Notes: We took our double gold medal winning Brainless Belgian, added organic peach puree and aged it in French Chardonnay casks from Sawtooth Winery. Drink from a Pinot glass, serve on the warm side of cold, it develops nicely as it warms displaying more fruit and wine.

22oz bottle into a tulip. Batch 85, which is no help in determining age (neither was Epic's website)

Looks interesting in the glass. Dull orange body, with heavy carbonation. However, the head fizzes out very quickly and the carbonation is unable to replenish it.

Dull overripe fruit aroma.

On tasting, the above overripe fruit. Seems as if the combination of this and the oak barrel give a slightly medicinal taste. The fruit is certainly not lush, which would have helped. Abv apparent.

Mouth medium, finish boozy sour oak fruit.

Overall, not a fan of this one. 375ml would have been more than enough. Unlikely to finish this.

It was okay. Peach flavor in the beer had a medicinal taste- like peach cobbler soaked in booze. It wasn't terrible but wasn't something I'd spend $10 on again.

Pretty good but I prefer the sour version of this beer!

Pours clear, gold in color with minimal head and high carbonation. Taste is banana, clove, grass, with peaches and white wine on the finish. Sugary sweetness shows as it warms. High carbonation, slightly sweet, dry, with light body. Tastes like a wine/saison mix. Definitely better as it warms. Could have a couple.

24oz bottle poured into glass.
Look: off gold, with medium white head.
Smell: clove, bannana, pepper, and peach.
Taste: clove and banana at first, then peaches. The peaches are more present as the beer warms up.
Feel: strong carbonation stands out, alchol is hidden.
Overall: this beer gets better as it warms up.

Pours a pretty light peachish red with noticeable carbonation and little head.

Oak, peaches, and a touch of funk.

Peachy but not overwhelmingly fruity, the barrel and funk add some complexity and there is a pleasant tartness.

Light-medium bodied, high carbonation, crisp, dry.

Overall, not nearly as good as I was hoping, but decent nonetheless.
