Bottle.

A: Lots of peach and apricot aromas with a moderately strong sourness.

A: Bright yellow color, hazy, with a thin white head that quickly forms a ring around the glass with light lacing.

T: Crisp and bright with moderate peach and apricot flavors, some oak, followed by a moderate sourness that lasts through the finish.

M: Medium-light bodied with moderate carbonation and lightly acidic.

O: Tasty; a great clean sour with awesome peach and apricot character. Very easy to drink and quite refreshing!
