look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottle # 79 of 432.

Appearance - Very clear pale orange. Tiny fleeting head. Big bubbles cling to the inside of the glass. Thin collar.

Smell - Peachy stone fruit. Estery. Mild acidity. Grainy malt.

Taste - Pleasantly tart. Peaches. Grainy wheat malt. Sourness builds up.

Mouthfeel - Light and nicely sour. Medium carbonation. Very drinkable.

Overall - Tasty, but not very complex.

Almost no carbonation, next to no peach to be found in the aroma or flavor. A drinkable but highly disappointing beer considering how good the plum version was that I had right before.

Thanks to Ray for the share. I missed this bottle release, and after seeing the total sh*tshow that it was, I'm pretty glad I did.

Orange-amber color, slightly amber, with a small bubbly head that disappeared pretty quickly; minimal lacing. Peach and white wine in the aroma, sweet pale malts. Taste was sweet with wildflower honey and peach essence, quite buttery, as in off-flavored buttery, oak, toasted wheat and sourdough. Not really tart at all. Light-medium body, low carb, smooth mouthfeel, but just kind of messy and off overall. A rare "miss" in that F&M's bottle are typically quite good, and sometimes downright great. Kind of sucks for the people that stood in that ridiculous line if all the bottles are like this, but then again, no one said they had to stand in line. heh

Good carb. Huge lacto smell. Slight peach taste, but mostly tart and sour. Wish it was a bit less sour, more fruit forward.

definitely a bad bottle. poured upside down with no carbonation and tasted like a stick of butter was melted in. Really can't believe this got past F&M quality control.

Pour is hazed yellowish amber with a ton of tight white head that lasts fairly long. Nose is super dusty, light peppery spice, with some sweeter ripe peach. Taste is a bit sweet, lots of sweeter ripe peach. The brett and saison are much more mild and hard to pick up. Body is a bit syrupy, carb is a bit low.

375 mL peach color wax dipped bottle. Bottled Dec 7 2013, 66 of 432.

Pours a still dark, hazy deep golden color with a fleeting, clear bubbly head. No lace or retention. Very fruity, wine barrel heavy nose. Peach, vanilla, white wine, honey and light lemon. Flavor has hints of the syrupy peach, white wine spritzer notes of nose at the start before a strong white grape, lemon sourness takes over finishing with a bready/sourdough yeast finish. Brett hasn't done much yet. Thick bodied with "gentle" carbonation, near still. Well, had high hopes for this and was let down with it fresh. However, based on the nose and previous experience with Forest bottles (Dec 12 batch of Solaire Reserve had same heavy bready yeast thing going on fresh and after a few months cleaned up nicely into a lovely dry, crisp saison) I expect this still might turn out to be something nice. Will revisit.

edit: Plum bottle I tried was fine and had no issues. Take this review with a grain of salt. Stupid bottle variation

375ml Bottle #20 of 432. Bottled on 12/7/2013. Served in Goose Island stemmed glass.

Appearance: Pours a darker amber orange color with no head whatsoever. Body is lightly hazy with some fine visible sediment floating.

Smell: Fresh peaches, white grape, oak, green orchard fruit and a hint of honey. Lots of wine barrel character on the nose.

Taste: Tart white grape, oak, peach, mild lactic character, light funkiness with a bready yeast presence that continues from the finish to the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with very low carbonation and a tart dry finish. Drinks easy and alcohol is nearly undetectable.

Overall: Good but not great. There's some good stuff going on here, but this could have benefitted from some additional carbonation. I'll be interested to see how this develops with some additional time in the bottle.
