16oz can into a pint glass yesterday afternoon.

Looks good, hazy orange body, bright white head persists, rings of lacing early on.

Lovely peach aroma

On tasting quite sour, citrusy, peachy.

Mouth between medium and full, finish sour peaches.

Overall, pretty good beer, sour enough, fresh fruit flavor.

Had this as a 16 oz shaker pint pour at Craft Draft in Newburgh, NY, on 15 Aug 2021... not a looker in the glass... the artfully chiseled sour peach edge to the underlying (barely an) IPA thrilled me from the sample I was gifted... out of a 3-beer trial final, went with this and was thoroughly satisfied... what a marriage of the tart, naked peach, and fruity hop elementals!... dat ping kept me alert and awake, wanting to know where I could get more (besides where I was)... I will keep this on my radar for awhile; quite an impression! (1808)

L -- Hazy golden straw body with a finger of solid white head produced with moderate pour. Some retention and lacing. Looks like an NEIPA
S -- Tons of juicy peach and pastry dough character. Hint of lemony acidity and maple. Very pleasant and fresh
T -- Bit more tart than anticipated. Has a clean, apple cider vinegar tartness alongside yellow peach, leafy hoppiness, and a light sweetness
F -- Light mouthfeel, medium carb. Refreshing and fairly quaffable
O -- Definitely tarter than the other Silhouette variants I've had. The peach character, especially on the nose, is really well done

Pours a thick golden yellow color with a thin white head. Smells exactly like a peach. Super juicy and very peachy in taste. Nice sour taste not being too overbearing. Simply world class.

14 March 2020 - Beer #48

Price: $16.00 at the brewery

Appearance: 3 - looks like actual juice, not like when folks describe an IPA looking like juice. This looks like actual juice juice. A bit milky even.

Nose: 5 - I smelled it from across the room as I was getting a paper towel to clean up the spillage. This is a peach bomb. Like explode-y peach. The sheer amount of aroma is bonkers.

Taste: 4 - I like tart fruit. But not tart peaches because it just means they're not ripe yet. This tastes like they needed to wait for the peaches to ripen a bit more. It's delicious, but not amazing.

Mouth: 3 - the action on the tongue comes from the sourness and acidity, not from the carbonation. It's actually a bit flat.

Overall: 4 - I mean this is a really good beer, just didn't blow me away. One more crowler for tomorrow night; let's see if I saved the best for last.

Stay safe out there, team.

poured from a 12oz can into a perennial snifter. pours a murky but bright orange with soapy white head for days. a very nonaggressive pour still yielded a ton of head which fizzled away fairly quickly. smell is straight peaches and cream. the highlight of this pour for sure. taste i get peaches and cream as well but it’s fairly tart and a lot hoppier than the nose leads on. mouthfeel is decent but a little to carbonated for me. does come off a little spritzy however it kind of works for this beer hey takes away from the peaches and cream aspect (emphasis on cream). overall, excellent sour IPA and possibly the best of the few silhouettes i’ve tried thus far.

32 oz crowler from corm44 poured into Crane snifter.

Really hazy juicy peach-orange color with a creamy head of 1/2 finger.

Lacto funk and peach ring on the nose. Cling peaches in heavy syrup as well.

This beer is literally blowing my mind. Freaking incredible!!!! Peach rings meet a bright sour lacto funk and pleasant citrus hoppiness. Juice. Peach milkshake. Near perfect blend. Not much more to say after that and every flavor here is loud and pleasant. Amazing.

Feel is crisp yet still creamy, lots of nice pleasant carbonation (good crowler fill).

Overall, this beer is insane. It's been a long while since I've been this psyched. Would seek out again for sure.

Opaque orange-ish pink with a think white film that's constantly bubbling with effervescence.

Smell is peaches and champagne. Really. Occasional notes of yogurt and orange zest accent. It's an extremely bright, fruity and sense awakening aroma.

Tingly like champagne and tart like a mimosa, this hits the nail on the head but with a juicy peach flavor. It's delicious and a delight to actually drink for brunch.

The light body is filled by the carbonation to a medium heft with a crisp semi-dry swallow.

Pours a color you'd expect a sour IPA with peaches to be, with a finger's worth of tiny, frothy bubbles. The nose is absolutely awesome. The aroma alone is a treat for me. It's soooo peachy, but it's not JUST peach. The Citra and Mosaic fill in gaps you didn't even know were there, resulting in a scent that's incredibly enjoyable sniff after sniff. Flavor is really nice, with some tart bite up front, followed up by more peaches that are held back from being too sweet by the hops. Body is just where I want it to be as well, crisp and effervescent. Good stuff.

Pours hazy yellow. Foamy, thicker medium Whitehead that lasts a while.

Smells tart on right Peach, citrus, lemon.

Taste tart Peach, orange, citrus peel, lemon. Followed by sweeter Peach and sweeter orange. Finishes dry with a peach and citrus peel linger. Medium body and lightly fizzy lower carbonation.
