Had this at great taste, but forgot to review.

It was a nice peach beer with a bit of sour character, but I expected more from New glarus. Waiting in line for 20 minutes was not worth it.

Not worth the price of admission. Delicious but I can also buy a Lipton's peach iced tea for $1.50.

At best this is a slightly soured fruit beer. Calling this a wild ale is a shame. If you like fruit beers you will enjoy this. If your actually looking for a wild ale with any sort of complexity steer clear. This is definitely the last beer I'll be having from ng

The overwhelming aroma and taste element is peach ring candy. Tasty but that slight artificiality was a detriment for me.

Bottle in trade from @jbwimer. Thanks man! Excited for this one. Poured to my Firestone Walker Barrelworks Teku. Pours dark hazy orange with a big fluffy off white head that sticks around a bit with some big bubbles. Aroma is insane fresh peaches, even feels like I can smell the peach fuzz, a bit of dry oak, then more juicy peaches. Flavor follows with a lightly sour fresh peach flavor, hints of oak throughout, just a tad bit of bourbon, a light sweetness. The tart-sweet-dry balance here is rather incredible. Medium bodied, some prickly plus carbonation, sweet and smooth. Yep. This is good. Nobody integrates fruit like New Glarus.

Had at ABR. Remember how peachy it was. This bottle is still the same. This beer does such a great job of bringing the peach flavor into the mix. This is the best fruit sour I've had.

Pours amber-orange with a thin white head. Smell is peach schnapps, gummy peach candy. The smell is good in a way, but not what I expected to find in a beer. Very artificial. Taste follows the nose a bit along with a very slight tartness. I would not call this beer sour at all. Big peach punch at the beginning and then the taste disappears, nothing on the finish. Mouthfeel is light as a cloud, very interesting. Overall I thought this beer tasted very good but was let down by high expectations.

500ml bottle, poured into a teku

A- pours a murky brown orange color with a small creamy white head that reduces to leave some lacing behind.

S- amazing peach nose, it smells like freshly sliced peaches and gummy peach rings. Their is a little bit of funk with some malty notes, bust mostly just fresh peaches.

T- blast of peach on the palate up front with a subtle tartness that immediately kicks in, peach puree with peach skin, dry oak with classic sour brown flavors

M- medium body with low carbonation leads to a tart and dry mouthfeel

O- best peach nose on a beer that I've ever smelled. Drinks like a fine sour brown with fresh peaches

Pours an iced tea amber with a low white head. The nose is completely one dimensional (in a good way) and smells exactly like those candied peach rings that come in a bag. Super sugary peach.
The tastes, as expected, is super juicy and full of extremely sweet peach candy. This definitely does not have a fresh fruit peach taste. Perfumey would probably be another appropriate adjective. Peach candy all the way with hints of a mild earthy grainy dryness in the finish. Drying finish, with a lingering sweetness in the aftertaste.Very frothy but fairly soft carbonation with a little bit of a tingle.
