4.08/5  rDev -6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance- Pours up a good amount of head which doesn't have much retention. The head is a pure cotton white while the body is a hazy, pale amber to straw color that shows some golden and lemon hints in the light. Leaves no lacing behind.

Nose- Fairly subtle- I wonder if the peaches may have already faded. There is a smooth and rounded peach aroma but it isn't as strong as I would have expected. Acetic acid, vinegar, and a slight tartness. Some straw and a tiny amount of funk. Swirling shows a brighter peach note.

Taste- Shows peach right on the front which seems a little green. There also seems to be a bit of saltiness which I didn't expect but works well as the middle shows minor notes of straw and funk which proceed into a rounder and fleshier peach finish. I am surprised by the tame nature of the acetic acid. It's there but it does not induce puckering and I should be able to drink this pretty easily. That's probably not what a hardcore sour fan would want to hear but I'm quite alright with it. Not as complex as many sours but still maintains good presence with a wonderful sublimity which comes from the excellent balance and integration. This beer doesn't hit you over the head but it is to be enjoyed for its refined character. The nice dry finish with vibrant fruit makes this seem like a good candidate for a white wine drinker. I don't know where the saltiness comes from but it enriches this beer more than any other note and works well with the slight notes of straw and funk. Almost reminds me of the sea to a certain extent. A really good to great beer but closer to really good. Some spice, think coriander and white pepper. Some citrus notes of orange and lemon as well.

Mouthfeel- A little more than light bodied with some carbonation that has a little bit of effervescence and a little bit of a tingle. Dry finish really ties the flavor profile together.

Drinkability- Fairly accessible for a sour and one that I would offer up to a novice if it weren't so expensive. Pretty easy drinking. I might not buy this again to drink but I'm sure I will buy more next year for trades.

Overall- Really good to great beer but closer to really good. Not as much presence as many of the beers in its style but still very enjoyable. I don't think it lives up to the hype that creates lines but I do understand the appreciation for this beer. Definitely worth a try and I would give it another go if I saw it on tap. But I would not pay 20 bucks for a bottle for myself.

Bottle: Poured a cloudy orangey color ale with a medium size white head with ok retention and some light lacing. Aroma of light fruit notes with some tart notes that are easily discernible. Taste is a mix between some light apricot notes with some tart notes with a light funky finish. Body is somewhat full with good carbonation. I must admit that my expectation were quite high but this seems to lack the complexity I was anticipating.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

this is a delicious beer, not as sour as a lambic, and a little more body to it, but in that same flavor family. the pour is pale as they come, washed out straw color with a tall inch of white creamy head. the peaches aren't as prevalent in the nose as they are in the taste, but what is in the aroma is a very cool wild yeast, a heavy oak profile sweet and mellow, and a blossoming fruity element, although not specifically peach. the taste tarts out a little pucker but softens quickly into a peachy sweetness supported by pale malt and a very dry yeasty finish with a faint hint of white pepper or some other delicate spice used tastefully in moderation. the peaches are not dominant, but accentuate the beer well. fuller bodied and rounder for such a light offering, expansive, and fuzzy on the tongue almost like the outside of the peaches themselves. not very well carbonated, but it really doesn't demand that, the peaches make the feel unique and delicate, while being full enough to hold up all the flavors. i would use maybe touch more peach in nose and taste here, but the subtlety is noted and appreciated. excellent beer, the best I've had from upright by quite a margin.

Bottle, batch 2. Thank you, Brian.

The first pour is mostly clear, orange in color with a choppy white head that falls off to a disk rather quickly. The nose has a beautiful peach character. Fresh, ripe, juicy, fleshy and fragrant, the peach expression here is just astounding. The Brett character is moderate as well, with a blend of clove phenols, a moderate barnyard note and a sharpness that complements the peach skin note very well. As it warms, there's a little bit of a vanilla sugar note, along with some musk.

The palate opens crisp and clean, light and airy, with a blend of peach fruitiness (strong in character but with finesse), a light and appropriate sourness (mostly lactic with a touch of Brett-derived acids). The peach character is really excellently expressed, bursting with ripe fruitiness without devolving into a jammy, syrupy beer. Drying on the finish with a blend of earthy, grassy hay, Brett, and, of course, peach, this is excellent. I also get a touch of vanilla and oak tannins on the finish. Light in body with moderate carbonation, this beer is just wonderful. Highly recommended.

