Thanks to mrbubbler for sharing this one at Retsinis' tasting.

2013 vintage.

Pours a murky light orange with a foamy white head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is sour with malt, peach, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with peach and acidic flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp and dry mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a tasty but quite sour peach presence.

Big thanks to TimDisaster (reddit) for this one, should be awesome! Shared with rudzud.

Light fizzy head, fades very quickly, hazy murky peach color. 4

Nose very tart sour funk, lots of lambic like funk and sour fruity notes, peach is light though, little peach skin and juice, rind funk and Brett like funk., big vanilla toasty barrel too, and generic stone fruit. 4.25

Taste brings more lambic notes, sour fruit, grainy bready Brett L funk, into big barrel, tons of toasty oak and little vanilla, etc. Light generic stone fruit, little peach, more flesh and skin of stone fruit, little yeasty bready funk. Finish is dry bready yeasty, lots more toasty oak, little flemmy, very light stone fruit. 4

Mouth is med to lighter bod, nice carb, little flemmy little acidity. 4

Overall great base lambic and great toasty oak barrel, but no peach!375

Bottle thanks to Daniel at cottonwood! Thank you sir!

white head. Color is a hazed golden orange.

Flavor profile: a lot is sourness. Acidic and tart. Lots of fresh peaches. Has a wheat base. Some lemon citrus and a touch of spice. Some funkiness.

Mouthfeel: tart and clean. Light bodied with a higher amount of carbonation. Ends clean.

Overall, awesome sour! Very drinkable. The peach flavors were great.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy yellow body. Small white head that becomes a very thin collar.

Smell - Peach and a little bit of vanilla. Wheat. Lemon acidity. Some oak.

Taste - Peach is less intense. More grain and strong sourness. Lemony. A little oak.

Mouthfeel - Very light and well carbonated. Kinda spritzy.

Overall - Very enjoyable if uncomplex.

On tap at the brewpub.

A: Pours a bright and gorgeous hazed golden/orange color. A two finger white head forms with good retention, and some patchy lace is left behind.
S: Fresh, fleshy peaches. A little tannin like with some fruit skins. Tart, acidic lemon. The acidity and amazing fruit aroma work perfectly together.
T: Follows the nose. Big fleshy, peach skin, tannin like flavors. The juicy peach is incredibly fresh and vibrant. Tart and acidic, with a bit of biscuity malt in the back. Amazing.
M/D: A medium body that is crisp and effervescent. A puckering, dry, tartness sucks in the checks and makes me want to keep coming back for more. Clean, crisp, and refreshing. So easy and enjoyable to drink. Everything works perfectly here.

One of the best I have had in Texas. Just an all around well done Wild Ale, and a wonderful experience.

Thanks to JLindros for sharing. 2013 vintage

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice hazy golden hue with a thin white head that fades to leave thin wisps and a light halo 4.25 (x .05 = .213)

S - Aromas of the usual sour blonde base, light malts, tart sour acidic notes, very faint wine barrel notes. The peach is nearly non-existent, more genetic sour stone fruit. 3.25 (x .2 = .65)

T - Taste is quite sour, with nice lambic notes and nice vanilla from the barrels, good wine too. Like the peach is really, really soft and faint. It's tasty but really soft on the peaches, more generic stone fruit really. 4 (x .45 = 1.8)

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, which is appropriate for the style. Solid 4 (x .1 = .4)

O - Overall this beer, while good, was rather disappointing due to the lack of peaches on both the nose and taste. Really glad to try it though 3.5 (x .2 = .7)
