Bottle courtesy of forgetfu. Served in a mini snifter. Pours a hazy light golden-straw color with a short white head and a light bit of lacing. The nose carries a touch of peach and a bit of acidity. Not much depth, and not quite as nice as the Apricot. Flavor has a very mild malt presence plus some peach and a bit of accompanying pit. Light body and a touch of acidity. Okay and without flaws, but not nearly as good as the Apricot.

Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.
Batch 2. Bottled 9/26/12. Bottle # 2.
Pours a murky orange with a foamy beige head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is sour and tart with malt, peach, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with malt and peach flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a solid peach presence that is slightly better in the aroma.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Batch 2, bottled 9/26/12, bottle #397.
Appearance - Pale yellow and hazy body. Thin collar after a small white head.
Smell - Peachy. Acidic and grainy. Lots of white wine acidity.
Taste - White wine is even stronger. Overwhelms the peach, but it's still faintly there. Grain.
Mouthfeel - Light and quite sour. Medium body.
Overall - Really tasty. Tastes like a strong berliner.

Cloudy with a golden color and pinkish hue. Poured from a 22oz bomber shared with two friends. No lace and the head dissipates. Fairly good sour smell, acidity and tart. Taste is similar, with a bit of the peaches shining through. Not as complex and for $22, hard to justify buying again. Nonetheless, excellent tartness and fruit flavor.

Hazy, yellow/gold. Not a lot of carbonation. Especially as you work your way down, it pretty much goes dead flat.
The nose is a nice sour mix of slightly funky brett yeast, sourness (tart green apple, citrus), and a little bit of peachy flavor.
Slightly sour on the front of the palate, fruity in the middle, with a pronounced brett character in the finish. Not harsh, just apparent.
The peach doesn't really come out much until it totally warms up, but even then, it's mild. Still, it's tasty even with only a mild note.
For a warm day, this is a nice tart quencher...however at the current price and availability, you really could never treat it as such.
Not as good as the fromboise, but still tasty. I think I prefer it to the apricot, even if it is less fruity and carbonated.
The guys at AC Golden know both their German lagers and wild ales rather well. Not too much coming out of there that I don't like.
