Notes: Sour Rye ale with peaches added. Aged in oak barrels. Deliciously sour, bursting with spicy rye notes and hints of oak from the barrels it was aged within.

Poured from a 750 into a tulip glass

Look: Translucent dark amber orange with a thin off white head. A bit darker then I would have guessed.

Smell: Huge note of rye bread with a thin peach note. Like peach preserves spread on rye bread.

Taste: A big acidic punch on the attack. Like those orange altoids that came in the tin. Then it mellows to a big juicy peach note and finished with rye spice and whole wheat bread.

Feel: Big acidity and puckering sourness. Mild sweetness and no bitterness. Soft carbonation. No alcohol.

Overall: An excellent sour. It’s so close to perfection. I just wish the sourness might have mellowed just a bit more.

Pours pale orange. Very bright on the nose with lots of peach. Tastes extremely sour to the point where the sourness overwhelms almost everything. Some good peach flavor downs out especially as it wants, but this beer needs some balance.

Pours a matte bronzed orange-brown color. Weird fizzy bubbles form what passes for a head before disappearing almost instantly. No residual head whatsoever, butfittel bubbles course updates continuously.

Aroma is quite sour with tart notes of peach, lactic acid, and some general funky notes. This is the kind of sour aroma that causes a physical reaction as your taste buds prepare for responding to what they're expecting. Some light oaky, wood notes come through, especially as the beer starts to warm up.

The taste is about as tart and sour as expected. Instantly the tongue is assaulted with a sour flavor profile - the peaches are very mild and mostly complimentary. The sour flavor is hard to describe - its got lemon, oak, tannins, some light funk and a bit of sour warhead. That oakiness tends to smooth out the edges of the beer, but overall it retains a potent sour character.

Feel is light and rather crisp with moderate carbonation. However the sour produces a physical puckering sensation (at least for me). That causes the beer to feel bigger than it actually is on my palate.

This is a delicious beer and an outstanding sour. The peaches work so very well with this one and frankly take this beer to another level. I may end up regretting drinking this whole beer once the heart burn settles in ...

Received from @2beerdogs in NBS BIF 10 – Thanks Derek! Reviewed 1/5/20.
“2018 Edition”. Etched above label “#B – 463 11/30/17” above “11:45 001239”. Stored at home at 42 degrees and served at 45 degrees (as stated on the label) in a hand washed and dried Jester King snifter.
Appearance – 3.
First pour – Begins light yellow and clear, becoming light orange and clear as the pour continues. Second pour stirs up the sediment.
Body – Dark orange, translucent. When held to direct light, becomes lighter orange but still translucent.
Head – Fizzy (Maximum one cm, aggressive center pour), gone in a few seconds after the pour is completed, leaving a featureless surface except for a few short-lived tiny bubbles from effervescence around the rim.
Lacing – None.
Aroma – 4 – Peach predominates with both lactic acid and some oak tannins in the background.
Flavor – 4.5 – Begins tart, almost enough to make me pucker. Peach flavor is weaker than the nose leads one to expect. The rye is as elusive as Bigfoot. No alcohol (6.9% ABV as marked on label) aroma or flavor. No diacetyl, no dimethylsulfide, no malt, no hops.
Palate – 4 – Medium, watery, lively carbonation.
Final impression and summation: 4.5. This is distinctly a sour. Either you like the style (I do) or you don’t – there’s no waffling here. To my taste, the peach, while dominating the nose, barely holds its own on the palate against the acids. Those acids make my teeth squeak when I rub my tongue over them. Rye, I miss you.

2018 bottle poured into a pint glass. A hazy orange-amber color with a small white head. Great aroma with peaches, lemons, bread, and musty oak. Quite tart as expected. The peach flavor was sharp and not overly sweet, blending nicely with the tart lemony flavor and the barrel notes. A slight funk was there. Bright carbonation. Outstanding.

No head production. Opaque dark orange body.

Intense aroma! Tannins, oak, peaches, vinegar, rye, must.

Lighter on the palate, but still quite okay and tart, with vinegar, tannins, and a wave of peaches that washes over the palate.

Very sour and puckering.

Poured from a 2015 750ml bottle into a Duvel glass. It is a beautiful glowing cloudy deep orange. The carbonation produced a fizzy off-white head that immediately dissipated into a fine soapy ring that settles back into the beer.

It smells tart, acidic, yeasty, and fruity. Apricot/peaches and some subtle spice.

The flavors really don't stray much. It is sour and spicy initially, then a very strong ripe peach settles in and lingers forever like you grabbed one of the tree and took a big bite out of it, rind and all. There is some wood and apple cider vinegar, and a distinct musty aftertaste is also noticeable.

Carbonation is prickly and it has a bit of a lip smacking finish.

A fantastic beer. I am a big fan of peaches and this doesn't disappoint with tons of fresh peach flavor front and center.
