Pours a clouded amber to orange color with a fizzy, small head, which immediately diminishes to a small coating.

Smells of leaf wrapped ripe peaches, offering a bright fruitiness, which comes close to actually cut a peach into half and enjoy its aromas. This inherits not only the fruit‘s pulp but also its stone pith quality, adding a soft soothing quality to the sprizzy, slightly perfumy and floral fruits.

Has a higher, finely nuanced carbonation, with an effervescent finish, among a lighter, yet versatile and intense lighter body.

While this is doubtlessly focussed entirely on peaches, the flavors of the beer offer an initial mineralic quality, white bread dough and matured, still slightly bitter herbs. Peaches enter the palate with an early fruit sugar peak, which stays till the end, but fades down slowly and constantly. The fruit itself is defined by a pleasant tartness, sweeter peach pulp, a light moldy touch among a flowery mildness, which allows a rustic barnyard profile, consisting of leather and cream cheese, to cut through. Develops an almost creamy finish with an astonishing smoothness of the fruits and a finely beaded mouthfeel, leading to a surprising, well interweaved juiciness, in which the maintaining tartness manages to shine.

This tastes great, everything comes together perfectly, due to the beer‘s awesome mouthfeel and balance. It is just as complex as a Lambic with a cleverly integrated tartness, labeling this unmistakably a sour, but with a complexity which assures to be able to pick up the beer‘s subtle nuances.

B3 - I have to say I like how this is not as acidic as the other vintages. I mean sure, it’s tart, definitely, but it’s millions of peaches, peaches for free/me/us! Dug it.
