Notes / Commercial Description:
Smooth is our Missouri Wild Ale that was fermented in and aged in a French Oak foedre with Missouri microflora for 2 years. Once mature, it was racked on to Missouri Nectarines from the same farm in which we get White Peaches for Fuzzy. Big stone fruit aromatics, subtle Brett complexities and a more refined acidity.

A real stand out at our tasting. So much flavor packed into this little beer. Intense fruit from the nectarines that comes off as a real juicy quality. Acidic and tart, but not overpowering. Very fresh and clean. Much preferred this to Fuzzy.

L: Pours a light hazy golden color

S: Very acidic you can smell the nectarines that are packed into this bottle.

T: Very juicy but very sour. Big Nectarine and citrus notes

F: Very light, very crisp with a dry finish

O: This is a solid fruited sour. Love the look and the smell but just a bit to sour for me.

Hazy, golden, minimal head, just looks gorgeous in a glass. Funk, acidity, nectarine, oak come through on the nose and the palate. Perfectly balanced and carbed, and perhaps a little more sour than average for SP.

375 mL bottle. Hazy orange without much of a head. Nice nectarine aroma. It smells of very distinct peach/nectarine/stone fruit. The taste is immensely sour up front. Oak. Strong stone fruit. Very juicy. After the sourness dies down, it has a little bit of nectarine sweetness. Standard absurd Side Project sourness. Makes it difficult to drink. Low carbonation. Very flavorful, but overly sour.

Huge upfront acidity while cold with a nice sweet juicy feel as it gets closer to room temperature. I wouldn't exactly call this a fruit or a tart bomb but runs a nice balance of both.
