Brewed for Barrel & Flow Fest 2021. Collaboration with Warcloud Brewing (Rowland Heights, CA) .

Peach Cobbler Sour Ale. Like biting into a freshly-baked, flaky pastry filled with vanilla, peaches, and coconut, this Sour Ale delights the senses with a dance of sweet and tart.

16oz can into a pint glass. Canned 7/26/21, so 2 months old. Part of the 2021 Tavour package for Barrel & Flow 2021.

Looks good in the glass. Orange juice body. Small white head fizzes out about halfway down. No lacing.

Peach, vanilla, and coconut on the nose. Oddly enough, collectively, they give off a milk chocolate aroma.......

.....and, increasing the weirdness, my first thought was, milk chocolate! In the course of drinking this one, the individual flavors do come through, mostly peach, some cream, vanilla, and last and least, coconut.

Mouth, closer to full than medium, a mild tartness comes through in the finish, along with a nice peach flavor.

Overall, very enjoyable drink. Not sure where the chocolate flavor came from. Dinner was KFC.