Big thanks to oregonskibum for yet another gem from the PNW I have been privileged to enjoy thanks to his generosity and taste,

A cloudy, dark straw pour is topped briefly by a finger of white foam that relaxes to a nice skim and big bubbled ring. Nice.

Citrus and earth, yeasty, fruity tart, light hormonal, neutral sweet, and lightest hint of grain in the sweet to make an aroma that beckons my lips like honey bees to clover.

To me, the keys to a wild ale's greatness are the sour to accompany the brett, and the flavors of the brett, This has sour that is marvelously not vinegary, perfectly tart to wake the taste buds to the other flavors that accompany. Here those flavors are amazing. Citrus that is neither too lemony nor sour, grain sweet that is just there enough to highlight, earthiness that doesn't get down into the dirt, and a light, hint of hormonal funk that doesn't overpower. Lightest peach notes, and even lighter oaky hints come out more as it warms. In short, this is the finest wild ale I have tasted, and not to give this a 5 for taste would be criminal. I don't think American Wilds can hit it closer to perfection than this.

Mouthfeel is spritzy and light, coating while staying clean and bright, with a finish that is excellent.

One off the finest Wild Ales, perhaps the best. Refreshing and stunningly delicious. Get this if you can, it will not disappoint.

A - Light golden orange with a haze. Small white head to it

S - Sweet juicy peaches. Light tartness and lactic acid

T - Peach up front, sour tartness and a light funk that gives it some blue cheese /farmhouse

M - Light carbonation and lighter body. Slight funkiness that lingers on in the finish

O - Solid peach beer but not as much as I'd like. Lighter sour presence as well. Would have liked to have a bit more peach and tartness

2nd batch, Thanks @suncrust, split

Bright body, soapy head retention - decent amount of brett, tart, peach, lactic and a touch funky. Light-bodied with a slightly dry finish - very drinkable and very good. Would definitely be interested in snagging some bottles in the future though its seems the release-hype may be a bit excessive

2013 vintage. 750ml white waxed bottle into a HF over sized wine glass.

A - Pours a hazy...well its a peach colored body. An initial fingers worth of soapy foam with large bubbles forms but settles into some edging pretty quickly. Decent lacing with minimal retention. The peach color though, man does it look good. Swirling the dregs for the final pour gives it an amazing fruit smoothie look.

S - Super funky brettanomyces and lactic acid followed by over ripe peach juice. There is a subtle, almost spicy vanilla thing that I get on the very end that I would imagine is coming from the barrels.

T - That distinct brett funk followed by a wave of lactic acid twang. This goes head to head with sweet peach juice and a touch of oak. Lightly sour with a long lasting juiciness. This is a very drinkable beer and something that is perfect for the warmer months. Mouth feel is crisp and lively while maintaining a medium body.

O - This beer is excellent. Truly one of the best American Wilds I have had the privilege of trying. I wish I had it a bit fresher as the peaches are sort of playing second fiddle to the critters, but god damn is this a tasty beer!

Opened at 4/20 tasting.

Pours a hazy bright yellow, solid layer of white head.

Smells of lots of sweet peach, then lactic tartness, hints of funk.

Similar in taste--lots of sweet peach, dry and moderately sour, touch of brett.

Good carbonation and drinkability, nice refreshing sour.

Great beer, probably slightly overrated but still plenty good.

This is a very nice, easy drinking beer. Thanks to starrdogg for bringing this over to taste.

The look is great, it has a super hazy golden look, almost like a peach juice with a bit of head and some floating bubbles. Very nice.

The smell and taste resemble each other in a big way, tons of fresh peaches and nice oak touches, a very composed saison like malt and feel. Some nice yeast notes and even more beautiful fruit notes. Just a really easy drinkable nice beer, but not really tart like you'd expect a 'wild' to be.

Another very nice beer.

750ml bottle from the 2013 release poured into a Lawson's tulip. Another bottle graciously shared by JD (shawdeuce22) at his birthday tasting.

A- Pours a translucent golden with decent carbonation and a thin white head that forms that has nice retention.

S- Fresh peaches, peach skin, some subtle brett, fairly aromatic.

