This is the rare beer that I actually prefer to drink directly from the bottle. For whatever reason, the peche / peach pops more that way. Drank it that way at a tailgate that was lacking glassware once, and now it 's my preferred modus drinkerus for this beer.

Poured from 12-ounce bottle into a thin-walled glass goblet. Clear amber color, with a couple of fingers of white head. Good head retention, not much lacing. The tartness is understated, as is the peach flavor. Aromas and flavors of light malt, yeast, peach, and green apple. Very low bitterness, and a crisp, dry finish. Overall, this is very refreshing and lip-smackingly good. It would make an approachable choice for someone looking to get into sours.

Poured into tulip pint. Pale yellow color. Nice head that quickly fades.

Nose is like peaches and cream. Taste follows w/ sour. The peach flavor is earthy, almost apricot.

Sour mouth. Low dry finish.

Similar to their gose, but with peaches instead of lime and salt. A creamier sour, good for a session.

Pours a light gold. Smells of yeast, malt and peaches. Flavor is a mild blend of malt and peaches. Fairly sharp carbonation that blends into a moderate tartness. Not bitter or very sweet.

This beer pours a pale yellow with an average head. The aroma features strong, dusty wheat malt notes, along with sour peach and underripe apricot, cheese rind, and a hint of basil. The flavor is mild with a solid but not puckering amount of sourness, with a subtle level of fairly underripe peach, and that hint of romano cheese rind on the back. The mouthfeel is light and fizzy. Overall this a fine sour, but nothing special - the peach is a touch too understated, and nothing really stands out, yet it is too sour to be truly crushable.

Not bad for a hot summer day but I won’t be seeking it out. Seems pretty typical wheat. Kind of sour and a dry finish. Easy to drink. Not much going on and definitely not interesting to me. Pass.
