My first perfect score. Simply one of the best beers I've ever had. Pours a golden yellow, small bubble head. Smells yeasty, fruity. Tastes of slightly sour peaches, has some sweetness, yeast is balanced, just a crazy good beer. Has some floral notes on the end, mouthfeel is crisp and clean. Overall, awesome!
