Received this in a trade. Really fun story behind how this gentleman got this growler fill but here is not the place to post it. Just great story, anyways, shared with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a very dark peach hue amber with a thin blanket of a head that faded to leave a light halo.

S - Aromas of nice stone fruit. Not so much peach but mostly just the pit, very nice lambic notes, musty basement, light vinous notes.

T - Taste is nicely sour, grains, peach pits, acidity is nice. Light almost nuttiness, attorney wheat, sourness is on point, nice acidity, nice lambic. Everything is nice until that grain now congress in play. Not bad, just very unexpected. Super faint flash of oak and vanilla. Very interesting with the grain.

M - Mouthfeel is very nice, very acidic. Lightly creamy.

O - Overall this was a very interesting beer. The wheat notes offer a light creamy note but that said, it kind of detracts a bit from the peach notes. Very unique and fun. Nice characteristics, tasty, would like more peach though.

Big thanks to rudzud for sharing a crazy random never try again beer.

Light fizzy head, little lacing, murky reddish orange.

Nose is big sour lambic, great lambic, sour fruits, stone fruit, musty, mild vinous and touch of cherry like.

Taste sweet candy, fruit, little tartness and nice acidic bite, little chestnut shell, into candy, caramel, sweety grainy and even a little raw brown rice and wheat, really crazy but interesting, nice sourness and light cherry like fruit as well as peach pit and nice acidity, def nice lambic tart fruit. Finish dry and sticky like a nice lambic, nice sour fruit and acidic lingering, light pear and peach like stone fruit, cherry. Little flash of oak and nice acidity.

Mouth is med to lighter bod, big acidic bite, tart fruit, little flemmy, nice carb.

Pretty nice but unique like lambic, not ridiculous or crazy.
