375ml capped bottle into Night Shift stemware. Shared with schen9303.

Great goldenrod color. Near no head. Nose is passion fruit and tart peach. A light acidity with a hint of lemon zest brightness. Nice, straightforward and juicy. Beer opens tart. Hints of citrus fruit, tart peach/apricot and a light oakiness. There's some acidity but its softened by a stone fruit meat sweetness. A foamy funk also fades in and out. This gets less tart as it lingers on the palate, revealing layers of fruit flavor. Pretty good. Body is light with ample carbonation. Prickly and lively on the palate does down down aggressive and filmy with a lingering finish. Nice and light.

As far as the style goes, this is pretty good. Many American Wild Ales tend to be very very sour, hindering any chance of revealing the fruit flavors underneath. This is less so and showcases the stone fruit presence nicely. Worth trying.
