Poured into HF Tulip.

A: Pour reveals a murky shade of copper. Turns up a but if head that quickly fades. Wisps of bubbles linger in rim.

S: Peach candy hits you in the face. Very sweet-smelling. Tangerine/sweet citrus zest.

T: Sweetness upfront. You can tell that this beer is related to the standard NG Fruits. Really nice oaky notes push through the peach juice and a really pleasant dry tartness finishes to balance it out.

F: Really nice carb level. Finishes dry but not mouth-puckeringly sour.

O: Delicious Peach Bomb. The dry tart finish brings balance that I imagine might only improve with a little more time in the bottle.

Tastes and smells like biting into a fresh peach. Nothing short of astonishing.

The aroma hits of straight peach rings with that creaminess, sweetness, candy quality, and almost artificial peach gummy bear flavor.

The flavor follows with that same peach ring flavor, both being candy sweet and creamy. There's then some apple cider vinegar as the Oud Bruin base gently comes through. Medium plus tart and a fun fun beer with that candy quality.

Picked up at the release during the Great Taste weekend last year. 500 ML bottle with the minimalist New Glarus R&D artwork split with my wife.

Three quarters of the bottle poured just for fun & to keep any potential yeasties at bay. Plenty of carbonation & a clear brew that could pass for a filtered amber (& it might be fun to pass it off as one to some unsuspecting Leine’s drinker). The nose is canned peaches, & nothing is getting through that veil of peach. Interesting opening gambit.

Wild Peach, wow, I’m going to keep saying it. Wild Peach. Wild Peach. This kicks ass. The peach melds with the sour tartness like two pieces of a three piece puzzle, laser-etched. Funky wood follows, with a drying earthiness. Bit of white wine on the end. Fritzy & spritzy, & probably the most drinkable wild ale I’ve ever tasted.

This. Is. Amazing. I had a taste of Very Sour Blackberry a while back & it was excellent & this continues the trend. New Glarus might be the new masters in this country of the wild ale. Excellent beer that’s only a spare whiskers away from the elite.
