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!
