look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

750ml bottle, filled about 3 months prior to the day we opened this. Split with Slatetank and Kegatron during a recent wild ale tasting. Poured into a matching Cantillon long stemmed tulip, this brew appears a clear golden yellow/orange color with a frothy white head that fades. Stringy patches of lace stick to the glass. A light swirl brings up a finger of yellowish stained froth.

The smell of this brew is packed full of fresh juicy peach/apricot character that is quite reminiscent of grandma's jelly. It has almost a floral component augmenting the sweet side of the aroma. A stunning bouquet of sweet, juicy fresh fruit fills the nose. There is a mildly funky backing that comes out more as the brew warms with a little bit of oaked quality.

The taste is tart and fruity with funk and a mild woodsy character. Juicy apricots and peach flavoring reside throughout the mouth with a faint grainy backing. Even as the nose eluded, there is even a touch of floral character to the taste as well. Faintly herbal across te back with an earthy aftertaste of natural peaches/apricots and bacterial funk.

This is a light bodied brew with a modest level of carbonation. Very salivating and extremely satisfying across the board. There is no alcohol inclusion readily apparent despite the brew getting warmer than ideal during the session. I could absolutely kill this beer all day long. I would have no regrets choosing this as the only beer to drink for the rest of my life. A beautiful, perfect aroma is one of the best I have ever smelled in a beer. I strongly consider but hesitate giving this a perfect 5 rating... If a 4.99 rating were possible, that's what I'd give. I was lucky enough to have multiple draft pours of this beer 5 months ago so I knew what I was in for. Opening this bottle exceeded all expectations.
