Pours a hazy golden color with a white head and plenty of lace. Aroma of Belgian yeast and some chardonnay notes. Flavor follows the nose with some peach flavors along with Belgian yeast and wine notes. Mouthfeel is full bodied and smooth, pretty nice. Overall, its a decent Belgian ale aged on peaches, though the sum may not equal all the parts. It is a strong beer though, and that has to be respected. This beer is best in small doses.

Release #80. 10.5% ABV. Pours a flat, pale golden hue. Not much too look at but giving this brew the benefit of the doubt due to the style it's going for. (Which is...?)

Smell has a light sourness, along with some yeasty funk and dry wood. Very faint peach and apricot.

I decided to drink this more like a carbonated wine more than anything at this point. Tons of dry wood from the oak, tons of bubblegum and clove, tons of white grape, tons of spice, a bit of peach skins and apricot. This brew has flavours all over the board, not necessarily in a good way. The peaches that are on ad here are blanketed by the mess of other flavours at play here, not to say it tastes bad, but tastes confusing. The balance is just not there.

Finishes surprisingly light for the ABV and overly dry. An interesting, overly priced brew.

Pours an effervescent gold with a sliver of beige head that rapidly falls away. Zero head retention & lacing

S: Apricot, pear, peach & little phenol, some apple blossom

T: Peaches, pears, apricot & yeasty/white peppery notes, a wisp of booze up front. Apricot & peach, a little dryness, a little phenol as this warms, plus some booze warmth. Finishes with peach, & apricot, slight tartness

MF: Medium body, slight carbonation, warming

Drinks alright, but I really don't feel like these beers are really in their wheelhouse, might work as entre' to new comers though
