Pours out well, light peach colored, thin head. Aroma was nicely peach, soft, not brace yourself bitter/sour, really enjoyed just smelling this bad boy.

Peach, white wine like acidity and tartness, such a soft touch all over this. Not the biggest beer out there, but this one's delicate hand produced a masterpiece. Drank towards the end of an amazing sour tasting, this one was my favorite. Manages to result in a peach/apricot flavor, ample tartness that is balanced with the fruit, yet a dry finish. Not at all 'sweet'. Just the right amount of just about everything from where I sit.

Thanks jh1982 for breaking this out, liked it even more than the Zomer somehow!

Thanks to my brother for this bottle as a gift! Review from notes.

A: Pours a slightly hazy light yellow/peach (for lack of a better word), color with a small white head on top that fades rather quickly and leaves behind a few spots of lacing.

S: Some tart peach, with some light citrus fruit, light funk, a little bit of oak as well.

T: More peaches up front, a little lighter than I had expected or hoped, but still nice. A very light sourness/tartness here, with a little barnyard funk and oak coming through too. There is a little bit of graham cracker in there as well, sort of like a peach pie.

M: Light to medium bodied, very easy drinking, love the low abv.

O: Liked it a lot, but would have loved it with a little more peach and a bit more sour/tartness in it.

Tim's bottle, thanks for sharing. The white wine version of the woods, Dark Woods being the red wine. So this is the more drinkable one though not as much depth. A moderate head on a very yellow body. Carbonation is right there. Very easy drinking despite sourness, peachy and poached pear in the finish. A fuller mouthfeel. Nice one.

Thanks to ShogoKawada for another episode of The Woods. Poured from a 750mL bottle into my Drie Fonteinen tumbler.

Pale cloudy titanium yellow liquid with a brief heavily active ivory crust which recedes to nothing, though a steady loud stream of bubbles continues rising to the surface. No lacing, no retention, no legs.

Musty sour aroma with a sweet peach note towards the end. Wet wood and fruit continue to intensify and compete as the beer warms.

Tart palate entry grows slowly sweeter almost like a peach ripening across the flavor profile. Never cloying, it finishes medium-dry with just a touch of funk.

Light bodied, very carbonated but spritzy more than effervescent.

A nice choice for Summer, refreshing and subtle.

750ml corked and caged bottle poured into a Cantillon tulip. Shared with schen9303.

Pours a nice 2 finger fine white head with decent retention. Beer is a clear, pale goldenrod. Lacing is spotty with no stick but decent legs. Above average for the color.

Nose is sweet peach puree, some sweet spice, cane sugar, and some musty cobweb. Decently aromatic but missing any sort of robust fruit flavor or funk. A bit strange.

Opens sweet peach. Slightly tart in the middle. Some cane sugar lingers behind sour peaches. End is slightly wheaty and berlingerweisse-like. Finishes tart with a dry, peach skin finish. Decent but pretty bland overall.

Light bodied with ample carbonation. Prickly and slightly dry in the mouth and oily and smooth going down. Finish is dry with a puckering finish. Nice and light.

This beer can only really be described as conservative. Flavor is nice but very soft and mellow. Decent but without any real character and pretty plain overall. I'd revisit this one but not at the price point.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Slight haze to an orange body. Nice white head. Thin collar.

Smell - Peach. Intense acidity. Nice peach, but it does smell very acidic.

Taste - It's pretty sour. It still retains a nice peach flavor, though. Oaky. Sweet peach before the sourness takes over. Not acetic, but it isn't a light sourness.

Mouthfeel - Medium low carbonation. Very sour without being over-sour.

Overall - It's all peach and sourness, but that isn't a bad thing.

Big thanks goes out to beermeX2 for sharing this one at a recent tasting! Served from bottle into a Mikkeller taster flute. Poured a slightly hazy golden yellow with a one finger pure white head that subsided to a minimal amount slowly. Maintained excellent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, peach, wood, and funk. The flavor was of sweet malt, peach, subtle sour, and subtle tart. It had a light feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a fairly good brew. I have to say that the peach is definitely the start of the show. The sour and tart aspects are very subdued which makes this one very easy to drink. Really wish I had a growler of this to crush as it would be no problem at all. Definitely worth trying if you get the opportunity!