T- Peach juice, fuzzy peach skin, some subtle brett funk that balances nicely with the peaches, finishes with a very light sour peach presence.

M- Has a light feel to it but is fairly full bodied, slightly dry, refreshing, extremely drinkable. Feel fits perfectly with the fuzzy peach presence.

O- This was a fantastic peach wild ale and it is hard to decide if I like this better the Peche n' Brett or Persica, the later which we drank right before this. Persica definitely had more of a funk presence, probably because it had longer for the brett to come out. I really liked the fuzzy peach skin presence and drinkability on Fantasia though. I could easily drink this all the time and wish it were easily available to me.

Bottle of Fantasia, shared amongst a few friends.

Upon pouring into a small tulip glass, the appearance is bright orange with a small white head. Its` nose contains barn funk, peach, brett. Taking this back for a sip and I taste more of those peaches, tartness, it does make your mouth pucker a bit. It tastes very good, very glad that my friend brought this out. Mouthfeel is medium level, nice carbonation, finishes very crisp. Some tartness lingers afterwards. A very good sour style beer from Upright, would recommend trying to grab a bottle.

Cloudy peach colored body. Fluffy head on this small pour. Cap and collar. Splotchy lacing.

Sour tart lemongrass funk aroma.

Unmistakable peach flavor. Less tart than the nose alluded to.

High side of carbonation but appropriate. Medium mouthfeel.

Would be a great beer on a hot day, in relatively small doses. Smell and peach flavor takes the cake. Thanks 4DAloveofSTOUT!

750 ml bottle generously shared at the Peg's tasting on 3/8/13.

A- Pours a hazy golden color, white head with a bit of lacing.

S- Huge peach aroma, the fruity, juicy aromas are huge and delicious. Also has some lactic funkiness and fruity yeast.

T- Similar to the aroma, loads of fresh peaches, has a nice lactic sourness that balances the fruit, mild oak and some yeasty funk.

M- Medium-bodied, smooth feel with a dry, tannic finish.

O- A really tasty peach beer, the peach flavors are really awesome, while the tartness is moderate but also very nice. Definitely a beer worth seeking out.

Thanks to Ron for bringing this one along. Fantasia pours a cloudy, golden-yellow color topped off with a foamy white head that fizzles almost like the foam on a soda as it settles down to nothing but a ring. Lots of carbonation on this one, it seems, as a swirl of the glass produces a loud fizzling noise.

The aroma is a nice mixture of lightly sweet fruits with some funk in the under-body. As far as the fruit goes, I'm picking up some green apples, lemon zest, and peach. The peach starts of small, but becomes the most prominent fruit as the beer starts to warm up just a bit. Some light funk aromas from the yeast join with a faint oak and wet wood combination. There's a bit of acidic tartness on the nose, but not much, and certainly not enough to make me believe this one will be puckering - I guess we'll see.

Fantasia has a very light tartness and sour quality to it - just enough to kind of tingle the senses, but not enough to alienate someone who's easing their way into the world of sours (something Beatification might do). It's very "smooth" on the palate and easy to vibe with, but still provides a reasonably nice sour character for the long-time sour fanatics.

The peach and green apple flavors seem to "pop" the most - especially the peach. The slight tartness turns into a lasting sweetness; ripe peaches, juicy green apples, and pears. The finish combines with a bit of funky yeast and that same wet wood and oak presence that was picked up in the aroma. Medium bodied, smooth and soft, highly carbonated with an almost dry finish.

Very tasty beer, although it may be slightly overrated. Though having this almost back to back with a Beat Batch 05 probably wasn't fair to Fantasia. Nevertheless, still a great beer and a very good one to introduce people to the world of wild ales and sours, though it's not necessarily an easy one to get, especially in the Midwest.

Bottle thanks to Tom, poured into a Funky Buddha snifter.

Pour: Semi hazy bright orange, with a finger of head that quickly dissipates to bubbles around the edge. Some lacing.

Smell: Incredible. Huge lactic funk up from, lots of pears, lemons, citrus, and peaches. Lots of oak and a white wine presence.

Taste: Equally awesome. A really nice lactic sourness up front, that quickly gives way to bright citrus, pear, lemons, and peaches. Lots of funk. A definite oak at the finish, with some white wine, lactic tartness, and funk.

