i'll cut right to the chase
smell, exactly as the name states, I get some peaches and some brett sour funk, little else and not particularly inviting
taste- of course this is not a bad beer, but given the hype and subsequent expectations,this is a huge letdown. it is a one note peach and some light light funk right at the front of the tongue and fades to a dry metallic flavor. I understand this is 10% and I give the brewers a ton of credit for this attempt but certainly falls way short compared to the top dogs in this game. Competing with AWA's of the world and other lambics and guezes, it wouldn't stand a chance.
I always use baseball analogies whenever possible and if you compare this to a top Awa ( RR, LA, guezes) It would be like me facing pedro martinez in his prime, if I am peche n brett and the big dogs of the sour game are pedro.
I will say as it warmed it improved modestly with some more funk notes permeating the palate , but unless you can get it on the cheap and don't have to give up much in a trade, i'd rather just spend that money on some RR varieties with a good sushi lunch .

3.7/5 rDev -16.7%

750ml bottle poured into a snifter. The brew appears a hazy orange with a solid white cap 2+ fingers strong that is composed of large bubbles and holds seemingly throughout the entire duration.
The aroma contains earthy brett upfront with a light fruit essence like apricot/peach but without getting sweet smelling. There is some funk and oak that blend into the brett that almost imparts a feel of sulfur.
The taste includes plenty of wheat and faded fruit that is like peach/apricot skins. It is somewhat carbonic and lightly mineral filled just like the base saison (which I wasnt crazy about.)
This is a lightly watery feeling brew with an abundance of carbonation. It is sadly cabonic an overall just ok. I have tried to approach this brewery with positive anxious thoughts but everytime I try their goods, im left underwhelmed. I would drink this again if given the opportunity but really, I dont see this as anything special or worth going out of your way for. Perhaps this was an off bottle?

Bottle to Blue Palms taster
Shared with GuruDel and MrHyschybar
App- When this came out of the bottle. It was a very dark orange with a bit of a haze to it. The bubbles were a bit small and didnt leave any cling like a normal saison would. The barrel took some of the carbonation away and left more a dark color.
Smell- I was expecting an explosion of deep barnyard "funk" with the oak balancing things out and then the peche coming in to tie it all together. The peche was a bit small on this one and the ABV made for a unique balancing act of aromas on this one. A bit of a crushed damp wheat smell was in there as well.
Taste- Well I have to say I was a bit let down. Maybe I thought it would be more like V010 (Which I havent had) I was expecting maybe this giant peche explosion with a Rayon vert like flavor to just blow me away. I got more of the wood barrel and small funk with only a small bit of peche behind it. Well layered but lacking in "pop" for me.
Mouth- This had a good feel behind it. A bit medium in body with a good amount of thick carbonation with a solid funk residual flavors behind it. The peche didnt stick around for very long and the barrel seemed to dominate again with that crushed wheat flavor.
Drink- It was a good beer, but again didnt blow me away. I think letting a bottle sit, might help. I truly feel this wouldve been better as say a wild ale with more of a light flavor and more peche behind it. I am glad this was at a share and not a traded bottle.
