Exploded upon opening. Eventually pours a cloudy orange with a thin near-white head that leaves a soupy crown and no lacing.

Sour, lightly tart aroma with peach, yeast and maybe wheat. It smells “soft,” if that’s a thing.

Tastes soft, too, with nice juicy peach flesh, hint of berry beneath, more of that wheat impression and somewhat tempered acidity (although it’s still quite puckering).

Soft, medium-bodied feel with moderate carbonation.

The explosion notwithstanding, this is a lovely beer. The peach level is just about perfect, and while very acidic in the wide range of beer options, it’s not the type of enamel-stripper wild ale many “craft” breweries product these days.

2018 batch 3
Pour a med haze with little to no head glowing orange color.
Funk and tang at the start And nice peach the taste is tart a good bite but a touch sweet and odd pumpkin spice like note that pushed it too far on the sweet side.
Mouth feel was on the sweet side and good carb.. overall just good not make head or tails of the beer some part I loved other did not

Poured into a snifter. A hazy golden color with a thick white head. Bright peach aroma mixed with grassy funk and barnyard notes. The taste followed. Fresh peaches stole the show, but complexity was added with the slightly sour notes and funk. Crisp, clean, and dry. Outstanding.

4.2/5  rDev -1.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured into a Wicked Weed snifter. No freshness date.

A- Pours a semi-hazy light amber color with a 1/4 inch white head that retains a bit before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and minimal surface foam. Not-so-resilient lacing leaves small clots behind.

S- Lovely Brett character that's of the cleaner variety with a bright punch of sweet peach juiciness.

T- Tangy flavor of peach and Brett with a moderate tartness. Again, very clean Brett presence which helps with the drinkability. Pretty acidic with a peach pit aftertaste.

M- On the lower end of the pucker spectrum with medium carbonation and a light body.

O- Just like the rest of Fonta Flora's fruited sours, very good but nothing particularly remarkable.

Great sour from Fonta Flora, smells of Stone Fruit and tastes even better. Tastes of Peach skin and Oak. Both build as it warms, love everything they are doing, get this if you can!!

From a 500cc bottle picked up yesterday at FF, pours golden blonde with thin white head. Smell is peaches, nectarines with a hint of funk, oak and grapefruit. Taste is peach, nectarine, stone fruit with a tart and dry finish. Great mouthfeel

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Appearance: Arrives at the bar with the cloudy golden liquid impressively capped; streaky lacing hangs around as the beer is consumed

Smell: Somewhat vinous and funky, with stone fruit tones underneath

Taste: Funk forward with the stone fruit flavors building modestly; through the middle, there is a stone fruit pit flavor that adds bitterness; the finish is on the tart side, with an oaky character

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate to high carbonation

Overall: More funk than fruit but I guess the name would imply that; otherwise it would have been called "Fuzz Funk"
