L: Golden Amber color
S: Strong odor of peaches
T: Flat beginning that raises into a strong punch of peach flavor. The peach flavor fades off leaving the taste of sour notes at the end. Truly a fun ride.
F: Very light and refreshing except the middle which is bold.
O: Excellent choice from Modern Times. You can't go wrong with this unless you hate sour flavors.

I was highly underwhelmed by this beer so am surprised to see such high ratings on here. I didn't know anything about the beer going in but on paper it sounds great. It pours a murky dark amberish orange with restrained peach on the nose. The flavor profile just wasn't bright or clean enough for me compared to other peach wilds. It had too much malt and an offsetting level of acidity for what it was trying to accomplish in my opinion.

Shared by the man himself. Thanks Mike.

Hazy, dark orange body with a thin collar. Peaches, stone fruit, funk, melon. Juicy peaches, sweet fruits. Yeah man. Tasty. Dangerously easy to drink.

Opened this for my mom's birthday because she loves sours. Smart woman! Poured about 6 ounces into a wine glass.

Appearance: Pours a hazy, cloudy amber with little head. Decent lacing

Smell: The fresh peaches added to this beer dominate the nose, but notes of sour cherries, old wood, and pineapple seem present too

Taste: Juicy peaches and great tartness up front, some of the more Oud Bruin complexity comes through on the mid palate, and peaches (again!) on the finish. Peaches linger on the finish

Mouthfeel: Pleasantly sour, but not completely mouth-puckeringly so. Tiny bubbles and solid carbonation

Overall: Another fantastic sour offering from the Modern Times release. Not quite as flavor packed at the nectarine (Palace of the Cracked Heads), but still very, very memorable.
