Got this bottle from wyoming on BA. Thanks muchly! Pours a cloudy straw gold with an initial abundance of foam. 20 seconds later, zilch but that's kinda typical of the style. Tart peach aromas, bits of cinnamon, wood. Taste is tart but mixing with the subtle cinnamon spiciness is quite unique and delicious. It gets woody near the finish with hints of vanilla. Low end of medium bodied, the carbonation is on the zesty side which helps to bring out the flavours. A treat to say the least, a 2017 Sour of the year to say the most.

On tap at Old Town Pizza Roseville.

A: medium orange color that starts with a minimal amount of head which dissipates quickly(reminds me of my last relationship)

S: smells sour with a fair amount of peach. Don't get much cinnamon or vanilla

T: sour peach, lemon, faint vanilla and a hint of cinnamon on the finish

M: I would say medium bodied with a bit of effervescence and high acidity

O: this is a very well done beer.. I would say the best peach sour I've had.. definitely worth it if you see it and I would argue worth acquiring it if you can

4.5 across the board. Had a few sours in my day, some good some not so good. This one was excellent. Pours a cloudy peach to straw yellow with a bubbly whit head that is gone as fast as you pour it. Nose is of cinnamon, light peach and yogurt. Taste of Greek yogurt with fresh cut peaches blended in. Notes of vanilla and cinnamon but the cinnamon to taste is not as prevelant as it is in the nose. Nice light oakyness that is all wrapped up in a pastry like malt backbone. It's what peach cobbler would taste like if peach cobbler were beer.
