i remember loving the veritas 13, which had peaches and nectarines, and was stoked to see bottles of this one at the taproom when we visited. they were pricey, but i had to do it, and i am glad i did. they have decided to make this one somewhat more regularly now, which i think makes a lot of sense, the peaches are so wonderful with their complex wild culture and all the oak thats on this, it makes a unique and delicious drink that was probably ahead of its time when it first came out, but now rests squarely in a popular category and near its highest quality tier. its haze and pale colored from the bottle, lightly orange straw colored with a short white head and some viscosity for what it is. the nose is strongly acidic, surprisingly so, almost over developed from a bacterial standpoint, past lactic to acetic, stinging but not overly harsh, at least not when its cold, but it keeps ramping up as we work through the bottle, the last third of which is aggressively acidic, rough on the teeth and in the belly. there is however a nice mellowing oak richness, subtle honey and vanilla to it, and stronger white wine note, which bring out a lot of the peach and carry it all the way through. the fruit is sweet and ripe and natural and fuzzy, robustly summery and sexy, exciting with the polleny orchard blossoming funkiness of the brett, but i think interrupted just a bit by all the acidity, this would benefit from a reduction of acid for sure. i like the complexity though, and the forwardness of the peach, and hold this in very high regard, i just wonder how well it will age if its already this sour. good carbonation keeps it moving, intensely flavored and very well done overall! i love these guys

750 mL bottle. Hazy orange body. Smells of peach, yeast, doughy malts, and a little rubber. Tastes of peach, doughy malts and strong yeast. Back end is strong tartness and a bit of rubber. Medium body and well carbonated. The rubber is just a bit too strong to ignore. Otherwise, it's very pleasant.

750ml cork and cage bottle, batch 001. Served in a TLA teku glass. Pours a creamy golden-orange body, one finger white head, good retention and fair bit of lacing. Smell is peach fuzz, peach juice, light lemon and bright acetic acidity, touch of woody oak, more peach and a bit of citrus. Flavour is a rich, mildly acetic peach flavour mixed in with a fair bit of oak, vanillin and more stone fruit. Creamy tart peach fuzz, mild-moderate acetic acidity, just about the right amount to let the peach shine without being too sour e.g. Leaner or Fuzzy. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, creamy and perfectly carbonated, soft and pillowy, peach tartness on the finish. Glad they are going to be making this one on a regular basis; it's a wonderful peach wild that holds up to the usual stonefruit suspects.
