Thanks to mrbubbler for sharing this one at Retsinis' tasting.

2013 vintage.

Pours a murky light orange with a foamy white head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is sour with malt, peach, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with peach and acidic 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 a good beer with a tasty but quite sour peach presence.

Bottle thanks to Daniel at cottonwood! Thank you sir!

white head. Color is a hazed golden orange.

Flavor profile: a lot is sourness. Acidic and tart. Lots of fresh peaches. Has a wheat base. Some lemon citrus and a touch of spice. Some funkiness.

Mouthfeel: tart and clean. Light bodied with a higher amount of carbonation. Ends clean.

Overall, awesome sour! Very drinkable. The peach flavors were great.

Big thanks to TimDisaster (reddit) for this one, should be awesome! Shared with rudzud.

Light fizzy head, fades very quickly, hazy murky peach color. 4

Nose very tart sour funk, lots of lambic like funk and sour fruity notes, peach is light though, little peach skin and juice, rind funk and Brett like funk., big vanilla toasty barrel too, and generic stone fruit. 4.25

Taste brings more lambic notes, sour fruit, grainy bready Brett L funk, into big barrel, tons of toasty oak and little vanilla, etc. Light generic stone fruit, little peach, more flesh and skin of stone fruit, little yeasty bready funk. Finish is dry bready yeasty, lots more toasty oak, little flemmy, very light stone fruit. 4

Mouth is med to lighter bod, nice carb, little flemmy little acidity. 4

Overall great base lambic and great toasty oak barrel, but no peach!375

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy yellow body. Small white head that becomes a very thin collar.

Smell - Peach and a little bit of vanilla. Wheat. Lemon acidity. Some oak.

Taste - Peach is less intense. More grain and strong sourness. Lemony. A little oak.

Mouthfeel - Very light and well carbonated. Kinda spritzy.

Overall - Very enjoyable if uncomplex.
