No idea why this one gets the hype that it does, but by all means feel free to trade away half your cellar for a 375 of this. Just another average sour

L - a million little bubble form and stay. awesome carbonation and a nice foamy/hazy peach color. its gorgeous.
S - that funk is amazeballz, seriously reminds me of a Cantillon aroma. Some serious tangy peach flows into the nostrils. It does smell a bit acidic but I'm not sad about it, lets dive in...
T - peaches!!! so good, super carb which makes it light and crisp and full of fruit.
F - a bit acidic at first but the more it sits, the more fluffy and soft it becomes, bordering later on a creamy mouthfeel which is pretty awesome.
O - One that I'm super happy to have finally scored. Side Project holds a special place in my heart and I consider moving to St. Louis overtime I have one of their bottles, just awesome stuff.

**REVIEW NUMBER 700**

Big thanks to dujayhawk for sending this one down! Reviewed from notes. Poured from 375 mL bottle into a Tampa Bay Brewing Company snifter.

A: Pours a hazy light gold, with a thin white head and medium visible carbonation.

S: Big funk, barnyard and horseblanket, less stone fruit, and some lactic tartness. Mild vinous character as it opens up during the drink.

T: Funky tartness, lactic acid, an incredibly natural peach flavor. Some barnyard, milder barrel tannins, hints of the white wine. Nicely attenuated light malts, and puckeringly dry funky tartness. Finishes with some lingering stone fruit and bone dryness.

M: Light body, good carbonation sensation, and an alcohol content that is VERY well-hidden for the listed ABV.

O: This was really, truly, very good. Drinkable, but maintains the tart, funk and fruit that you're looking for. I truly don't know if it would be worth what it seems to be trading for, especially since it disappears from your glass before you realize it's gone. But it's really yummy.

From 08/19/14 notes. 375 ml bottle poured into my Lost Abby stemware. Big thanks to BeerLawyer85 for sharing this one; thanks Ross!

Pours a murky bright yellow color with one inch of bright white head. Super sour nose and taste, peaches, sour white wine, oak, floral notes. Taste is very vinegary and has more sour fruits and oak. Acedic , light to medium body.

Overall a really good sour. Way more sour and vinegary than fruity, but really great. Worth seeking out for sure.

Bought a pour at the release day. Poured from a 375ml bottle.

A- poured a golden yellow with little head, settles beautifully.
S- reminds me of a warhead from when I was little. Sour but with hints of peaches.
T- Very sour at first comparable to Sang Noir in tartness but lightens up and the peach notes come through wonderfully with dry wine and a hint of oak notes at the finish.
M- very light, goes down smooth and with no objections.

Overall this is one of the best sours, and more complex beers, I have had and easily ranks near the top of my list, which includes several Cascade beers, Almanac, and the sisters from GI. Try it if you can get your hands on it. Glad to have traded my bottles to friends for them to enjoy and experience.
