look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Served at local watering hole in a 8 oz chalice. First thought was Cuvee des jacobins. Appearance is the reddish-brown one expects and the smell is very similar to other wild ales. However this beer is more tart than typical and definitely a unique taste on the back, perhaps the peaches? It also has more of the yeast 'burn' that I associate with traditional belgian dubbel or triples.

Overall I enjoyed this beer a great deal. The burn made it difficult to consume more than the amount I received, so I rated it lower than perfect. However, I would gladly drink one a day if I could.
