Hazy pale gold. Smells amazing with peach skin, cinnamon, vanilla and some funk. Tastes nice and tart and like the inside of a peach cobbler. Sweet peaches, cinnamon and a lot of vanilla. Really great beer.

Sample at Mikkeller Beer Celebration Copenhagen 2018, Red Session. Aroma has tart passionfruit, guava and melon. Taste is sour, fruity, acidic and dry. Really nice fruity and fresh sour ale.

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.
