Release #48. Poured from a bomber into a snifter, the beer is a bright, hazy, orange-gold coloring with a minimal white halo of surface head. Aromas of subtle peach, woody notes, earthy backbone, and some Belgian funk. Subtle nose overall, but inviting. Flavors are tart and sweet forward, with a rich peach note front and center. Subtle sourness in the backbone, layered with wood and funk. There is some yeast funk, horseblanket, and herbal tones, too. Pretty balanced and tasty. The body is smooth to start, but between the carbonation and the overall dry feel, it gets pretty crisp into the finish. The aftertaste is rich fruit sweetness. Very drinkable, tasty beer.

batch 42

A: poured into an oversized wine glass to a golden orange with a finger and a half of dense off white head that retains well and leaves excellent lacing
S: smells of peaches, oak, spicy yeast and some fruity esters
T: taste is peaches, pale malt, fruity esters, spice from the yeast, some oak but a lot of peaches. swallow is a little alcohol, more oak, peaches and some fruity esters. Hints of sourness at times as well and the wine barrel presence builds with each sip.
M: medium in the mouth with slightly prickly carbonation and a drying finish
O: This beer has good flavors and complexity. I feel it doesn't deserve to be categorized as a fruit beer but it is what it is.
