Notes/Commercial Description:
We took our double gold medal winning Brainless Belgian, added organic peach puree and aged it in French Chardonnay casks from Sawtooth Winery. Drink from a Pinot glass, serve on the warm side of cold, it develops nicely as it warms displaying more fruit and wine.

4.18/5  rDev +17.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Semi clouded lemony gold color with a tall lathery topping of soft yet firmly set white foam. Tons of lacing coats the goblet with heavy set, thick sheeting.

Aroma is soft and mildly toned with an alluring Belgian candied sweetness of soggy fruit bread, the obvious peachyness, but it also pulls in some dull mango and pineapple tones too. There's a slight dry fruit skin and yeastyness peeping into the nose as well. It's quite nice just not not on the booming huge, explode out of the glass noce I was hoping for.

Alas, the taste is just as good as the aroma with soggy sweet, fruit cake breadyness smeared with peach jam and lightly glazed with caramel. I really dig its overall blend of candied tangy sweetness and bready doughyness along with its minimal dryness of yeast and fruit skin liquesent hoppyness that skirts along the finish.

Feel is firm, smooth, fruity(peach rendered)tanged and sweetened bolder medium bodied with a nice lasting tone that sinks into the palate with a doughy, fruity gooeyness puffed lightly with a well placed dryness of yeasty fruit skin dryness.

I quite liked this "Brainless on Peaches"! It has the doughy, bready maltyness dulled with the peaches that's appetizing. Plus the touch of feathery dryness of yeasty fruit skins really makes for a solid session and the 10.5% is not found anywhere until the bottom of the bomber.
Very solid stuff!

3.99/5  rDev +11.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

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.
