Pours a dusky light orange. It's quite cloudy. The head is white and small. Fizzes out to nothing after a minute. Very nice label art. I like the color scheme on this one. The aroma is a mix of peaches with light sour and funk. Before it warmed up, there was a definite cheesy note to the beer. The peaches come through with moderate jamminess. Grapes and candied lemons round out the fruit flavor. Delicate, refined funkiness to the beer, beyond the cheese. The taste adds a healthy dose of oak. Quite dry. The peaches are there but even less jammy, more earthy and rustic like the toned down batches of Peche n Brett. Mild sourness, tiny pucker in the finish. Some bitterness from all of that wood. Mouthfeel is light. The beer starts out somewhat effervescent but most of that bubbles away with the head. Solid entry in the Spontan line but definitely not my favorite. I still fervently wish that Mikkeller would start dialing these back to ~5-6% abv, like Spontannoble, which was incredible (to be fair, the Sauternes barrel didn't hurt).

375ml bottle. Why are Mikkeller's labels always just a bit 'off', as it is here, with the gentleman carrying an over-sized slice of peach, which appears to be slathered in ketchup?

This beer pours a hazy, medium golden amber hue, with one skinny finger of weakly puffy, tightly foamy, and faintly bubbly dirty white head, which leaves a bit of island profile lace around the glass as it steadily recedes.

It smells of funky, kind of fruity yeast, peach vinegar (were that a thing), grainy breakfast cereals, a bit of dry white white acridity, and lemony, somewhat grassy hops. The taste is still quite tart, in a mildly funky, orchard fruity sort of way - peach, apricot, cherry, and some ripened apples to boot - a touch of wet cheese from the yeast, hard water, and muddled leafy, earthy hops.

The bubbles are fairly obtuse and hard to really take seriously, the body a sturdy medium weight, and more smooth than I might have imagined, given my experience with the previous incarnations of this offering. It finishes quite dry, still, the denuded peach and other stone fruit carrying on, as the yeast and its attendant funk drops off like a rock cast downstream.

While this is still a fairly tart rendition of the line of 'Spontan-' lambic apers from this brewery, somehow this one falls a tad flat, the guest fruit perhaps not up to the acidic levels of its orchard brethren. Good, I suppose, but hardly worth the stiff shelf tag around these parts, I gotta say.
