A corked & caged 750 mL bottle from FluffyMcTingle; thank you very much! Poured into a DFH signature glass...

Pours out a light, vibrant yellow color with straw hues. A thin layer of bubbly, frothy white head develops, much less than expected actually. There is an eternal evolution of bubbles from the base of the glass that creates a mesmerizing tide of birthing and decaying bubbles in a central patch on the surface of the liquid. The aroma is of tart peach, some funky yeast, straw, various grains, and the slightest wood character, though oak doesn’t come to mind (pine, cedar?). It tastes of tart peaches, oak (the barrel is a bit more prominent in the flavor), straw, citrus, and pear. Not overly sweet, which is great, and very well balanced. Mouthfeel is crisp, though it feels a touch under-carbonated and finishes dry and a bit sticky. Overall, a delicious, easy-drinking wild ale that is worth seeking out.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Date: 4/5/4
Location: Half a Time Mamaroneck
Glassware: Tulip
Appearance: Orange in color. Takes in lots of light and is see through. Pours with a very large head that dissipates quickly. No carbonation on top but a small viscous head that does not cling yo the sides.
Aromatics: The sour yeast is very strong and tart. The peach smell comes through with some dry hay. As the beer warms it builds must.
Flavor: Very tart and musty. Lots of peach flavors. The acids are very strong as well. Very light oak.
Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel is very acidic and causes the mouth to water. There is a medium oiliness that keeps the tart flavor on the tongue.

Bottle pour at the tasting at la casa de dirtinabottle.

Pours a murky orange, with a half inch fizzy head and not much lacing.

Smells incredible, fresh peaches- peach juice, peach flesh, with lots of sour aromas as well.

The taste is quite sour. However, it is highly carbonated and fizzy, which blocks out a lot of the sourness. The peach flavor is great, but slightly more subdued in the taste than in the flavor. The sour peach flavor stays on your mouth and lips the whole session.

Light to medium bodied, crisp mouthfeel, highly carbonated.

Starting to get more into sours, this was nice.

2013 bottle opened March 2014.

A - Bright clear gold body. Little retention with no lace.

S - Straight, deliciously tart peaches. One of the best fruit notes I've ever smelt in a beer. Touch of floral nectar on the backend.

T - Holy crap... flitch-inducingly sour. One of, if not the, tartest American Wilds I've ever had. Bracing lemon, peach pits, crisp tart unripe white peaches, orange rind, and agave. Crisp peach flavor permeates the profile and lingers through the finish as the aggressive sour-warhead character subsides.

M - Strikingly sour with a crisp light frame and a fruity finish.

O - To me, deep in the soul of an American Wild Ales is a brash, uncompromising, and boldly unbalanced sour core. Pechish Woods embraces that core and showcases it against a deftly selected fruit backdrop.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Hazy, pastel peach with yellow highlights and a slight, quickly dissipating white head that leaves no lace.

Very fresh, faint peach. Quite fruity with light yeastiness and some lactic sourness.

Pechish Woods was far less sour than had been hoped for. Light peach and apricot added a nice, sweet-tart balance. Oak and light vinegar with acidic lemon were also noticeable. The finish was long, tart and acidic.

A woolly texture is surprising here. A light body, no discernible alcohol, and effervescence were as expected.

This is a nice beer for warm, mild, sunny days on Nantucket. I enjoyed it with friends while waiting for dinner. Pechish Woods stops short of the outrageousness one often finds in wild ales.

Big thanks to Mike for this one!

A- Murky golden hue, minimal lacing, very minimal.

S- Def get the peach upfront. Some funk to follow.

T- Tart sour peach. This is good, but we had Fou last night; so that is my standard.

M- Decent amount of carb making it hard to figure out the complexity.

O- A great brew! Thanks again!

This tasty treat was supposed to go out in a trade, but it was replaced by the kriek. So now its mine to review and enjoy!
A light golden liquid pours with champagne excitement, with a big and bubbly head that lasts just a little but fades to nothing, left to be a slightly hazy constant stream of bubbles. The aroma clouds the vicinity as soon as the cork is popped, distinctly funky brett and lacto. Putting my nose close to the class reveals a crisp lacto tartness, blended with a delicate sweet peach. The funk is very close to a berliner weiss, and there is also a grainy wheat-like aroma that is similar as well. That faint sweet peach comes through nicely, without a harsh vomit character that always keeps me away from the lesser known peach sours. On top of the peach, is a good even tartness, no vinegar, just pleasant! Very light bodied, owing to high carbonation and a good level of tartness. Overall, I ended up pleasantly surprised and very happy. A tough price tag to swallow for an untested beer of a flavor that I dont typically enjoy, but this baby came through.

Bottle I brought to share at Skuter's tasting.

2013 vintage.

Pours a murky honey orange with a foamy beige head that fades to nothing. No lacing on the drink down. Smell is sour with malt, peach, peach jelly, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with peach, peach juice, and acidic flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with nice fresh peach qualities all around.
