[Suggested Glassware: Tulip Glass]
The pour was a hazy golden orange with an average (1-2 finger) white frothy head that quickly diminished, down to a light wispy film and small collar with fair runny lacing.
The aroma was of a light cereal malt and a funky Belgian yeast with notes of overripe peaches, candi sugar, oak cask and a light white wine odor.
The taste was on the mild side with a lightly sweet malty flavor along with a hint of candi sugar and a light peach presence which was present throughout, progressing with a decently strong dose of yeast, a hint of cask and a somewhat bold alcohol tinge at the end. The flavor lasted a long time proceeding the swallow, with the fruity yeasty taste fading almost entirely leaving way for the strong alcohol taste to take over.
Mouthfeel was light in body and mildly dry in texture with a prickly carbonation.
Overall I was expecting a bit more from this beer being it has won a few medals. Although it was decently tasty and easy to drink, the flavor wound up being more about the high alcohol presence than anything else...

Batch #25 (brewed Nov. 7, 2012; bottled Apr. 30, 2013) bomber into oversized burgundy glass at fridge temp, allowed to warm.
Look: monster head that just won't quit, super-active carb. Peachy color.
Smell: Belgian yeast, peaches, maybe a hint of oak.
Taste: lots of Belgian yeast esters, black pepper, with a decent hint of peaches in the background. Not getting any barrel character, nor any Champagne, and barely any sour.
Feel: creamy. Not too dry. Pretty good.
Overall: not sure how the year in the bottle treated this as I never got to try it fresh, but this seems better than its BA score would indicate. If you want a peach bomb or a sour, look elsewhere, but if you want a beer that highlights Belgian yeast with a hint of complementary peachiness, this should do nicely.
