Serious diacetyl issue with this beer. Smell and taste yield one thing only: artificial buttered popcorn. I've tasted beers that had diacetyl off-flavors before, but nothing like this. No other redeeming values to report, unfortunately. This was a drain-pour. Avoid!

Pours a darkened yellow verging on orange. Quite hazy. Small white head. the aroma is funk, peaches and buttered popcorn. It smells like a rather nice fruit sour with a Significant diacetyl problem. This is the third time that I've tried this beer, all at different places, and I'm gotten the same buttered popcorn note every time. It's a shame because the fruit and sour/funk are pretty good. The taste is relatively dry with some good fruit flavor and medium sourness, but it can't escape that buttery flavor. In particular, the finish has an unfortunate sour butter quality to it. Feel is light and pretty good. I'm just disappointed in this one. There's a good sour in there, but it's overshadowed by that fake butter flavor.

12oz shared by ravot. Thanks!

A. Dull peachy copper, small white head.

S. Light peach, slight vinegar, wet hay, cream.

T. Light oaky tartness, very mild peach flesh, bready from the brett and malt.

M. Light-bodied, light carbonation.

O. This tasted pretty nice. The peach was a bit to mild for me, but besides that this is a drinkable and tasty brett beer.

Thanks to Mad Mike for the share.

The beer is fairly hazy and light apricot hued with a small head. Both the aroma and flavor bring peaches, mustiness, peach skins, earthy qualities. I really enjoyed this. Definitely a unique brew. Lots of fleshy peach skins and juicy character. Present sourness and tartness but also accessible and drinkable, particularly if you enjoy peaches.

Pours out a nice hazed gold with not much head and no lace.

The smell is pale malts and sour fruit all over the place. I can't distinguish peach, but I tried. It was aged for over a year so I understand. I do smell oak and grape, which makes me wonder if it was wine barrel aged.

I taste the peach, and the oak and the pale malt. Very well balanced. Some nuttiness noticed near the end. Light and smooth.

Man, Cali has its sour going on! Russian River, Almanac, and now Ale Industries!!! I love this trend and I love this beer!!! Ale Industries rocked out an excellent sour. I have their Pink Drank coming up next and can't wait!

On-tap at Jupiter during Sour Fest. Served in a small snifter. Briefly review from notes.

Light clear amber body with faint off white lacing and poor head retention.

Aromatics are a lovely combination of juicy summer peaches and spicy funk from the Brett. Despite being 100% Bbl fermented, the barrel notes are suitably subtle and contribute a pleasing sour complexity without overwhelming the blonde base.

The fruit remains prominent in the flavor profile and the sourness is unapologetic without being bracing. The Brett. once again rounds things out with a peppery/earthy finish.

Light, spritzy mouth-feel.

Wonderfully synergistic combination of ingredients - one of the highlights of the festival for me.
