this is epic beer, and i suspect it wont stay unknown for very long. its so unique, more peachy than almost any other peach wilds ive had, and just sour enough, focusing ore on the funky yeasty brett dry grassy strangeness than on lactic tartness, although i suspect both to be present. the beer is hazy and blonde, with a fluffy white head that slowly fades. nose of fuzzy yellow peaches and bretty funk. some citrus in here, a hint of oak, and a great balance between yeast and fruit that is uncommon in this fruited wild world. more peach than others too, but never is it sweet. the finish is dry and prickly from the bubbles, exactly how i like it. this should blow up and be one of those highly sought after beers, its absolutely fantastic and one heck of an introduction to tahoe mountain for me! i like it just a touch less than the cabernet barrel edition of the same beer.

Thanks to familynight (Reddit) for this interesting beer, shared with rudzud.

Pours a light fizzy head that disappears quickly, lots of bubbles rising up, crystal clear golden lemony yellow color.

Nose brings lots of peach and Brett funk, nice fresh peach and skin, not a ton of Brett funk but a decent funk, little juicy citrus rind like, light saison blond malt. Floral and juicy.

Taste starts quite tart, sour lemon Brett funk, light barnyard funk, sour slight flemmy, etc. Decent peach but not a ton, fleshy juicy fruit peach, etc. Little bitter tannic skin and spices on the back end. Finish leaves a sticky feel, mild dry, lingering tartness, little lemon rind and juicy peach, mild farmhouse Brett funk.

Mouth is med bod, decent fluffy carb, little tart flemmy.

Overall pretty good, nice Brett, wish the peach was more on the taste.

Thanks, Chris.

Pouring a mildly hazy orange hued yellow with a dense, white head with excellent retention and nice lacing, this looks fantastic. The nose is awesome. Big stone fruit character ( closer to apricot than to peach, particularly because of how the sourness is expressed), is noticeable up front. This is coupled with barnyard funk, straw and hay, a little earth, a touch of sulfur and a little white pepper. Awesome stuff, the nose really reminds me of fresh Fou'foune.

The palate opens with a big juicy sourness with a peach character that reminds me of the inner third of a peach that's almost completely ripe - bright, sweet and refreshing but with an undercurrent of unripe fruit, especially on the back half. This is followed by a fruity sweetness on the mid palate, a blend of barnyard and white pepper , honey and straw. The sour backbone on which these flavors are carried is clean and lactic, mildly yogurty, devoid of any acetic notes thatcan make peach sours unbearable with age. Drying on the finish with a crisp, snappy peach flavor, there are lingering flavors of damp hay, a little sulfur and a peach skin tannin bite. All of this works really well too, a refreshing change after the disjointed Shegoat that preceded this. Excellent stuff.

Served on tap at Ale Arsenal.

Hazy and impenetrable.

It smells first of peach fuzz, then of macerated peaches. Light and fruity. Hugely enjoyable.

The taste is exceptional. Light vinegar, pleasant flavors. Exceptionally peachy though. In a tart, fresh, interesting way.

Spritely.

I've not necessarily enjoyed everything these guys have done, but this is exceptional.

Thanks to JLindros for sharing.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice crystal clear golden hue with a thin white head that fades to leave a thin wispy blanket.

S - Aromas of Really wonderful brett and peaches, peach juice, hard candy, funky brett, stone fruit, peach skin.

T - Taste is Really nice funky brett, tart, sour peach, tart pit, good stone fruit, peach skin. Really delicious and funky, but the peach is a bit short in the flavor category.

M - Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated, lighter, crisp, clean.

O - Overall this beer was quite tasty, good brett and peach presence but it really shined in the nose.

A

12oz into a wine glass. Pours a lightly hazed pale golden yellow, minor white head subsides fairly quick but the carbonation feeds the top interestingly throughout.

Sweet Peachy Aroma, like a batch going into the summer ice cream maker. Minor brett and oak but enough to balance the sweet. very nice

Sweet peachy caramel, the flavor evolves quickly over a deep complexity. Excellent dry bite precedes the lingering oaky brett aftertaste. also very nice
Mouthfeel is more than thin.

crisp, refreshing, charming
big points for being a 12oz serving
cheers

Hazy golden yellow. Well balanced carbonation

Aroma was very odd to me, almost medicinal/bandaid quality. The peach was definitely there too though. Unsure what I was picking up, could be their house brett strain that I'm not used to.

Fortunately, the medicinal aroma did not make it's way into the taste of the beer. Really nice flavors. Ripe peach, mild lacto, some apple and a nice balance of oak with some brett funk for good measure.

I wish I had another, because I think this could age nicely. Well done!
