think.

A: Light golden, very good clarity, a fizzy cap of bright white head with largish bubbles in the head despite tight-looking carbonation. No lacing, mediocre retention.

S: Pretty aromatic—I can smell the beer from my glass two feet away. Ripe peach, tart lemony twang, earth and light horse blanket. A little spice and leather as it opens up.

T: Moderate-high, bracing sourness that sort of shocks you into coherence, with a moderate undertone of peach, tangerine and light funk and barnyard. Long, mouth-pickering lemon and stone fruit finish.

M: Medium-light body and medium-high carbonation.

O: I assumed this would be close in character to Nectarine Premiere, which was phenomenal, but this is a fairly pedestrian, overly-sour-fruited sour which is not unlike many other versions coming out from breweries everywhere.
