Truly one of the best sours out there. Hard to get your hands on but worth the price. Unfortunately, when you get a pour or bottle it does not last long. I had this at Side Project bar in early 2017, visiting a friend in St. Louis. I believe it was the second batch, good haze with a bright orange. Had a sweet complexity of peaches that developed into everlasting funky, earthy, acidity that beckoned another sip. Must try if you are a sour lover.

On tap at Beavertown Extravaganza. Aroma is funky and floral with unripe peach and apricot and hay notes. Taste is tart, fruity and lactic with some fruit pit bitterness.

Had this at the Firestone Walker 2017 Invitational. The long line paired well with the hangover I was nursing in the heat. Pours innocent and yellow with a chunkee or two floating around and a super thin mild head that was gone before I took a sip. Wow, what a great aroma. Peach, brett, barrel, funky yet dry. Pretty top notch in that department.

Taste, oh man I could drill this all day. Nice soft white peach envelopes the mouth, not overly acidic or sour, just right. Carbonation on point, the nice little white wine notes are complimentary. It is definitely upper echelon fruited wild ale territory. Doubt I would ever trade for such a thing because it is so damn valued and there are comparable beers like this in my neck of the woods (De Garde- The Peach). Its almost as good as O'so's peach wild ale. So I'd say it is running #2 in the Midwest, which is still a huge compliment. Peach and sour fans will dig it.

What an excellent beer. Amazing nuance and waves of flavor. Perfect fruit balance. Very well done. Best beer at Shelton Bros "The Festival" 2017 IMHO.
