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!

Huge thank you goes to DrewShal9 for sending me this
750 mL bottle poured into a snifter

A- A clear light yellow with a white one finger head.

S- Sour, touch of funk, peaches, touch of oak.

T- Everything I was hoping it would be. Sour citrus/grapefruit up front, touch of funk and oak, and a big tart peach finish that is just great. Well balanced.

M- Smooth, very crisp, dry, refreshing, light body.

O- A great beer that lived up to what I thought it was going to be when I first heard the name. It starts almost like a nice Gueuze and has a great peach finish. Really hope I can get more. This is my favorite from "The Woods".

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.

750ml, $16.99 into fantome tulip.

A- Big fluffy, delicate white head, 2 fingers. Pale pale yellow body, very light looking. Head is creamy and clings nicely.

S- Aroma is sweet peaches, some mild tartness comes off the top as well.

T- Nice mild lactic sourness, big peachy taste- simple, clean, light, and very satisfying. Lemon tartness is eventually washed away by fresh peach- they must have put a ton of peaches in this.

M- Very light, spritzy, refreshing. Sourness is under control- this can be enjoyed in big gulps and in large quantities. So drinkable. Really impressive.

O- My favorite 'of the woods' beer- even more refreshing than lady of the woods. The glass and bottle disappear in the blink of an eye. So light and tasty, I hope more of this shows up b/c I could drink this all summer long.

Very happy and surprised to find this on tap at Sunset. Appearance is a hazy yellow, no head as poured, but carbonation is noticeable as many small bubbles.

Smell...like sticking your head into a basket of fresh peaches. Incredible. Hint of sourness, but it's all about the fresh peaches here.

Taste: oh, there's the sourness. Nice lactic bite marries with the peach flavor beautifully. This is awesome!

Carbonation is appropriately high, lifting the beer off the tongue and keeping it from being cloying.

This is definitely my favorite of the Cisco sours, it's just an awesome beer. If summer ever actually arrives in New England, the lovely combination of refreshing sourness with light alcohol and high carbonation will make this an especially refreshing summer sour.

Pours into my Funky Buddha snifter a hazy, golden color.

Tart aroma that smells sharply of sweet, fresh peaches. Great nose on this brew.

A thin, glass-coating head rings my glass. The effervescence is biting and backs up the smell. Yes, please.

Slight hints of oak, there go the fresh peaches again, and a punch of funk, like a summer wild ale! Peaches are a great summer flavor and for sour fans, this is a seriously great summer funk. Loving this one. Soft carbonation, works perfectly with the flavor. At 4.8%, I could drink it all day.

I dare a brewery to do this as a summer seasonal, or something like it. Another home run in the Woods series from Cisco. Keep them coming, please!

A-This one pours elegantly into my Duvel Tulip glass. The peach-flesh coloring of the beer is pretty. The head is s more of a quick foamy discharge that dies to a light froth atop the ale. Ample amounts of bubble rise to the top of the liquid with determination.

S-Delicious sour funk of fruits. The peaches are the subtle yet delicious highlight of the nose. Fresh cut wooden aromas waft up from the liquid as well. The funky sourness combines masterfully with the semi-sweet fruits.

T-What a flavor. The truly natural peach flavor comes then passes, followed by a huge sour funk attack. The soft wooden notes add some great complexity to this ale. The tartness lingers excellently. I was worried the flavor might be too peachy, but isn't even close. This is a wild ale first and foremost, the peach flavors only add to the base.

M-Light and rich. Well carbonated. Great feel for the warm weather. The carbonation is great.

O/D-This is amazingly drinkable. The flavors are spot on. Everything about this brew is well done. High price, but worth the try in my opinion. There just is not much to say about this beer that isn't splendid. Overall, awesome job...drinking this far too fast! Got two of them; going to let one age and see how she fares with some age under her belt.
