in a run of really heady wild beers, this one did not stand out to any of us as one of the best, and while it faced some really stiff competition, these guys are garnering hype and awards of all kinds, and as such, their beer probably should be judged against the best in the world at this point, and at least in this particular instance, it does not measure up. its a little still from the bottle, the first small format bottles i have seen from them, they look a lot sharper than the flat golden liquid. aroma here is nice, i smell an almost candied peach vibe, natural fruit and juicy and all, but with a honey type sweet note to it as well. really nice. that is there in the flavor too, the peach aspect is awesome here, easily the best feature. the least impressive part for me is the part thats supposed to be the best, the yeast. not sure if this just hasnt aged like they thought it would or what, but it tastes a little dirty and tired to me in its maturity, still sour for sure, but the funk is sweaty and strange and too long and too much in the finish, its not balanced and while it is unique, its not all that great. with the sweetness of the peaches and the intensity of the oak, i want this to be bleaner and brighter than it is. the lack of carbonation also does not flatter the yeast profile, nor does a warming temperature of the drink. its aso not easy to appreciate that its rye barrels instead of bourbon, its still sweet and corny tasting to me, still with more vanilla and honey character than earthy or spicy rye, and i almost long for a little whiskey harshness in here, even with all the wood. i know this was awhile ago now, and these guys are evolving at a pretty insane rate, so they have i think moved past this beer in the quality of their work now, but this was a bit of a let down for us, unique as it is. its tasty enough, but its not technically very good beer at all at this point...

My favorite of all the beers I had at their July 1 tap takeover. I had to drink multiple pours of it because I enjoyed it so much.

Flavor and aroma really pop with an enjoyable blend of earthy, rye whiskey flavor and peach.

The beer packs a healthy dose of tartness but never overwhelms with acidity.

I do wish they'd bottled this guy, as I'd have picked up as many as possible.
