absolutely loved this one, my first from a new brewery (to me). thanks to claystation for sharing it. its like the peaches my mom used to can in the fall, ripe and ready, but also with a sweet syrup that keeps them fresh through the winter jar after jar. this has a real candied yellow peach aroma and flavor, with the sourness definitely coming second to the fruit, but both are fresh and alive and really nice. the sourness is more than just a lacto hit, its also really old and weird, like other bacterias have taken hold a little bit, but i also dont get much wood on this, so a curious profile there. the peach is super awesome, preserved a little, but preserved freshness if that makes sense, something summery and dynamic, long before the pucker sets it. its not overly sour, not lambic-esque even, just tart. carbonation is bright, but the texture of the peach fuzz remains, leaving even a dry beer somewhat of a linger. i welcome the oddity, this is sick, i want more!

Orangish golden color, streaming tiny bubbles, delicate off-white head; looks good in the glass. Smells like fresh peach, dead leaves, toasty slightly honeyed malt, and a medium strength dose of vinegar. Tastes like vinegary peach, with some honeylike malt. Fairly sour. Mild wood and some leafy flavors in the finish. Maybe overly vinegary, but tasty. Just the right amount of tiny-bubbled carbonation. Glad to try this; thanks Daniel!

Peach colored with a slight haze. Head quickly dissipates. Peaches in the aroma and a bit of acetone. Lots of carbonation and medium body. Flavors become more interesting as it warms. Tart front, peaches show up middle, and as with the aroma, a bit of acetone, some bitterness middle to end. Finishes fairly clean with a little peach lingering.

A: Pours a hazed, dark orange color. A white head rises to over two fingers with good retention. Nice lace is left behind.
S: At first, I get a little bit of a tinny aroma, but really goes away as the warms. That quickly fades to tartness and fleshy peaches.
T: Acidic and tart fruits. Eventually the peaches make their presents, and becomes lightly sweet and fleshy. A tart, acidic bite lingers which works well.
M/D: A light to medium body. Very crisp and effervescent. Though smooth at the same time. The tartness pulls in the cheeks, and makes me want to continue to take sips and finish the bottle.

I had this next to Jester King Fen Tao, and honestly enjoyed this more. The acidic tartness, light sweetness, and crisp carbonation are what I particularly enjoy more then Fen Tao. Neither are world class, but this is slightly more enjoyable for me.

Thanks to JustXBeer for sharing this one at mrbubbler's tasting.

Bottled July 2014.

Pours a hazy dark honey orange with no head. No lacing on the drink down. Smell is sour with malt, honey, fruit, and slight peach aromas. Taste is much the same with sour fruit, peach, acidic, and metallic flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp and dry mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is drinkable, but has subdued peach qualities and the metallic taste I am also getting is odd.

Serving type: bottle.

Hazy peach/orange pour with a small off-white head that dissipates quickly. Really nice lasting sour peach aroma. Flavor follows the aroma with with mildly sour peach flavor standing out very well. Its not overly sour although the sourness does increase as the beer warms. Not much aftertaste but a very light peach flavor that doesn’t last very long. Highly carbonated (maybe a bit too much for my taste). Well done sour.
