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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Batch #25 (brewed Nov. 7, 2012; bottled Apr. 30, 2013) bomber into oversized burgundy glass at fridge temp, allowed to warm.

Look: monster head that just won't quit, super-active carb. Peachy color.

Smell: Belgian yeast, peaches, maybe a hint of oak.

Taste: lots of Belgian yeast esters, black pepper, with a decent hint of peaches in the background. Not getting any barrel character, nor any Champagne, and barely any sour.

Feel: creamy. Not too dry. Pretty good.

Overall: not sure how the year in the bottle treated this as I never got to try it fresh, but this seems better than its BA score would indicate. If you want a peach bomb or a sour, look elsewhere, but if you want a beer that highlights Belgian yeast with a hint of complementary peachiness, this should do nicely.
