I actually thought this was going to be a dark beer, so it was a complete surprise when it poured a clear light gold liquid with a loud white fizz that instantly died down to absolutely nothing.

Smell is slightly tart peach cobbler with hints of amaretto and softened mixed nuts.

Taste is a little more acidic than aroma but still in the tart and not quite sour realm, with a little spicy, earthy or almost smokey like Brett character, even if it wasn't intentionally used. I'm tasting peach and raspberry jam, homemade and with some age on it, plus a hint of oak or toffee influenced whiskey. Actually there's a prune taste in there as it warms.

Feel is lightly frothy, yet crisp with a semi-dry finish.

Pours a frosted straw color with barely half a finger of white fizzy head forming on top. Be careful not to blink, as the head disappears nearly instantly, with no lacing left behind. Aroma is a muddled mess of peaches, barrel, and sour funk. Nothing really stands out. Flavor profile is a smidge better, with notes of peaches, barrel, banana, clove, and spicy Belgian yeast esters. Mouth feel is thin, and fizzy. It's neigh on smooth or experience-oriented. Overall, not really worth trying. It's okay. The barrel aging really flattened it, which is strange considering how fizzy it feels. Lackluster aroma and flavor profile though.

Served in a 12oz snifter.

i am always caution of yet intrigued by american breweries throwing around terms like lambic and gueuze, its either super bad or really amazing. this is good, but it isnt stellar, i dont love the wild profile of it, seems a little rushed and one dimensional, more sour than funky, not clean at all, a tiny bit cheesy, especially in the nose, and lacking the wood and funk you see in the best examples of the style. that said, its a pretty cool platform for peaches, which are the focal point of the flavor and easily my favorite element of this interesting and ambitious brew. they are ripe and sweet and juicy, and take over much of the delicate wild nature of the base beer, but it seems to almost be for the best, really summery and fleshy, very forward. the beer is thus quite sweet for a wild ale, but the long lasting peach flavor is super authentic and really nice in this, so i dont mind. the wheaty base and the fresh peach go well together, and the wood on that is nice too. i would like a little more sourness here to balance it, but it a lot nevertheless, and it grows on me as i work through the bottle. good carbonation, long finish. cool to see these guys taking on a beer like this, and i hope they keep pushing with the blends and the wilds, this is a great step in that direction, far more evolved and process intensive than anything else i have had or heard about from urban chestnut.

Got bottles from the brewery. Pours with a 1 finger head that dies in 10 seconds; not carbonated enough and even swirling glass doesn't help. Smell of peaches, malt, medicinal facility and old folks home. PH isn't low enough and doesn't have that sharp tongue tingling bite the style normally has. I really want this beer to be good but it isn't. It is not even "OK" and is simply bad. Flavors are muted and nothing shines out well. Peaches are in there but the beer is a mess and ends up tasting like piss. Will pawn off remaining bottles to unsuspecting people. Not worth drinking

Gold in color with excellent clarity. No head, but there's plenty of carbonation bubbles erupting from within. Aroma is a combination of apples, peaches, champagne, and light crackery malt. The taste is a blend of peach, pear, and lactic acid. The mouth is very heavy, dry, and highly carbonated.

A completely clear, bottle fermented beer...golden yellow in hue with a negligible head. The smell has a chardonnay-like wood and char scent, backed with very subtle fruit. Peach. Refreshingly tart....bordering on sour, with a little bret and belgian yeast flavor. Bitter in the finish, and enjoyable.

Pours a bright clear crisp gold. Similar to the color of peach flesh. Thin white head dissipated almost as quickly as it appeared. Effervescent appearance as you drink it with tons of bubbles coursing upwards throughout.

Smell is funky with some wood character coming through. Some peppery yeast on the nose. Very dry on the nose with almost no hints of peach or fruit.

Taste has some immediate funk with some tart not sweet at all peach flavor. Mild peppery yeast is present on the finish. Not a ton of peach flavor in this one, its there, just not a lot. No sweetness in this and its very dry. has a bit of a metallic aftertaste. The malt really shines through - lots of bread and cracker malts - perhaps a bit too much.

Feel is mild carbonation up front, bone dry finish, so dry its almost bitter.

Overall a good beer, but nothing special.