Mouthfeel: Ridiculously drinkable. Tartness is just right for me. Great smooth carbonation.

Overall: One of the best fruited wilds I've had. Better than Peche N Brett if you ask me.

750mL bottle into a saison glass. Thanks again Bambinos for this unexpected, undeserved surprise. You rock!

Pours a slightly hazy golden color w/ a 1-finger white head that settles to a thin film. Lazy carbonation rises from the bottom of the glass.

Aroma is bretty, tart and funky, a little vinous. Not picking up much specific peach on the nose but there is a vaguely fruity sweetness here.

Taste is super dry, tart but not vinegary or even especially sour. White wine and oak, again a nice fruitiness that I'd be hard-pressed to identify as peach if I didn't know what it was. It's not sweet like I'd expect from peach.

Mouthfeel is so dry, crisp and clean. So refreshing and light. Just a little prickly on the finish, but carbonation is a little less than I expected.

Overall a really unique beer, unlike any I've had. Seems to blur the line between beer, wine, and fruit juice. I would drink this regularly if I could.

Thanks to Paul for sharing this one at the mini Peach sour tasting.

A: Pours a slightly hazy orange (probably because my pour was from closer to the bottom of the bottle), with a bubbly white head on top, about 1 finger in height. Quick reduction to a ring around the top.

S: Light peaches and apricot upfront with a touch of tartness. Plenty of funk mixed in on the aroma, light vanilla and faint oak. Not as tart as I was hoping.

T: Similar to the aroma, nice peachy flavor mixed with funk. Slightly acidic with a bit of lemon. Slightly floral as well. The oak comes through a little bit with more barnyard funk.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

O: Quite good, but compared to PnB, just wasn't as good as I was hoping. I think a bit more sour/tartness would really do it wonders.

750 ml bottle poured into Meantime tulip.

A: A pale, clear beer with orange highlights. A moderate pour yields about a 1.5 finger, off-white head which slowly recedes but leaves a frothy covering atop the beer. Lacing all the way down the glass.

S: A good amount of lambic funk up front, followed with a definite peach presence. A nice sour tartness is perceptible as well and hints at this one being crisp and dry.

T: Peaches! Juicy and sweet. Not overwhelmingly sour or funky (for my tastes, I could use a bit more in that department). Finishes dry with a lemony sourness and leaves the tongue with lingering funkiness.

M: Effervescent and light bodied. What I would expect from a sour.

O: The peach presence in this one is the real standout and makes for a memorable drinking experience. However, I could stand for the funk and sour qualities to be a bit more pronounced. If I were to acquire another bottle of this, I would lay it down for awhile to see if time brings those out a bit more.

Batch 1, into a Cascade globe.

Appearance. pours a nice glowing peach-gold with a little haze and a thin white head.

Smell. Plenty of that nice classic lambic funk, fresh sweet peaches, some nice old oak and even a bit of vanilla. Yum!

Taste. Wow! Just a ton of bright peaches. More peach skin than flesh probably due to the accompanying light tannic woodiness, but enough sweetness to give it a really fresh fruit taste. Very light and soft funkiness goes very well with the fruit. Medium-low level of sourness. Really awesome tasting.

Mouthfeel. Medium-light bodied with low+ carbonation.

Overall. Really digging this one. The big fruit flavour along with the incredibly nice levels of funk, wood, light sweetness and lower acidity make this delicious and easy drinking.

On a side note, I'm absolutely thrilled of the fact that my two year old decided to fill his diaper in a diabolical way as I was half way through this review. Glad to have had a few sips before that filled the room. Ahh, the joy of having kids...

S: WOW... peaches were very noticeable upfront in the aroma with a bit of brett barnyard funk, lemony citrus acidic character with good oakiness and a little vinegar coming through as well.

T: peaches greatness was more dominant on the palate alongside sour acidic lemony twang, nice oaky wood accents, bretty barnyard funk that added good dimension to it with a touch of vanilla and subtle vinegar notes.

M: the brew was medium in body with a moderate amount of carbonation which had a fruity, funky, oaky, lemony citrus,sour and mild dry finish.

O: definitely exceptional all the way around, glad I got to try it and from what I hear is the peach fruit was more potent fresh. Hmmmm
