This is the 10/10/17 Nectarine CFP.

This one pours a slightly hazy orange color, with a small head, and lots of lacing.

This has a wonderful prickly nectarine aroma here, crazy funky, with lemon rind and barnyard, grassy funk, and stone fruit.

Casey's stone fruit beers are always absolutely killer, and this one is no exception. The nectarine comes through strongly, even a year later- this was bottled on 10/10/17, it appears. It's quite prickly, with an intense funk reminiscent of cheese rind, lemon rind, wet grass, and barnyard.

This is light bodied, crisp, and with a lingering acidity on the back end. I've had softer Casey beers, but the hard edge of this one is a nice change-up.

The more I have from Casey, the more I'm convinced they are the fruited wild ale masters in the United States.
